Tour New York in Style: Although it’s easy to get around the city by foot or train, why not make it an experience? Do a kayak tour of Manhattan’s famous skyline or bike around your favorite neighborhoods using Citi Bike rentals. Also look into the walking and bus tours, many of which are themed off of iconic New York sights, like the NYC TV and Movie Tour.
Treat Yourself: Your girls’ weekend in NYC should include some pampering! Check out local spa treatments and relax! Go to Chilhouse(the name alone is encouraging) for a variety of spa treatments and cappuccino on the side. If you’re a major Essie fan, you can also visit the flagship salon and pick from 300 iconic nail polish shades. Extra points if you can swatch your perfect wedding colors!
It’s Showtime: There’s nothing better than a Broadway show in New York. If you’ve got the funds, book tickets to see a musical at one of the 41 professional theaters in NYC. You can always try your luck at entering the lottery to win day-of tickets. If musicals aren’t your thing, think about getting tickets to late night shows like SNL or Stephen Colbert.
Dinner & Drinks: There is no lack of restaurants and bars in NYC for a girls’ night out. Feelin Sushi? Get a reservation at Sugarfish, across the street from Brideside NYC!. Insta-worthy shakes and burgers? Get Black Tap. Want pizza? Capizzi has our vote. (Order the House Sangria.)
Dessert Walk: So many sweets, it needs its own section. Dough is a must-have. We’re also fond of Milk Bar, which has several delicious locations. Serendipity’s frozen hot chocolate will change your life —get a reservation in advance so you don’t have to wait!
There are a lot of ways you can make your NYC girl’s weekend getaway a bit more affordable. If there aren’t enough places for people to stay at friends’ houses, check out AirBnB for some lower-cost listings. Ubers and Lyfts add up, so if you’re planning totravel around, look into getting MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) passes, which give you access to subways and buses. Pro Tip: Wear the most supportive shoes you have; you’ll be walking a lot more than you expect!
Also be sure to browse Groupon’s local pages for discounts on restaurants and activities you were already planning on doing anyway.
We also recommend asking your complimentary Brideside stylist for ideas on places to eat, shop and explore in New York City!
If you’re getting married in New York, incorporate that into your girls’ weekend activities! Does your wedding venue have a restaurant inside? Take your besties there for a nice dinner or even just drinks! Who knows —maybe you’ll get some inspiration on your signature cocktail! You could also get in some major wedding shopping in NYC with your bridesmaids! Re-live Sex and the City with your girlfriends by taking to Madison Avenue for some serious NYC shopping. Overwhelmed? Don’t worry; we’ve found the complete shopping guide for all of your wedding event needs. Find rehearsal dinner dresses or matching bachelorette party outfits in one of the 150 luxury designer boutiques. If you’re into more wallet-friendly finds, check out the shops at Herald Square!
Still on the hunt for some killer wedding heels? We recommend Stuart Weitzmanon Madison Ave., or the massive DSW on 14th street. Nordstrom Rack (there’s one in Union Square and Herald Square) has tons of selection as well. If you’re not planning to surprise your bridesmaids with jewelry the day of the wedding, you could also take this time to look for earrings or necklaces that speakto each woman’s personal style. Everyone will have a great souvenir to remember the girls’ weekend by, and it’s a fun way to make some special memories. For absolutely stunning vintage jewelry, check out Pippin!
