    Welcome to the forum Pazzesca! I know exactly where Imperia is. I agree that everything happens for a reason - and having just had my DW - it is definitely the way to go! I am not sorry at all that I did it.

        Wow - just found this thread - we're in Jersey City - moved there last year from Staten Island. We decided to do a DW because well, we actually talked about DWs on our second date(!!!) and he has too many family and friends! My side is pretty small, but we couldn't get away with a local wedding of fewer than 200-250 and I always wanted a small wedding.

        We're staying home this weekend. Everyone we know will be away so it should be some good alone time :)

          hello mare and welcome!!

          i work in downtown jersey city! my fiance has a lot of family and i just have my siblings so it works out good for us. not to mention having an at home wedding was just getting to be too big of an expense for us to handle so we canceled ours.

          there is going to be an NJ DW bride meet up next month. there is a thread about it in the meet up section. i can't make it but you might want to go.

            Hi all - I don't think I've ever posted here either. I'm in Union City and looking forward to a DW next March. I could use a vacation right now though. :) Hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far!

              Long branch to Oak Ridge? Those are 2 big extremes!
              We're going to BBQs Saturday and Sunday and then having people over on Monday.
              I'm so happy to be having a 3 day weekend!

                Thanks, Pazzesca! You probably work within walkng distance of my apt! (I wish I did!) I noticed the meetup - I would love to go to one - but Saturday mornings are no good for me b/c I meet up with a running group... although, I am slacking this morning, but it's the holiday weekend :)

                Welcome, Tiffany!

                  Hi! I'm in Bayonne and work in Jersey City. We decided on a DW because our guest list for a wedding at home was topping 300 people, and I wanted something small. We chose to do a cruise wedding so we could still have people there who couldn't afford to travel, but we also had a non-sailing guest limit that wasn't set by us so people understanding about why they weren't invited. We're getting married on the ship before it sails and will then cruise to 3 islands with 21 of our family and friends.

                  I saw the meet up, but I don't drive and I'll be doing a walk for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America in NYC that day (my dad has had ulcerative colitis for 27 years).

                      Hey Ladies!

                      I am from North Bergen, NJ... we decided to go with a DW since it is super expensive in NJ as I have friends getting married this year ($$$). so we are all set up for the Paradisus Palma Real for May 22, 2011!

                      I look forward to talking to you all more!

                      Where did you girls get your dresses from? I have an appointment with The Bridal Manor in South Jersey this weekend and Klienfeld in July... any other suggestions?!
