    Birch hill is nice. BIG fireplace.

    You could do the Desmond too. The lodge is good for pics and the inside streetscape makes for good pictures. My sister had her wedding there this past January.

    There is a new Hilton Garden Inn on Rt 7 in Troy.
    can accomodate over 400 if needed. It's still a secret, even though it's been open
    for over a year.
    Ample parking, great room accomodations and right off the highway for travelers.
    Good luck!

    11 North Pearl- awesome decor and hotels right across the street if the weather is bad so no one has to drive.  Birch Hill is great but way out there with no hotels around if the weather is bad.

    Crooked Lake House in Averil Park has  beautiful ballroom with 180 degree lake views.  The adjacent rooms for cocktail have amazing big fireplaces.  Would be perfect for a cozy winter wedding.  They're under new management.  Olde Daley Inn is doing all the food and beverage service.

    I have looked into many of those venues- unfortunately many are way over budget! But thanks for all the suggestions! We're trying to go somewhere off the beaten path and a little less "known" because we have found some great prices and some unique venues!

    Ryan KJA we live very close to The Rensellaer and loveeedd it. But way above our heads budget-wise. It is a fantastic venue though

    Check Longfellows in Saratoga off exit 14. They have a winter special price which I think is pretty reasonable based on all the research I've done: $59.99.
    My cousin is getting married there in Jan.

    The venue is very pretty with the tree and lights in the middle of the room. They also have a bridge/pond in there which is just beautiful. There is also a wine cellar room where you could have your rehearsal dinner and they have a hotel attached. Go check it out.

    Goodl uck!

    Try Franklin Plaza.
    alot of people dont know how extremely affordable it is. My fiance and I are planning a wedding in february there, and they were really able to work with our budget. One of the best things about the venue, is that decor is beautiful.  Romantic, Glamorous and doesnt need alot of decoration.  It has fire places and beautiful reception, cocktail and then dinner area.  Give it a shot.  Tell them you heard it from Brian Cody's Fiance. ;)
