I got engaged in Maine the 2nd to last day in May on a hotel balcony! Your plan to have dinner on the balcony sounds amazing! I do know that it does get chilly, especially closer to the water, so you want to make sure you have something to keep you warm.

Or you could use Rent the Runway:

Also something a bit different and fun https://www.renttherunway.com/shop/designers/bb_dakota/cream_aviator_leather_jacket

I just ordered a hand knit shawl from etsy to wear with my dress. There are tons options on etsy, I think a really gorgeous detailed shawl would look great, or even a pashmina scarf would be very elegant with your dress.

 I would wear a white or blush angora short cardigan . I think the lacy or  crocheted ones  tend to  look a bit bed jackety. And shawls can look a bit , well,  dowdy.

That beautiful  dress warrants something really nice .

 xo_futuremrsbear :  elderbee :  I immediately thought of an angora cardigan as well. It would look really nice with that dress, as demonstrated by the Duchess of Cambridge who wore a similar dress with an angora cardigan for her evening wedding festivities.

I got married in October and did an outdoor ceremony. It was quite cold the day of our wedding so I found a beautiful navy velvet blazer that I wore with my dress before and after the ceremony…and for a few pictures because I loved the look and is really was freezing. 

Here’s snapshot my sister got when we did pictures.

SoniaRen2 :  Sounds like you’ve never been in the UK in April…Maine in summer it is not! 😉
