Big City Wedding Inspiration

Big City Wedding Inspiration

by BridalPulse

Last week, we explored some ideas for a beautiful, rustic garden wedding. Today we have some wedding inspiration for the modern bride with big city dreams. City weddings are magical in their own right; between towering skyscrapers, glistening lights and a varying architecture you are usually in for some amazing photography.  There is also such great style that goes along with a big city wedding, from venue to the décor, and especially in the bride’s wedding dress, a city wedding has a sense of grandness associated with it. And Shutterfly can help set the stage with a variety of bold invitation styles and an elegant wedding photo book to capture those cherished moments from your big day. If you’re dreaming of or planning a city wedding make sure to check out our favorite pieces below.

A Modern Big City Themed Wedding

If you take a strong color palette and some bold décor, your wedding can definitely compete with the grandness of a locale such as New York City. While some may shy away from incorporating black into a wedding ceremony, we think it’s a color that exuberates simple elegance, add in some purples and gold sparkle and you are sure to have a wedding that will be remembered for years.  Wedding Invitations are a perfect way to start sharing your wedding theme with your guests. Following our big city inspiration, the City of Love invitation from Shutterfly combines a black card stock with a shimmering gold font and skyline design for a modern look. For our more daring brides, sprinkle some hints of black into your wedding bouquet with flowers such as Black Dahlias and Black Magic Hollyhocks, and lighten it up with some big white Anemones to bring through that feeling of timeless sophistication.

Take your time choosing the décor and menu options and don’t be afraid to make powerful statements. We think this gold sequin, black and white six tier cake from the Caketress is absolutely stunning! Add on a beautiful custom Shutterfly guest book for your guests to leave some wishes, thoughts, and advice to cherish through the years.  If you are a bride that wants to add a personal touch to your big day we love these gold photo cubes which would look amazing scattered throughout the wedding with your favorite memories and engagement photos to give your guest a glimpse into the amazing love that made all of this possible.  Plus these Shutterfly cubes will make perfect gifts for your close family!
