How to get married in New York
New York City is a dream wedding destination for US citizens and overseas travellers alike - how hard is it to plan?
New York is one of the top worldwide wedding destinations. Combining your wedding with an instant honeymoon is appealing to many couples, including couples travelling from across the world and in particular UK citizens. Planning your big day doesn’t need to be as much of a headache as you might first expect.
The big tour operators and travel advisors will happily dish out information and advice on planning your big day - endless choices of venue, packages, add ons and ‘essentials’. But what do you really need to plan in order to experience your dream wedding day in the Big Apple?
Keep it simple.
Booking a pre-prepared package seems appealing to many as it is the simplest option and saves time and money - NO! Take some time to research the package inclusions yourself. Don’t be blinded by the marketing material that comes from your big name travel companies. Booking your dream package and putting it together yourself can be one of the most fun times of your life.

Control the cost
Taking charge of the planning yourself also means you can take control of the cost involved. A massive advantage of planning and executing your dream wedding yourself is that you aren’t tied into suppliers charging a set package price. Pulling elements together yourself can result in a drastic saving in cost.
Not only are we here to facilitate your wedding ceremony, we can help you with the planning of extras you may require. Be that photography, music or any other service you wish to add - please give us a call or email us to discuss your requirements.
