Wedding Wednesday: The Pierre, New York City
Hosting a wedding on a near weekly basis, The Pierre has extensive experience with nuptials. The iconic hotel offers six lavish venues for the ceremony and reception -- including the beautiful Salon, complete with rotunda and trompe de l’oeil paintings. It's no wonder that celebs such as actress Mary Tyler Moore, journalist Barbara Walters, and reality star Ramona Singer have said "I do" at the hotel. Offering a taste of classic New York grandeur, The Pierre boasts top-notch accommodations and exceptional white-glove service, so be prepared -- weddings at The Pierre do not come cheap.
Thankfully, inspiration comes free. Indoor wedding venues, such as The Pierre, are often expensive, but couples can tie the knot in certain areas of Central Park -- right across the street from the hotel -- for a lot less. Or if you don't want to risk the possibility of rain on your big day, have a friend take cute photos of you and your honey in the park for your "Save the Date" notes; this will save you some cash so you can splurge on a ceremony at The Pierre. After all, few hotels in New York City have more experience -- or more class -- than the gorgeous neo-Georgian hotel. See more wedding-inspired photos of The Pierre here »
