Now that I'm planning a wedding, it seems my entire schedule revolves around bridal shows, but coming up is one that I'm REALLY excited for!


Join me as I help host the Red Bank Wedding Walk, Sunday, March 22nd in downtown Red Bank. Organized by Red Bank RiverCenter, it'll be an amazing day showcasing all of the awesome local businesses that can help make any wedding perfect.

Unlike other bridal shows, the Red Bank Wedding Walk is done at your own pace.

Where to start

You'll start the day by checking in between 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Oyster Point Hotel (146 Bodman Place) where you'll enjoy a continental breakfast, and get the Wedding Walk passport of participating businesses, (organized by color zones -- I'll explain in a minute.) You'll then be able to walk (or take the complimentary limo or trolley) to visit the places you want to see downtown!

From dresses and tuxedos, to hair and makeup, photographers, florists, DJs, and even venues for the rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, or the big day itself...there's SO many vendors to see in Red Bank!

The best part? The PRIZES!

That's where those color zones on the Wedding Walk Passport map will come in handy -- you need to visit at least TWO businesses in each zone, and have them initial your passport, in order to be entered to win the prizes.

Every registered bride and groom will be entered to win one of the Grand Prizes, including a three night, all-inclusive getaway to the Majestic Colonial Resort in Punta Cana courtesy of Liberty Travel in Eatontown!

Other prizes up for grabs include a bridal gown from Sassy Chic Boutique, spa package from the Spa at the Galleria, full DJ/entertainment package from Sounds to Go, a ladies white gold diamond wedding band from A.H. Fisher Diamonds, and special getaway packages from The Oyster Point Hotel and Molly Pitcher Inn. Plus, plenty of door prizes for the attendants, too!

The Wedding Walk is free to attend, but you are encouraged to pre-register-- if you do, you'll be entered to win a $100 Red Bank gift card!

The Reception

At 4 p.m., we'll all head back to the Molly Pitcher Inn to enjoy champagne, passed hors d'oeuvres, and music on their patio overlooking the Navesink River -- and of course get to the prize giveaways! You must be present, and arrive with your initialed passport by 4:15, to win the prizes.

It's a rain or shine event, and I can't wait to meet all the fellow brides-to-be!
