Provincetown is a wonderful destination if you are looking to celebrate your greatest love in one of the loveliest places on the East Coast. The sand dunes and salty air of this colorful seaside town draw couples from all over. A perfect spot for a romantic getaway, a honeymoon or anniversary, Provincetown is also a memorable place for your wedding. The town boasts many top-notch catering options such as Cosmos Catering and reception spots including the Sage Inn & Lounge.  

For those looking for something completely Cape Cod, here are three picturesque Provincetown wedding spots to consider.

1. Say "I do" at the base of the historic Pilgrim Monument. The Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum at High Pole Hill Road in Provincetown offers a stunning setting for your nuptials. You and your guests will enjoy panoramic views of the town, Cape Cod Bay and Provincetown Harbor.  Dedicated in 1910, it took three years to build the 252-foot monument (the tallest all-granite monument in the United States). Receptions may be held on either the East or West lawns. Museums galleries may also be opened for receptions.

2. If you are in the market for something a bit more rustic, but breathtaking, consider a sand dune ceremony courtesy of Art's Dune Tours. You and your guests will be whisked away to the dunes of the Cape where you will exchange vows in one of the most amazing and pristine settings on the Cape. 

3. While the grounds of the Pilgrim Monument offer fantastic views of Provincetown Harbor, you may also opt to be married on the harbor. Landlubbers may wish to plan their ceremony at MacMillian Pier, the bustling heart of this seaside village. If its the sea you and your betrothed yearn for, why not wed aboard a boat? There are many options including a ceremony aboard a sailing vessel like the Schooner Hindu.Some brides and grooms choose to marry on land, but arrive at their ceremony by sea.
