LONG BEACH ISLAND, N.J.Ocean views, rolling dunes and pristine white beaches coupled with picture-perfect wedding venues are all part of the spectacle at the Sixth Annual “Award-winning” Wedding Road Show in Long Beach Island (LBI), New Jersey on April 27th, 2014.

The free tour offers detailed viewing of venues, dozens of professional wedding services, refreshments, multiple prizes and other amenities throughout the day.  New to this year’s show is a Saturday night “Fabulous Brides Night Out” at the Long Beach Island Foundation featuring a fashion show, samples and mocktails.
