Wedding Ideas

Destination: South Jersey

Posted on May 23, 2019 by New Jersey Bride


In addition to the unique and beautiful wedding venues that South Jersey provides, many are just minutes away from the beach, picturesque wineries, historic Victorian Cape May, glitzy Atlantic City or the serene Delaware River. This area (we’re focusing on locations south of Philadelphia and LBI) offers so many activities and opportunities for your wedding that you’ll be able to turn your event into a weekend-long getaway. Perhaps the best part is that the farther south you get from New York City, the lower the wedding costs, making most of these venues easy on your budget. Your options are endless in South Jersey and will allow you to create a wedding that is unique to you. Here are some of our favorite wedding venues in South Jersey:
