Not allowed in Central Park
Chairs, tents, tables, rugs, runners, throwing of rice, birdseed, flowers, confetti, or anything else that will affect the soil is not allowed in Central Park. There are exceptions to the use of chairs for those who cannot stand for long periods of time. Alcohol, candles, or amplified sound are not allowed. Acoustic music is permitted.
Planning your own ceremony?
One of the most popular locations, the Conservatory Garden, located at Fifth Avenue and 105th Street requires a permit for ceremonies and photography sessions. You can apply for your permit for the Conservatory Garden at the Central Park Conservancy by calling 212-360-2766 or you can download the application online. For any other location in Central Park, you can download the application from the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation's website. The maximum number of guests allowed for a ceremony in Central Park is 300. Each location has a specific guest limit. If you plan to have less than 20 people at your wedding ceremony in a location outside of the Conservatory Garden, you are not required to purchase a permit. However, we highly recommend getting a permit to guarantee your space. You can also find more information in our Ceremonies, Proposals, Receptions and Wedding FAQs sections.
