NJ Summer Wedding Venue

June brides: plan you day with the ideal NJ summer wedding venue.

Choosing a wedding date is one of the most important planning decisions that you'll have to make as a couple — it will impact every other aspect of your big day. You may have an idea of where you envision yourself walking down the aisle or what you want your cake to look like, but until you decide when you'd like to get married, you can't commit to anything.

The warmer months in New Jersey are often the most sought out when planning for a couple’s special day and for good reason – the weather can be beautiful!  

At The Wilshire Grand Hotel, NJ we know weddings and can help you plan the summer event of your dreams.  Our peaceful outdoor gardens are the perfect backdrop for ceremonies and receptions.

Summer wedding but indoor celebration?  From grand ballrooms to intimate settings, our event venues in NJ sparkle with elegance. Our Regency Room and Grand Ballroom offer a sophisticated setting. Whereas, our Tuscany Room and The Loft at 350 offer a unique layout that makes you forget you are in the suburbs.

We invite you to come and see what The Wilshire Grand has to offer as a NJ summer wedding venue. Recipient of the Wedding Wire Couples Choice Award 2014 and 2015 and Manhattan Bride’s Best of 2015! For more information, visit our website.
