If you want to say “I do” at The Beverly Hilton, the Four-Star hotel offers a comprehensive wedding package. Your guests will be treated to a boozy six-hour open bar with hors d’oeuvres, a three-course sit-down dinner, a champagne toast, two bottles of house wine per table, a custom-made wedding cake and discounted parking. You and your betrothed get to choose among dishes such as lobster bisque; The Beverly Hilton salad with goat cheese, walnuts and citrus on top of Bibb and radicchio with papaya-mango relish and champagne dressing; petite filet mignon and sea bass with soy-ginger sauce; and the dulce de leche ice cream truffle — gelato with a caramel center dipped in dark chocolate. For the wedding cake, you can pick flavors such as white or chocolate sponge, lemon, marble pound, or spice cake. Then you can fill it with lemon, raspberry, strawberry or mocha buttercream and frost it with French buttercream or fondant. If the food choices don’t mesh with your vision of your big day, the hotel can do customized menus upon request and employ outside caterers. Plus, the Beverly Hills hotel has a full kosher kitchen overseen by the Rabbinical Council of California.
Most nuptials take place in one of the ballrooms. For the most glitz, go for the International ballroom, which hosts the Golden Globes. The International Ballroom is the biggest of the bunch, seating up to 1,100. However, the hotel offers a number of event room options, including the Beverly Hills ballroom, which seats 588, and the Wilshire ballroom, which holds 336.
