Winter Weddings on the Rise!
Winter weddings are growing in popularity, and December is now the #3 wedding month for brides, behind May and June — and with good reason. Having a winter wedding, from ceremony to reception, is guaranteed to make an impression in the memories of all your guests, simply because it’s different from all of the spring and summer weddings they typically attend. Although, June weddings are a dream, it’s the busiest month for weddings, so the chance that all of your top vendor picks will be available on the same date is pretty slim. But since December, January, and February are less popular among brides, they’re your best bet to get who you want and for less! You’ll find that many vendors are willing to cut you a deal during these cold-weather months. Another big reason to love a winter wedding is the idea of an island honeymoon! Justify an escape from the cold, and fly to a warm and sunny island for a sweet honeymoon adventure.
New York City Wedding Venues
Of course, Central Park makes a winter wedding dreamy and romantic but let’s see what else Manhattan has to offer.
New York Vintners located at 21 Warren Street in Tribeca. It’s not what you would generally think of as a wedding venue facility, but if you’re a wine lover, New York Vintners even offer wine pairing at your reception.
Located at the Chelsea Arts Tower at 545 West 25th Street, is the architecturally acclaimed building in the heart of Manhattan, The Glasshouses. The Glasshouses boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, which provide spectacular views of the Hudson River, Downtown and Midtown Manhattan. The balconies offer the perfect place to view the magnificent sunset and evening city views. The clean white canvas look of The Glasshouses allows for all different décor and themes to fit right in, making it truly a unique winter wedding occasion.
620 Loft & Gardens at 620 Fifth Avenue may be a great fit for your winter wedding. On the roof of the British Empire Building, seven floors above the Rockefeller Center and looking out on St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Fifth Avenue and Radio City Music Hall in an oasis of lush greens to celebrate your nuptials. In the winter, you’ll be able to see the ice skaters at Rockefeller Center’s beloved ice rink, as well as, the famous Christmas tree.
Central Park practically oozes romance. And tucked away in an area off East 74th Street is the Loeb Boathouse, a dining destination along The Lake that’s one of the park’s most sought-after places to get married. Weddings are held in the Lake Room, whose French doors and windows fill the space with natural light during the day and provide a means of seeing the watercolor sky at dusk. When the weather is nice, the fun spills out to the deck that overlooks the water. From there, guests can watch you and your partner be whisked away on a Venetian gondola, to savor your first moments as newlyweds.
Newlyweds Luxury NYC Apartments
After the wedding cake and honeymoon, the newlyweds finally come home. Maybe, it’s time to start thinking about your family as you settle into married life. The Silver Towers at 620 West 42nd Street would be ideal with their two bedroom luxury apartments in New York City.
The Silver Towers are twin residential buildings in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. The 60-story buildings stand on the west side of Eleventh Avenue between 41st Street and 42nd Street near the Hudson River, and contain 1,359 luxury units. Top notch service, health club, 75 foot long swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms, doorman service, concierge service, on-site indoor parking, Spot Canine Club, Rooftop & Club 7 Lounge, and shuttle buses. Oh, and we almost forgot to mention the public park with a children’s area on the west side of the towers.
One bedroom apartments at Manhattan’s Silver Towers will rent for $4,200 to $6,000 per month depending on the location of the unit. Two bedrooms range from $5,500 to $7,300 and well worth the price for the outstanding location and all the amenities.
