What is a Traditional Wedding?
Weddings, traditionally, are very formal and elegant affairs. Typically the event is black tie, everyone is dressed in his or her best, and the location, food and decor are top shelf. Traditionally it would not be a DJ spinning records and providing the music, instead however; the sound of a big band would fill the room along with possibly a string orchestra for subtle background music most typically while your guests are dining.

A venue with high ceilings and lots of marble and granite adds to the grand feel of the venue, some venues around New York to check out are Russo’s on the Bay, The Inn at New Hyde Park, The Venetian in Garfield New Jersey, or of course the legendary Oheka Castle.

For you and your significant other to get into the celebratory mood, a night out should be planned in order to fully admire your impending union evening. Dressing your best, and going out to a renowned establishment for drinks, only ordering cocktails such as martinis, gimlets, and cosmopolitans to fully understand the stem of traditional elegance. This is done in order to observe and celebrate your upcoming marriage as traditionally during the day of imbibing too many cocktails is frowned upon and can potentially ruin the day.
