Metropolitan Building Wedding
Where to start? The best way to begin is to have to have answers to the “basic three”.
The “Basic Three”
2. Have a rough idea of the number of guests you are inviting. This is critical because it will influence the budget and affect your venue choices.
3. Know your total budget - from soup to nuts. List everything that is important to you and put a dollar value next to it and then add 25% (everything costs more then you want!). And by everything, we mean invitations, dress, flowers, DJ, band, venue, caterer – the works!
Once you have the answer to the” basic three”, send inquiries. Knowledge is power so use the power of the internet to begin gathering critical information that will help define your choices. It may feel overwhelming at first but sit back, take a deep breath and remember, it’s a process. As you get out there and ask questions, things will begin to fall into place and you will hit your stride.
For those seeking an out of the box wedding, one of the first steps is finding a venue and in NYC there is no shortage of venues. In addition to the plethora of lofts and white box spaces, there are ballrooms, studios, halls, roof desks, old converted synagogues, and a converted sausage factory. We have our fair share of favorite venues, many of which are listed on our website.
