New York is also known as the city of dreams and many brides do dream about getting married here! So, take a look at how to plan an exceptional wedding in New York City!
New York ranks fourth out of 51 states in its number of weddings, performing over 137,000 weddings in 2019. Today, we’ll give you some tips on how to plan an exceptional wedding in New York City.
It is a popular wedding destination for so many reasons, and being one of the greatest cities in the world is just one. New York City boasts so many places to hold a wedding ceremony, from sparse industrial spaces to lush outdoor parks, and it’s difficult to narrow down where you would like to exchange your vows.
One thing is sure though: each wedding that is performed in NYC is unique, and it’s not that difficult to plan one of the most unforgettable moments in your life.
Select A Unique Venue
NYC has loads of fantastic venues that you can choose from that will make your wedding unique. Fancy a wedding in Central Park, the New York Public Library or a cruise on the Hudson River?
If you’re a history buff, you can also arrange for your vows to be exchanged at the American Museum of National History. Note that if you’re choosing a venue that’s a public place, you might have to work your way around timings, since there are plenty of people in the area and you might not get a good photo op.
It’s also vital to include the pandemic regulations in selecting your wedding site. For example, mass gatherings might still be banned, and even if the ban is lifted, you must be flexible enough to plan or reduce the number of guests you can invite to comply with the rules.
Flexibility is vital in planning a wedding in NYC, from setting dates to changing reception venues.
Plan A Memorable Reception
If your wedding is held at an iconic venue, make sure that you offer a memorable menu at your reception.
A wedding at Central Park Zoo can feature vibrant colors and enticing entrée options. After a City Hall wedding, there is a plethora of restaurants that propose international menus if you have a diverse group of guests or if you have just flown in for your wedding.
It also goes without saying that you can transform your wedding venue to suit your personal style, even if it is held in a public space or a quintessential spot.
As long as it’s allowed by state or local ordinances, you can throw down an aisle rug and deck the assigned area with flowers for a wedding that is truly memorable. You can make any space work for you: the most important thing is that you’re getting married!
Getting hitched in NYC is a dreamy option for many couples and their guests. The city that never sleeps offers many possibilities for venues, not to mention the magical spirit of the metropolis that radiates from any event.
And lastly, if your dream wedding has always been in nature, don’t worry! The State of New York is amazing and won’t disappoint you.
