What adds that extra flash to New York weddings?

When planning a wedding in New York, people immediately think New York City, The Big Apple. And with good reason. The number and variety of venues there is phenomenal. From the United Nations Rooftop Patio to Brooklyn Botanic Garden. From Gotham Hall to the Central Park Boathouse. But New York boasts beautiful and intimate settings for weddings throughout the state. Brides and grooms seek the beauty of Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia or the multiple charms of Stablegate Barns, Lodge and Vineyard in Castleton-on-Hudson. Whether they go for urban or rural, count on New Yorkers to make their weddings personal statements, a symbol and celebration of a deeper commitment. And though they set the trends in the city, they are quick to buck it in independent upstate areas.

Industrial is trending in wedding themes right now, but vintage is still a go in upstate New York. Rustic also still has its fans, and a bride or groom interested in boots and beer will pick up a Keegan-brewed Hurricane Kitty ale in Kingston and proceed with the barn decorating plans.

Metallics are favored for colors right now, but New York is embracing pinks, especially in alternate colors for wedding gowns. Rose gold anyone? Yes, please. The metallic tones show up in decoration and even the icing on the cake. Greenery is another spot-on color this year, but it’s also a big part of the decoration — as in foliage. Expect extra greenery to be the base to local flowers — not the imported and exotic greenhouse varieties. Brides and grooms are picking whatever’s local and whatever’s in season to beautify their wedding arrangements and decoration. If it’s winter, they may opt for all green pines and sprigs and find themselves both trendy and unique.

As for the menu, sit-down is back in instead of food stations. And food trucks just don’t cut it in many places, but meals on wheels is trending. Servers pushing carts laden with appetizers or desserts or customizable foods like salads, potatoes, and even guacamole. Although food is entertainment, it’s never the only entertainment. The debate continues over the DJ or the live band, with the band being top of the seesaw right now. But it doesn’t matter what a magazine says is in or out regarding at least one form of entertainment. Savvy couples are making sure they have at least one photo booth at their event. It is becoming as necessary as the wedding ring, as much a mainstay as the first dance tradition. The photo booth is a must-have! And New Yorkers from Albany to Buffalo book photo booths for all the wedding events, from pre-parties to after-parties.

When making wedding arrangements, it’s important to choose a good photo booth that will capture memories for the wedding guests and for the bride and groom; they can review the pictures later and have them forever. Choose a high-tech system that boasts connections to social media, the ability to text, and will provide an album of the photos taken for the newlyweds. Selfie Station offers all the bells and whistles.
