NEW YORK, NY - (November 17, 2009) - For more than four generations, women have dreamed of being a "Pierre bride" and marrying at The Pierre on New York's Central Park. Now, all new 2010 Pierre brides who invest $40,000 or more in their wedding celebrations at the elegant hotel will also receive the ultimate wedding gift: a six-night honeymoon at a choice of luxurious Taj hotels in the U.S. or abroad.

The choice of romantic honeymoon destinations includes The Pierre in New York, fresh from a $100 million redesign; Taj Boston overlooking Boston's Public Garden; Campton Place on San Francisco's Union Square; 51 Buckingham Gate in London; Blue, on the waterfront in Sydney; Taj Exotica Resort & Spa Maldives, or an authentic restored Indian palace, such as the Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur, Rambagh Palace in Jaipur or Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur.

"At the Taj we believe your wedding day should be nothing short of perfection," said Bill Spinner, event and wedding planner at The Pierre. "So whether you wish for the grandest affair or an intimate gathering, we will attend to every little detail. And as the day you've always dreamt of slowly draws to an end, we'll give you the perfect gift: a fabulous honeymoon."

Honeymoon options include a white marble palace floating in the middle of Udaipur that was and is home to royalty; a private over-water palm-thatched villa with plunge pool, sun deck and ladder access into the pristine turquoise lagoon in the Maldives; or an elegant Victorian townhouse on a courtyard complete with butler service steps from London's Buckingham Palace. Other inviting destination options include San Francisco, Sydney, Boston, Dubai, Mumbai, or simply indulge in six additional nights in the lap of luxury in a newly designed residential-style aerie above New York's Central Park at The Pierre, the iconic Taj Hotels flagship in the U.S. The 2010 Unforgettable Wedding Gift offer from The Pierre is available for new wedding bookings in 2010 made after October 15, 2009, and includes hotel accommodations and airport transfers only.
