First of all – CONGRATS! Another NYC actress bride, how fun!

I don’t know specifically where they’ll allow you to hold your ceremony under cover, but there’s a section of the CP website that talks about weddings and they have designated CP wedding planners who might be able to help you, especially given your short time frame. The link is here:

Good luck and definitely keep a fellow actress-bride posted! 🙂

P.S. My initial thought was Belvedere castle, but you’d have to ask if they let people hold ceremonies there. Wouldn’t that be fantastic, though?

the park sounds beautiful!

how about still have it in the park but have a back up plan like a tent in case it rains: I applied for a permit for photography in the conservancy at the park  I vaguely remember seeing something about a tent

 

how about one of your theaters-you probably have connections

how about the brooklyn gardens

bryant park

battery park

an art gallery

a winery in long island

if it weren’t for the fact that I’m Catholic and have to get married in church I would have done the park

Yes, a theater is definitely an option. Hence, ours! 🙂

Bryant Park doesn’t have any cover, so that won’t help, although we had our engagement party there! It was gorgeous, but the threat of rain had me seriously stressed.

You could always do a cute city hall ceremony and then splurge on an amazing dinner for 30 somewhere, that would be fun!

I would probably call and say it’s for a party and see the charges, then call back and say it’s for a wedding.  If there is an upcharge, I would definitely ask why there is an upcharge to see if you can get around it.

If you don’t mind Brooklyn, Prospect Park has a great boathouse space.

I just joined to I could tell you about the great NYC location I found for my wedding- my fiance and I are getting married in the Empire State Building on the 55th floor.

There’s a company called Ultimate USA Weddings (I know, sounds fishy, but my Mom and I actually flew to NYC and checked them out before we booked anything and they are both legit AND extremely nice and helpful.)

They have a beautiful suite in the Empire State Building that holds up to 40 people, but they also do ceremonies in Central Park, or any other location that you want.

Also, they are one of the cheapest vendors I’ve seen anywhere (I live in Ohio and it was cheaper to do it in NYC than right here at home, depending on which venue we wanted) 

I’m getting married in October (so the 10th is probably not a date that they have available, sorry about that one) and using them.  So far, they’ve been great, and so, so helpful.

Drop me a message if you’d like thier e-mail address, I’d be more than happy to give it to you!
