I was very involved in planning my sister's wedding. We had a hard time decideing on a venue. There are so many places and you don't want to choose the wrong one. We had looked at a few and still weren't satisfied. A friend recommended, Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens, to me. It is beautiful there but I wasn't so sure about having a wedding there. I was wrong!! It was the perfect place. It is so beautiful there, year round. Buffalo can be very cold in the winter. Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens is even beautiful in the winter. It's warm and you can enjoy many different kinds of flowers all year. It was easy to book. we brought in our own caterers. I have heard that they have changed that and know they have certain caterer's you have to choose from. That was nice because alot of places in Buffalo, the two come together. It was absolutly the perfect place for pictures. The do have a guest limit for formal sit down dinners, the maximum capacity is 100 guests. If you are planning they are very flexable with everything else. Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens is a beautiful place to have a wedding party. It really is picture perfect!
