Whether you're saying "I do" at city hall or in an opulent ball room, these metropolitan looks are perfect for you (and your groom!).
You found each other, fell hard, and got engaged. Your romance is epic—and your wedding-day attire will be, too. Will you have a grand wedding in the park, a glittering affair in a ballroom, a chic-and-sweet rendezvous at city hall? The following looks, photographed all over New York City, offer inspiration for the many shapes your day (or night!) might take. After all, there's more than one way to celebrate in style.
On the big day, all eyes may be on the bride, but we were sure to turn our gaze towards the groom, too. After getting your fill of bridal inspiration, you'll also find ideas for him, including classic, slim-cut tuxedos in unexpected prints and hues, like tartan, blush, and charcoal. When it came time to accessorize both bride and groom, we turned back to New York City as a guide. As you scroll, you'll fall in love with luxurious Harry Winston engagement rings, cascading pearl earrings, and diamond necklaces. City wedding or not, you won't be able to resist the opulence.
Your love is lifting you higher. Or maybe it's the swirling and swishing of your embroidered petticoat skirt paired with a snowy jacket and white sheer satin pumps, all by the inimitable Oscar de la Renta. It could even be the sight of your dapper groom in a Joseph Abboud houndstooth suit sending your heart flying. Either way, the view is pretty great.
