Lake Terrace in Lakewood is very nice, though I think it’s expensive.June 22, 2011 12:02 am at 12:02 am #780089HealthParticipant
The new place on 38th is very nice. People have gotten married in the Garden State Arts center -exit 116 on the Parkway if you live in Jersey.June 22, 2011 12:27 am at 12:27 am #780090oomisParticipant
Near Bear Mountain, Anthony’s Pier Nine. GORGEOUS chuppah room, has the feel of an outdoor garden wedding.June 22, 2011 12:44 am at 12:44 am #780091happiestMember

What you sort of touched on: If its too hard to get to without a car you need to be prepared to have people not come at all and probably not too many for dancing.
Is there anything we should know about? ?June 22, 2011 3:32 am at 3:32 am #780101brotherofursParticipant
my parents went to a wedding recently that was in a museum.
everyone came back from it and said the room they danced in looked gorgeous-i heard they didn’t need so much flowers because there were waterfalls
don’t know which museum but i can find out if u wantJune 22, 2011 3:36 am at 3:36 am #780102
kapusta…all in good time, but i figure its something to contemplate once i find my mr perfect aka gorgeous football player… brother, i would totally appreciate if u could find that out, i know people do it in the childrens museum in ch, but that seems borderline tacky…!?!?June 22, 2011 3:45 am at 3:45 am #780103sheinMember
Why not have it on a football field?June 22, 2011 3:45 am at 3:45 am #780104

What do you think of the rotunda at kingsboro college??June 22, 2011 4:29 am at 4:29 am #780107
I mentioned the Rotunda to my daughter, who attended there @ the time, when she was engaged… beautiful views.June 22, 2011 4:33 am at 4:33 am #780108nachasMember
Anthonys Pier Nine is stunning and very different,but the drive at night or in bad weather could be a challenge.
I got married in Terrace on the Park years ago. I have not been to it in awhile so I dont know if is the same, but back then is was a real great place to get married.June 22, 2011 12:31 pm at 12:31 pm #780109
Crest Hollow Country Club seems to be regaining popularity in our velt. Lovely to have an outdoor chuppah provided the weather cooperates. Ditto Marina Del Rey.
I remember telling a cousin of mine, who was raving about the food at a wedding he attended, that if that’s what he remembers best, it probably wasn’t very leibidich. Which is to say that no one will remember if you made it in a fancy, different place or not, because that’s not the essence of the simcha. The ruach is.June 22, 2011 2:17 pm at 2:17 pm #780110dunnoMember
There’s a new place in Passaic…something with a “V”June 22, 2011 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #780111
crest hollow is nice, but a little far out…looking more for something between monsey, brooklyn and lakewood….June 22, 2011 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #780112TheGoqParticipant
cshapiro no one else said it so i will MAZEL TOV!!!June 22, 2011 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #780113gregaaronMember
Now there’s a good idea. I recommend the Metrodome in Minnesota – after last winter, there’s a hole in the roof for an outdoor chuppah, plus, even with the Vikings having been to four Super Bowls, the kallah would still be the first person there to ever get a ring.June 22, 2011 10:40 pm at 10:40 pm #780114brotherofursParticipant
it’s called the brooklyn museum, it’s on eastern parkwayJune 22, 2011 11:31 pm at 11:31 pm #780115RABBAIMParticipant
Prospect park is gorgeous. Chuppah near the Lake…… catering setup near the big house in the middle. pix are incredible. Just daven for no rainJune 22, 2011 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm #780116YenteMember
There is a place called “Old Tappen Manor” and it’s in Old Tappen, NY. It’s a beautiful and seren place. The Chuppah is right in front of a nice waterfall. It just looks gorgeous. It’s not too far from Monsey.June 23, 2011 1:47 am at 1:47 am #780117oomisParticipant
Terrace on the Park IS nice as is Marina del Rey, if you don’t want to travel too far.June 23, 2011 12:32 pm at 12:32 pm #780118
You didn’t mention how many people you’re inviting, because if you’re doing something smaller, Tarrytown House is very pretty. Probably can do up to about 200-250, which is too small a venue for most of us these days.
Which brings to mind the demise of the Washington Hotel, which was a wonderful place in every way – the caterers were delightful to deal with, food was excellent, decor was well maintained. But I heard that when they had the opportunity to expand to accommodate the larger simchas we all seem to make these days, they opted out. I think there’s a nursing home or senior residence on the property now.June 23, 2011 6:37 pm at 6:37 pm #780119SacrilegeMember
The Foundry. LOVE!June 24, 2011 9:16 am at 9:16 am #780120
omg the foundry looks gorgeous, but its way too small, do jewish people have weddings there?June 24, 2011 11:48 am at 11:48 am #780121
brotherofurs: “it’s called the brooklyn museum, it’s on eastern parkway”.
no.. it’s The Jewish Children’s Museum, on Eastern P’kway across from 770 (same side of the street).June 24, 2011 12:08 pm at 12:08 pm #780122
If you’re going for broke, there’s always places like the Waldorf or Plaza, which certainly have large ballrooms.June 24, 2011 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #780123happiestMember
I know someone who made a wedding in Yankee stadium… actually, I don’t know the person personally but I know someone who went to the wedding.
She said it was beautiful and very well done!!June 24, 2011 4:20 pm at 4:20 pm #780124SacrilegeMember
The Foundry is absolutely magical. I looked in to it when I was working on event planning. For the ‘typical’ Jewish wedding it would probably be too small. The interior holds about 100-125 people seated and the exterior holds (if I remember correctly) about 150.
For a smaller wedding I cant think of a better venue.
