There are many details that go into planning a dream wedding. Some seem much more important than others such as venue, time of year, and who to include on the guest list. But when speaking with our Certified Wedding Planners at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown Hotel, one often overlooked detail can actually turn out to be the most personal: floral arrangements.

It may seem laughable that those in charge of planning many local Syracuse events including all of the weddings at the Marriott Syracuse would put such an emphasis on flowers. Yet this is an easy way for the bride (and groom) to show off their personal taste and creativity. The best way to ensure your vision is being realized is to have an open conversation with your planner. Before this step, consider consulting a “Wedding Flower Guide” to brush up on the basics of all the blooms that, depending on what’s happening in Syracuse (time of year, weather), may be at your disposal.

For Marriott Syracuse Weddings, our planners suggest keeping three basic factors in mind:

Color – Depending on the theme / color scheme, certain flowers will work better in accenting the overall style and décor.

Shape – Another cosmetic factor that is often overlooked, but just imagine if your guests’ dinner experience on your special day is memorable only for the fact that the tall floral centerpiece precluded them from conversing with their table mates.

Quantity – How many blooms will you need to fill out all your floral arrangements? From bouquets and boutonnieres to centerpieces and standard décor, it’s beneficial to know what pieces you’ll need for your event to help narrow down the types of blooms that are required.

High Drama

Having a hotel wedding is NOT the antithesis of over-the-top indulgence! Our team can turn any of our flexible spaces into elaborately decorated displays of your love. Maybe not as magnanimous as the Royal Wedding in England, but we promise your big day will be what’s happening in Syracuse!

Pure Romance

Think candlelit ceremonies and rose petals are the perfect way to ‘happily ever after’? You’re not alone, and as one of the top current wedding trends, our Finger Lakes Ballroom Wedding Package can be customized to fit this style of traditional romance to melt any heart!

Rustic

Even if we don’t offer an outdoor wedding space, we can transform our ballrooms into the ideal naturally-inspired venue that will provide you with the best of both worlds (sorry Mother Nature, you won’t spoil this day)!

Vintage

Something borrowed and blue is not only traditional, it’s the beginning of a ceremony based on bringing the past back to the present to ensure a blissful future!

Whimsical

Whimsy = creativity! Anything your heart desires can come true!

Now, that you have learned about the many different trends we can incorporate into your special day, plan to Tie the Knot at Marriott! All of our weddings at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown Hotel are highly personalized events and we look forward to assisting in creating your own perfect version of ‘happily ever after’!

It’s Syracuse Graduation Time!

What’s Syracuse Graduation Like?

pablo

It’s that time of year again, and Syracuse University is sending off its next batch of the best and brightest with a commencement ceremony that’s sure to touch hearts and minds.

Syracuse University Graduation is not just a moment—it’s an entire weekend. Different schools and colleges within the University host special convocations on the day prior to commencement to celebrate their achievements.

There’s excitement everywhere, as each school hosts events in different areas of campus. Tickets aren’t necessary for either event and there are ample facilities for guests with mobility limitations.

Be warned, though—downtown Syracuse is extremely busy this weekend, so be prepared for delays at local eateries and on roadways. Given the sheer number of visitors during this time, the best way to enjoy a relaxing Syracuse graduation weekend is to stay close to the University.

Stay at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown for a Stress-Free Graduation Experience

Commencement is fun but stressful. Take some of the anxiety out of the weekend by staying at the Marriott right here in Downtown Syracuse, only four minutes from the University.

A historic hotel with award-winning accommodations, our opulent surroundings will have you charmed from the moment you step inside. We’ve got two on-site restaurants to make finding delicious food easy, and of course, there’s room service if you’re feeling weary by the end of the day.

With lodging that provides every amenity you could need, you can simply relax and enjoy the moment.
