Summer is Rooftop wedding season here at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, which means the sky’s literally the limit when it comes to planning the details of your big day! How does a rooftop wedding differ from another type of wedding? Well, aside from the breathtaking views and sky-high reach for your decor, there are a few things you should consider when planning your summer rooftop wedding.
Part of the fun of wedding planning is planning your wedding decor. What’s even more fun is when you have ample space to be creative. Think tall and wide chuppahs, or other kinds of decor that may otherwise be too big for other venues. Plus, with the beautiful skyline views of NYC, the juxtaposition of your decor will only create more visual appeal.
Outdoor weddings mean outdoor fun! Why not bring in some fun outdoor games for your guests to enjoy during your reception. Popular outdoor games include croquet, golf, bocce and cornhole or other games that allow your guests to have fun without necessarily working up a sweat in their wedding attire.
Cake is great, but adding a dessert bar to your wedding reception is a great way for guests to get exactly what they want. A creative way to keep your guests feeling comfortable in hot weather is to have an ice cream bar or serve frozen desserts and drinks in addition to the cake.
Summer can get pretty hot, even in NYC, so be sure to provide some heat relief for your guests. Bringing in big fans or a misting station can help keep guests cool. Bringing umbrellas and tents can also help shield your guests from the sun in the heat of the day.
Speaking of shielding your guests from the sun, offer sun protection products like sunblock for guests to apply if they need it.
In addition to your signature cocktail, be sure to provide ample water to your guests. Our in-house catering department can prepare a variety of beverages including fruit infused water, so your guests remain refreshed throughout your entire celebration.
If you think the sun or the heat will be an issue, pay attention to the weather reports and try to plan to have your wedding during the cooler hours of the day, such as early in the morning or evening.
Heart set on an indoor wedding? We can still help. Our indoor venue will stay cooler and keep your guests out of the sun, and it’s available during the summer months. With our raw space and high ceilings, we can accommodate large parties and voluminous decor. With our beautiful windows you can see the captivating NYC skyline from indoors, too.
