The Boston Public Library is a gorgeous venue for private events and weddings.

Their historic Guastavino Room at the Central Library in Copley Square features a gorgeous fireplace with rows of books elevated above the floor -- a truly stunning space for an array of events.

So, if you've ever dreamed of getting married inside this venue, but couldn't afford the often hefty price tag, a new announcement from the library and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu could be what you're looking for. In a move to accommodate intimate ceremonies and a variety of budgets, the library will now offer one-hour, $200 weddings.

Yes, it means a speedy ceremony but it gets you access to a beautiful location for an incredibly reasonable price.

“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," a statement from library president David Leonard says. "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.” 

Access? Yes. Time? Not really.

These $200 weddings get you a one-hour ceremony for the couple and up to eight guests followed by a quick photo session in the Guastavino Room. And these ceremonies can only be booked for the first Monday of each month, starting on June 6.

If this all still appeals to you (and for many it absolutely will), you can book your big day up to 90 days before the ceremony here. Availability is first-come, first-serve, so don't wait too long to check it out.
