hello,

i was reading your add about the skylands manor and how you could email the pricing and menu package they have available. I have tried to contact them about pricing per person and they havent yet gotten back to me. If you could send me that information that would be wonderful! From the second i saw this place i fell in love with it and it is only mintues away from my house which is just perfect!

Thank you

Brianne

I found Mayfair to be very reasonable in comparison to everywhere else we looked. You might want to set up an appointment with them, can't hurt!

Any feedback would be great

Looked at alot of places in Northern NJ for Saturday night Prices
--can save people some leg work


Trump Golf Course(bedminster)--200++ Unbelievable. Fairy tail wedding!
Ivanka trump got married here---would be my top choice--out of price
range and a little far

Fiddler's elbow country club 160++--Very nice just a little bit to far for us

Crystal Plaza-235++ No outdoor area--room in nice--cocktail room average--overpriced

The Manor--109++ Antiquated and not big rooms at all--Felt suffocated--good for 150 people--the drive in is the nicest part

il TULIPANO--140++ It was ok room not that great--Beautiful gardens and food

Brooklake CC- 165++ very nice scenery and grounds. Room is elegant but there is nicer venues for same price

The Villa--Beautiful room--140++ Not good for summer wedding no real outside

Cresmont CC--no price build your menu

Pleasantdale Chateau- 253++ 199++-- for a friday---Fairytale wedding

The seasons--145 ++ nice room no outside--tons of food

Is all inclusive factoring in the 7% sales tax and 20% service charge?

Also, how do you know what to tip? My place includes a 20% service charge which they said includes everyone - except the Maitre'd. how much do we tip him?

Just FYI for anyone venue shopping:

My fiance and I just left the Liberty House and were blown away by how badly we were treated. We are planning a wedding of approximately 250 people and would think that a location would want to sell it to the people viewing it. Apparently not.

Not only was the girl at the front INCREDIBLY rude and nasty to us but the person who showed us the the place was patronizing and seemed to lack knowledge. She treated us as if we had no idea what we were doing, and while we may look young we are both around 30 year old. The upstairs room is only nice because of the view and the "bridal suite" was a curtain on a balcony.

Its a shame that this experience left such a bad taste in my mouth, as I probably would have gone for dinner since I live about 1/2 a mile from the location. They have lost a customer in the banquet and dinner sense all together.

If the service is this bad now, why would I book a wedding with them? Oh, and its overpriced for what they offer. 180 regular priced, 150 off season saturday in March, 155 Sunday. 200 person guarantee for any Saturday night.

no ++ means plus tax and gratuity. The average is about 27% give or take 2%.

Has anyone ever been to a wedding/ hosted their wedding at Dolce in Basking Ridge? How is the food & service? I'm really taken with the site, and hoping for a hotel wedding since I will have 20+ out of town guests. Also strongly considering the Primavera (though no hotel), which I've read tons of good reviews for.

Thanks!

Check out il Villaggio in Carlstadt, New Jersey...the hall itself can fit up to 220-250ppl,something around that. It's beautiful,Italian cousine and decor. My friend had a wedding there and the food was amazing!!
The prices are negotiable, depands on season and time of a day. You can have you reception as well as ceremony. Ask for John the manager...very nice person, young and very helpful.
The food was AMAZING

LIVE, LOVE , LOUGH Cool

Yes! Il Villaggio is quite amazing. We are about the book there (in the process of negotiating with John the manager now). We have been "wow'd" every step of the way. The food, the service, the decor, the attention to detail - the people at Il Villaggio make us feel like they have one thing in mind - us. And that is huge. Not to mention the menu has so much food. As you can tell, I am really excited about this place.

As for Liberty House - I had the SAME experience. The woman with whom we met was late for our meeting and short with us. I felt extremely rushed, and the selection of food (especially as compared to Il Villaggio) was slim pickins. I don't know if we caught her on a bad day, but there can be no excuse for rushing people (on a weekday non-holiday too!) who are interested in spending over $25k at your venue.

I just got engaged 2 weeks ago and ever since then I have been pulling my hair out thinking about planning a wedding! My web browser was overloaded with links to reception sites that I probably can't even afford!

This forum has been an absolute lifesaver!!! I just went back and read all the way from the beginning and I was able to narrow my list down significantly based on all of the prices and reviews that were posted. I think I can breath again...

Thanks to everyone who has been posting info here!

Hi,

I saw your post that you went to look at Florentine Gardens and the Skyland Manor. Could you give me any advice on choosing between the two? I know the food at the Florentine Gardens is amazing and the menu and choices are larger there, but I am going to see the Skyland Manor bc of the style. Any advice for a Fall wedding would be helpful! Thanks!

Hi Everyone!

Has anyone ever been to a wedding or went to visit the Crystal Springs Resort in vernon nj? It looks beautiful in the pictures! I was wondering about pricing information for a saturday evening for about 200 people?

Also, if anyone has any good suggestions for a venue with high ballroom ceilings on a budget of about 125 pp?

Thanks!
