You’ve got the gown, you’ve booked the florist, but what about the venue? Booking your wedding venue is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when planning your wedding.Unfortunately, when it comes to selecting a venue, it can be easy to make simple mistakes that can affect your wedding day. Here are some common mistakes people make when selecting a venue.

Not Preparing For Weather

As much as we wish we could, we cannot control the weather. Unfortunately, bad weather happens and it can really put a damper on your wedding day. Make sure if you have an outdoor wedding you are prepared to protect your guests if inclement weather arrives. Or, select a venue like Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC which has both indoor and outdoor wedding space.

Bad Food

Food is an important part of any wedding or social gathering. If your wedding venue offers in-house catering, be sure to try the food and make sure you like it before you book the venue. Some venues offer limited menu options, which may leave you settling for something you don’t love.

Also, it’s important to remember that some guests will have dietary restrictions such as a vegetarian, vegan, or kosher diet, so be sure your catering team can accommodate them as well.

At Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, we offer our own in-house catering. Our team can customize your menu and our delicious food is available in a variety of options. There’s almost nothing we can’t prepare for you!

Bad Lighting

Lighting is so important for weddings. Especially for your photos. Bad lighting can ruin what should be an heirloom. That’s why it’s important to select a venue with a good mix of natural and indoor lighting.

Looking for lighting effects to change up the lighting in your venue to match your wedding colors? Make sure your venue allows you to change the colors, and has a team of professionals to install the lighting. At Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, we have our own in house AV team, AV Workshop. AV Workshop can help you customize your lighting and other electronic equipment. They know the venue, and they have the expertise to make your day run smoothly and capture the look and feel you’re going for.

Not Knowing The Venue

Another big mistake some people make is not knowing what their venue is capable of. Can their ceilings accommodate your decor? Does the venue have elevators for easy access for your guests and vendors? Are there ample places for your photographer to capture all the moments you want to remember on your big day?

At Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC we not only have an outdoor space where the sky's the limit, our indoor space has ample space for a variety of decor. Tribeca Rooftop has a 14,000 square foot rooftop terrace and 15,000 square foot interior available for your use, while Tribeca 360° has a 17,000 square foot interior space with 12 foot ceilings, so your decor can reach new heights!
