Rockefeller Center Tree Weddings - crunch in a fishbowl

It's holiday time -- and lots and lots of people have asked about being married in front of the tree in Rockefeller Center. Just a note for people from out of town: It's crowded, it's crazy, it's loud, the rink is loud, there's no space, and the endless lines for the Rockettes snake up around the corner, and there's no place to stand, and probably, fuggedaboutit! (though we will be happy to marry you there if you really really want it) - but Times Square is less crowded than Rockefeller Center at this time.

Consider: Central park, Bryant park, Battery Park, Madison Park, in front of the Lincoln Center tree (ok, maybe next year after they've finished construction), or Top of the Rock, a carriage in the park, almost anywhere but THE TREE. Then go have your picture taken in front of THE TREE - if you can get close to it in the crush! Merry Christmas! Jingle jingle!
