Weddings often bring together families and friends from far away. With so many out-of-towners on the scene, it’s no longer just a wedding – it’s a weekend-long extravaganza! The Ocean Plaza Hotel in Ocean Grove, NJ, provides one beautiful location for all of your overnight guests. This affords everyone the opportunity to spend time together in between events without the hassle and expense of being shuttled to and from different locations. Here’s how you can plan the ultimate beach house wedding weekend with us!

Just one block from the beach, The Ocean Plaza Hotel is the perfect setting for your wedding guests. The Plaza offers 16 guest rooms, three beautiful suites, first-class service, and modern amenities. Plus, our balconies and wrap-around porches boast magnificent views of the ocean and Ocean Grove’s famous Victorian architecture. You can block as many rooms as you’d like, or rent the entire inn and make it your own private beach house for the weekend. Our rates change seasonally and we offer a 10% discount to wedding parties.

The Ocean Plaza’s wrap-around porch seats up to 40 people and is enclosed and heated by a gas fireplace during the cooler months. If you book the entire hotel, you can use the porch for your welcome party, rehearsal dinner, cocktail party, or day-after brunch.

Please note that we do not do room blocks or give group discounts during our high season,
which is June 15 – Sept. 15.

Reception Sites

We are not a reception site. However, we can organize and accommodate other aspects of your beach wedding, such as overnight accommodations, bridal spa packages, and a list of local attractions for your guests. There are many things for your guests to do in their downtime, and most are within walking distance of our inn! If your guests are staying with us, we will provide them with a list of restaurants and things to do as well as a map of the area.
