We had a wonderful wedding in Cape May. Our guests loved the town atmossphere and treated it like a long weekend vacation. It was great with a few small issues. Mainly my makeup and hair person -don't use Claudia Seyler.
My hair fell out before the ceremony was even over and my makeup was gone before most of the pictures were taken at the reception. In hindsite, I should have stuck with Aritzan which is the salon in Cape May and not tried to go with a high end person.
Mike from DJs Available was a great pick. He and I went over the music on the phone the week before and he had a great personality. No chatter during the reception, just good music and kept the party going.
The town is easy to work with to get permits. Each half hour costs $25. Very easy and very private, esp at hte beginning of the season, before school is out.
They had 3 weddings that weekend. They run a tight ship and know how to run a wedding. The guests at the 2 first weddings had to deal with us going in and out to my room with stuff for our wedding, but they seemed not to mind. The front desk staff is excellent and Alan as Maitre'd is excellent. The cake is lacking and sometimes it seemed difficult to get the better hand passed aps.
Cheaper alt to the Alcott for wedding guests to stay. No fuss and no muss - just wish that they took credit cards for reservations.
