Fox Hollow- WGP B+

Posted by bkbaby4life

Posted by Amor2009

Thank you everyone! We looked the WCC and thought the place was really nice and my parents have been to a wedding their and said the service and food was outstanding. My only issue is that we are planning a late fall/early winter wedding and I just felt we wouldn't get to utilize their beautiful grounds.

We also went to Jericho terrace-- and at first i was in love. But, the guarantee requested was higher then what we expected, which made us feel the place was too big for what we are looking for and not as homey.

Fox hollow is what we are looking for as far as the homey feel. The room we would get is the smaller room and the cocktail hour is the winter pavillian room. The dance floor is a nice size-- but the area where the band or dj sets up is off to the side not near the dance floor. I don't know if that should be a concern or not.



it was a concern for us..among other things in that room. they offered us the WGP room for our CH which we loved. and the ceremony room was gorgeous. .....but the reception room we hated. it was dark, the celiengs were low, the DJ was in an akward location...its just didnt work for us on many levels.

ive heard great things about westbury manor. also look into douglaston manor!




I remember you saying you didn't want a long engagement and are hoping to be married in 2009, unless someone cancelled, Wesbury Manor is not available....we tried....it was of GREAT sentimental value since we went to wedding at the WM as a first date

Definitely check out Douglaston Manor, I know they have dates available and the bridal suites are LOVELY. Prices are similar to Fox Hollow.

Have you thought about looking into the Garden Terrace room at Fox Hollow instead? I loved Fox Hollow but I liked the Garden Terrace room better... so they told me i could get that room if i could have guaranteed more people (unfortunately for us we couldnt make the guarantee for a Sat night, so we switched to a daytime wedding so we could be more flexible w/ the guarantee!) good luck!

I am booked at Fox Hollow and I totally know what your saying about the band/dj problem off to the side. That was my main reservation about that room. When I booked my band, they knew the room very well and know how to set up. Most band/djs know that they have to put the speakers on either side of the staircase, this way the people sitting at the table at not blown away.

As for feelng dark and gloomy, its a matter of opinion. Personally I find a lot of places tacky with all that marble....but thats MY opinion. I think the Briar Fox room is very pretty with the fireplace and the dark wood, I've seen it in pictures of fellow brides weddings and its amazing. I admit that I was not crazy about it the first time I saw it, but when its set for a wedding, it feels like a different room. That's why I choose fox hollow, its beauitful and not over-done. It does feel very homey and i loved the winter garden room for my cocktail hour.




i agree 100%!

Gotcha! I believe you are talking about the Briar Fox room (you go down a couple of steps, right?) at the FH. That is the room they offered us as well (with CH in the WGP), and we personally hated it. When we were there for the third time we saw the BF room set up for a wedding, and it was SO dark, we also didn't like the placement of the dj, and quite honestly it was kinda depressing and basementy.

ETA - Just one more thing about WCC - we also got married in November and we got to use the grounds a bit - just wear a shawl!




when you call a RH room "depressing and basementy" maybe you should consider the fact that there are people on these boards that are getting married in that 'depressing and basementy' room.
everyone is entitled to their own opinion but i would NEVER say that about a reception hall knowing that people on here might be getting married there.





THANK YOU... that was so rude to say those things... as i got married in the Briar Fox room... it was beyond GORGEOUS and perfect!
my guests raved about it to this day.. it was not at all dark...

I agree about the DJ. I really liked the fact that all his big ugly equipment will be to the side out of everyone's way and out of my pictures! His speakers will be by the front door by the pillars so they won't be so obvious.

I think it also depends on the month you are getting married. If it's a winter wedding, then that room is perfect! When I saw that gorgeous fireplace and imagined lighting that room with candles, I was sold!

Thanks again everyone! I am going to check out all the suggestions.

I really liked the room in the fox hollow-- I had just never seen the dj or band away from the dance floor. But it doesn't seem like a problem and the dj or band are professions so I am sure they know what to do! I think I will go back and look again.

Thanks again for all the great suggestions.

We're getting married at the Royalton. I wanted a mansion/homey feel and it's perfect. They throw in a lot of things that were extra at other places and all of the food is completely customizable. The staff has been fantastic so far. We even got to do a tasting and the food is out of this world!
We are also having around 150 people and they have room for up to 225 (I think).

im sure you have concerns abouat the DJ thing...but like i have mentioned .. it is actually better that they are behind the tables because they are completely out of everyone's way! and you dont even know they are there! the speakers are in the front by the doors.. very discreet as well.. so it was perfect the way it worked out..

most DJ's are very familiar with the Briar Fox's set up.. and there is no problems with it!!

Thank you everyone! We looked the WCC and thought the place was really nice and my parents have been to a wedding their and said the service and food was outstanding. My only issue is that we are planning a late fall/early winter wedding and I just felt we wouldn't get to utilize their beautiful grounds.

We also went to Jericho terrace-- and at first i was in love. But, the guarantee requested was higher then what we expected, which made us feel the place was too big for what we are looking for and not as homey.

Fox hollow is what we are looking for as far as the homey feel. The room we would get is the smaller room and the cocktail hour is the winter pavillian room. The dance floor is a nice size-- but the area where the band or dj sets up is off to the side not near the dance floor. I don't know if that should be a concern or not.

lol thats my room! i know she asked for an honest opinion but i get worried when i read stuff like that




Dont worry sweetie. While this is not my room i am a Fox Hollow bride & in MY OPINION It is by far one of the best places simply because of the food & the service. It is outstanding. Not to mention the homey feel. Everyone has their opinions of whatt hey like for their day. But there is a proper way of putting it across. I feellike if it wasnt for you that is all u need to say you dont have to give YOUR visual of the room.
Please respect everyone's decisions & lets learn to word our responses better. Or just use FM!!! thats why its here!

I think the Briar Fox room is very pretty with the fireplace and the dark wood, I've seen it in pictures of fellow brides weddings and its amazing. I admit that I was not crazy about it the first time I saw it, but when its set for a wedding, it feels like a different room. That's why I choose fox hollow, its beauitful and not over-done. It does feel very homey and i loved the winter garden room for my cocktail hour.




I am getting married at FH as well but I have the Garden Terrace room. However, i am having my CH in that room. I will admit I am not crazy about the room either but its mainly b.c of the low ceiling. BUT my friend had her reception in that room a few years back and it wasGREAT. I never even noticed the ceiling was low or anything, I didnt notice it until I checked out the place for myself. The only time I saw that room set up for a wedding was for my friends wedding...and it was beautiful (and she didnt even have floral arrangements!)

I am a FH bride and I was not offended by the comment made previously. Everyone is entittled to their opinions and most inportantly everyone has DIFFERENT tastes. The bride asked for an honest opinion and someone gave it to her. We are all adults here, there is no need to take things so personally.




THANK YOU.

As for the girls that DID get offended by my comment, I will reiterate, that was MY opinion. I said "WE PERSONALLY" meaning MY HUSBAND AND MYSELF - NO ONE ELSE. As I also said earlier, I REALLY REALLY liked the FH - we went back three times because we were so seriously considering getting married there. The food is delicious, the service is wonderful, but the BF room was not to OUR liking. Does that mean that other girls don't, can't or shouldn't like it? Of course not!!!!! Can we all please grow up!! The op was asking for HONEST OPINIONS and I gave her MINE. Do you want to know what people hve said about the hall I got married at? I've heard that it's prommy, old fashioned and tacky. Does that bother me? NO - because everyone is entitled to their own opinion!

ETA - to the op - I'm sorry to have ruined your thread. I always forget how childish soon-to-be-married women can be.

As for feelng dark and gloomy, its a matter of opinion. Personally I find a lot of places tacky with all that marble....but thats MY opinion. I think the Briar Fox room is very pretty with the fireplace and the dark wood, I've seen it in pictures of fellow brides weddings and its amazing. I admit that I was not crazy about it the first time I saw it, but when its set for a wedding, it feels like a different room. That's why I choose fox hollow, its beauitful and not over-done. It does feel very homey and i loved the winter garden room for my cocktail hour.




I am getting married at FH as well but I have the Garden Terrace room. However, i am having my CH in that room. I will admit I am not crazy about the room either but its mainly b.c of the low ceiling. BUT my friend had her reception in that room a few years back and it wasGREAT. I never even noticed the ceiling was low or anything, I didnt notice it until I checked out the place for myself. The only time I saw that room set up for a wedding was for my friends wedding...and it was beautiful (and she didnt even have floral arrangements!)

I am a FH bride and I was not offended by the comment made previously. Everyone is entittled to their opinions and most inportantly everyone has DIFFERENT tastes. The bride asked for an honest opinion and someone gave it to her. We are all adults here, there is no need to take things so personally.




THANK YOU.

As for the girls that DID get offended by my comment, I will reiterate, that was MY opinion. I said "WE PERSONALLY" meaning MY HUSBAND AND MYSELF - NO ONE ELSE. As I also said earlier, I REALLY REALLY liked the FH - we went back three times because we were so seriously considering getting married there. The food is delicious, the service is wonderful, but the BF room was not to OUR liking. Does that mean that other girls don't, can't or shouldn't like it? Of course not!!!!! Can we all please grow up!! The op was asking for HONEST OPINIONS and I gave her MINE. Do you want to know what people hve said about the hall I got married at? I've heard that it's prommy, old fashioned and tacky. Does that bother me? NO - because everyone is entitled to their own opinion!

ETA - to the op - I'm sorry to have ruined your thread. I always forget how childish soon-to-be-married women can be.




While we understand it is your opinion and honestly, it doesnt bother me but im also not having my reception in that room. However, it is not the opinion that hurt people, it is how it was stated. There is no need to give your visual. you just need to say it wasnt for us period. It hurts people's feelings. And quite obviously, you have known this first hand from posters who rudely commented about your RH. Its the choice of words here that are being disputed not your actual opinion. if you feel the need to use your visual as an examle it could havebeen used in an FM. Where no-body's feelings are hurt. Im so rry that peple did this to you during your process but please remember how it obviously made you feel. And even if it didnt bother you at all. The girls here are telling you that it hurt them. So instead of fighting your choice of words just apologize for the poor decision of them & and move on. This is coming from a very mature older bride to be.
