What should I know when choosing a Hudson Valley wedding venue?

Revelry Cooperative’s Jules Miller says, “When shopping for upstate venues, here are few things to be aware of: noise curfews, water and power hookups, and transportation. Many locations have an amplified music curfew of 10 or 11 pm if they are outside of a commercial district. Also ask about water and electricity hookups near your reception site if you are setting up a tent for dinner and dancing. Lastly, transportation options, such as Ubers and taxis, are scarce, so arranging transportation for your guests to and from your venue is key for safety and convenience.

“Since you are typically planning multiple events around your wedding, an experienced planner is key to make sure everything goes off as planned.”

What wedding weekend activities can I plan for my wedding party in the Hudson Valley?

Miller shares, “Many venues have suggestions for nearby activities for your guests. Make sure to include hiking trails, breweries, antique shops and any other fun nearby destinations in your welcome bag or on your website so guests can make the most of their weekend away. The Hudson Valley has become a major hub for artists, chefs, and makers. There is an incredible mix of creativity and nature that is unique to the area and appealing to so many couples. There really is something for everyone.”
