Tastings, open houses and a Lighthouse Grand Giveaway makes wedding planning at the Jersey Shore an experience like none other happening on April 10, 2011
LONG BEACH ISLAND, NJ – Last year, brides from as far as North Carolina, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New York took this self guided tour that allows first hand access to wedding reception sites, wedding service professionals and the variety of options that are available for a LBI Destination Wedding. This free event will be held on Sunday April 10th beginning at 9:30 am and running until 4 pm. It is open to brides and their entourages so they may meet, greet and taste their way through 11 venues located in Stafford, LBI and Tuckerton earning prizes along the way. This year’s venues Holiday Inn Manahawkin (Registration Point), Mallard Island Yacht Club, Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts & Sciences (scheduled event), The Sea Shell Resort & Beach Club, The Stateroom, Surf City Yacht Club and the Tuckerton Seaport (Registration Point).
Pre-event festivities kick off on April 9th at the Mt. Burton Gallery in Surf City as they present “Top That,” an exhibit featuring contemporary wedding cake toppers. Brides can also enter a VIP Contest Experience on NJWedding.com to win an overnight stay at the Daddy O Boutique Hotel in Brant Beach, along with a welcome gift basket by Camille’s Floral Designs and an LBI-themed cookie basket by A Sweet Memory.
The more stops the brides make, the more signatures they get on their entry form, the better the chance for Wedding Road Show prizes featuring a Lighthouse Wedding Grand Giveaway: includes: Wedding Ceremony/Reception site at the Tuckerton Lighthouse at the Tuckerton Seaport April or November 2012 , Wedding Buffet for 80 Catered by Scojo’s Catering, Wedding Invitations by Stephanie Somodi – Designing Your Most Inviting Day, Custom Wedding Cake for 80 by Tammy’s Cake Walk, Wedding Story Video and Edit Package by J & S Video, Custom Wedding Floral Package by Camille Floral Designs and Frank’s Flower and Gift Shoppe, favors by a Sweet Memory, photography by Portraits by the Bay and a Wedding Night Stay by JD Thompson Inn. In addition to the event prizes, each vendor will be offering discounts and contests of their own.
