Wedding season is in full affect with destination nuptials accounting for a large portion of the wedding market, couples continue to seek cool destination locations to not only satisfy their wedding dreams, but that of their guests.

What is the novelty of having a destination wedding? Simply put,  in some cases  a destination wedding often turns out to be a great way to combine the honeymoon for the couple but can also serve as a vacation for their guests.

While some couples may be stressing over the big day details, others choose to keep things more enjoyable and look for locations that will not only be a great backdrop for their wedding photos, but will also be a spectacular playground for their guests.   What better place than New York City.

We were fortunate to stumble upon a gem that was right underneath our noses, between the Theater district and a few feet away from Times Square.  When we say a few feet, we literally mean all you have to do is look out your window and the magic is at your fingertips, you can touch it.

Novetel, Hotels & Resorts, New York Time Square, is one location we would love to recommend to those couples that have always had the fantasy of tying the knot in New York City.  No better place than this gem of a location.  This sophisticated, modern decorated, hotel host 480 rooms, offering you a choice of beds from King to double and all very chic for you fashionistas that can’t get enough of the city that doesn’t sleep and all its sexy ambiance.
