Recently, our sister property, The Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel, had a Wedding Expo where professionals with different expertise held a Question and Answer Session to help newly engaged couples. So today we decided to do a frequently asked question blog with answers to all of the popular questions couples are asking. Check out some of the questions we came up with below:
1.) What is an Outdoor Ballroom?
Our outdoor ballroom is truly unique, it modular design can comfortably accommodate anywhere from 100 to 500 guests. Its sides can be opened for a truly natural setting, but if mother nature isn’t on her best behavior we can put the sides down and turn on the heat or air conditioning to make it comfortable for you and your guests.
2.) How many weddings take place in one day?
Here at West Hills Country Club, we pride ourselves on hosting only one wedding a day, allowing our attention to be solely on you and your fiancés memorable day. Your wedding will get the individual attention it deserves from all our our professional staff.
3.) Do you have a wedding suite? When can I use it?
Yes, we do have a wedding suite with your own private bathroom, changing room area, and living room area with a television and iPod dock. You can use the room as early as 10AM.
4.) Where do we take pictures?
Our golf course is your canvas. You and your wedding party will be able to take pictures on almost 200 acres of land with beatiful backdrops such as the Hudson Valley hills, the Wallkill River, a rustic red bridge, and much more!
5.)Can I have a ceremony onsite?
Absolutely! We have a beautiful ceremony site right next to our outdoor ballroom with a breathtaking back drop of the Golf Course.
6.) Where will the ceremony take place if it rains?
The ceremony will take place in the reception portion of the Grand Outdoor Ballroom or in the Clubhouse Ballroom if available.
7.) Do you provide uplighting?
We do not, but we can recommend DJ companies and uplighting services to do so.
8.) When do I choose my menu, and linen colors?
We call that your menu visit. You should call to schedule your visit 8 to 6 weeks before the date of your wedding. This allows us plenty of time to place your orders, & gives you plenty of time to decide on your menu choices. Directional maps, place cards, & floor plan can also be provided at this visit.
9.) What about discounts?
Discounts are given after you have met your adult minimum. Children 5-12 years old are ½ price. Children 4 and younger are free. Professionals such as your DJ, Photographer, etc. are $10.00 less than adult price.
10.) Can I try the food before my Wedding Day?
West Hills proudly hosts multiple tasting events a year. Tasting will only be done on the dates stated on our website. Seating is limited to create an intimate & personal setting. It is highly recommended to make the required reservations as soon as possible to ensure that your party will be able to attend a date that is most convenient for you. Please speak with your wedding coordinator for details.
11.) Do you serve shots?
Unfortunately, we have a NO shot policy. Due to safe alcohol service, we are not permitted to serve shots on the bar, at anytime.
12.) Are there any hotels in the area?
Yes. There are several hotels nearby, but there is one that we are directly associated with – The Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham. Please call Jan Pierce, Director of Sales at the Microtel for more information at (845) 692-0098.
