I recently got engaged and Fiance and I are currently in NYC but originally from the west coast. We’re looking to have a wedding in NYC but our budget is $50k, which we initially thought was a healthy budget, but we were SHOCKED to find out that it doesn’t get us very far in NYC!!
I’ve done my due diligence and have read many many older posts, and I know that there are many bees out there who have been successful with smaller budgets… but our current guest list is around 120-150 and we would prefer to have our wedding in Manhattan since that’s where Fiance and I met.
The only places outside of Manhattan we’re considering are the Bronx and Brooklyn botanical gardens. Other venues that we’re considering within our budget are Manhattan Penthouse on 5th, Sunset Terrace, Houston Hall, and 3 West Club.
We had a few quick questions:
- Are there any other venues that you guys can suggest? We’re ok doing ceremony and reception at the same place or different places.
- Do you guys have any personal experiences with these venues? The reviews we’ve read have generally been great but I want the Bee Seal of Approval
- A lot of our guests will be coming from out of town; would they be disappointed with a “NYC Wedding” without a city/skyline view?
FYI, Fiance and I aren’t much of the DIY type… so we need to factor in standard NYC deco prices in our budget too.
Please help us, bees!! Thanks!
