Wedding Venue Cost: Westbury Manor #2

Previously, we saw that the wedding venue cost at Westbury Manor was around $25,673. This cost was for their Manor Room, which fits up to 280 people and requires a minimum of 185 people. The venue, however, does offer a smaller more intimate room called the Garden Room! Have a look at the cost breakdown for the Garden Room at Westbury Manor.     Wedding Venue: Westbury Manor Date Price Quoted:¬†May 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: June 2014 (Saturday evening) Price Assumptions: Includes cocktail hour and reception for 150 guests Room Name:¬†Garden Room Capacity: ~140 Venue Fee: $0 Catering Per Person: $119 Tax: 8.875% Gratuity: 20% Total Wedding Venue Cost: $23,321   The Main Point To remain consistent like before, I’ve assumed 150 guests even though the capacity for the Garden Room is technically 140 guests. As you can see, the catering cost per person drops from $131 to $119, resulting in $2,352 of savings. In addition, you can have your ceremony at Westbury Manor and the reception at...

Wedding Venue Cost: Westbury Manor

If NYIT de Seversky is out of your budget but you still want a wedding in a traditional mansion, have a look at Westbury Manor, another popular mansion venue in Long Island. Surrounded by elegant gardens and lots of green, Westbury Manor is especially great when the season changes and has a fantastic charm. The price is quite reasonable as well and a good value more along the lines of Fox Hollow and Jericho Terrace.     Wedding Venue: Westbury Manor Date Price Quoted: May 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: June 2014 (Saturday evening) Price Assumptions: Includes cocktail hour and reception for 150 guests Room Name: Manor Room Capacity: ~280 Venue Fee: $0 Catering Per Person: $131 Tax: 8.875% Gratuity: 20% Total Wedding Venue Cost: $25,673   The Main Point One main point to note is that Westbury Manor does not do both a ceremony and reception on Saturday evenings. For Saturday evenings, they offer a cocktail hour and a reception, which lasts five hours! You will, however, have...

Wedding Venue Cost: NYIT de Seversky Mansion #2

Since the cost to book the NYIT de Seversky Mansion can be quite high, a good option might be to look into Friday or Sunday weddings. I asked NYIT de Seversky Mansion specifically about Sunday weddings, and here is the information I received:     Wedding Venue: NYIT de Seversky Mansion Date Price Quoted: November 2012 Wedding Date Quoted For: Peak season Sunday evenings Price Assumptions: Includes ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception for 150 guests Room Name: Ballroom Capacity: ~150 Venue Fee: $2,500 Catering Per Person: $150 Tax: 8.875% Gratuity: 20% Total Wedding Venue Cost: $32,118   The Main Point Unlike the Palm House at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, NYIT de Seversky Mansion charges the same $2,500 venue fee even if you have a wedding during a less popular time, such as on a Friday or a Sunday. The catering charge per person is the only aspect that changes. For a Sunday evening wedding, the catering per person drops from $200 a person to $150 a person. The total...

Wedding Venue Cost: NYIT de Seversky Mansion

New York Institute of Technology’s Old Westbury campus houses the NYIT de Seversky Mansion, one of the top wedding venues in Long Island. Whether you’ve always thought a mansion would be a great venue for your wedding or you were inspired by the recent Great Gatsby movie to throw a Gatsby-esque party for your big day, you will want to check out the NYIT de Seversky Mansion.     Wedding Venue: NYIT de Seversky Mansion Date Price Quoted: November 2012 Wedding Date Quoted For: September 2013 (Saturday evening) Price Assumptions: Includes ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception for 150 guests Room Name: Ballroom Capacity: ~150 Venue Fee: $2,500 Catering Per Person: $200 Tax: 8.875% Gratuity: 20% Total Wedding Venue Cost: $41,917   The Main Point NYIT de Seversky Mansion’s price is certainly on the higher side of venues I have analyzed recently but if you compare the price to that of other so-called mansion venues in the area, the price is actually quite reasonable. The reviews are great, and the...

Wedding Venue Cost: Jericho Terrace

Another terrific and good-value wedding venue option is Jericho Terrace in Long Island. Like Fox Hollow, Jericho Terrace has many rooms to choose from with different capacities. Their prices are similar as well.     Wedding Venue: Jericho Terrace Date Price Quoted: November 2012 Wedding Date Quoted For: July 2013 (Saturday evening) Price Assumptions: Includes ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception for 150 guests Room Name: Penthouse Room Capacity: ~250 Venue Fee: $0 Catering Per Person (Low Range): $100 Catering Per Person (High Range): $125 Tax: 8.875% Gratuity: 20% Total Wedding Venue Cost: $22,047   The Main Point Jericho Terrace has a different feel and style than Fox Hollow. In my opinion, Fox Hollow has more of a classy, country club sort of vibe while Jericho Terrace has more of a grand ballroom kind of vibe. As noted before, however, each venue also has different rooms that possess their own unique characteristics. Jericho Terrace’s Dome Room, for example, has a big glass dome in the middle of the room, which...

Wedding Venue Cost: Fox Hollow

The last wedding venue I discussed, The Palm House at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, is definitely on the pricy side. Going down in price, however, does not necessarily mean lower quality. Fox Hollow in Long Island is a perfect example. It is consistently rated one of the best venues in Long Island and yet, the cost is extremely well-priced. I personally think it is the #1 value amongst Long Island venues but take a look yourself at the cost breakdown for Fox Hollow’s Garden Terrace room:     Wedding Venue: Fox Hollow Date Price Quoted: November 2012 Wedding Date Quoted For: July 2013 (Saturday evening) Price Assumptions: Includes ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception for 150 guests Room Name: Garden Terrace Capacity: ~300 Venue Fee: $0 Catering Per Person: $115 Tax: 8.875% Gratuity: 20% Total Wedding Venue Cost: $22,537   The Main Point Although the minimum number of guests required for Fox Hollow’s Garden Terrace room is 175, I made the assumption of 150 guests since that is what I assumed...
