50 Best New York Themed Wedding Ideas

by Emma Arendoski

Cue the music — doo, doo, doo doo doo… it’s up to yooooou, New York, New Yorkkkkk! It’s time for our latest CITYSERIES exclusively at Emmaline Bride and this week we’re going to New York City! These New York themed wedding ideas will inspire you whether you’re planning a modern rooftop wedding in the heart of the city or a ballroom style reception.

You don’t have to be tying the knot in New York to plan a NYC inspired wedding. If you met in the Big Apple, perhaps at school or work, you can tie in a few of these New York themed wedding ideas into your big day.

Or, you can go completely all-in on this theme (which we love) and plan a wedding right in the heart of New York City!

Either way, use this guide to help you plan a New York inspired wedding with New York wedding invitations, NYC inspired decorations, gifts, guest books, cake toppers and more.

NOTE: As we mention with all themed round-ups… just a few accents will do! You needn’t overwhelm your space with New York themed wedding ideas; just add the ones you really, truly love and let the color palette and flowers do the rest. :)
