I guess the biggest question would be what is your budget. Also do you prefer to get married in the outer boroughs of New York City or in the NYC area. That would narrow down your list. In brooklyn which is where I am from the is always Prospect Park which has the Proscpect Park Picnic House and they are pretty reasonable. In the Manhattan or other areas it may be as simple as getting a park permit and then finding a venue close by. But like I said in the beginnging it all depends on your budget. I would love to help you some more so please reply.

@Miss Whitehouse:  Definitely look at the Queens Farm Museum or the Queens Botanical Gardens.  My friend had her ceremony at the Gardens and it was gorgeous and $300.  The reception is going to be the tricky part, since there is not much in the area – she ended up having it in Forest Hills, where there are more restaurants for venues.

@Miss Whitehouse: In All NYC and Outer Borough Parks there is a $25 Special Events Permit needed to have any event that there will be over 20 people. In Manhattan tables and chairs are only permitted with special written consent. In the outer boroughs such as Brooklyn you are able to bring your own tables and chairs. The permit will give you access to a certain predetermined area of the park that you request and they will block off that area. If you need any further assistance please don’t hesitate to ask I am a planner so I know that it can be difficult to plan from so far away. The 5k budget is not that bad for a venue and other things I love creating things on a low budget that can be beautiful.

Check out Rebar in Brooklyn for the reception!  For outdoor spaces, Prospect Park is lovely.  🙂

You can rent park picnic pavillions too like in prospect park and not too much $. Rebar is a neat place for a wedding, but my friend got married there a few months ago and it is way beyond $5000 for the number of guests she’s looking for.  Good luck!
