Don’t do everything yourself!

Let the professionals create a day of wonder just for you.

Find a place that provides all the basics and partners with reliable, consistent vendors who really care about the success of your day. Consider your main priorities and how you want to spend your time on the days leading up to and on your one and only wedding day. A wedding is like a performance, and many things need to be very well coordinated in a short period of time.

“The people behind the scenes of any production are its beating heart – your wedding couples of pasts, present and future should know how fortunate they are to work with such an amazing team [at Woolverton Inn].” – J&T, Fall 2021

Your wedding coordinator is your best advisor

Doing everything possible to help make good decisions and enjoy your day.

When you find the right person, they are an invaluable resource who will guide you and filter away the noise so you can focus on your main priorities – to celebrate your happy occasion with those you love.

Assimilate and embrace your venue

A beautiful natural setting needs nothing else.

Outdoor weddings can be elegant affairs, but you can overdo it causing extra stress. Our advice is to let nature do her best work. Avoid over-decorating and advise your guests to dress for the environment. Tuxedos and spiky heels?

“The Woolverton Inn is such a beautiful place to host a wedding. You don’t even need to do any decorating if you didn’t want!” – J&R, Fall 2019

Test your resolve for weather changes

They say rain at your wedding brings good luck!

We all want that glorious sunny day but sometimes Mother Nature has another plan. Or the forecast changes! Review your weather plans so your outdoor wedding in New Jersey continues smoothly rain or shine.

“Although our wedding day had many (weather) surprises our guests and family had such a great time. You all played a big role in making our day a success.” – A&J, summer 2021

Extend your stay & enjoy the outdoors even more

Bring your family and friends together for true quality time.

So much to do in so little time. Staying on the property before and after the event with close friends and family is a privilege and will be your best memories.

“I highly recommend it to anyone looking for this type of venue. We were looking specifically for somewhere we could have our friends and family stay with us the whole weekend and maximize the time spent together around the wedding. If you are looking for an outdoor wedding in NJ where you can rent for the whole weekend and keep everything in one location – I highly recommend the Woolverton! We’ll be back next year for our anniversary :)” – P&M, Fall 2019
