The Jewish Journal requested an interview with our wedding specialist Adrianna Avery. They wrote up a nice piece about the general cost of a wedding and destination weddings in Salem, Massachusetts. Below is an excerpt of the article.
"With the average cost of saying "I Do" in the presence of family and friends exceeding $27,000 according to The Knot 2011, coupled with the economic down cycle, it is no surprise that newly engaged couples are seeking ways to save on their wedding costs.
Believe it or not, destination weddings can actually cut costs without compromising the wedding experience! "Wedding Solutions has reported that close to 15% of engaged couples are electing to travel to their wedding destinations, and one motivating factor could be the savings — the average cost for 100 guests is $17,000," said Adrianna Avery, Salem Waterfront Hotel & Marina’s wedding planner."
Tabitha and Jeremy hosted their Wedding Reception here with us last night. The couple held their ceremony in Brazil earlier in the summer. Because most of their American guests were not able to attend, they decided to host a separate reception for all of their local friends and family. The couple chose a mango and ivory colored wedding with beautiful rose centerpieces from Jack Jones Design. Cakes for Occasions supplied their custom designed three-tiered wedding cake.

The Salem Waterfront Hotel was by far the best venue that my husband and I looked at for our wedding. The decor, location and staff were exactly what we were looking for. Adrianna was an amazing coordinator. She went above and beyond for our wedding. The hotel worked with us to make sure that we had everything we could want for our wedding. The food was incredible. We are still getting compliments now, 8 months after our wedding, on how great the food was. With every wedding there are some small issues that arise, but the hotel staff handled everything professionally and made sure that my husband and I were not stressed out about anything. We truly cannot thank the staff at the Salem Waterfront Hotel enough for making our day special. I would whole heartedly recommend this vendor to anyone for ANY event. Thank you Salem Waterfront Hotel!!
