Weddings in Provincetown: Brass Key Style


It’s almost May which means Wedding Season is upon us. Many people (me included!) think of Brass Key Guesthouse as their favorite getaway stop in Ptown.  I’m thinking perfect lounging by the pool, cocktails in Shipwreck Lounge, and those guestrooms!  Guess what?  We do weddings too!


If vanilla is your favorite flavor—you may want to look elsewhere.  But if you want your special day to fit who you are, Brass Key may be just what you are looking for: a unique off-the-beaten-path wedding venue.  Comfortable.  Customizable.  Classy.  If you’ve stayed here before, you already know about our service and the laid-back, comfortable vibe that we strive for here.


For weddings, we have a new Special Events Pavilion featuring beautiful gardens and a large pergola—a setting that offers privacy and intimacy.  Plus, staying at the Guesthouse, you get the added perks of built-in accommodations and bar service.  For more formal receptions, we can work with our sister property located just across the street: The Crowne Pointe Historic Inn & Spa, with its award-winning restaurant, The Pointe. We have professional wedding planning services available, so you can be as involved (or hands-off) as you’d like in planning the details of the day.  There’s a variety of packages to choose from and we can handle parties of anywhere from 50 to 150 guests.


Let’s face it, no one wants their wedding to be an automatic, cookie cutter affair. That’s why we only do one event at a time.  All attention is on you. Convinced yet?  Click here to get into the nitty-gritty details and see photos of past events.

Beyond Provincetown: Discover Truro

Truth be told, there’s so much to do in Provincetown that visitors really don’t need to venture beyond town lines.  There’s also this thing that happens whenever anyone visits Cape Cod.  I know cause I was a summer kid. Wherever you end up, you tend to stay there and settle into your routines. You come, you park, you vacay—whatever that means to you: a cloudless sunny day at your favorite beach, mid-afternoon ice cream break at your favorite shop, dinner at your favorite restaurant, morning paper and coffee at your fav bakery/coffee shop. Repeat every summer weekend.

But perhaps this time you are looking for a bit of an adventure. A short mystery ride? Or better yet, a bike ride? If so, check out Truro.  Sandwiched between Provincetown’s busy, rolicky buzz and Wellfleet’s just-a-little-bit-out-there quirkiness, Truro is like Ptown’s cute little sister.  It is also perhaps the last bastion (at least for now) of Cape Cod wild.  You can still get lost there.  The rambles through the National Seashore bring you temporarily back to what the Cape must have felt like before the 20th century found it. Truro is also one of the hottest spots on the Cape for new construction and development so who knows how long it will stay quiet.  All good reasons to put aside one day of your next Ptown jaunt for a little Truro exploring.
