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 an 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 “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 beautiful waterfront venue for your shower or rehearsal dinner, look no further than the Deauville Inn in Strathmere and its fine food, delicious drinks and picturesque views. If you prefer an offshore venue, consider the warm atmosphere of the Bellevue Tavern in Cape May Court House, complete with an Upstairs Banquet Room.

When it comes to choosing a reception venue, The Grand Hotel of Cape May is uniquely suited to provide you with the most memorable storybook day, all while overlooking the beautiful Jersey Cape. For a change of scenery, Avalon Links Restaurant in Cape May Court House offers exceptional views of the Avalon Golf Course and customizable packages to fit any budget. Wildwood Golf & Country Club in Cape May Court House boasts similar views of its magnificent golf course, and has a neutral color scheme so you can decorate with any color palette. If you’re looking for a setting directly on the water, the Yacht Club of Sea Isle City creates a gorgeous scene with delicious fare and premium spirits.

Time to satisfy your sweet tooth! If you want an elegant, sophisticated, one-of-a-kind wedding cake, visit Baked Pastry Shop in Marmora to design your gourmet creation.

When the big day comes, let Nine Salon & Spa in Rio Grande pamper you and your bridal party with top quality services to fit your needs.

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.

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.
