I bought my centerpieces from here. Artificial pumpkins and nobody could tell the difference on my wedding day.
They have an awesome selection AND they are reasonably priced.

We really wanted this venue but not only was it a little out of the way for our guests the cost was a little too out of our price range. Beautiful place and I hear the food is really good.
Cristos, Arthur and Don are AMAZING. Not only were they super nice to us we got so much for so little the cost when we chose The Empire Club. These guys will make your day a special one and will not make you feel less important than another client of theirs. Everyone is equal to them. The food is amazing and they partner up with Palermos Bakery which is even more fantastic because that place rocks.
Go to TEC for your next event and you will not be sorry.

We did not go with The Landmark for our event but this place is really great. I have been to an event here and the food is fantastic and the decor inside is really nice. I think the elevator ride up to the top floors would be nicer if the other side of Rt 17 would finally be completed, it's kind of sad to see dirt piles and construction vehicles in your view.
They were in our price range also- $75 pp for an off season wedding- but we just found something more us.
My consultant at this location rocked the only complaint I have is not even their fault. The store closed down due to flooding and I had to be directed to Paramus in order to alter my dress. Paramus was too full with their own brides plus Wayne brides so they directed me to Springfield. Springfield does not do weekend alterations and the late night alterations were not late enough for me. My only other option was East Brunswick but that is super far from me.
Eventually I found Hollywood Bride who did my alterations for a lot cheaper than DB would have done them. So it all worked out in the end, and hopefully the store is up and running once again because Wayne is one of the best locations with the best staff!
We wanted to use Brothers for the grooms cake but they were kind of unprofessional and made us make an appointment for a cake tasting and told us to be at the store at exactly 7pm. We get there and they handed us a small cake in a box to take home...that was our tasting. They didn't give us any other options, I had told them over the phone that I was interested in cannoli filling but like to try your other fillings, all they gave us was cannoli. And honestly, their cannoil filling isn't that good at all.
I went with the bakery that was doing our wedding cake instead of Brothers for the grooms cake and it came out amazing.

This bakery is fantastic! My husband and I went in for a tasting and everything was so delicious that it was hard to choose a flavor. There is one flavor they do not give you in the tasting and that is Italian Rum Cake, you need to ask for it. That is the actual flavor we went with and it did not disappoint on our wedding day!
I love their cake and fillings so much that I decided to get my husband's grooms cake from here as well. I worked with Paul and gave me a photo and all he told me was "I'll take care of it" the cake which I never saw until they brought it out during the rehearsal dinner was more than I ever expected.
This bakery has now become MY bakery, it's the only place I will go to get my sweets and other goodies. I even brought in a friend of mine who lives in New York and she wanted to try a few cookies that she saw. Now my friend has been to the best places in the city and she told me that Palermo's was the best dessert from a bakery that she ever had. Go here and you will not be disappointed!
After my wedding I received my top layer cake from my venue- the venue gave me the wrong top layer, so we went back and they ordered a new cake from Palermo. When I picked up the new cake and brought it home my husband and I realized it was yet again the wrong cake. I called up Palermo's and spoke to Joanne. She was so professional and kind. She told me that the venue actually gave them the wrong order. So Joanne took care of me and I get to pick up my new cake at no extra cost just in time for the holidays.
Thank you so much Palermo's!
I did not get my dress here BUT I did get my veil here and I did my alterations at Holly wood Bridal.
These women are amazing. I went in for just alterations and I kept looking at the veils, one of the consultants saw me checking out the veils and asked if I wanted to try one on. I was totally against wearing one but I found a veil I fell in love with and it totally matched my dress!
I had to go back 2 more times and I did not try on my dress when it was finished, I just brought it home and hoped for the best. When I put it on on my wedding day it looked SO much better than it did at the bridal salon where I first bought it at.
I love all the women working there, they aren't strung up on commissions they work for giving clients awesome customer service.
I went to this florist before finding a different florist. I thought Santos was the best in Newark but I was surprised at how they worked with their potential customers.
First they didn't want to deal with me because my wedding was over a year a way.
Then when I told them I knew what I wanted they told me that after I had my consultation I would have to sign a contract to seal the price of the flowers quoted or else the price would change, within 2 weeks. I felt really pressured and I didn't feel comfortable.
One second they didn't want my business then the next second they are pressuring me to sign a contract. Even though we had a bad experience doesn't mean you will, just be aware of everything and go in there with an open mind.
Love Love Love LOVE Gina and her shop. I did change my flowers twice, not too extreme but she didn't seem to mind it at all. I never saw a full sample (due to season) of my centerpieces and she promised me it would come out beautiful. I also never saw my bouquet AND two days before my wedding my original flowers died in the crazy snowstorm we had in October. She told me about that over the phone and I didn't flip out, she suggested other flowers and I am so happy with what she picked for me.
Everything came out perfectly and much better than what I expected in my head. Gina is sweet and fantastic and I would use her again for future events.
