What kind of place are you looking for? Max $$ pp? Roughly how many people?

There are many beautiful places that I wish we could get married at! ๐Ÿ™‚

I am but it’s in my hometown which is about 2.5 hours north of the city… I know the Poughkeepsie area is super-pretty, if you check out the local boards on the Knot, they might have some recommendations, at least for a starting point…You can also just google, which is what I did when I first started looking…Sorry I don’t have any concrete rec’s for ya!

I don’t know how far Plattsburgh is from the city, but I lived there when I was younger before I moved to PA and I liked it. You could check there.

@SoontoBeMrsKiss: Plattsburgh is near Canada, probably 6+ hours from the city ;o)

I’m from NYC and having my wedding upstate, but I’m in the same boat as TrailMix.  My wedding is about 2.5 hours away in Albany.

I second checking the Poughkeepsie area…it’s about 1.5 hours by train.

have you looked at Caramoor in Katonah?  It’s not quite upstate (depends who you ask) – about an hour from the city, but it’s very pretty

We were married in Saratoga Springs, just outside Albany. It’s absolutely beautiful there with a lot of different venues to choose from, and lots for your geusts to do. Plus, Albany is only about 15-20 mins away, and there’s an airport there, making it easy for any travel.

Aw man I wish I could help!  I live in the city too and I’m having my wedding upstate, but its also 2.5 hours out, around Albany.  I’d check Westchester, Yonkers.  Poughkeepsie and Kingston are possible too but I have family from Poughkeepsie and they don’t exactly rave about the town itself.  Hope you find something amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

I live in the city but am getting married in Rochester. For a place close to the city you could check out the Tarrytown Castle. I think they do weddings there but am not positive. It is a really pretty place and has pretty grouds. Also Newbourgh might have some places on the water.

WOW – y’all are talking like FOR REAL upstate. Plattsburgh & Rochester are gorgeous – can you imagine Fall or Christmas wedding up there? Siiighhh kinda jealous, that’d be so beautiful! Problem is, from NYC, you can drive to Boston faster than getting to those places. I grew up in Westchester, so anything north of White Plains or Tarrytown/ Tappan Zee Bridge is “upstate” to me. LOL

@ Jaxx – I’m with Gerbera. What’s the feel you’re looking for? # of people? Budget? There’s oooodles of places less than 45m outside of Grand Central or Penn Station. Have you looked at the Villa Barone in the Bronx? It’s kind of an old-school wedding factory, but you really can’t beat the price (I think they’re like $80-$90 pp which is unheard of around here). There’s one further up too in Mahopac I think. 

Let us know what you’re looking for & we might be able to suggest some better places. ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S. – @ Gerbera– don’t think I forgot about you, I’m still looking for those lists I had – I can’t find em. Fiance “cleaned” a couple weeks ago so things have gone missing… like the CD with all our wedding planning info on it. LOL

Have you looked into the Prospect Park boathouse? I know they’re not upstate but they might be reasonable. Or you can try anthonys pier 9 in new windsor NY.
