How to find the ideal wedding venue in NYC?
Feeling a bit lost on how to find and pick the ideal wedding space? Worry less, because you’ve got Tagvenue! And we’ll be more than happy to share with you some tips on how to find the ideal wedding space in NYC based on your needs! So buckle up and start reading now!
Consider your budget - It's easy to get caught up in the excitement of planning a wedding and forget the most important thing: making sure you can afford it. But if you don't set a budget beforehand, there's no way of knowing what your expenses are, which means that you could end up spending more than what was originally budgeted for. The best way to make sure that doesn't happen is by creating a realistic budget based on the types of services and products available within your price range. What's great about setting a wedding budget is that it helps keep things on track—if something costs more than the allocated amount, then it shouldn't be purchased unless absolutely necessary. So make sure you get this done before doing anything else!
Draw up your guest list - You might think that this is something you can figure out later in the process, but it's actually really important that you know exactly how many people you’ll be inviting to your wedding. It'll help narrow down your search to venues that have the capacity that fits your guest list. That way, there won't be any surprises at the end of the day if your venue is too small or too big! If you know who will be attending, then you can start thinking about the type of atmosphere you want your wedding to have. Are there going to be a lot of kids running around? That might mean that you should consider a venue with lots of open space and windows so they can feel as comfortable as possible. Or perhaps half of the guests are over 60 years old and like to sit down for dinner after dancing all night long? In this case, a traditional banquet hall might work best.
Pick an accessible location - Many couples like to pick a location that is close to their home or family, but this isn't always possible. Consider where your guests will be coming from and how far they are willing to travel before making a decision on where to hold your wedding ceremony and reception. You want to make sure that your guests will be able to find the venue easily, and do your best to make sure that they'll be able to get back home safely after the festivities are over. If possible, book a venue close enough for them all to reach on foot or via public transit; if not, make sure there are plenty of taxis available at all times during the event.
Think of your wedding style - What kind of wedding do you want to have? Do you want something traditional and elegant? Or maybe something more modern? And what about the theme? What style are your decorations going to be? Do they need to match your dream venue? Once you've figured out what kind of wedding venue you want, it'll be easy to find one that fits the bill. For example: if your decor is going to be really ornate and traditional, try looking for a place with lots of history. Or if you’re planning to be on the more modern side, think about renting out an urban loft space with lots of character and personality.
Choose a few potential wedding dates - Having a few wedding dates will give you options. Just think about it: if you have two or three potential dates to choose from, then if one of them doesn't work out, you will still have the other two to choose from.
The cost of renting a wedding venue in New York City depends on a number of factors, including the location and size of the space you're looking to rent. But on average, expect to pay around $3000-$15000+ for a full buyout. The average cost for per person packages is $100-$350+, but it can be more or less depending on which package option you choose. (All data from Tagvenue.com.)
The average amount spent to organize a wedding in NYC is $42000. This figure takes into account all aspects of the event, including venue rental, catering, vendors, flowers and decorations, etc. But you can significantly reduce the costs by, for example, having your reception at an off-site location like a restaurant or hotel, which will lower the cost of catering and offer a space that's already set up. Or organize a wedding during the off-season when venues usually slash their rates and give discounts.
Of course! Here are some of our fav picks:
Mediterranean Townhome Rooftop at Casa Duende - Tucked away in the Lower East Side, Casa Duende offers 8,000 sq/ft of elegant space, spread over a cellar, three floors, and a 1,200 sq/ft rooftop. The venue blends Mediterranean sophistication with NYC charm, perfect for an unforgettable wedding. With easy subway access and ample parking, convenience is an added luxury.
The Loft & Roof Deck at 5th House Studios - Looking for something original? This vintage loft for sure will meet your needs! It offers a wood interior matched with custom art pieces that will enhance any intimate wedding experience.
If you're contemplating a civil marriage in NYC, you're probably wondering what it's going to cost and how long it will take. Well, it only costs $25! You can either go through the City Clerk's office or hire an attorney — which is totally optional. You don't have to have an attorney present, but if you do, they should be licensed in New York State. The whole process usually takes about 20 minutes (that's from start to finish!), though if there are any issues with paperwork or licenses, it could take up to a couple of hours. You can find more information on how to get married civilly here.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
