Hey Central NJ wedding couples, when you are looking for your Jersey Shore wedding venue or picking your event theme this year, the editing staff at Hotels Unlimited needs to issue this 2012 wedding trend alert; Beware of the Proud Peacock. The peacock has a symbolic meaning for immortality which is only appropriate when getting married to the love of your life.
Many of our 2012 NJ brides have chosen this lovely animal for its blue, green, teal, aquamarine, and purple hues. This color combination looks great on many people and also looks fantastic with our matching ballroom Hollywood uplighting! The variety of exotic colors for bridesmaid’s dresses and peacock feathers make a great decorative enhancer. Particularly, we have seen peacock feathers everywhere from stationary, in bouquets, table centerpieces , and hair pieces.
Insider Tips & Staff Favorites: If any bride looking for a wedding venue in Central NJ would like to execute a peacock theme into their event, the Hotels Unlimited staff is here to help. Here are three quick tips on how to make the Proud Peacock pop at your event.
Tip #1: When booking your event at any Hotels Unlimited venue, guests can have their choice of napkin and chair bow colors. These small accents truly pop when setting the table and can pull the room together when taking photos.
Tip #2: Lighting. When taking photos, lighting is everything. It really accents the entire room and wedding venue. Lighting can change the ambiance and the mood of the event and leave lasting impressions in the photos. Although we have in house lighting, some of our brides also take advantage of lighting packages provided by our DJ partners at SCE event group.
Tip #3: The Cake: The cake can be decorated with fondant striping to match peacock feathers. The feathers are a unique, versatile bold statement that can go with many different facets of your day.

A wedding is a once in a lifetime event, and with it comes a MOTHER IN LAW monster lurking in the shadows…. Ok, although the reality is not all mothers- in- law and mothers- of brides are terrors. Some moms are quite nothing short of angelic guardians who guide us all through the process of life through their infinite wisdom and unrequited love. (I love you mom!)
As we all know in New Jersey weddings, family is family and no one should be disrespectin’ nobody’s mom and brides are no exception. (So put down the claws Bridezilla). After all, part of the whole marriage process is a joining of two families and our central New Jersey wedding venues celebrate this unity of family by treating our brides as family of our own.
After seeing an article posted by OneWed featuring the What Not to Wear for MOBs and MOGs, Hotels Unlimited decided to take a crack at this (with of course a bit of sensible tongue in cheek and a drawing ability of a fifth grader, since that is how we roll here in Mercer, Monmouth, and Ocean County, NJ)
How does the bride then ask the mother in law about her attire for the big day?
After deciding on a color palette and a theme, it is time to do some dress shopping. Why not make a day of it and enjoy it? Take the mom(s) out to lunch, order a few drinks, and have a fun day of shopping together. Get to know the woman you are intending to dress and imagine what her wedding dress was once like, because she too was once in your shoes.
Some tactful ways to approach this can be covered in conversation and in the right questions:what style of dress mom wore to her wedding?, what were her wedding colors?, who was her favorite fashionista-type celebrities? Somewhere behind that mother -in-law -death- glare- of- love is a woman.
WHAT IF MY MOM…. Says she likes 80s grunge and would like to be dressed out of a combination of a dumpster and Lady Gaga? (and please, no meat dress at my wedding!!)
Although that is a tough combo to salvage, even Lady Gaga has had her classy moments that could make any woman beautiful. Show mom the Lady Gaga-esque styles that you would like and see what she thinks. Fortunately, there are enough styles and variety that it can loosely tie into the bridal theme without making the mother-monster miserable. (yes, pun was intended.)
When all else fails, at least the bride can say she tried. Although a NJ wedding is one of the biggest milestones, one has to ask the important questions of what truly matters: family. After all, remember that the family will still exist long after the wedding is over so it is best not to burn any bridges since you will be with them until death do you part.

Find the perfect spot in the Caribbean for your honeymoon after your Central NJ wedding. There are many places to choose from, each with their own unique features. Some of the hottest spots in the Caribbean include Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, and Turks and Caicos. So which one is the right place for you and your significant other.
According to WeddingWire.com, Aruba is an island with beautiful soft beaches and lots of entertainment. During your honeymoon in Aruba, you can choose from many activities including snorkeling, golfing, hiking, and horseback riding. Also, the nightlife in Aruba is very lively with plenty of bars and casinos to choose from.
The Bahamas is one of the biggest honeymoon destinations due to its variety in entertainment, luxury, and beauty.

It also has such natural beauty to be explored.
Another hot honeymoon spot is Turks and Caicos, with only eight out of forty islands occupied. Here you can indulge yourself in shopping, fine dining, entertainment, and travel to caves and natural forests.

Did you ever think about getting married? Of course, we all have! But now imagine that you are standing at the altar completely 100% naked! This is something not many people envision on their wedding day. Although there were nine couples who decided to do just that in Jamaica on Valentine’s Day. According to an article in USA Today, these couples got married under the hot Jamaica sun in their birthday suits.
Personally, I do not think I would ever be able to do that, but I respect them for doing something they believe in. What is your opinion? Would you ever marry the love of your life completely nude? If your answer is no then you need to start looking for a venue! Look no further than the banquet halls of Hotels Unlimited in Central NJ, including The Sterling Ballroom, The Windsor Ballroom, The Versailles Ballroom, The Crystal Ballroom and The Atlantis Ballroom.
