Choosing the Perfect Maine Barn Wedding Venue Planner: 7 Expert Tips


When planning your dream Maine barn wedding, selecting the right wedding planner can make all the difference in bringing your vision to life. At Granite Ridge Estate & Barn, we do not require a planner, yet we understand the importance of a stress-free and memorable celebration.


We’ve worked with event planners, day-of-coordinators, and almost every wedding vendor in the New England area, so we have some experience with this. We’ve seen it all! And, of course, some brides choose to forgo a planner altogether even though we have seen what they can bring to the table. If you are choosing to work with a wedding planner, here are some items you may want to consider.

  1. Experience Matters:

   Look for a planner with a wealth of experience in the wedding industry, particularly in line with your wedding vision.

   Consider planners who have a preferred vendor list, as it often includes trusted professionals who can enhance your wedding experience.

  1. Flexible Service Packages:

   Opt for planners offering flexible service packages tailored to your specific needs and preferences.

  1. Personalized Decor:

   Choose a planner who encourages your creative input and can guide you in crafting your desired wedding décor.
