What to Bring

Practicalities and Attire:

The foot paths and rugged coastline of Doe Bay Resort, and Orcas Island in general, can be slippery, especially if we happen to get some rain. Stilletto heels will be hazardous to your health! Although the San Juans are known to lie in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains, mid-June can bring showers. Please bring sensible shoes for cobbled beach and wooded trail, and pack some rain gear to ensure that it won't rain!

Overall, dress comfortably. Jackets are optional, stylish vests will be appreciated, and fashion statements are always welcome! Nights can be chilly if a wind blows off Rosario Strait, so warmies are wise. Because parts of Doe Bay are not electrified, a headlamp or flashlight is also recommended.

Celebratory paraphernalia:

  • Inspiring thoughts and funny stories
  • Musical instruments and dancing shoes
  • Scrapbook and memory box contributions
  • Outdoor gear


    We hope your primary contribution will be attendance and participation -- through hugs, wise words, and cherished thoughts -- in our wedding. If you intend to send us a gift, please note that we are registered with R.E.I., Williams and Sonoma, the Pottery Barn, and Tiffany's.
