Tips and tricks for an outdoor celebration:
consider whether to provide a dress code (like cocktail attire, smart casual or fancy dress)
on really hot days, serve simple fare (sparkling drinks and savoury finger food, like fancied-up crudités, are ideal for rooftop parties)
an umbrella provides shade and helps to define an outdoor dining room
skipping tablecloths will make wind less of an issue
encourage guests to roam by setting up drinks and dessert tables in separate areas
natural raffia fans or classic accordion fans look pretty when placed in baskets and are perfect for hot weather
have mosquito repellent handy for your guests
When hiring a rooftop party venue make sure to consider:
the type of event you’re hosting (do you need a rooftop cinema for a movie night, a rooftop bar for a drinks reception or a rooftop restaurant for a corporate dinner?)
the venue’s location (does it have on-site parking and good public transport connections?)
ease of accessibility for the elderly or disabled
whether you need a contingency plan for rain
time of the event (do you need to plan it after the hottest part of the day so the sun won’t be so strong for your guests?)
lighting (decorative paper lanterns, battery-operated candles or strings of fairy lights are all fantastic options)
whether you need to hire a venue with a civil ceremony licence for your one-of-a-kind rooftop wedding
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
