Brooklyn offers everything Manhattan has, no matter the size of your guest list, or taste.

Join the hipsters and claim your own cool venue in Williamsburg at Mymoon or The Brooklyn Winery. Take in spectacular skyline views at Steiner Studios or the Liberty Warehouse.

Go gothic glam at One Hanson Place – the bank vault in the basement is not to be missed! Plan for a chic loft style wedding at the Green Building, amongst open raw space – my suggestion: hire gourmet food trucks to keep your guests on their toes.

For the classic luxe wedding, check out either the Brooklyn Museum or Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. Or if you’re the edgy type, get married on stage at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Love Central Park, but not the hassle? Then the Boathouse at Prospect Park is perfect for a romantic bride.

Plus, lots of restaurants with backyards likely would love to host your affair, so don’t underestimate your favorite brunch spot to make for a perfect, intimate wedding or rehearsal spot. I personally love the courtyard at Roberta’s in Bushwick; the food rivals Manhattan’s top restaurants.

Bonus: wherever you are, there’s a killer bar around the corner for your afterparty.
