Have you dreamed of getting married on a rooftop in New York City? If you’d like to celebrate your special day from such a vantage point in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, or Staten Island or Manhattan, then you have an amazing – and dizzying! – selection of gorgeous wedding venues. NYC is home to a wide range of amazing rooftop spaces that boast everything from panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline to blooming, hidden gardens that will transport you and your guests to another world.
Narrowing down the options is mostly a matter of your overall vision, personal preferences, and, of course, the realities of your wedding budget.
One of the most important first steps when planning your Big Day is to choose a venue. For some couples, this process can be incredibly overwhelming – especially with the sheer quantity and variety of options in NYC.
Local wedding planners can be a helpful resource when searching for the perfect venue. You can also check social media channels to see real-life images from past rooftop weddings in NYC. This will not only give you some great ideas, it can also save time by helping you figure out in advance which venues might be worth a visit.
Perhaps most importantly, you should confirm that the venue is available on your preferred date. The location also needs to be able to accommodate the number of wedding guests you plan to invite and because the venue will inform the entire look and feel of the day, you’ll want to see that the space complements your desired aesthetic. Finally, you need to research whether the venue cost is within your budget.
NYC rooftop wedding venues are often "blank slates". This means that typically, you’ll need to bring in your own wedding rentals, like tables and chairs, along with catering services and other specialized vendors like a wedding photographer and DJ. Although this can involve additional coordination for the happy couple, it also allows for a high-degree of customization. You’ll even be able to choose your own unique décor – don’t forget floral arrangements and romantic lighting for your Big Day!
Check our our online vendor manager to help keep it all organized.
Ask whether the venue offers an on-site day-of coordinator, or whether they require you to use their preferred wedding vendors. Make sure there’s a place to set up a dance floor; explore lighting effects and ambient sound at appropriate times of day or night; and explore the perfect spot to pose for wedding photos.
No matter during which season you choose to tie the knot, make sure you have a weather back-up plan for your rooftop wedding in NYC.
