We are going to have a destination wedding oversea in October and we will have a reception in state for our friends and families who cannot make it to there around March 2010. We probably will do the lunch reception to keep down the budget.
We have looked around the venues in North and Central Jersey, and we both fall in love The Venteian in Garfield and The Westmount Country Club in West Paterson. We can’t decide which one we should go for and we need some advices about their food, services, reputation etc.

IMO the Westmount wins. Its gorgous and I have never heard one bad thing about it.

I love both venues but think that hte Westmount wins out between both. The only issue there is you have to use their florist which does an amazing job but can be pricey.

The Westmount Country Club is amazing! And the other venue is great as well! But if I had to choose it would be the Westmount Country Club. So far I have heard nothing but great things about them, no negative feedback.

Thanks ladies! To be honest, I do like Westmount little bit more than the Venetian. However we went to Venetian last Sunday and they offered us a great deal that we couldn’t reject it. We made our final decision and booked the Venetian, we believe we will enjoy it too, especially their wonderful food.

I went to a wedding at the Venetian a long time ago but it was very nice. Re the Westmont Country Club, not sure how in line with your vision they’ll stay. Listen to this story – a classy NYC friend had her wedding there and they "threw in" a hot dog/sausage truck during the cocktail hour. She was not happy. The groom and guys loved it of course 🙂 Not sure how I’d feel about that. I think I would be annoyed that they didn’t check with me first. I’d be like thanks but no thanks!
