Getting married at Rock Island Lake Club and overwhelmed by all of the amazing food options and cool upgrades in the wedding package? To help, we asked past RILC couples to share their top food and upgrade recommendations for future couples. Here's what they said...
Midnight Diner Stop
"In lieu of favors, we added on the Midnight Diner Stop and that was best! Guests cannot stop talking about the amazing food even two weeks after the wedding." - RILC Couple
The McDonalds Munchies station is the perfect way to end a night of drinking and dancing. Before you and your guests head home (or to the after party), grab some cheeseburgers, hamburgers, McNuggets, and French fries straight from the drive thru! Prefer Wendy's or Burger King? We can accommodate that for you :)
Bonus: when you book the McDonalds Munchies package, Rock Island Lake Club will donate a to the Ronald McDonald House.
Milk and cookies
This dessert upgrade is for all those with a sweet tooth! The Milk and Cookies bar includes edible cookie dough, freshly baked cookies, deep fried chocolate chip cookies, and milk shooters. Enough said 😋
Magic Mirror Selfie Booth
Don't worry about hiring an outside vendor for your photo booth; we have two options that we set up and operate for you, the Gifferang and the Magic Mirror Selfie Booth. Grab some props, strike a pose, and enjoy the photo strips of memories for years to come!
"We used their photo booth which was a blast for everyone involved, especially the kids. Their props were great and they put together an album for us with messages from our guests. It was great to see how much fun everyone had." - RILC Couple
Change the entire mood in the ballroom with up-lighting! Choose from 24+ colors of built-in lighting features in our ballroom dance floor, tray ceiling, columns & bar.
Bonus: when you book a late-night station, you get up-lighting for free!
Brick Oven Pizza
Wood fired pizza straight from our brick oven, made-to-order or hot-and-ready!
"Over one month later, our guests are still talking about the phenomenal food and service; everyone was absolutely wowed by the pizza to go station at the end of the night!" - RILC Couple
Early Arrival Packages
The top recommended upgrade on the Rock Island Lake Club NJ wedding package were the early arrival packages, The Balcony Suite and The Lakeside Lounge. These two private suites allow couples and their wedding parties to get ready on-site without any worries. Included in the package is fresh lunch (and breakfast for the Balcony Suite), drinks, a personal attendant, and use of the pedal boat to explore the lake.
" My girls and I got ready at Rock Island and the groom and his friends had the lounge package, we were all fed and taken care of all day. My bridal suite attendant was a dream, she steamed dresses and the guy’s shirts, took care of me all day, carried my change of shoes, bustled my dress, slipped my veil in and out."- RILC Couple
Bring Hawaii to New Jersey with the Hawaiian Luau featuring a hole hog, plantains, grilled pineapple, coconut curry rice, jerk chicken wings, paired with rum punch 🌺
Carved brown sugar pork belly sliders (not GF) bacon wrapped scallops, dates, & jalapeño poppers, chocolate dipped bacon, and bacon buffalo chicken dip paired with bacon bourbon shots 🥓
"Do yourself a favor and get the Bacon Station during cocktail hour - you won’t regret it." - RILC Couple
