I absolutely fell in love with the wedding packages from Central Park; especially since they are so customizable and the coordinators have been so helpful in planning--humoring me now even though the big day is more than a year and a half away!
I was considering the picnic reception, but can't find any pictures online or descriptions from anyone that went that route. Any tips/gripes/praise?
Also, I have several elderly guests, so I don't think the no-chair policy in the park will work for us for a reception. It will be in September, which is fickle NY weather, giving us anything from frost to lingering summer haze, so indoors would probably be best. Does anyone know of a restaurant within walking (or short cab distance) of the park (in any direction, we haven't chosen a spot in the park yet) that accommodates the following:
- No need for a dance floor
- Visually appealing enough that no decorations are needed
- Buffet or a very varied menu (we have a lot of dietary requirements)
- No need for alcohol
- Fits 45-50 people
- Hopefully costs no more than $30 per person (the lower the better!)
