New York Wedding Theme

Wedding Venue

If you are in New York itself, Central Park would be the most favored wedding venue.

Decorations and Centerpieces

The color schemes of the wedding might be classic cream and black,  tiffany blue and white/ivory/silver or art deco black and white. Purchase replicas of the landmarks and use as centerpieces. You could decorate each table or each centerpiece in the style of the landmark it represents. Get wedding stationery printed with the Manhattan skyline design and if possible the same skyline design would look wonderful as a backdrop.

Table Names

Name your tables after the most popular New York Landmarks. Here are some to get you started:

Statue of Liberty
Empire State Building
Central Park
Ellis Island
Times Square
Grand Central Station
The Guggenheim
Radio City Music Hall
Rockefeller Center
Madison Avenue
Museum of Modern Art
Saks Fifth Avenue
Bloomingdales
Chrysler Building
Macy's
Brooklyn Bridge
Manhattan
Little Italy
Chinatown
Battery Park
Wall Street
Broadway

Group people with similar interests on relevant tables. For e.g. your Fashionista friends could be on 'Bloomingdales' or 'Saks Fifth Avenue',  finance bugs can be grouped on 'Wall Street' and theatre lovers will be cozy on 'Broadway'. The Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building can be your head table.

Music

New York themed songs are a great way to set the mood. Here are some of the popular ones:

New York, New York - Frank Sinatra
I guess the Lord must be in New York City - Harry Nilsson
I Love NYC - Andrew W.K.
I Love New York - Madonna
Oh Oh I Love Her So - The Ramones (If you met and fell in love in NYC)
Dreaming of Manhattan - Echo Brain (If you are not having your wedding in NYC)
Eyes of a New York Woman - B.J. Thomas (If the Bride is from NYC)
Livin' La Vida Loca - Ricky Martin (to get everyone going)
When I First Kissed You - Extreme (If that's where you kissed first)

Cake and Menu

Your cake will be the center of attraction. Choose a Statue of Liberty cake topper or get it done like a stack of Tiffany boxes.

Manhattan Cocktails and New York Cheesecake are a must for any New York themed wedding. You can also have platters or bowls of Hershey's kisses and/or Oreo on the buffet table. Since it's the 'Big Apple' theme, have some apple themed food as well. Cookies in the shape of a landmark or the NY taxicabs will be a great addition.

Favors

'I Love NY' T-Shirts, New York Travel Guides, miniature replicas of NY landmarks, New York Magazine, New York Postcards, Hershey's kisses, NYC key chains and pens, mini Empire State Building paper weights, I Love NY candy bars, matchbox taxicabs, caramel apples (it's the Big Apple after all!) etc. all go great with a New York theme. Or if you are going with the Tiffany blue color, fill Tiffany style boxes with favors.

Gift your bridesmaids jewelry in Tiffany boxes or gift them the classic Bloomingdales little brown bag.
