With all the energy that goes into planning a New York City wedding it’s so easy to lose sight of the the true meaning. Fear not, here’s some tips to help you feel confident, relaxed and allow your big day to run just as you imagined.
Make sure you take transportation into account months before hand. Not to add another thing to your list, but you won’t want to be responsible for helping 100 or so of your guests around NYC when you have more important things to worry about. Did you know Uber has event services? Share Uber event services or other ride sharing apps before they get into town, so they aren’t so flustered with the fast moving pace of the city when they are trying to get to various locations.
Guys! It’s about you too. We want everyone to look and feel their best including the fellas. We always joke that women have our great big bridal suite, but men can pretty much do a quick change anywhere. In all seriousness, your significant other wants you to look and more importantly feel your best as well. Try to use some hair product months before even if your new to ‘man-tenance.’
Take some time for yourself to relax and explore. If you’re a NYC native be a tourist for a day with your significant other and make it feel like a ‘staycation.’
We suggest picking a photographer who knows the area like Le Image to schedule pictures at some of the city’s most iconic spots such as the Brooklyn Bridge or some of the cool urban backdrop around Brooklyn. Let the professionals do the work on this one so your not plotting spots for photos when you should be relaxing.
Plan ahead, stay calm, but most importantly have fun and enjoy saying “I do” to the love of your life!
