Spring in New York City is nothing short of magical. As the city emerges from the chill of winter, vibrant blooms paint the streets, and the crisp sunny air pushes everyone out of their homes. It’s no wonder why many couples choose this enchanting season to exchange vows amidst the bustling energy and timeless elegance of New York. In the wedding world, this is when we get to lean into pastels, parasols, fun textured linens, and so much more. From iconic venues to picturesque outdoor settings, the options are as diverse as the city itself. Let’s explore the details that can make your New York City Spring Wedding truly unforgettable.


One of the first decisions you’ll make when planning your New York City spring wedding is the venue. Fortunately, the city offers an array of options to suit every couple’s style and preferences. For those who crave classic sophistication, iconic venues such as The Plaza Hotel or 620 Loft and Garden provide a timeless backdrop for your special day. Imagine saying “I do” amidst opulent ballrooms adorned with fresh blooms and sparkling chandeliers, or with the iconic St Patrick’s Cathedral bells ringing you into your marriage. Alternatively, embrace the city’s natural beauty with an outdoor ceremony in Central Park or the Prospect Park Boathouse. Exchange vows beneath blooming cherry blossoms or beside the tranquil waters of the pond, creating an enchanting tableau that captures the essence of spring in the city. Check out this elegant 620 Loft and Garden wedding, complete with an elevated floral design and dining experience. 

Create and Outdoor Oasis

Take advantage of New York City’s picturesque outdoor spaces by hosting your wedding ceremony or reception alfresco. Whether you choose a lush garden like the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, scenic waterfront venue looking over the city skyline, or iconic park setting like the Prospect Park Boathouse, an outdoor wedding allows you to embrace the beauty of nature while enjoying the vibrant energy of the city. Enhance your venue with romantic lighting, comfortable lounge seating, and whimsical touches such as hanging lanterns or twinkling string lights to create a magical ambiance under the stars. Even if you choose an indoor venue, having a lounge area outdoors or moving your dance party outside is a great touch for guests to enjoy the crisp New York air!

Floral Design

Spring weddings are synonymous with blooming flowers, and your floral arrangements should reflect the season’s vibrant colors and textures! Combat the “concrete jungle” of New York with delicate florals. Working with a talented florist is key to create bouquets and centerpieces that showcase the best of spring blooms, from pastel peonies to fragrant lilacs. Consider incorporating seasonal touches such as tulips, hyacinths, and ranunculus into your floral designs, infusing your celebration with the fresh scents and vibrant hues of springtime in New York City. In the Spring especially, we love to lean into the delicate nature of bud vases. Having 2-3 buds per vase really lets you appreciate the individuality of each flower. You can create an impressive tablescape packed full of bud vases, or sporadically place them around your cocktail hour. Check out this blog, featuring the cutest bud vases!

Personal Touches

When it comes to weddings, we always remind our couples that there are NO rules! Anything you want at your wedding, you will likely be able to get. With that said, some of our favorite personal touches we have seen at spring weddings in New York are things like escort card walls featuring your wedding monogram, parasols for a potentially rainy day, table numbers that are names of the New York City parks, or even bringing your furry friend along for the ride! No matter what it is, infusing your New York City spring wedding with personal touches ensures that your celebration is as unique and unforgettable as your love story.
