But some of these vendors are rated so highly, that we just had to bring them to your attention. Check out the highest-rated wedding venues in New York City below, and click through to see what real brides have to say.

Manhattan Penthouse & Alger House
The city-chic Manhattan Penthouse stands on famed Fifth Avenue, conjuring up images of Breakfast at Tiffany's and old-school New York City glamour in a trendy loft space that features a ballroom, grand piano, beautiful oak floors, and giant windows offering panoramic Manhattan views. The venue's other location, Alger House (a 1906 converted carriage house), is a more intimate space with an antique aura — full of unique artifacts, chandeliers, sky lights, and stained glass. Both are breathtakingly beautiful and unmistakably New York. Read real brides' reviews here!

Liberty House
If you're looking for a city view when saying "I do," then check out the stellar sights seen from Liberty House. With a dazzling view of the Manhattan skyline from its wrap-around terrace and the dramatic floor to ceiling windows in their grand ballroom, Liberty House is a dream come true for Big Apple brides: "Our guests were blown away by the Liberty House. The location is out of this world and the food is plentiful and delicious. Several guests have said our wedding was the best one they have ever attended, in large part due to the outstanding quality of the Liberty House!" Read real brides' reviews here!

Stroudsmoor Country Inn
Stroudsmoor Country Inn is only an hour outside of the city, but with all its country-chic elements, breathtaking views, and old world charm, it seems worlds away. This sprawling property boasts several ceremony and reception location options (including a stone castle, a rustic chapel overlooking the Cherry Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, a restored barn in the lush surrounding forest, and a stately, elegant mansion), all looking like something straight out of a fairytale. Plus, Stroudsmoor offers all essential wedding services "under one roof" — such as photography, event planning, registry coordinators, floral designers, and bridal hair and makeup artists — for an unbelievably stress-free wedding day.

The Yale Club of New York City
This 22-story historical collegiate clubhouse, with its neoclassical and timeless design, is the picture-perfect venue for nuptials dripping with understated elegance. And their luxurious rooms and amenities for out-of-town-guests, in-house catering and wedding cake designers, and post-wedding brunch and rehearsal dinner spaces, make for some very blissful brides: "The most magical day! My husband and I still can't get over how phenomenal our wedding was at the Yale Club. For our 1920's themed wedding, I think our guests truly felt like they were at a Gatsby party! We are so happy that we got to celebrate our marriage at the Yale Club and our guests were so happy too — everyone had smiles on their faces the entire time! It was such a treat to experience!"

Brooklyn Winery
This warm, romantic space is actually a fully-functioning winery, so Brooklyn brides can sip on house-made wine at their rustic reception. Featuring barn wood walls, vintage 1940's wallpaper, and midcentury adornments, the space's candlelit glow is soft and inviting, making the floor-to-ceiling barrels of aging wine a magical backdrop for your "I do's."
