Champagne, the perfect accessory to any party celebration: holidays, birthdays, New Year’s, and of course any Central NJ wedding. After all, what is a New Year’s resolution without making a wish at the bottom of a toasting glass at midnight? Today Hotels Unlimited asks our audience: is Champagne really limited to only black tie affairs? This particular blogger (and aficionado of Champagne) thinks not. A good Champagne, ( like any other type of fine wine) is not just limited to one kind of occasion, but rather a key ingredient in some delicious recipes to be shared with good friends and family at any time.
A classic drink of Champagne and orange juice, the mimosa serves great versatility and is also a classy twist for any Sunday brunch. For a more flavorful twist, try adding some lychee for a sweet delight.
What girl doesn’t love a good chat with friends while enjoying a pitcher of Sangria? Although Sangria is traditionally made with a wine base, Champagne can add a light bubbly flair for your cocktail by simply adding your favorite fruit to your champagne. For a refreshing holiday twist, try using orange slices and some sprigs of fresh mint.

“Santa baby did I forget to mention one little thing? A ring.” Although Christmas and the holiday season is a popular time to propose, there are many different styles of rings that can reflect the style of the bride. This cute article by bridal guide, gives some cute insight into cuts of diamond engagement rings.
The look: Also known as brilliant-cut, this tried-and-true shape reflects more light than any other, and is the most popular. Avril Lavigne showed her traditional side by wearing a round diamond engagement ring.
This choice says you’re: Trustworthy and easygoing.
The look: Inspired by the Asscher, this glamorous choice is also a rectangular step-cut shape. It has fewer facets than some of the other shapes, so look for an emerald-cut that offers maximum brilliance.
This choice says you’re: Efficient and straightforward.
The look: Rectangular with curved sides, the cushion-cut first hit big in the 18th century. A recent resurgence in popularity has given it a modern-meets-vintage feel. Ben Affleck gave Jennifer Garner a cushion-cut rock.
This choice says you’re: Organized and daring.
The look: This relatively new square shape, with a modern, understated feel, combines a sparkly, brilliant effect with a geometric step-cut. You can attribute its spectacular glitter to extra faceting around the rim.
This choice says you’re: Decisive and fun-loving.
The look: This century-old shape, symbolizing love and devotion, should be well proportioned for optimum sparkle. Kid Rock proposed to Pamela Anderson with a yellow heart-shaped diamond.
This choice says you’re: Sentimental and dreamy.
The look: Resembling a teardrop, a pear-shaped diamond has the fire and beauty of a round shape, but with a less conventional look. This shape can also make a wide finger look slimmer.
This choice says you’re: Even-tempered and adaptable.
The look: If you love the gorgeous sparkle of a round, brilliant-cut diamond but still want something unique, consider an oval. A fresh take on a timeless style, this new shape came about in the early 1960s. Actor Jerry O’Connell recently gave his betrothed fashionista, Rebecca Romijn, an oval-shaped sparkler.
This choice says you’re: Risk-taking and creative.
The look: Square with angular corners, this shape dates back to the late 1800s. If you look closely, you’ll see that it’s step-cut, meaning the facets are rectangular and seem to descend into the stone.
This choice says you’re: Feminine and meticulous.

According to mycentraljersey.com, New Jersey legislation has passed a bill allowing for couples to marry without a three day waiting period. Legislators say that this will allow for couples vacationing in Atlantic City to experience the same kind of convenience as those who travel to Las Vegas. New Jersey is the only state in the Northeast region to offer an immediate marriage as PA, NY, DE, and MD all have a waiting period. Otherwise couples will have to travel to Connecticut and Rhode Island for a same day marriage license.
So what does this mean for New Jersey couples? Couples looking to be married will now be paying a higher license fee at $60 instead of $28. Also, traveling couples do not need to make advanced travel plans to apply for the license. Legislators are hoping that the bill will attract more couples into the state as well as attract further revenue for towns and municipalities. Legislation has also instated a 30 day annulment period after the ceremony should anyone decide to pull a Britney Spears Vegas wedding…. hopefully this is not a frequent occurrence.

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.
Today Hotels Unlimited is happy to introduce Lauren and Matt who were married on September 17th. Lauren and Matt like some of our Toms River couples held their Jersey Shore wedding ceremony on the nearby beaches and took pictures there. Then when it came time to celebrate the reception, they brought elements of the beach back with them to the Versailles Ballroom inside the Ramada Toms River. This is a great way to bring the beach into your special day without paying through the nose for a venue on the water. This locally inspired wedding features photographs from Georgian Court University, Ocean County Beaches and of course the Versailles Ballroom.
