My fiance and I are just got engaged, and one of the venues we are interested in is the Bronx Zoo (something unque). I wanted to find out if anyone has had their wedding there, or has been to a wedding at the zoo, and would be able to provide me with some information.
Pretty much I would like to find out how long most wedding last, and how is the catering in general (i.e. how does the food taste, if they provide a good selection, what is usually included, etc.), and at what times are the weddings usually held and are there visitors roaming around while the wedding is going on.
Thank you for your help!

You might try pming zoobride1015. She got married there. She mentions it a little bit in this thread http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/a-list-of-pre-wedding-things-no-one-ever-talks-about
There is also this thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/has-anyone-attended-or-had-their-wedding-at-the-bronx-zoo
BellaCat is also getting married there.
Some of these people haven’t posted very much so I’m not sure if they still check their messages, but its a start. Good luck with planning!

Pretty sure I’ve seen a Bronx Zoo wedding or three on Style Me Pretty too. 🙂 Wouldn’t hurt to check there for how people have set things up.

I live in NYC and can help you coordinate. It all depends on when you have your wedding. Keep in mind that weekends will be most crowded and there will be a lot of public traffic and noise.
There is the Asia section that has wonderful backdrops and reds and lots of greenery. Here’s the link. Weddings there are great, but I would recommend doing it on a Sunday morning or on a weekday. Call me if you need guidance. I’m a wedding planner and videographer.

I book the weddings at the NY Zoos and Aquarium and would be happy to give you some info or pictures.
As for the post above mine, the website is correct but the information about the zoo and what we offer is not.
Good Luck and feel free to reach out to me. [email protected]
