The entrance is over priced... I didn't see anything worthwhile besides the butterfly and orchid exhibit. The staff at the ticket booth was rude and unhelpful. I overpaid due to their inattentiveness.

Beautiful Gardens, the Butterfly exhibit is exquisite, everyone who works here is so helpful and seem to want to be there.

What You'll Get


A timeless wedding weaves the modern with the past, like when brides wear vintage gowns or when the cake is filled with rationed beans. Vow to live in the moment with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $20 for two tickets to the Garden Wedding Experience (a $50 value)
  • $29 for two VIP tickets to the Garden Wedding Experience (a $60 value), which include reserved seating at the fashion show, a special goody bag, and other perks

On Thursday, October 11, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., full-service caterers, photographers, florists, and other vendors descend upon the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden to spark a wedding extravaganza. Amid palm trees on the Garden House Lawn, guests sip sunset cocktails and sample bites from caterers, mingling and waiting for the headlining fashion show in the Bailey Palm Glade. There, a coral rock grotto and staircases winding around a lily pond host models as they flaunt bridal looks from Ella Bella Rozio, Bloomingdale's, and Hugo Boss. The night puts guests in touch with Fairchild's preferred vendors—including Bottega Grill, Lasso the Moon, Scratch Weddings, and Tony Gajate Photography—and also shows off the charm of the gardens themselves as a potential venue.

About Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden


Since 1938, the keepers of the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden have cultivated more than 85 acres of floral displays with a mixture of science and art. The gardens are lush with plants valuable to scientists and educators, and the tropical landscapes designed by William Lyman Phillips are like ever-evolving canvases, blooming and fading as the seasons change. Most of the palms, cycads, flowering trees, and vines were collected from the wild, but the grounds also harbor endangered plant species.

Guides give English and Spanish tram tours as well as walking tours through specific parts of the gardens, or visitors can explore the displays at their leisure, wandering through the 16,428-square foot two-level Tropical Plant Conservatory exhibit, which blooms with orchids, fruit trees, and rare palms. Cascading waterfalls punctuate the stream flowing through the 2-acre Richard H. Simons Rainforest, where visitors admire the diverse plant life and reflect on the worldwide threat of rapidly vanishing rainforests. The Wings of the Tropics exhibit features thousands of exotic butterflies with tropical fish and rare plant life. Butterflies are released twice daily and the Butterfly Metamorphosis Lab lets kids experience them up close. The water gardens combine tranquility pools with waterfalls, sculpture, and lily pads to evoke a sense of calm.
