We’re coming up on wedding season. And if you’re from there, you may be wondering where the best wedding venues in New Jersey are.

All these weddings may have you itching to plan your own. Or maybe you’re headed to a wedding in the Garden State and you want to know if you’ll be at one of the top venues. Whatever it may be, it’s always good to know which venues rock.

People take to the internet to make their opinions known. Online reviews have become an invaluable resource to society. Before, word of mouth was the way to go. That was until your Great-Aunt Shirley told you that the clam chowder at a run-down restaurant was “to die for,” and by the food poisoning you got after, you quickly realized it wasn’t the good kind of “dying.”

Knowing what you’re getting yourself into thanks to easy-to-access online reviews is a modern luxury. People who’ve been to these wedding venues in New Jersey took to their keyboards shortly after and submitted reviews. And it was sure good that they did. Now we have a definitive list (according to reviews) of the best venues.

This list from nj.com lists the top 50 venues in the state. We have the top 13 right here for your viewing pleasure.

Here are the top 13 wedding venues in New Jersey according to reviews:
