Minneapolis | January 28, 2014

The Park Plaza Hotel Bloomington today announced it has been named a 2014 pick for “The Knot Best of Weddings: Minnesota”, in the venue category and has won the WeddingWire.com Couple’s Choice Award for 2014.

“Over the last couple years we have been focusing on developing our competitive edge in the local wedding market.  Couples have an overwhelming number of wedding venues to choose from in Bloomington,” said Lindsay Robin, catering manager and event designer at the hotel. “We are glad to see that our creative and innovative approach to wedding design has paid off and we look at these awards as great accomplishments.”

The Park Plaza Hotel is one of few properties to offer couples a custom décor package including fabric draped walls around the entire perimeter of the room with a custom lighting design.

“Every couple wants their wedding to resemble their own personal style. My focus is on helping couples make their vision a reality and providing personalized service throughout their entire experience and incorporating the latest trends”, Robin added.

"Glamour is back! Art Deco and 1920s-era decor, inspired by The Great Gatsby and Downton Abbey, will be in hot in 2014. Custom up lighting gives these elegant and chic weddings a true Old Hollywood feel. Metallic color schemes will also be huge in 2014, so expect to see luxe drapery in gold’s and silvers to really amp up the glam factor!" said Kim Forrest,  Wedding Wire Editor.
