Whether you are looking for fabulous NY wedding venues for a destination wedding in the Big Apple, or you are a New Yorker who is hungry for some unique NY wedding venues to check out, read on – especially if you are considering a theme wedding.

Here are four unique NY wedding venues and four themes that are the perfect fit:

Library Hotel for a Library Themed Wedding


A few weeks ago I blogged about a couple who had a library themed wedding. (Check out the library slip invitations!) New York’s Library Hotel would be the perfect spot for a library themed wedding. The Library Hotel in New York City is the first hotel ever to offer its guest over 6,000 volumes of books organized throughout the hotel by the Dewey Decimal System.* Each of the 10 guestroom floors honor one of the 10 categories of the DDC and each of the 60 rooms are uniquely adorned with a collection of books and art exploring a distinctive topic within the category it belongs to.

The Gallery Bar for an Art Themed Wedding

Are you and your sweetie artsy types? Consider an intimate wedding with an art theme at The Gallery Bar! This venue, which is both a bar and a contemporary exhibition space for artists, has two levels for private events.

Merchants House Wedding for a Romantic Tea Party Wedding

Why not have a romantic tea party wedding at the Merchants House Museum? The Merchant’s House Museum is New York City’s only family home preserved intact – inside and out – from the 19th century. Built in 1832 just steps from Washington Square, this elegant red-brick and white-marble row house on East Fourth Street was home to a prosperous merchant family for almost 100 years. You can have your elegant tea party in the house or in the garden.



The Old Stone House for an Historical Themed Wedding

Love history? Have an historical themed wedding at The Old Stone House. The lovely Great Room on the 2nd floor has pale yellow walls, an open timbered ceiling and excellent acoustics.  The first floor gallery commemorates the Revolutionary War’s Battle of Brooklyn and is included in rentals during non-public hours.
