central park

Hi,
we are thinking about Central Park, NYC for our wedding, just wondering if anyone has any advice? Any problems with permits or transport within Central Park that we should be aware of?
Thanks

Oh...I am soo envious of you...it has always been a dream of mine to get married in Central Park...I know a girl who got married at Tavern on the Green...and she said it was really easy planning..you might want to contact them ...or contact park services.

I was just looking through old posts and found this.
One of the big problems with getting married in the park is people walking in front of/through your wedding. If you're not married already I would make sure you contact the park and ask about barricades or reserving a portion of sheeps meadow or something. Otherwise call Boathouse or Tavern on the Green. You just don't want uninvited guests!

Otherwise I would think about having things in the actual locations of the park that can be quartered off such as
the zoo http://www.centralpark.com/pages/central-park-zoo.html
Belvedere Castle
http://www.centralpark.com/pages/attractions/belvedere-castle.html
Delacorte theater
http://www.centralpark.com/pages/attractions/delacorte-theatre.html
etc etc

Most people choose the Bethesda fountain which is a quick way to get frustrated with other New Yorkers.

When I've helped to plan events in the park we had to contact park services with a proposal, pay a fee and talk about the policy of clean-up, etc. Its pretty easy and the application can be done online I think.

Hi! We're planning to get married in Central Park this Christmas... I know it will be freezing cold, but as we're Norwegian Vikings (haha!) I guess we'll manage... We're eloping, so it will just be the two of us + our reverend and photographer...!

We're thinking about the Ladies Pavilion, but any other suggestions from you guys will be really helpful :)
