Wedding Venue

Finding the perfect wedding venue is one of those magical moments in your wedding plans. As you stand in an elegant, romantic ballroom, or find yourself in a beautifully-bloomed outdoor garden wedding locale, your wedding vision will come to life. Many of our northern New Jersey and New York City brides say that when they found their dream wedding location, they just knew it was The One. They could see all the elements of their dream wedding, see their guests having the time of their lives, and see themselves enjoying their gorgeous celebration.

To choose your perfect wedding venue, begin your research by talking to recent brides and grooms you know who married at the New Jersey banquet hall you have in mind. This is a top way to get the inside story on what it was like to plan with the wedding venue’s staff, what they loved about their setting, what they enjoyed most about the planning process. Talk also to people who have planned bar mitzvahs and bat mitzvahs or other big celebrations at your ideal wedding venues, since they’ll have valuable input, too. Read more…

Winter Wedding Trends

Winter Wedding Trends

In addition to winter wedding flowers mentioned in our previous post, a number of top wedding décor trends have emerged this year. Again, our wedding couples like to avoid cliché red and white décor for their elegant winter wedding designs, choosing instead to use a blend of red, cranberry and plum to add more depth to their wedding décor style. The richer tones convey a more styled effect that our New Jersey and New York City couples prefer for their wedding celebrations.

Winter Wedding Colors

In addition to the red/cranberry/plum motif, a top wedding décor trend is using deep jewel tones such as purples, blues, and greens. A top trend in weddings now is the peacock feather combining these three shades, and we see more peacock-inspired effects for winter wedding designs.

Cream colors are also more in vogue, and to convey a sense of romance, wedding trend reports say that a trio of cream and champagne colors may be accented with deeper navy or auburgine. Read more…
