  • We had the most unfortunate experience with the New York Botanical Gardens as a potential wedding venue. We very much liked the venue and were basically ready to sign with them. The reasons we ultimately decided not to were 1) our contact there, Kristal, was unresponsive and unaccommodating. We expected, at a minimum, to get prompt responses to emails (e.g., not wait 5 days between responses) and for her to make herself available for calls at times when a couple with full time jobs might be available (like after 4PM or on a weekend); 2) worse, Kristal insisted we pay a non-refundable deposit before even seeing what the contract would look like. That is not standard and we felt it was manipulative. Overall, we felt like Kristal was trying to dissuade us from getting married at the NYBG, and she succeeded.

    Dear Ni Sh, thank you for sharing your feedback. We apologize that your experience at our venue didn’t match your expectations. We’d like to learn more about your specific situation. If you wouldn’t mind giving our Director of Catering a call at 646-741-1400 at your earliest convenience, it would be greatly appreciated. Again, we set a high standard for ourselves, and we’re so sorry to hear this was not met in your interactions with our business. We look forward to speaking to you.
