New York Ideas We Love

Over the Bridge

If it’s gonna be Brooklyn, it’s gotta be the Brooklyn Bridge. Try as we might to find an alternative icon for weddings in this fair borough, there is no getting around the fact that this overexposed landmark is instantly—and universally—recognized. Fortunately, this beloved bridge can be rendered to suit a variety of styles. This nostalgic invitation (left, top) by Vivian Pastuovich for ARTHUR’s Invitations, 212-807-6502,, is more stylish than an actually vintage photograph, yet the colors and skyline background are true-to-life. A hipster approach by Lion in the Sun (left, bottom) with custom artwork by Alison McCauliff, 718-369-4006,, yields this avant-garde design that has the same feel as an abstract painting hanging in a Dumbo gallery.
