Weddings in Bar Harbor

Say “I Do“ in Bar Harbor!

You’ve said “yes” to him, and the dress, the wedding party, and everything are ready to go. Everything is just about perfect, but there’s one piece missing—the perfect place to say, “I do.” That place is Bar Harbor. There’s something magical about this quaint coastal town, a celebrated destination with rich history and culture. Imagine the natural beauty of the punctuated ocean cliffs, rocky beaches, glacier-formed lakes and valleys, unobstructed mountain vistas, and boreal forest surrounding you on your day. Bar Harbor offers many options to make your special day as memorable as it should be. With thousands of rooms and exceptional inns, banquet halls, and restaurants, you’ll find just what your heart desires.

Bar Harbor is an unexpected and romantic place with all the amenities to make it happen. Travel to and from Bar Harbor is relatively easy for all attendees, a five-hour drive from Boston and 50 miles from Bangor International Airport.

Your destination wedding on Mount Desert Island is also the perfect getaway for your friends and family. With Acadia National Park so close, there are endless activities for your guests to enjoy.

For your adventurous guests, hiking one of the many trails in the park or cycling along the carriage roads would be a fun afternoon activity. And, for your guests looking for more of a leisurely visit, they might enjoy world-famous popovers at the Jordan Pond House or explore downtown’s many shops and museums.
