The annual Red Bank Wedding Walk returns Sunday, offering prospective brides-and-grooms, brides-and-brides and grooms-and-grooms an opportunity to trawl the town’s business district for all it has to offer in the way of wedding-related services.

Which is a lot.

Organized by Red Bank RiverCenter, the downtown promotion agency, Wedding Walk takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. The free event is designed to enable couples to plan their weddings while enjoying the sights and tastes of the town.

More than 40 wedding-related businesses participate, including florists, gown and accessories retailers, bridesmaid and guest attire boutiques, photographers, wedding planners, jewelers, bakeries, salons and banquet facilities.  Most offer light refreshments and special amenities to participants.

New to the walk this year are some recent additions to the downtown mix: Robinson Ale House and Pinot’s Palette in the wedding and pre-wedding celebration venue category; ThrillHer Diamonds and Goldtinker in the jewelry roster; and the personal services category has added three new salons: L Studio, Wisteria Beauty Lounge and Yanni Erbeli Salon.

The day begins with registration and check in, along with continental breakfast, at the Oyster Point Hotel, and ends at the nearby Molly Pitcher Inn with a Champagne event and prize raffles. In between, the tours are self-guided, but Wedding Walkers can get around town via free shuttle, limo and trolley service.
