On Tuesday May 3rd we hosted our Welcome Spring Bridal Expo. The Bridal Expos at Majestic Gardens are a great opportunity to meet recommended vendors, sample menu selections and see the latest wedding design trends. At each Expo, we try to feature different stations and linen combinations so that couples who are having their weddings here have an opportunity to see different displays each time.
In keeping with the season, we had our Mint Lemonade Welcome Station on display. The station features lemonade in bottles with decorative straws and little leaf welcome tags. The tags can be personalized with a special message or can serve as seating cards.

At this expo our featured colors were black, white, silver and ivory and the colors were incorporated in the glass-topped specialty cocktail tables, the table linens, our ceiling draping, Spring colors featured at the Expo included yellow, apple green, willow green, dusty rose and aquamarine.
Ceiling draping is the newest design trend and it certainly makes an impact in the Grand Ballroom. At the Expo our Design and Décor division presented event draping over the dance floor in ivory organza with silver satin band accents. The draping is a great way to incorporate your wedding colors into the décor either by selecting colored draping or by changing the color of the satin bands.
The Expo featured our Gourmet Burger Bar, our Shot Glass Shrimp Station for the shrimp cocktail lovers, our award winning New York, New York Cheesecake Martini Bar and our Sweet Dreams Pastry Buffet. The Gourmet Burger Bar is for the couple who keeps up with all the latest food trends. The burger has made a big resurgence ever since celebrity Chef Daniel Boulud created his famous $29 foie gras and short rib stuffed burger. Many celebrity chefs have followed Chef Boulud’s lead and now there are top-ten lists for the best gourmet burgers. Our Gourmet Burger Bar includes a choice of three different gourmet burgers coupled with onion rings and mini black and white milk shakes. Our featured dessert presentation is our most popular dessert station: the award-winning New York Chocolate Martini Sundae Bar which features cheesecake presented in a martini glass with your choice of toppings including fresh fruit, warm strawberries, Oreo and M&Ms.
For the couple looking to do something different for favors, consider the Sweet Dreams Pastry Buffet which is displayed in the lobby as a goodnight treat for guests. As guests depart, our attendant fills a pastry favor box for each couple with a variety of mini pastries and cookies.
