You could think about doing something elegant, but outside the city… there are a lot of nice places in NJ, Westchester, etc. that are elegant but more affordable… although it seems clear that you love NY.

Having researched and rejected NYC b/c of budget, I’m skeptical about swinging a $12,000 wedding in Central Park Boathouse – once you’ve committed to the fancy venue, you start feeling like you have to match it with elegant flowers, the perfect dress, etc.

Although a $10,000 budget seems like it might be high for you, here’s a knot article on a $10,000 NYC "budget" wedding. This might help with your estimates and stuff.


Good luck!

Hi ilovenycmissie,

I can feel for your pain! I live in NY too (currently in Long Island) and understand how expensive things are. Do you live right in NYC? I know A LOT of venues all over NY and many places nowadays can help to accommodate within your budget. Have you thought about venturing out to Brooklyn/Bronx/Queens?
If you want feel free to PM me.
