I’m having a city hall wedding, although we are not renting out that balcony space as that couple did, we are simply having a regular civil ceremony. To rent the 4th floor balcony costs $500/ hr, or $1000/hr to rent the rotunda. If that’s the way you want to do it, you’ll want to factor that into your budget, since to have more than 6 guests you’ll need to rent the space.

Oh wow, it’s gorgeous! And you can go for a really sophisticated or more simple reception, looks like the venue suits both styles.

And those favors… too cute!

Definitely worth “considering”! Wink

It’s only $75 if you book the 1/2 hour time slot for a traditional civil ceremony like we’re doing 😉

City hall is so gorgeous, but Lake Tahoe would be too! Good luck with your decision!

It was always my dream to get married at San Francisco City Hall. I think it is just beautiful! However, that could be because I am a political junkie and admirer of that type of architecture. I have to say, ceremonies on the stairs under the rotunda are gorgeous! I walked by a coulple who just got married taking pictures there. It is expensive but amazing! I also love Tahoe- especially yrh Calneva resort and the various golf courses. Tahoe is great for outdoor weddings. Sigh.. I wish my SO would be interested in a City Hall wedding- he wants Vegas!

I vote for the Bay!  Keep it local so more people can come. (Hive, I’m biased, I work with 91011Bride… she’s my boss.  And I think more people will come if she keeps it local)

And yea, if City Hall was open on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day, I’d totally get married there.  I know they have a package for Saturday weddings and other type of events, but it’s super expensive.  It would cost me like $10,000, just for the venue location.  Our budget is no more than $10,000.  We’re parents, I’m a law student and he’s working on his computer science degree.  We’re also extremely frugal, so, City Hall is only an option if we don’t go for the New Year’s theme.  I have time to plan.  No worries.
