Planning for the Big Day

How to Dress for the Wedding

The wedding will be Semi-Formal.

  • Gentleman, please come dressed in suits.
  • Ladies, please come dressed in cocktail dresses.
    • Long or short, your preference. But please be dressed to dance!
  • Children should be in their Sunday Best.

Getting to the Wedding


  • The nearest airport to the Hotel and Venue is the Bradley International Airport. It is About an hour’s drive from the wedding festivities.
  • However, it is usually cheaper to fly into Laguardia, Kennedy, or Newark Airports. These airports are about a two hour’s drive from the wedding festivities.
  • Keep in mind that if you choose to fly into Laguardia or Kennedy, you will either have to cross through Manhattan to reach NJ, and up to CT.
  • If you need help planning your travel route, please contact us! We’ll be happy to help you find your way to us.
