Wedding Venue Cost: The Palm House at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Situated inside the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, The Palm House is one of the most sought-after wedding venues in New York City. Charles Sally Charles, the exclusive caterer there, is also top notch. As a result, it should come as no surprise that it’s also very expensive. Here is what the cost breakdown looks like for The Palm House:

The Main Point

Keep in mind, this price quote is for November, which is considered off-season! Expect peak spring and summer time to be much higher. Having said that, when I contacted them, November 9, 2013 was the first available Saturday evening they had! All the popular dates had already been booked over a year in advance so people are definitely willing to pay up for The Palm House. They did have several Saturday afternoon slots available, however, and plenty of Friday/Sunday availabilities. In addition, the pricing is slightly cheaper for those times. Of course, there are disadvantages as well . . . so keep an eye out for my future posts about The Palm House.
