New York Wedding - whatever the weather

You've decided to hold your special day in the greatest city in the world - New York. That's the easy part. Now you need to decide when. New York is incredibly special whatever the weather and choosing your date isn't as hard as you think. 

Let's start with the summer before moving onto winter weddings. Summer months in New York bring great temperatures, sunny days and endless opportunities to hold an outdoor ceremony. Central Park is always a popular choice during these months and is listed as one of New York City's Top 10 wedding locations. So you've decided on Central Park, what next?  Central Park covers a huge area and within the Park there are numerous locations to hold your dream wedding. Whether you decide on the romantic Ladies Pavilion overlooking the Lake and the iconic New York Skyline or you head to the breathtaking landscapes of Strawberry Fields to recite your vows, you really will not be disappointed.

Want something with a bit more grandeur? Head to the majestic Belvedere Castle - a great opportunity to get some fantastic photos. Talking of photos - why not hold the ceremony at the infamous Bow Bridge, iconic landmark featured in many films throughout the years?

If Central Park doesn't fit your plan, why not consider locations such as Brooklyn Bridge Park, or Riverside Park? Again, these are great options for holding a ceremony in the summer months. Surrounded by epic scenery either park provides the most beautiful of backdrops. Photographs can be taken against the water as well as in the park. A stunning skyline is also within easy reach and gives a great option for capturing as many moments as possible.

Winter weddings
Made your decision? Have you thought about winter though?

Central Park is simply stunning in the snow. I realise that most brides would opt for a summer wedding when a cardigan or jacket is rarely needed to cover their beautiful dress. However, modern bridal dressmakers have this covered. There are endless options for the winter bride to look just as spectacular in the winter as the summer. Covering your dress with a luxurious velvet cape can make you look like a princess in the snow. Photos of the bride against a backdrop of snow in the iconic locations of Central Park are breathtaking. 

Still not convinced? If you have your heart set on getting married in the winter months but are scared the weather will not be kind, consider holding the ceremony at our New York City wedding chapel on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Perfect for small weddings of less than 10 people and a great option in inclement weather.
