How To Use WDE

Start by browsing the Local Knowledge section for a little light reading, browse the Photo Gallery for some dreaming and then visit the Local Vendors section to start finding the help you'll need to plan your perfect Maine wedding. To plan a wedding means you'll be making lists. Oh yes--lots of lists! However, we've made it easy for you.

Wedding Worksheet

Our Wedding Worksheet can help you assemble your vendors from multiple categories on one page, make notes about your conversations with them and remove the vendors you decide against. It requires registration to use the functionality of the Wedding Worksheet but the rest of the site you can browse before you register. If you are using a vendor not listed on WDE please let us know so we can be sure to add them to the website.

Beautiful. You're on your way.

Local Vendors

Within the Local Vendors section you will find everything from Cakes to Caterers down to the very last wedding detail. This exhaustive list is the hard work born of hundreds of weddings before you, a list that will save you countless hours if you had to do this by yourself. More importantly, this list features reputable, quality services recommended by highly satisfied wedding parties.

Chances are you will need to pick the location first. Have a look at our article on Maine Wedding Locations, the first in a series that will introduce some of the most incredible and diverse wedding settings in the state. Then visit the Ceremony Locations category in our Local Vendors section to add your favorites to your wedding worksheet.

Select any of the categories within the left column to locate the services you require. If you have selected a location for the wedding and want to narrow your search to only vendors that offer services in that region simply select the region from the drop down list in the upper right corner of the vendor listing results page.

Local Knowledge
