With summer about to start, there’s likely to be a lot of excitement about warmer weather, vacations, and all the fun that the season brings. But did you know that if you’re preparing for a wedding this fall, now is the time to start planning? Yes, it’s definitely hard to think about the fall when summer is just kicking off, but the sooner you prepare for your wedding, the better!

Here are some key elements you should be planning for now rather than later for your wedding at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC.

Book Your Venue

If you haven’t already, now is the time to book your wedding venue. Fall weddings in the crisp NYC air are very popular, so be sure to secure your date before someone else does! At Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC we have great options for fall weddings including both indoor and outdoor spaces for your ceremony and reception. We also have in-house catering for your menu planning, and now is the perfect time to plan your menu.

Order Your Gown

Because it can take months for a wedding gown to arrive, it’s important to buy your gown as early as possible in the wedding planning process. This will ensure that you have enough time for alterations if needed.

While you’re at it, don’t forget to choose your bridal party attire and be sure your bridal party is able to order their dresses and suits now as well! Bridal salons will have fall colors ready now, so don’t worry about not finding the right style yet!

Secure Your Photographer

Just like venues in the fall book quickly, so do photographers. Selecting a wedding photographer is a fun part of the planning process! Look for a photographer whose work is your ‘style’ and who is familiar with your wedding venue. If they’re familiar with the venue they’ll know the right places to shoot from, and know hidden spots to get that perfect shot!

Choose Your Colors

From the flowers to the linens to the maids gowns, groomsmens’ ties and your lighting scheme, color is an important part of any wedding. Pick your wedding colors now so you can secure all the colored items you’ll need this fall.

Items that should be ordered in advance include wedding attire, linens, and flowers. At Tribeca Rooftop + 360° we have our own in-house AV team, AV Workshop, who can help with any audio visual needs, including colored lighting to match your theme, and the setup of audio visual equipment such as television screens and speakers.

Book Your Entertainment

What kind of entertainment will you be having on your big day? A DJ? Strolling musicians? A lively band? Whatever type of entertainment you choose, be sure to book them well in advance so they have time to make preparations for your big day, and so that some other lucky couple doesn’t book them first!
