I am new to this board and recently engaged, and I need some advice about my venue. I am from Westchester, and my fiance is from Bergen County, so we are looking at venues in both areas. We have a large wedding of about 325 - 350 people, and I need a place that can hold us all comfortably.
My fiance and I have looked at a million venues, and we have narrowed it down to two- one is a Saturday night at the Pearl River Hilton in April 2012, and the other is a Saturday night at the Westmount Country Club in February, 2012.
When I first saw PRH, I was in love. I love how it is very classic, and they seeem really accomodating. I think it is very beautiful, and I love that the wedding party can all stay over. It felt like it would be my own private hotel for my wedding weekend. Does anyone have an insight about the venue? Were they accomodating? How was the food? Did they seem attentive to detail? Etc- all information would be greatly appreciated.
Walking into Wetsmount Country Club was amazing. The venue is just gorgeous, but it is the opposite of PRH. It is not classic, but avant garde and trendy. I heard the food is delicious, and the space is interesting and beautiful. They also seem very attentive. The problem is, the only time we would be able to book the venue would be in February, and I never pictured myself having a winter wedding.
I would love any advice that you have with respect to either of these venues. Please help!!
