Start Spreading The News – New York Themed Wedding Styling and Moodboards

Start spreading the news, I being creative today, I have created New York Themed Wedding Styling  and moodboards for your Big day!

Ok cheesey I know but if you sing the first line of this feature in your head as Frank Sinatra it sounds so much more impressive.


I went to New York in early 2002, and I just loved it and I really want to go back, its just the feel and the excitement of the place, so infectious, and so Wow!

The theme screams City Chic, and  New York is one of the most fashionable cities in the World.

As an introduction to your day Invitations with the New York skyline would be particularly effective, the city is synonimus with the Skyscraper.

The colour pallette is very flexible but keep it classic, monochrome with another signature colour to make things pop would work well.

For the Bride and her maids, gowns with sleek lines would look stunning, and nothing is more handsome than the gents in a tuxedo.


Prior to the actual wedding meal, the drinks reception could be changed to something Carrie and the Sex and the City girls would be proud of.

Try Cosmopolitans instead of the normal champagne, just to be a little bit different, and in a nod to our U.S friends rename it the “Cocktail Hour”

For canapes, do the New Yorker proud by having mini Hot dog rolls, mini burgers and mini bagels.


To dress your reception tables, table linens can be simple yet striking in your key colours.

Table names could be inspired by famous landmarks in the City such as the Statue of Liberty, Time Square, Manhattan, Central Park, Broadway, Wall Street, and many more.

From a table centre piece, have art deco inspired vases with a vintage arrangement of white blooms possibly with the addition of  blooms in your signature colour to soften the look.


For the cake, you can have some fun..

You could keep classic and have a cake with just a monochrome palette, or you could choose the Statue of liberty, a cake with the skyline or the famous yellow New York cab.

Or  go all Sex and The City, and have a cupcake tower – very Magnolia Bakery.


And to bling up the whole look of the reception venue, many fairy lights could be used as this would epitomise the brightness of the city.

For favours, consider little art deco picure frames, which could double as place settings or cookies in the style of the New York landmarks.

For music, nothing suits New York more than Frank Sinatra, so a swing band, jazz or a tribute act would be a fun addition to the celebrations.
