Calling all brides-to-be! The Herald’s newly designed 2016 Wedding & Special Events Guide is your one-stop shop to planning the perfect destination wedding in Cape May County, and it’s hitting the shelves in just four short weeks. From the personal wedding stories to the “Star Selections” directory, every page is bound to inspire and excite you in the planning process of your own big day.

When browsing through the guide, you’ll not only find a fresh, elegant design, but also love stories of brides and grooms who were married right here in Cape May County. Allow their beautiful stories to inspire your own as the brides and grooms reflect on their planning processes, the vendors they chose and more.

Our new “Star Selections” directory will help you easily choose all of the details of your wedding day with information on local florists, photographers, salons, venues and much more. Here’s a sneak peek of some of our “Star Selections”:

If you’re looking for a venue with an intimate setting for your bridal shower, reception, rehearsal dinner or even ceremony, The Carriage House at the Emlen Physick Estate in Cape May provides a backdrop of the beautifully landscaped grounds of the Physick Estate and can accommodate up to 75 guests. If you envision a larger, more majestic wedding, The Grand Hotel of Cape May is uniquely suited to provide you with the most memorable storybook day. For a change of scenery, Avalon Links Restaurant at the Avalon Golf Club offers exceptional views of the picturesque Avalon Golf Course. If you want an elegant, sophisticated, one-of-a-kind wedding cake, visit Baked Pastry Shop in Marmora to design your gourmet creation. For DJ entertainment, photo booth fun and more, check out Shore Sound Entertainment to have the time of your life. Don’t forget to thank your guests for coming! Favors from The Original Fudge Kitchen provide your guests with a classic taste of the Jersey Shore, or for more unique treats, favors from Cape May Peanut Butter Co. help you spread the love. Something you may not have thought of is preserving your gown; consider Court House Cleaners in Cape May Court House so your dress maintains its beauty for a lifetime. Last but not least, you’ll need a little help from Joe Canal’s in Rio Grande for all of your celebratory spirits, wines and beer.
