MilestoneBirthdayPartyTrendsFor a 30th, 40th, 50th or other milestone birthday, friends and family will often plan a birthday party, perhaps a surprise birthday party for the guest of honor. A milestone birthday party may include just a handful of close family and friends, or it may be a larger-scale celebration with 100+ guests invited. Some families prefer a smaller gathering, and some see this milestone birthday as a great opportunity to gather their loved ones from near and far, which might not happen very often in our busy world.

Another trend is planning a series of parties, perhaps starting with a family-only brunch at a top NJ restaurant brunch, and then hosting a larger dinner in a spectacular NJ ballroom. Some families plan weekend birthday celebrations with multiple events planned.

Renewing your wedding vows is a milestone moment in your relationship, and cause for a wonderful celebration that gathers your family and friends for a happy occasion. It’s a time to celebrate your years of marriage – no matter how many years it’s been – and many couples who have renewed their wedding vows say that this meaningful celebration not only reaffirms their commitment to one another, it also serves as a wonderful example to the younger generations of what goes into a healthy and happy marriage.

Couples who renew their wedding vows very often plan their ceremony and reception to be very much like a wedding, with a ceremony held in their venue’s gardens and their reception held in their venue’s ballroom. From wedding gown to wedding flowers to wedding cake, this vow renewal may even be a bigger, more elaborate, more indulgent event than the couple’s original wedding. Some couples certainly see this as an opportunity for a wedding do-over, the chance to have the wedding of their dreams in one of the best wedding venues in NJ. They want to celebrate in grand style, treating their guests to a spectacular celebration.
