Silly question, but wouldn’t the wedding planner take care of that?

The wedding planner does arrange for the permits, etc for the park.

Here a post I wrote about this:


Permits I usually get them a month before, and yes, when I plan weddings I take care of it.  However, when officiating the wedding I expect the couple to take care of it. 

Don’t worry.  The permit process is very smooth, also it is only needed if you have more than 20 people.

I have married dozens of amazing couples in central park and had no issues. When in doubt, just consult your planner or officiant.

Have ushers close off the area to make sure you do not have to deal with random tourists getting in the way or walking back and forth in front of the ceremony and therefore probably making it difficult to take picture of you! Make sure everyone has a map of where the location is. There will always be a few people who think they know where so and so location is, but because of the winding roads in Central Park is better to provide a map. Creating a DIY map is always crafty with a person’s phone number (one of the ushers, etc) to take calls from people who are lost. Your wedding planner should be doing the rest and make sure the wedding planner is separate from the officiant because you’ll need someone else who must handle the wedding and answer questions, direct other vendors etc. Best of luck and enjoy!
