Celebrating its fourth year of putting the “Destination” in Destination Wedding, the Southern Ocean County Chamber/LBI Region DMO welcomes engaged couples to the 2012 premiere wedding planning event taking place on the Jersey Shore, including VIP Experience Contest Winners from NJWedding.com
Wedding planning with a creative spin that introduces new visitors to the LBI Region, the Wedding Road Show proved it had what it takes to win recognition from across the state during the 2010 NJ Governor Tourism Awards. Changing the way weddings are marketed throughout New Jersey, the Wedding Road Show has put Long Beach Island on the maps as more than just a beach wedding, it is an experience that can only be provided by the local wedding venues and services that capture that LBI feel.
This year’s Wedding Road Show is April 22, 2012 beginning at one of three registration sites including Tuckerton Seaport, Holiday Inn Manahawkin or Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce office in Ship Bottom. These locations will all be ready to welcome brides and their entourages at 9:30 am. The brides will receive detailed maps and programs that will allow them to create their own touring schedule until 4 pm. Brides have an opportunity to take a self guided tour through the area’s finest venues, meeting, greeting and eating their way through wedding locations and services. Every registered stop the bride visits she will acquire a signature from the vendors located there, the more signatures she receives the entries she will have for the grand prize.
This year’s prize is all about the fashion with the bride having the opportunity to win her choice of wedding gown from Demetrios Bridal “Destination Romance” Collection, choice of five tuxedos from the Premiere Line at Dante Zeller Tuxedo at Uniformity in Manahawkin, Wedding Bands by Novella Jewelry Design and Engagement Photo Shoot by Creatively Yours Dayna. Media Sponsors include New Jersey Bride Magazine, NJWedding.com, WedAlert.com, and Demetrios Bridal. Presenting sponsors are the New Jersey Division of Travel and Tourism and The LBI Region DMO/ Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce. Also new this year, is development for the LBI Wedding Road Show “Mobile APP” which will help brides during the event and throughout their wedding planning process.
In addition to the grand prize package, NJWedding.com ran a contest for a VIP Experience at the Wedding Road Show, including an overnight stay at Daddy O Boutique Hotel & Restaurant, gift baskets from Camille’s Floral Design and A Sweet Memory, and a white stretch limousine ride during Sunday’s event from Lacey Limousines.
