With fall in full swing and a definite chill in the air, believe it or not, it's almost time to start thinking about winter, and winter wedding season. Here in NYC, we are fortunate to have four distinct seasons, but each season comes with its own set of rules, and an outdoor wedding in December looks a lot different than a June wedding. Thankfully, at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, we can help with some tips to make your winter wedding go as smoothly as possible, so you can embrace the differences in temperatures for the winter wonderland wedding of your dreams! Here are just a few!

Notify Your Guests

Here at Tribeca Rooftop + 360°, we have both indoor and outdoor space for your wedding or special event. If you choose to take advantage of the crisp winter weather, let your guests know in advance so they can dress accordingly. Chic outerwear, warm boots, and versatile layers are all excellent options for staying toasty warm during your outdoor ceremony or celebration so let your guests know if they will be spending any time outside. They will appreciate the heads up to bundle up in style.

Space Heaters

Space heaters are always appreciated when having an outdoor wedding, and most look sleek and unobtrusive. They can be hidden out of view of your photos, and will help keep your guests cozy during your vows and celebrations.

Chic Cover Ups

Winter presents unique fashion opportunities for the wedding party, including fluffy stoles, long sleeved gowns, and ornate shawls. Use the chilly temps to take advantage of the unique winter styles at your bridal boutique. Even if your wedding is entirely indoors, these options create a warm seasonal vibe at your wedding.

Seasonal Food

Root vegetables, soups, and stews are great dining options for a winter wedding, so speak to our in-house catering department about how you can incorporate seasonal foods into your menu. You can even add cool-weather signature cocktails to keep your guests feeling warm all night long.

Coat Check

Coat checks are a great way to keep the clutter of coats off your decor, and provide a sense of security for your guests. This will allow them to relax and enjoy themselves without the worry of having to check on their coats all night long.

Winter Colors

Winter color palettes are richer and deeper than the light and bright colors of summer and spring, but are also timeless and elegant. For flowers, think deep red roses, rich purples, and stark winter whites. Adorn decor with coordinating velvet ribbons, candlelight, bare branches, and icy looking crystals.

Mood Lighting

Let our in-house AV team, AV Workshop help you create warm mood lighting for your winter wedding. Go warm for a cozy, romantic feel, or brighten up the early nights with brighter lighting. Whatever mood you want to evoke, AV Workshop is here to help!
