If you have watched all of the episodes of Sex and the City, then you have seen a few different takes on a wedding in New York City. You have seen Charlotte’s first wedding, the Scottish, Mcdougall wedding that featured a beautiful wedding gown, Scottish kilts, and bagpipes. You also saw Miranda’s modest wedding in Central Park. Finally, you saw Charlotte’s second wedding, a Jewish wedding, during which everything that could go wrong went wrong.
Each of these weddings packs a certain amount of New Your City flare that you may not for a wedding in Charlottesville, Virginia or Raleigh, North Carolina. Whether you are saying your vows in Manhattan, Queens, or looking into an outdoor wedding venue up-state, you should try to add some special New York style to make your wedding unique. This does not mean that you need to go after the Park Avenue type wedding that we saw in Charlotte’s first marriage, but a unique venue or a New York designer’s dress can go a long way to making your day even more special.
It can be difficult to come up with a unique characteristic to add to your wedding to make it memorable, which is why you should hire a New York City wedding planner to help you out. The wedding planners in New York specialize in making your wedding as memorable and unique as possible. They have seen everything from an entire “I Love New York” themed wedding to a wedding in Central Park in which a squirrel got the first piece of cake. Furthermore, wedding planners are aware of all of the particular places in the city that have been featured in movies and TV shows. If you are a fan of Friends, Maid in Manhattan, or even The Mindy Project, then the right wedding planner will help you find the romantic venues from these excellent productions.
As far as the cost of a New York wedding goes, there is a wide range. If you want to have a dress from Kleinfeld’s, get married in Manhattan, and invite 100 people, then it is likely that you will be spending more money than you would for a modest wedding with a dress from David’s Bridal, a public venue like Central Park, and a guest list of 30 or fewer people. If you are trying to stick to a pretty strict budget, then your wedding planner will be able to help you come up with ways to save on your wedding. Some of the common suggestions include shopping it Kleinfeld’s sample sale, narrowing down your guest list to include only your closest friends and family, having a brunch wedding on a Sunday rather than an evening wedding on a Saturday, and choosing a venue outside of Manhattan.
Each bride is different, and you may have some ideas entirely distinct from any other bride before you, but if you want to add some New York flair to your wedding, it is always to check some references and it is ideal best to hire a wedding planner to make the day go as smoothly as possible.
