Bouquet: The 411: Venues
Weddings at Please Touch
The Please Touch Museum, recently relocated to Fairmount Park’s stately Memorial Hall, now caters to the over-six set, hosting weddings for up to 450 seated guests. Part classic elegance (marble floors, soaring ceilings), part whimsy (a 40-foot replica of the Statue of Liberty torch made out of toys, cool exhibits on display), the venue offers cuisine from exclusive caterer Max & Me Catering, as well as on-site planners to guide you through the process. Museum rental fees start at $2,500; per-person prices start at $120. 215-963-0667, pleasetouchmuseum.org. — A.T.
Jersey’s Latest Venue
Jersey girls, stress no more: The new Westin Mount Laurel gives South Jersey serious swank appeal, so you can get city-chic wedding style without crossing the river. Choose between their two glam ballrooms, which can accommodate up to 550, and then relax: The full-service hotel takes care of everything. An in-house catering director helps you sketch out Big Day details, and executive chef Jean Francois Lassance creates delectable fare (like Thai grilled yellowfin tuna over soba noodles). Prices average $100 per person. 555 Fellowship Road, Mt. Laurel, 856-778-7300, westinmtlaurel.com. — L.S.
