BOSTON — Looking to get married for $200? You may have to whisper your vows.
The Boston Public Library announced Monday it will start offering one-hour, $200 wedding ceremonies starting June 6. That price tag gets couples a ceremony with up to eight guests inside the historic Guastavino Room at the Central Library in Copley Square.
Couples may bring an officiant and photographer, but food and beverage service, live music and additional furniture or decorations are not permitted.
“Our Boston Public Libraries are some of Boston’s most treasured spaces, and many a bride or groom have dreamed about celebrating their wedding day at the Central Library in Copley Square,” Mayor Michelle Wu said in a statement. “This new program offering one-hour wedding celebrations in the Guastavino room at the library will provide another beautiful, intimate, affordable option for couples in Boston to celebrate their weddings in one of the most breathtaking spaces in our city. Thank you to our team at BPL for continuing to find ways to make their programs and services accessible to all Boston residents.”
Ceremonies will be offered on the first Monday of each month. Accommodations will be made for Monday holidays.
The registration period began May 1. Bookings will be accepted within a 90-day window of the ceremony date. All couples must submit their registration online. Availability is based on a first-come, first-serve basis.
“We are excited to have this opportunity to offer couples wanting an intimate ceremony a chance to have the Boston Public Library become a special part of their life together,” David Leonard, president of the Boston Public Library, said. “The McKim Building has always been the ‘palace for the people,’ and we are excited to be able to make it available to couples that might not otherwise have access to this space.”
