The costs of the Rainbow Room, as with any venue, will depend on the time of year, the day of the week, your guest count and overall package inclusions.  While the pricing estimates, when researching online and in person were quite limited, we did find out that the average price per person tends to be in the $300 to $425 per person range, with Saturday evening, as with any venue, being the highest in demand.

Martha Stewart Weddings states the wedding rates per person for five hours with passed champagne, hors-d’oeuvres, a premium bar, three-course dinner, Sylvia Weinstock wedding cake, and petits fours with coffee service can start at $400 per person.

The ceremony site fee, according to WeddingWire.com, ranges anywhere from $11,500 to $12,500, depending on the time of the year, whereas the reception site fee can be within the same range.

Tips to know

The venue highly recommends you book at least 12 months in advance, especially if you’re looking for a weekend date.

Guest minimums are said to be 150, while the venue can accommodate up to 250 guests with dancing or 300 without the dance floor.

Inside the room includes the one-of-a-kind rotating dance floor and windows dripping with 1,200 crystals.  Pull back the curtains and you’re able to view the entire city skyline and much of what New York City has to offer with its unique 360-degree viewing setup.

You can view a sample wedding menu via the official venue website by clicking here.  Via that brochure, you can also see a list of the “preferred vendors” you can work with, ranging from floral design to entertainment.  If you wanted to use any other vendor not on the list, then it would require advanced approval by the venue.
