This is a mixed review because we had some significant issues with FBBG, but they did get resolved. My advice, make sure you get EVERYONE's contact information when you do your booking because the person we went through was let go and there went our contract too. FBBG was able to honor some arrangements and they did come through and help us with the rest of our issues, and everything turned out great. We had our ceremony at the gardens in September and it turned out to be a lovely sunny day! We were able to take pictures all around the gardens which was perfect and our guests loved it. It isn't the most cost-effective place to have a ceremony, especially if you have a lot of guests and need to have chairs. However, if you want to have a place with fantastic pictures, this is it.

Boerner gardens is a beautiful place for a wedding any time of year and so many great picture spots. we did our first look on the bog walk and met in the middle it was very romantic. They have lots of sights to chose from and the hardest part was deciding which spot to pick to have the ceremony. It was very easy to work with the Milwaukee county park system people. thank you.

I know that Boerner's contract with the current caterer (Bartolotta's) is ending at the end of this year, and so everything will change with the new catering group's contact. I would investigate if you are thinking about reserving them for a wedding in 2014 or after. However, that being said, it's a wonderful place to have a wedding.

We had our ceremony and reception at the gardens for our September wedding. Everything was amazing. The gardens looked great, and there were so many great spots for pictures. We lucked out and the weather was perfect (it stormed the following 2 days). We worked with Alyson who was amazing and made sure everything ran smoothly, and took care of any issues or problems we had. She was great at giving us ideas and suggestions to help create our vision and giving us alternative options to make sure everything fit within our budget.

We used Boerner Botanical Gardens for our wedding ceremony and we LOVED our ceremony! We got married on the Shrub Mall Lawn and it was incredibly picturesque. Mike at the gardens was incredibly helpful and the staff was super accommodating to us and our families. They were a pleasure to work with . And because the gardens are county owned, its an excellent deal. We would recommend them to anyone!

The value of this wedding venue was amazing. We were able to save a lot of money having our ceremony and reception both at Boerner. Our ceremony was beautiful in the gardens behind the main center and the larger ballroom was perfect. Rachel coordinated every detail including all of the catering with Bartolotta Catering. Everything was delicious. Only a couple of minor hiccups, there was a large circle planting area that was bare with dirt - that wasn't planted between the ballroom and the ceremony site - would have been nice to have flowers planted there. Looked awkward. And there were supposed to be outdoor highboys so people could enjoy their beverages outside. But over all it was a great day.
