Move aside hotel ballroom, a growing trend is for couples to get married in more unique and unusual spaces. The public library is one such space; imagine the intrigue of your guests seeing a library venue on your wedding invitation.

A library locale can offer splendid architecture, magnificent interiors, and many also have great gardens or courtyards (think photo op!)
One bride who got married in the Boston Public Library courtyard last fall commented “It feels like you’re being married in a fairy tale, [a] dream location, an oasis in the middle of a bustling city.” The courtyard backdrop for this bride’s wedding featured a luscious garden walkway, a fountain and a bronze cast statue. Pretty spectacular stuff.
During peak wedding season, the Boston public library often hosts two or more weddings per weekend, and the 24 weddings held in fiscal year 2010 more than doubled to 54 booked in fiscal 2011.
Governed by a board of trustees, the public library does not allow weddings without restrictions. So if you have your heart set on balloons, candles or fog machines, don’t bother calling the Boston public library. But if you want a distinctive setting for your elegant wedding celebration, it’s a guaranteed beautiful and memorable choice.
