People with similar ideas to mine might like to listen to Lisa Burton, principal consultant at thebridalconsultant.co.uk who, in conjunction with Caxton FX, has completed a rundown of the ten most favoured places to have a wedding around the world.
And lo and behold! New York happens to be fourth on the list, behind Sri Lanka, Cyprus and the Caribbean. I suppose it depends if you want glitz and glamour or more of a rustic feel and I can see the merits of all these places but, at this point, I think the Big Apple is swinging it for me.
The foreign exchange company said that it's possible to have a "stylish and first-class wedding experience" that will not cost the earth and Ms Burton went one step further, saying that it's perfect for anyone looking for a "unique" experience.
"Leafy Central Park offers stunning settings, from rustic Ladies Pavilion to the beautiful Conservatory Gardens, which you can hire exclusively for your ceremony," she remarked.
Lots of people seem to think that New York has romantic connotations. Valarie D'Elia of NY1 recently noted that there are lots of things for couples to get up to in the city on Valentine's Day, including cooking classes or heading to the Rockefeller Centre to take part in the Skate-A-Date programme.
