Coffee & Advice
You know how it feels when you’re out shopping and are blissfully "just looking," without feeling the pressure to buy? A visit to Wedding Café NY, 212-213-2616, weddingcafeny.com, an increasingly popular "bridal hangout" near Bryant Park, is kind of the same thing. This boutique/coffee bar serves as an information center, providing details on a variety of area wedding vendors, products and services. You can survey the work of participating florists and bakers, or head to a multimedia room to screen a few videographers’ demos—all in one cushy location (by appointment). But, in the lounge part of the space, drop-ins are more than welcome. Grab a cappuccino while flipping through loads of wedding magazines and books, or just trade tips with other brides.
