#HipNJWeddings: Bridal Shower Trends at Cielo

#HipNJWeddings: Bridal Shower Trends at Cielo

TREND ALERT!

Your grandmother’s Sunday brunch bridal shower are a thing of the past.  #HipNJ brides are now incorporating tradition with a fun night out with the women they love!

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino recently celebrated her bridal shower at Fairfield hotspot Cielo.  While the modern Italian fare (rock shrimp arrabiatta, orecchetta w/sausage & cauliflour, and chicken scarpiello) satisfied all generations, the Friday night soiree’s standouts were the custom cocktails (“The Lisatini!”), music and dancing.

Lisa Marie enjoyed her night so much, she had to sit down with Cielo owner Chef Anthony Pucciarello for #HipNJWeddings.  Lisa Marie discovered that #HipNJ brides are flocking to Chef Anthony’s old school-meets-new world experience; bridal showers make up 80% of their private parties!

Cielo’s other standouts include the beautiful bar area, which boasts ornate ceilings and granite countertops.  Chef Anthony’s signature “Inside-Out Meatball” is a must-have (yes, it’s a meatball filled with spaghetti, tomato and basil!)  And no #HipNJ‘er can resist the “Dirty Jersey” martini!

To book a bridal shower, or to make a reservation for dinner, call 973.808.1414 or visit their website.
