When you marry at Westminster Hotel here in Livingston, NJ, you have a wonderful advantage in planning sensational special events for your guests to enjoy during your wedding weekend, most of them right here on-site at the AAA Four Diamond Westminster Hotel. And for those who wish to venture off of our grounds, there is an array of terrific shopping, and a nearby movie theater and interactive kids’ fun center in nearby East Hanover, not to mention the sights, sounds and excitement of Broadway plays in New York City and upscale shopping in Short Hills.
Cocktail Parties and Dining
Our wedding coordinator Inez will be happy to help plan the first experience your wedding guests will enjoy: a welcome cocktail party that can be held in the world-famous Strip House or in our ballroom. Start their visit off right with our chef’s most delectable dishes and choice from our fine wine collection, as well as your first set of signature cocktails created by our mixologists in Strip House, a glam setting to make the best first impression during your wedding weekend. Strip House creates an atmosphere of celebration and NJ-themed appeal with its retro crimson décor accented by black-and-white Studio Manasse photography from early-1900s Vienna, as well as framed photos of celebrities hailing from New Jersey.
Your guests will surely want to experience Strip House menu items several times, so consider an added lunch or dinner with us during your guests’ stay.
Swimming, Fitness and Spa
Guests can enjoy unstructured downtime at our indoor heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi, or take in a workout in our fitness center. A party room next to the pool can be reserved for your planned indoor pool party to please guests of all ages, no matter the season of your wedding.
Plan a cocktail party al fresco on our stone terrace, a 1,400-square-foot outdoor space with a Zen flowering garden, fountains, a pergola, event living and a Bose sound system, suiting 75 guests. Our lawn can also be staged with elegant tents or canopies and tables with seating for your larger wedding weekend events.
As mentioned, Westminster Hotel weddings take place in an exciting New Jersey region filled with dining, shopping, mini golf, movie theaters and other sites that your wedding guests can visit just a short drive away. Just next door, we have a variety of shops like World Market and Nordstrom Rack for guests to enjoy. We’re also closely located to many houses of worship, for guests who wish to keep their church or synagogue schedules.
Be sure to create a wedding weekend plan that offers several organized events like cocktail parties and breakfasts, and on your personal wedding website list suggestions for area attractions and all of our on-site amenities like our spa, pool and Strip House, so that your wedding guests know to pack their bathing suits and coverups, their little black dress or suit jacket if desired for a formal dinner, their workout gear, and more.
