Looking for some real world experience with New York’s Brooklyn Botanic Garden as a wedding venue. All wedding sites seem to provide same reviews, which we are thinking might be provided by the vendor. Can you please share good and bad experiences with the Palm House at BBG so that we can have a more balanced idea of the pros and cons?

I don’t have that much experience with it. I did consider it as a potential venue. It’s a lovely space. There are a couple of options for your cocktail hour space. Depending on the season there are options outside for the ceremony space. The food is good and the packages seemed reasonable. Definitely go visit. It’s pricey and difficult to book during peak season but if you want it off season then it’s not so bad.

I went to a corporate event there a long time ago and I remember it being a very pretty, elegant location. I remember it being very nice in the evening to look outside at the sky through the glass and the outdoor pond area. Someone fell into the koi pond later that night!
Sorry, that’s all I have. I don’t have any specific comments about the food or service. Also, it was a while ago, so I don’t know if it any of this is still true.
Also went to a wedding reception in prospect park, which is also a nice location. I think it’s the picnic house. It’s not as striking but still pretty.

DH and I looked there for our wedding. It was very pretty, but honestly WAY to botanical for us. I felt like I was being attaked by trees and plants. Something to keep in mind. Also, we got married in January, and the price was dramatically lower than what it is in Spring/Summer
