I am an undecided bride and need the help of my current and past brides!!! All though i was previously looking at The Stony Hill vs. Macalusos I have decided that the rooms at those venues were just too LARGE for an 80 person wedding reception. This past Saturday I went to visit the Brickhouse in Wycoff and fell in love. I was happy that in person the ball room looked smaller than in the photos on their website. And they have soo many fun options for cocktail hour and a cigar bar that will be fun to unwind in once the party is over. I have never eaten here or been to a wedding here and I was hoping someone reading this has and can offer some input. After we went to the Brick house we drove to The Grain House in Morristown NJ. We weren’t even going here to look at it for our wedding but stopped in to have lunch on our way somewhere else. And of course I noticed a bride in the corner of my eye. Soo my mom and I took a peek into the reception space because one of the waitress said it was ok. I felt a little bad so I only got a quick glance and what I saw I liked. The dance floor/bar is separate from the tables. Which I think is a good idea cause you can sit at the table and talk without being right on the dance floor. Again here’s another place I’ve never been to before and I was hoping someone either had their wedding there or went to a wedding there and could give me some input. I would be doing the winter bride package at the Grain House, the only thing I didn’t like was that they don’t’ give you 3 items to choose from for entrees. But there is a hotel on site where my guests could stay and not have to travel anywhere else.
Wedding details: Approximately 80 guests 2/23/13 evening wedding, getting married at the same place as our reception.
I’m hoping that the Brick house will come down a bit on the price, she quoted us $115 + gratuity and tax and that’s a little too much for me.
At The Grain house, their winter wedding package is $99 ++, but she said she might be able to work on the price with me. We have to go back for a formal tour.
Any suggestions, photos, comments I can get on either venue would be great. I need to choose a place in the next couple of weeks!!!
