Choosing the Date
The time of year factors into everything, and, though there is not a bad time to have an NYC wedding, it is helpful to consider what is in store for you during each season.
The spring season is a beautiful time of year to be married here in New York. Perhaps you will even work around some of the timeless events held during the spring months. The Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival takes place in April, where you can enjoy cherry blossoms at their best. Macy’s Flower Show is a two-week event that offers exhibitions of some of the loveliest floral arrangements, trees, and plants you will ever experience. Everyone has a bit of Irish in their family tree during the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in mid to late March as it makes its way to the St. Patrick Cathedral.
Even with the humidity, summer months offer many spectacular events to work your special day around. You can find an idyllic spot in one of the NYC parks to watch the fireworks on the 4th; attend the Governors Ball Music Festival; or, for the jazz lover, visit during the Blue Note Jazz Festival, which takes place in a variety of venues, offering both local and worldwide talent, for nearly a month.
How about some breathtaking color for your backdrop? Just a few places that offer gorgeous fall foliage include Fort Tryon Park, Central Park with its Conservatory Water, Great Hill, Tupelo Meadow, Prospect Park in Brooklyn, where its red maples lead the color change, and the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx with its famous Thain Family Forest. Keep an eye on the weather and the beginning of the holiday rush, however, if you plan an outdoor wedding and/or reception.
In the winter, you will enjoy cheaper rates, smaller crowds, and the holiday warmth and cheer of Christmas in New York. Enjoy the sights like the Rockefeller Christmas Tree, Fifth Avenue holiday window displays, and the iconic New Year’s Eve Ball Drop. But you will also want to plan around the snow and dropping temps for any outdoor events.
