Although country weddings can be incredibly popular among brides and grooms-to-be, choosing a city wedding could give you an absolutely stunning urban backdrop for your big day. Don’t be put off by the unpredictability of organising your wedding in a city – if you love the area you live in and have always dreamed of a cosmopolitan wedding, then a city-scape wedding will give you everything you need. From iconic landmarks to the lit up streets at night, a metropolitan wedding can be an absolutely stunning occasion.
It might seem like a logistical nightmare organising a successful wedding photoshoot with your photographer in the hustle and bustle of a city on the day of your wedding. While it may take a little longer for you to get the perfect shot due to several tourists unknowingly intruding on your photos, it’s not the end of the world. There are techniques to edit your shoot following your wedding day, and it’s definitely worth it for the beautiful back-drop and the final outcome. You might not even mind a casual photo-bomb from those tourists – it adds to the real feel of the city, and your wedding.
If you want to go the whole mile in styling your city wedding, then an art deco style reception definitely makes the perfect coupling with your city surroundings. You could even name your tables after famous or your favourite destinations. Copper and gold will be your friend, and make beautiful colours for table styling at your reception. You could even use 1920’s style typography, to add to the vintage art deco theme, which fits superbly with your city-scape scenery.
Choosing a wedding venue for your city wedding may actually be an easier affair than a country destination. A rooftop reception could be an excellent idea if you’re planning on getting married somewhere warm. Towards the evening, the view across the city would make a breath-taking backdrop, spread with a sea of city lights across the urban horizon. If you plan to marry in a cooler destination, search around for hidden gems within the city, as there are some stunning venues that you may not even know about yet.
