Good afternoon all,
I know this gets discussed all the time on this board. My fiance and I are getting married, summer 2011 and we need a kosher wedding. We are having about 175 people and would like to spend no more than $60/pp (including venue and catering costs).
So far we have looked at 2 places. Rockwood Park Jewish Center at $40/pp and Crest Hollow Country Club at $60/pp. $60/pp is the top of our budget.
We are looking to get married in the greater New York area and would like to not have our Brooklyn people driving more than an hour-ish. Which means Crest Hollow is about as far out on Long Island as we would want to go. We would be willing to look at Westchester/Jersey if it's around an hour's drive.
We also need a place that allows three things, mixed seating, mixed dancing and for us to use our own rabbi.
