Hey NYC bees–I’d really love to see your venues and hear about the general ‘feel’ you’re going for with your wedding. I admit that this post is a bit self-serving, as I *think* I’ve found my venue but just want to make sure I’m not missing any gems, but also I just love to see venues in general and hear about how ladies plan to transform the space and make it their own! I think this is especially neat in a place like NYC, where there’s so much variety in just a few miles of land.
Also, since I’ve readily admitted that this post is a bit self-serving, if you want to post the cost of your venue and what that includes, that’d be super-awesome as well …

I’m having mine at The W Union Square…I think I saw like 15 spots in the city though so it was a hard decision..here is some pics! We like the grand ballroom feel but the think we like about The W was it was more modern..no ugly carpets or anything!
Where are you having yours?!

we’re getting married at Tribeca Rooftop. I love it. It has a beautiful skylight, exposed brick an awesome rooftop for cocktail hour (or ceremony but we are doing that under the skylight), it was big enough for our large-ish group of 275, high ceilings, modern clean feel.

We’re getting married at the Central Park Boathouse. We’re going for a “formal garden party” feel–classy, elegant, romantic, and formal. We’re having (hopefully!) 165-75 people, although our guest list is now near 200–eek.
We love Central Park, we ideally would have gotten married outside, so this is a good compromise–the room has floor to ceiling windows, so it feels like being outside.
@marlie–we looked at Tribeca Rooftop. So pretty, and so glam!

Guastavino’s… http://www.guastavinos.com... 200-250 people. Originally was looking at Tribeca Rooftop and Chelsea Piers, but Guastavino’s had the best deal and we didn’t know anyone who got married there before.

We’re getting married at Battery Gardens. I had my heart set on something “different”. We looked at lots of interesting places, like Galapagos Art Space and Bubby’s in DUMBO, as well as a variety of places in Manhattan. We’re going for a fun-filled, glitzy rock and roll throwdown.

I sooo wanted to consider the Boathouse or Tribeca Rooftops, but I didn’t mean their minimums for a Saturday in terms of guest count…and my church doesn’t marry couples on Friday so we had to do a Saturday….love both those places though!

@lauren810c: we’re doing a Friday night at the Boathouse. Not so much because of the person minimum, but because of the price per person. We’re saving a significant amount by having it on a Friday, and luckily we found a rabbi who would be willing to officiate for us.
It’s actually funny, orginally I thought that there’s no way we would have made a 165 per persone minimum anyway (which is what the Boathouse’s is on a Saturday), but here we are with a guest list at over 200!

We are getting married at Pier 60 Chelsea Piers. We loved the background of water and two walls of windows (who knew the Hudson could be romantic?)
Also the parking lot was a huge plus for guests coming in from Staten Island.

We are having ceremony/reception at Studio 450. ILOVEIT! It was the place that when I would daydream about the wedding it would always be there, you know? hahaha.
