Do you mind sharing your budget? I’ll put my thinking cap on.

Hmm… Most of the venues in the Westchester or Long Island areas would require at least a short cab ride from any train stations.  Would that be ok? Or do you need it to be withing walking distance from the train.  Just asking because I was not clear on the second requirement.  The only wedding venue that I know of on Long Island that is right next to the train station is the Garden City Hotel.  If you are open to guests needing to take a short cab rides from a train station then there are many many many more possibilities.

@lila8:  Maybe he no longer works there. Have you tried calling others at the venue and explaining what’s happened?

@lila8:  Got it, that’s a shame, I’m sorry!

Make sure you review them on Yelp!

I have no idea if its in your budget or not, but have you looked at Wave Hill in the Bronx? It’s a beautiful spot for an outdoor ceremony!

I unfortunately don’t have any venue suggestions to give, but I would probably call the venue one last time and confront them directly. Let them know that you think they have been unprofessional and give them one last chance to own up to their promises, and if/when they don’t, be sure to leave some negative reviews on yelp, weddingwire, etc.

 

It’s not okay for any business to be so dishonest and to string you along like that, and I would absolutely warn other brides about your bad experience with their lack of professionalism. The least they could do is let you know they booked someone else in the space instead of wasting your time!

The New Leaf Restaurant in Fort Tryon Park is gorgeous for weddings. YOu can have your ceremony outdoors in the park and your reception in the cafe. I’m not sure what the price per person is — it might be higher than $120, but you could check it out. It’s technically in NYC, and it’s about 30-45 minutes from Penn Station or Grand Central.

I live in Westchester and have been trying to think of some places near train stations. Maybe Half Moon in Dobb’s Ferry, Red Hat in Irvington or Riverview near the Greystone station?

I am not sure what the prices/restrictions are, but they are all beautiful venues right on the Hudson River. I’ll keep an eye for other places that might fit your requirements. GOOD LUCK!

@lila8:  how about Harvest on the Hudson http://www.harvest2000.com/hoh/ in Westchester?

According to google maps, it’s a 6 minute walk from the train station, and it’s beautiful!
