Brides can be very particular about the details of their weddings and locations. All the more reason the three North Carolina Aquariums were delighted when brides voted them the “Best of Weddings” for 2011. The designation appears in The Knot, a local and national publication deemed the No. 1 wedding resource most trusted and used by brides.
“The Aquariums are proud and excited they have been given this wonderful designations,” said Michele Bunce, special events coordinator at the Aquarium on Roanoke Island. “We all try to make quest experiences one they won’t forget, especially the most special day in a person’s life-their wedding day. Sunset ceremonies, cocktails in our beautiful galleries, dinner and dancing under the sea-the possibilities are endless.
The Knot reaches more than a million engaged couples each year, and also produces books and TV programs. Its designation, “Best of Weddings,” provides a by-brides-for-brides guide to top wedding professionals across the country and is considered a must-have reference when it comes to selecting the best-of-the-best.
The state’s three public Aquariums provide colorful palettes for any special occasions-from weddings and reunions to conferences and retreats. Their unique venues are eco-friendly, and revenue generated by facility rentals is “recycled” to support the Aquariums mission, programs and future development. ” You can say we’re sustainably chic!” quipped Bunce.
Consider one of the three Aquariums as a site for your next special event. For information, visit www.ncaquariums.com and click on your favorite Aquarium. Select the “Rent the Aquarium” listing for additional information and contact.
