If you’re getting married in New Jersey, you have your pick of an incredible range of wedding sites: From private estates and country clubs to historic landmarks and amazing museums, the state boasts just about every type of event location you can think of. To give you an idea of what’s available, we’ve put together a little “tasting menu”—10 hand-selected places that we love, each one from a different venue category.
Nowadays, with so much digital wedding inspiration, you can literally hold all your wedding ideas in the palm of your hand (thank you, smart phone!) You’d think this would have simplified wedding planning, but in reality the limitless options can leave even the most decisive of couples feeling bewildered. How are you supposed to commit to a Gatsby-style wedding when you’re tempted by an effortlessly chic beach ceremony one minute, and tantalized by a down-home barn reception the next?
If you’re planning a small wedding, you may feel a little like Goldilocks as you try to find a place that fits your event “just right”. But if you’re searching in Chicago you’re in luck! The Windy City offers plenty of options for hosting an intimate wedding, from a private mansion or vintage loft to a sleek yacht or Italian restaurant. While some of the venues we’ve listed also have spaces that are great for larger groups, all of them happily accommodate cozier celebrations.
Getting ready to send out your wedding invitations?? Here’s a little secret for you.
