The Statue of Liberty Barbie Is Invited to Ellis Island Weddings!

The Statue of Liberty is a guest of honor at every Liberty Island Wedding, and admires your big day from a close distance when you’re among our circle of Ellis Island wedding couples.

She’s a grand and breathtaking figure at Ellis Island weddings, and many of our wedding couples love to honor her in creative ways, such as choosing a Statue of Liberty-themed wedding invitation or displaying a Statue of Liberty figure on their wedding dessert bar or family photos table, welcoming your wedding guests to our landmark wedding venue.

Since a big wedding trend is incorporating fun and playful design elements with a callback to your childhood, we thought we’d inspire you with the Statue of Liberty Barbie Doll (Dolls of the World Landmark Collection)

Created as part of the 30th anniversary of Barbie’s Dolls of the World®, the Landmark Collection brings world-famous landmarks to life through Barbie® fashion. Since the Statue of Liberty is one of the most-visited landmarks in the world, Mattel honored her with a Barbie doll all her own! And we must say, her dress is quite lovely, as is her 4th of July printed clutch and her Statue of Liberty-inspired crown!

At 13.3 inches high, your Statue of Liberty Barbie dolls can take a place at the centers of each of your guest tables in our Registry Room, surrounded by flowers and candles or illuminated by special lighting, or you might surround her with sweets on your wedding’s lavish desserts table. As mentioned, she can join your family photos table, look over your guest book, or –another big wedding trend! – you might surprise your little girl wedding guests and flowergirls with Statue of Liberty Barbies awaiting them at their table, in gift bags personalized to them.

As glamorous and elegant as weddings are at Ellis Island, with pure luxury surrounding you in our grand historic venue transformed by your designs into a glam wedding wonderland, there’s always room for a touch of whimsy and for another fabulously-dressed wedding guest!

Top Wedding Trend 2014: Copper

Among the top wedding trends for 2014 is the use of copper in tabletop design. Here, in Zak Events’ fabulous image, you’ll see how the copper captures the mood-setting lighting, creating a warmer glow than is seen with silver. The slight hint of auburn also warms the room, and comes quite close to colors in candlelight.

So for your luxury wedding in our landmark venue, consider copper as your metallic base, and build from there (quite upwardly, given our high ceilings) with your choice of florals and elegant greenery, crystals, and other lush details of your wedding vision.
