Looking for NJ wedding halls

Hey guys, i am planning on getting married around Sept/Oct/Nov of 2012 and just started looking for a wedding hall. We are expecting around 150 guests and would like it on a Saturday. Good food is very important as well as a nice space with room to dance and have fun. We live in the northern/central jersey, and looking at places within a hour of the holland tunnel. (in the vicinity of, but definitely not limited to, edison, warren, morristown, belleville, jersey city, etc.) A few of the places we looked at are very expensive and it just feels crazy to be spending that much on a single day. Anyone have any recomendations on a reasonably priced place?

  1. I really have no idea what kind of prices they are charging lately, but a very close friend held her wedding at the Berkeley Plaza, in Berkeley Heights a few years back and I was very impressed. The food was amazing, and the space was beautiful. If I remember correctly, they got a great deal because they held their wedding on Halloween. (it was an awesome wedding - no costumes as it was a fairly formal affair, and they had these spectacular carved jack o'lanterns as the center pieces, among other things , very fun.)

    1. I have heard that the Martinsville Inn is very affordable.

      1. Each about 25 minutes or so from the Holland and good in their own way. Might be worth looking into.

        1. I have no idea as to cost, but recently attended a party at Cedar Hill Country Club in Livingston of similar 150 person size. Very nice space and the food was good.

          1. Perona Farms in Andover, Sussex County. A little further out, but the food is great and the scenery is fantastic, especially in the fall. We got married there October 11, 2008. Totally worth a visit!

              We were at a wedding this past weekend at The Beacon Hill Country Club in Atlantic Highlands.

              Food was tremendous and the setting was beautiful with views of Manhattan and the Verazono Bridge. There were 175 people and the dance floor was packed all night long.

              I have no idea of the cost but there were about 75 of the bride and groom's friends from manhattan & Brooklynn that all took a 45 minute ferry ride to 2 miles away from the wedding.

              They had a luxury van that brought peopl from the ferry and back so none of the younger revelers were not driving.
