Queens Wedding Venues
Queens, New York—home of the infamous Mets—is one of the five boroughs of New York City, the easternmost and the largest in the area, and has a melting pot’s worth of populations and cultures adding to its already vast entity.
Most known for the wide-variety of experiences it leaves folks with on a daily basis, you and your guests can explore food from every corner of the earth, all within the confines of one single borough; discover art with no limitations in the Queens Museum, the Queens Theatre, and at Socrates Sculpture Park, among other destinations; and take on the extraordinary nightlife filled with eclectic bars and comedy clubs lighting up the city each night.
Conveniently so, the most optimal bit about Queens is that everything is but a subway ride away.
Finally, one of the most common areas to wed in the city is the Victorian Wedding Garden, a staple at the Queens Botanical Garden where couples often choose to exchange vows. Wedding receptions in Queens can take place in sleek ballrooms, a rooftop hotel, at a zoo, or even at the famed Citi Field!
Wedding Venue Prices in Queens
Spring and autumn can be a rather unpredictable season when it comes to weather, sometimes chilly and other times very warm; summers are often hot, humid and wet; and, like clockwork, snowfall always begins in December. As a result, Queens wedding venues tend to skew indoors due to the many ups and downs in NYC’s climate.
Peak wedding season in Queens is typically May, June, September and October, where fares tend to run the highest and can range from $6,700 to $11,500 depending on the day of your wedding. On the other hand, the same venue during off-peak season runs about $6,300 to $9,500. Note that these fees do not include the price per person for food and beverages for approximately 125 guests ($150/plate) or gratuity and sales tax. Finally, this fee does not include chairs, linens, entertainment and decorations.
