@Celia - Not quite sure yet! FH & I have seen three places so far (Crystal Point YC, Doolans & Sunset Ballroom) and have a few more scheduled over the coming weeks. So many beautiful venues here in NJ!

Hmmmmm...It sounds like your in middle /south jersey.
My faves in that area are Windows on the Water (I believe in Seabright?) and The English Manor in Ocean (it is really a hidden gem....). If you don't need to be on the shore (gorgeous in December) you might check into the Sterling Ballroom. I know it's a hotel venue, but they have a great, innovative menu and the staff is lovely. Having everyone on site might be a real plus.
@Allison - Gramercy at Lakeside Manor literally just popped up on my radar this morning! Not sure of the pricing so I'll have to reach out. What hotel are your guests going to be staying at? I'm on with us going over budget on a venue that we love, but having to think about transportation to/from a hotel for our guests may put us over budget.
@DancingonWater - my FMIL mentioned Martells in Bayville as well. Have to reach out for their pricing, too. But I did a quick search and couldn't see a ton of hotels in the area either. Which hotel are your guests staying in?
Thanks all for your posts! Love schmoozing with my Jersey girls!
