It seems only customary to travel to Las Vegas for your bachelor and bachelorette parties before you say the big “I Do”. But have you ever considered taking a trip to the Big Apple? Located in the heart of Manhattan, the historic Carlton hotel provides lavish experiences for any wedding event from bridal showers to bachelor parties or even your destination wedding.
The Carlton’s Speakeasy Suite creates a one-of-a-kind experience for the groom and all his best buds. An evening inside the Prohibition-era man cave will definitely be the perfect way to spend your last night as a bachelor. Through a secret door, you will find yourself in a hidden backroom where the scotch flows and poker tables are open all night. Starting at $1,599, you can party like Gatsby and even take home a bottle of spirits and a shot glass to remember the momentous occasion.
When it comes time for the bridal shower, The Carlton offers a package starting at $1,599. The Broadway Diva Suite, an extravagant suite decorated in the most lavish furniture, can be transformed into a bride’s ultimate girl’s retreat. For up to ten women, the Bridal Shower package includes a formal tea with food and sparkling wine, a gift from Tiffany’s for the bride, and a nail party. You will leave feeling like the ultimate diva.
For couple’s interested in hosting a joint Jack and Jill Wedding Shower, The Carlton has everything covered. This increasingly popular trend has inspired the ultimate soiree in two adjoining penthouse suites. Men will have a blast in the Corner Pocket Suite where they can shoot pool on a vintage billiards table while the bride and her gals relax in the New Yorker Suite underneath a dazzling crystal chandelier. This package, starting at $5,999 includes one hour with an in-room mixologist in the Corner Pocket Suite, two hours of makeup and nail styling in the New Yorker Suite, and an open bar with hors d’oeuvres where the suites adjoin for up to 30 people.
When the big day arrives, The Carlton is also the perfect venue for a destination wedding. With hair and makeup for the bride and up to two bridesmaids, starting at $1,299 the Broadway Diva Suite is transformed into the Bridal Suite. Enjoy light refreshments for up to six people as you get ready to walk down the aisle.
