We have narrowed down the venue search to Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers and Bridgewaters at South Street Seaport. We have 150 guests in Summer of 2010. We are having such a hard time deciding between the two! We like that they both have great views but aren’t completely outside and we love the hard wood floors. A bit concerned about the ceremony at Bridgewaters (we would have it in the smaller room with the wrap around terrace). While the ceremony at Lighthouse would probably be easier to make beautiful. Lighthouse is more expensive, which is an obvious concern, but it is in our budget (just the very top). Help us please! What are we to do!?!

I’m bias, but I vote Bridgewaters! I got married in January at Bridgewates in the Bridge room. The people at Bridgewaters were wonderful, knew how to run a wedding and were very willing to meet many of our needs. The food was excellent! Since there are so many windows w/nice views in BW, I think you really don’t need much to decorate. PM me if you want to see pics of my wedding in the Bridge room or any other info about Bridgewaters. Plus, if you go with the less expensive option, you’ll have more money in your budget for decor!
Good luck, I’m sure you’ll decide on the best option for your needs!
