Autumn in New York City is a dream trip for many. An autumn wedding in New York City (or any big city for that matter) is an even bigger dream for some. A dream of a chic, classic and glamorous wedding day. Today we’re sharing big city inspired wedding details for your dream big city wedding day.
With a big city wedding, you can let your surroundings inspire your decor. Keep it simple with classic and timeless details – a bold font for your invitations and signage, a crisp, white streamlined gown for the bride and classic black tuxedos for the men. There is a reason it’s called “classic!”
A Timeless Palette
Cities are synonymous with bright lights and lots of color. Keep your palette clean and timeless with black, white, gray and one other pop of color – like taxi cab yellow. That way you can wrangle in your decor ideas with a simple palette that shows off the elegance of your big day.
Include the Architecture
One of the most exciting aspects of a big city inspired wedding is the architecture that surrounds you. Busy streets and endless rows of skyscrapers create the perfect background for photos of you and your new hubby. And let the buildings inspire other aspects of your wedding too – dedicate your centerpieces to your favorite landmarks in the city, and include your favorite buildings in your wedding stationery and signage. Bringing in the architecture will add extra personality to your already glam wedding day.
