  • Wedding: August 2015

@StarIzInkd:  I live right near SI now but in NJ …. we are getting married at Davids Country Inn in Hackettstown, NJ. I know its probably not good location wise for you but it could more intimate if you have like a “mini destination wedding”..It’s a pretty easy ride from NYC and I don’t think it’s bad from SI /Middlesex county, NJ. 

We are getting a decent price and lots of extras no other places can hold a candle to for only $113 a head including tax & tip. Sept & Oct are really popular months to get married. If you want to save go for Jan-April or August and July. My venues prices were around the same range for August as they were for the winter. I think bc it’s so hot but that doesn’t matter to me bc nothing will really be outside but pics.

In NJ December was absolutely cheaper than October. It wasnt as cheap as January or february but it WAS cheaper.

  • Wedding: October 2015

we were told the same thing about October. I’ve had my heart set on an October wedding for YEARS i mean YEARS. I was shocked to find out apparently it’s peak season… Since when? You can look at West Lake in Patchogue as a venue. It’s a little dates i’ll be honest but the staff is friendly and the price we were quoted was $85 per person. If you’re willing to move it to November or December go to Windows on the Lake. I’ts the most beautiful place i’ve seen so far. . The price i was quoted was $90 per person. Frank was nice but a little pushy. There is a cheaper menu option with less choices, you just have to ask. They will NOT freely show that to you. I was glad my mom was there and asked for it. It’s like a $3000 difference. They have a bridal showcase November 24th at 5PM. I’ts a Sunday

I think it just depends on the venue.  My venue just charges a minimum for food and beverages spent.  It does change depending on season and day of the week… however, even at the lowest meal plan we’d easily meet the highest minimum.

Yup, most places were May 1-Oct 31 for “in season” prices.  Crazy!  I can’t help you out with any venues, as we were trying to stay out east! 🙂  Check out LIWeddings, there are a lot of helpful ladies there!
