A Quaint Village with Four Seasons of Fun

The Bethel area offers a remarkable and romantic location for your destination wedding. Imagine the setting you have dreamed about: a beautiful mansion or mountaintop scene, Bethel’s idyllic village with white-steepled churches and a gazebo on the green, alongside a waterfall or a mountain stream, or under the Artist’s Covered Bridge. You can have it all here. Bethel’s quaint community is small, but it offers the services you need to make your wedding day perfect. There are many full-service hotels in the area with staff to help you plan your day from start to finish; caterers to bring in gourmet food to your remote mountain lodging; spas for your pre-wedding primping; florists who will fulfill your desired theme within your budget; tent, chair, and dance floor rentals; and even jewelers who can make your rings in a style reflective of western Maine, using native gems and Maine craftsmanship! Bethel’s motto is “four seasons of fun,” and they mean it! Whether your guests prefer to put their feet up and use this time to restore themselves in peace and quiet or to pursue an outdoor activity, they will find plenty to do, for any ability and budget.
