The Plaza Hotel Weddings
Is there a more famous New York wedding venue than the iconic Plaza Hotel? It seems hard to beat this opulent urban resort with its outstanding Palm Court and the superlative Grand Ballroom accurately restored to their original splendor. Featured in many classic movies, such as Home Alone, Sleepless in Seattle, and The Great Gatsby, the luxurious Plaza Hotel is located at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Central Park and stands as a symbol of New York itself.
The Plaza has everything a bride and groom could wish for: spectacular ceilings decorated with Renaissance paintings, original Charles Winston crystal chandeliers, a one-of-a-kind bridal suite, cakes from the world’s best wedding-cake artisans, a space that holds up to 500 people for a cocktail reception (the Terrace Room) and 370 for seated dinners, and the fame of being one of the most expensive venues in New York City. Brides and grooms alike can unwind and de-stress before their “I do’s” at the hotel’s elegant Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa, famous for its replenishing facials and relaxing massages. Chosen by Hollywood celebrities, such as Michael Douglas and Eddie Murphy for their own weddings, this venue is the perfect mix between the glamorous past and the audacious present.
A true landmark of one of the world’s most bustling metropolis, the Plaza is sure to please even the most traditional of couples, but is also ready to impress contemporary spirits with that touch of sophisticated modernity (think old world luxury complemented by the latest technology subtly integrated throughout the wedding space).
This is the right setting for brides to wear princess wedding gowns and lavish diamonds (the extravagant Grand Ballroom and Terrace Room will add an extra royal touch to your appearance) and for guests to feel part of a fairy tale for one day. That’s exactly why The Plaza is iconic, mesmerizing and memorable. Oh, yes, there will be white-gloved butlers passing hors d’ oeuvres, too.
If you have been dreaming of a striking wedding (and your wallet is big enough for the grand total), this is the venue that will transform your big day into a memorable one.
