City Style Weddings

I've been talking about the great outdoors and nature-themed weddings. But today, I have something a little different: city weddings! We're heading to the big cities of dreams, New York, LA, surrounding ourselves with skyscrapers and a busy night scene. It's the perfect place to young couples to find love and fall in love. Start a fresh life, career and marriage right in the bustling city where hope awaits!

This post is inspired by the modern career women who juggles everything and still manages to find love. A city style wedding theme has a very "sex in the city - Sarah Jessica Parker" vibe to it.

City style weddings are all about looking modern, chic and elegant. Monochrome color schemes (shades of gold, silver, grey, black and white) are commonly used because they are reminiscent of skyscrapers and tall windows. And of course, no city wedding is complete without the bride's modern, flirty wedding dress. Short or tea-length dresses are high fashion and sexy! You can accessorize your short wedding dress with a pearl necklace, long earrings and killer heels for that high fashioned, career women look. They are also perfect for the summer.

If you manage to rent the rooftop of a skyscraper, you'll probably be granted the most enchanting bird's eye view of the city. The city night scene is probably one of the most romantic. With different colored lights lighting up the night sky, it's the perfect backdrop for any wedding reception.

Which would be your favorite city to get married in?
