New York cou­ples are say­ing yes to multi-lo­ca­tion fes­tiv­i­ties.

In bridal cir­cles, New York City is known for be­ing home to the in­dus­try’s top cater­ers, pho­tog­ra­phers, venues, florists, dress de­sign­ers, and plan­ners. But this treasure trove of tal­ent can make it a tad over­whelm­ing to nar­row down the options. “This city has a lot to of­fer,” says Ta­tiana By­ron, owner of the Wed­ding Sa­lon (535 Eighth Ave., 212631-7777; wed­dingsa­lon.com), a lux­ury cu­ra­tor of wed­ding ven­dors. “Think first about your guest’s ex­pe­ri­ence.”

For cou­ples that can’t quite de­cide, some­times they just don’t have to. New York fash­ion pair Sara Towbin and Nick Stein chose mul­ti­ple venues for their nup­tials. They kept it small with a rus­tic out­door cer­e­mony and ro­man­tic lun­cheon at Dan Bar­ber’s up­state culi­nary mecca, Blue Hill at Stone Barns (630 Bed­ford Road, Po­can­tico Hills, 914-366-9600; blue­hill­farm.com), with only close friends and fam­ily in at­ten­dance. As na­tive New York­ers, they couldn’t ig­nore the siren call of the city, so they capped off the fes­tiv­i­ties the next evening with a blowout party at the Top of the Stan­dard (848 Wash­ing­ton St., 212-645-7600; stan­dard­ho­tels .com). As one of New York’s trendi­est nightspots, with panoramic city views, the Stan­dard was the per­fect top­per to Sara and Nick’s wed­ding week­end.

“WE TRULY ARE NEW YORK­ERS. HAVING EV­ERY­ONE EN­JOY THAT VIEW ABOVE MAN­HAT­TAN WAS MA­JOR FOR US.” – SARA TOWBIN
