When searching for the perfect Central NJ wedding venue, look no further than the Sterling Ballroom in the DoubleTree of Tinton Falls to suit your wedding catering needs. The Sterling Ballroom can be used for many events such as weddings, bar & bat mitzvahs, and Sweet 16 birthday parties. As one can see in our latest YouTube video below, the Sterling Ballroom can be used for both the wedding ceremony and the reception. The difference between the two set-ups is so drastic that you forget you were in the same room only moments earlier. After the ceremony, a cocktail hour takes place in the Sapphire Room while the Sterling Ballroom is transformed into a beautiful reception space. To view more wedding pictures of the Sterling Ballroom visit our website.
Tour the Sterling Ballroom by watching the Youtube video above featuring a typical wedding ceremony, and cocktail hour setup in the Sapphire Ballroom. There are many options of food displayed served by our enthusiastic workers. Hotels Unlimited invites you to take a look for yourself.
With the continuing success of the construction of our wedding fruit sculpture video, we thought that we would continue our Central NJ wedding catering video series by including a fast-forward video construction of a vegetable platter. These beautifully hand crafted pieces are created on-site by our executive chefs and come as a standard with our elite catering packages. We promise that our food displays are just as gorgeous as they are delicious. Bon Appetit!
When planning any NJ wedding or event, one always looks to friends and family for advice or input. From choosing the flowers and colors to asking the fun and awkward questions like “Does this dress make my butt look big?”, ”Where did you get THOSE shoes?” to “Where should I go for an amazing wedding?” Ok. Well that last one is clearly obvious, which is why we need your help in spreading the word.

One of the main factors that any event host has to consider when planning for a central NJ wedding, sweet 16, bat/ bar mitzvah or corporate event is the location of the venue. Of course, a venue close to your location is always the best choice to make things more convenient for both the host and the guests attending the event. Today, Hotels Unlimited is announcing a deal for locals only, because we know and love our communities.
Locals who have a valid proof of mailing address in the same hometown as any of our five locations can claim 10% off their event.
Happy Halloweeneveryone! As a reminder, today is the last day to book for our Halloween 2011 wedding deal, our Treat or Treat wedding special. In the spirit of Halloween, we are offering some fun tips of how to make a Halloween wedding timeless and classy without looking cheesy with plastic bats and ghosts hanging everywhere.
Halloween has one of the most brilliant color contrasts of any holiday in the calendar year. Purple and orange are a very bold color contrast (as they are both located at opposite ends of the color spectrum). If one would like to include a tertiary color to soften the palette a light green is usually used to calm this color palette down. Of course white can also be used if a bride desires to have a white flower in the bouquet.
There are all kinds of fun classic themes that Central NJ brides can choose from when trying to include Halloween into their wedding. Here are a few fun ideas.
Phantom of the Opera- This 1988 classic Broadway musical featuring the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, features the love story that still continues to run on Broadway today. Featuring aged parchment scrolls of sheet music and red roses, this theme is sure to leave guests bringing down the house, but hopefully without the chandelier.
Victorian Masquerade Ball- If a bride plans to have her wedding on Halloween, one might as well embrace the concept of masks. The masquerade ball can bring a dress-up element of fun for your guests, as well as a fun favor for them to take home. If younger children are involved or invited to the wedding, you can also have a craft table where your younger guests can design their own masks.
The groom stands at the altar. The bride comes marching down the aisle and the father gives her away. Suddenly it happens and one can barely speak to open their mouths to say the words “I do.” And we all know the script: “I, ____ take you ________ to be my lawfully wedded husband/ wife. To have and to hold…in sickness and in health… for better for worse… for richer for poorer… until death do us part.”
But today we ask our audience are these immortal words.. well, immortal? With the marriage success rate being what it is, one has to wonder if the meaning of these words is changing or if they still have the same powerful resonance as they did back then. Of course language and its meaning is subject to personal interpretation and cultural norms, which is why today we ask should couples getting married write and recite their own vows at their ceremony?
According to a recent article found on Business Insurance, event planners are showing a trend of NOT insuring their events. According to research, the article suggests that many of the 50,000 event planners across the country are independently operated and will only get insurance for an event at the client’s request.

But like anyone else, we are only human and cannot control everything. For example in last August, Hurricane Irene had ruined more than 6,000 weddings across the east coast according to a report from CNN Money. The average cost of a wedding is about $30,000 and about a whopping $70,000 in New York City.. ouch!
So would you consider insuring your wedding or large gala event? As we all have learned throughout life, poop happens and so does the weather. Although we always can hope for the best for anyone’s big day, we can only do just that. Hope.
