The Ultimate Venue Guide


The Bronx Zoo  

Low-Maintenance Altruists

The Bronx Zoo
The city’s biggest zoo is also the cheapest when it comes to weddings. Exchange vows at Astor Court, then take the party over to the stately Schiff Family Great Hall, which grants access to the zoo’s “Madagascar!” exhibit. Site fees start at $3,500, with catering from $75 a head. Proceeds benefit the Wildlife Conservation Society. Bronx River Pkwy. at Fordham Rd., Bronx; 718-741-3836; bronx zoo.com


Housing Works Bookstore Café  

Housing Works Bookstore Café
The bookshop may seem like an unlikely setting for a reception, but string up some twinkling lights and you’ve got yourself a homey Soho hideaway. The store, which offers favorable rates for evening events, serves as home base to The Works, a farm-to-table catering company. All-inclusive packages range from $135 to $200 per person, with proceeds benefiting health-care and social services for New Yorkers living with AIDS and HIV. 126 Crosby St., nr. Houston St.; 212-780-1942; housingworks.org/theworks
