opinions girls!!!!

I think I've fallen in love with the idea of having a wedding at a winery. I got in touch with someone at Martha Clara in Riverhead and they quoted a 3500 site fee for a Friday night in September/ October. Before I rule this idea out...I wanted to check on outside caterers. I want to keep within my budget of 12,000 total for food. And if I pay 3500 for a site that only leaves me with 8500 left for food and drinks I guess. I am severely clueless.

I am going to check out caterers...but can anyone help me out with prices. What is too much...what is too little...what should be included. I like good food...actually I like all food (it takes a lot of eating to get to my weight) but I am not looking to go overboard with filet mignon or lobster tails.

On a side note (do i write too much?) I am checking out the Watermill, Smithtown Landing, Bayview House and West Sayville Country Club this coming Saturday.

Thanks in advance.
Cynthia

Re: opinions girls!!!!

ok about Martha Clara - you must buy all your wine from them, due to town code you can't have music played after 10pm

Re: opinions girls!!!!

I had wanted a winery wedding and was looking into Raphael, it's soo pretty. But then we decided on December and I wanted more of an inn-feel. Oh and I fell in love with East Wind

Re: opinions girls!!!!

My wedding is going to be on a Saturday at Pellegrini (our favorite vineyard)...the site fee is more than you were quoted by Martha Clara...but the caterer we're using is very reasonable, great to deal with, and works at Pellegrini very often...it works out to about $60 pp for food...and open bar is another $15 or 20pp (I don't have the details in front of me)...check them out - Christopher Michael Caterers at Jamesport Country Kitchen - Matt Kar - he's so laid back and friendly.
