Wedding Reception/Venue in Westchester or Rockland - Please help!

Nyx | Mar 1, 2010 12:32 PM

Would REALLY appreciate some help! I'm planning a late September wedding in Westchester. We found a nice outdoor ceremony location in one of Westchester rivertowns. All that remains is to find a nice place for a reception dinner. We want something within a reasonable distance of the ceremony (so, towns like Tarrytown, Dobbs, Ferry, Irvington, Hastings-on-Hudson, maybe even White Plains, etc), OR, just over the bridge in Nyack - or close to Nyack - would be fine too.

Our wedding: around 100 people. We looked at a few restaurants so far, but most of them would cost as much as (if not more than) just doing the whole banquet hall thing. Harvest on Hudson, for example, was a bit more than we wanted to spend.

Are there any places you'd recommend on either side of the bridge for a nice reception dinner? Hopefully with some room for dancing, too, if the tables were set up right. We're both definitely FOOD people... going for a place that's quaint, elegant, and yummy... without breaking our banks! Any thoughts???

If we can't find a nice reception dinner spot - we'll have to scrap our preferred ceremony site and find some kind of all-inclusive space for ceremony + reception (like a banquet hall). Didn't like those wedding venues in New Rochelle too much. Any recommendations?

Would really appreciate any help at all... very stressed about this!!
