Whether you’re tying the knot with your Violet sweetheart, or marking another occasion, these NYU alumni entrepreneurs can help you be the hostess with the mostest. And of course, be sure to check out your NYU Alumni Benefits for discounts on things like flowers, space rentals, restaurants, and more.
