New Magazine ~ Weddings By The Ritz-Carlton…
…Puttin’ On Da Ritz!
When my husband and I got married 6 years ago, we were blessed and lucky to receive our honeymoon at The Ritz-Carlton Chicago as a gift. Walking into the hotel, fully dressed in my wedding gown and the hubby in his tux, it was an amazing experience we’ll never forget! We were treated like royalty – our entire stay! Literally.
Every person working at The Ritz treated us like gold, even remembering our names and greeting us the entire stay. Seriously – how did they remember our names like that? Every single person in that hotel from the concierge, the front desk, the bell guy, the elevator guy, wait staff – greeted us with, “Hello, Mr. & Mrs. H.!”. We weren’t wearing name tags. They just knew who we were somehow. I still don’t understand how.
Our stay there was magical. Breathtakingly beautiful and so much more. If you’d like to read more about our stay, click HERE. Even if you don’t go there for your wedding or honeymoon, if you just stay there for one night, at least once in your life – the experience is worth it. I can’t explain it…it just is. You’ll understand if you go!
I love The Ritz-Carlton hotel chain for so many fabulous reasons, but this next reason tops the cake! Did you know that they have also started A Vow to Help Others program? “When you book your wedding to be held prior to December 31, 2010, The Ritz-Carlton will donate five percent of the food revenue to The Ritz-Carlton Community Footprints Fund and the charity of your choice.” – The Ritz-Carlton
Now that’s fab.
As if their hotel ambiance, impeccable service and giving back to the community wasn’t enough, The Ritz Carlton has now decided to also come out with a wedding magazine to help couples plan for their wedding. Yes, it’s true…
