Live Out Your Woodstock Dreams at These Catskills Wedding Venues
Just beyond the stunning Hudson Valley lie the Catskill Mountains in Southeastern New York. If a barn wedding venue on a private estate is your vibe, you'll fall in love with the venues this region has to offer. Most of the venues in the Catskills offer the option to rent out the property for the entire weekend, giving you and your guests the opportunity to set up camp (literally) for an unforgettable event.
One thing to note: If you do want to tap into those Woodstock vibes and camp under the stars after a big outdoor wedding, most of these venues are only open from May through October, when it's safe and fun to spend all your time outside.
You won't find a ton of options for rehearsal dinner or brunch spots, but who needs trendy restaurants when you can bring in caterers, tents and a little creativity to create a destination wedding experience that's truly your own? But if you want outdoor spaces with spectacular views and an all-inclusive weekend where you can dance the night away, you may just fall in love with one of these Catskills wedding venues.
