Are children invited to the wedding?
While we love spending time with your littles, the venue is beautiful but not kid-friendly. If you will have an infant that you need to keep near you, let us know as soon you can and we'll look into whether we can arrange a nursing room. Otherwise, the Cape loves families and there are professional sitter services locally for Saturday night if you'd still like to bring the whole family out for the long weekend.
How do I get to Cape Cod?
You start by booking a flight into Boston's Logan International Airport. From there, you can either rent a car and drive straight to the Cape (about 90 min) OR get the Plymouth & Brockton bus from the airport to Hyannis or Barnstable and request a ride from there (Uber and Lyft do exist on the Cape, just not in massive quantities). The Langsen family has taken a lot of those buses over the years and this is a good option if you're coordinating with a larger group with a car arriving at a different time. There's more on travel (from both the US and UK) over here, too.
Where should we stay?
That's SUCH a good question that we made a special section for it. The short answer? You've got options. The wedding is at Wychmere Beach Club so center your searches around Harwich, Dennis, Chatham, Brewster and Orleans.
How do I get to the wedding?
There is parking at the venue if you'd like to drive, otherwise an Uber or taxi will do the trick. If you're staying in Harwichport, you may even be able to walk as it's very close to Main St!
What's the vibe?
Jessi's very glad you asked: English Garden on Cape Cod. That doesn't actually mean much for you though, so wear what you're comfortable in and consider it beach smart. Martin and his groomsmen will be in navy suits, bridesmaids will be in whatever floral thing they like best and Jessi's in white. Hats and fascinators are encouraged because Jessi absolutely loves them.
Is anything going on the rest of the weekend?
Friday night we'll be at Swan River in Dennisport for welcome drinks from 8pm after the rehearsal and BOY WILL WE BE HAPPY TO SEE YOU! Sunday after the wedding, we'll pick a beach and set up shop with coffee and several boxes of donuts and muffins from the Hole in One. We'll confirm this one closer in but as with Friday, everybody's welcome. Martin also has a hunch the next Avengers movie will be coming out at this time, so a discreet cinema trip may be planned...
What's the weather going to be like?
New England, much like Olde England, could do almost anything in May. It could be a gentle rain over a cool, moody bay. It could be summer sun and blue skies. Layers are encouraged, we promise it's beautiful either way and we chose the venue because it's beautiful no matter the weather.
What should I eat?
If I could make you a BINGO card, I would. Some Langsen favorites include Arnolds or PJ's for the best beachy junk food fix, Sundae School or the Chocolate Sparrow for an ice cream cone, Blackfish or Viera for a nice dinner out, the Red Inn for dinner and the Governor Bradford for drag queen karaoke in Provincetown.
When we're not at the wedding, what should we do?
Rent bikes and take on the beautiful, forested Cape Cod rail trail, take the ferry to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard, check out the shops in Chatham or the galleries in Wellfleet, visit the National Seashore for a walk along some of the world's most beautiful beaches, go whale watching out of Provincetown and treat yourself to a walk down Commercial Street afterward. Cape Cod's little towns are so sweet and full of independent shops and artists--we cannot wait to share this very special place with each of you.
