Semi-affordable Brooklyn Venue List, or places we’re thinking about getting married:
Green Building on Union (450 Union)
- Emailed, visited, reviewed. Still in the running, though we’d have to do a Sunday event.
DUMBO Arts Center (DAC)
- Emailed them about dates. They got back to me in a reasonable amount of time, rates are reasonable, location is great. Alas, there is no Air Conditioning, and only staff is permitted to touch the windows. My guy is a hot mess in the summertime. This was a deal-breaker for us.
The DUMBO Loft
- Emailed, visited, reviewed.
The Brooklyn Lyceum
- Checked out their website, emailed a general inquiry with a whole bunch of questions. The guy who got back to me simply sent me to the website, did not address any of my questions. Uninformative and off-putting. Another friend who contacted the Lyceum regarding space rental had a similar experience. Her take was, “that guy is not interested in helping anyone.” A shame, because they have some great spaces.
