Choosing New York City as the backdrop for one of the most important days of your life is both incredibly memorable, and somewhat chaotic. We've covered your "something borrowed" when it comes to some local advice lent to us on ways to help guarantee your wedding day is full of celebration and ease.

Tip #1 A Walk in the Park
There are definitely some crowd control factors to include in your wedding day plans when it comes to choosing Central Park as the location spot to say your, "I do's." There are roughly 42 million visitors to the park annually, according to the park's website, so we've come up with an alternative to minimize the number of unexpected tourists added to your guest list: Riverside Park on the neighboring Upper West Side is a stunning swap to the chaos, and crowds, that will guarantee historical waterfront views accompanied by a much lower occupancy.

Tip #2 Stand Out From the Crowd
It can be expected that the holidays, (Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years) are the year's highest time of visitor traffic in New York City. Christmas decorations, and festive holiday displays, add an extra incentive for sightseers to explore the bustling Manhattan streets. Avoid planning your big day around these festively influenced times of the year. Frommer's lists April to June, and September to November, as some of the best periods to visit the Big Apple due to the exceptional temperatures and fewer crowds.

Tip #3 Honeymoon Phase
Tying the knot in New York City means a simple transition from "just married" to "honeymoon phase." Venues like the historic New York Palace offer a variety of traditionally elegant wedding backdrops suited for your ceremony, following by a 'Just Married' honeymoon package that includes everything from chocolate covered strawberries to spa treatments. If post-wedding sanctuary rings your wedding bells, then The Conrad Hotel, Battery Park's romantic getaway, offers packages like, The Romance Retreat, which features champagne, breakfast-in-bed, and an unrivalled city view of Manhattan's famous skyline.

Tip #4 There's an App For That
Navigating through the grid of New York City can be overwhelmingly confusing with the tangle of subway trains, blaring taxi's and miles of weaving pathways. Nothing is worse than experiencing the confusion of figuring out how to get to your ceremony, especially on the morning of your wedding day! Thankfully, apps like HopStop and Citymapper, allow you to plug in your current address with your final destination supplying you with the most convenient, and efficient, means of arriving.

NYC Engagement Photo Locations

After your hubby-to-be has popped the question and before you begin planning the wedding of your dreams, there is a crucial step every couple must complete: The engagement photography session. Couples dwelling in the New York City metropolitan area are in luck, as the Big Apple possesses some of the world's most picturesque landmarks — from towering skyscrapers to lush, bloom-filled botanic gardens. Photographers Jainé M. Kershner, of Brklyn View Photography, Jennifer Macfarlane of Stylish & Hip Weddings Photography, Sarma Ozols of Sarma & Co. Photography, and Kimberly Coccagnia of Kimberly Coccagnia Photography share their expert picks for the best engagement photo locations around the city.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Brides longing for a romantic setting replete with bold blooms need look no further than the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. "Although you need a permit to shoot in this breathtaking location, it's worth it," Kershner reveals. "From the cherry blossoms, blue bonnets, and a spectacular rose garden, you couldn't ask for a more idyllic location for your engagement session." Read real brides' reviews here!

The West Village
Cozy, old-world establishments abound in New York City's West Village, a favorite shooting location of Kershner's. "[The West Village] is filled with historic brownstones, quaint cafes, tree lined streets, and lots of charm," says Kershner. "Walking in the West Village you can discover a lot of hidden gems that will help create unique and beautiful engagement photos."

Central Park
Brides may balk at the notion of setting their photography session in Central Park due to its popularity amongst newly engaged duos, yet Kershner encourages couples not to discount the location. "It might be one of the most photographed places in NYC but there's a reason why — it's gorgeous. Each season brings out different flowers and can completely change a location. My favorite time to visit is spring when the cherry blossoms and magnolia's are in peak season," Kershner insists.

Bushwick and Dumbo's Street Art Murals
Couples searching for an unusual and aesthetically engaging locale will fall for Bushwick and Dumbo's famed street art murals. "The incredible street art murals of Bushwick and DUMBO in Brooklyn work so well for engagement shoots because they allow the inherent creativity of each bride and groom to come out and interact with the amazing street art," Macfarlane says. "When one is surrounded by sky-high paintings, tags, and collaborative street art, one can let loose and relax, knowing that the beautiful art and whimsical energy of the walls compliment the soaring energy of a couple on their lucky day. No matter what, the art makes for amazing pictures!"

The New York City Subway
Your union is on the fast track to a lifetime of happiness, so why not symbolize your love with a locomotive location? "I love the subway, believe it or not," Ozols shares. "I look for very New York-y kinds of things to incorporate in the images, whether it's a mural, public art, or steam from a construction site."

Coney Island
Those searching for a playful and lighthearted location can take a quick train ride to Coney Island for the ultimate engagement photo. "I had one couple that loved Coney Island and spent much time there," Coccagnia recalls. "They were a fun, quirky couple, so we went to Coney Island. They ate cotton candy, rode the rides, ran in the sand, and literally dove right in to their background as opposed to posing in front of an object."
