Rooftop Design / September 9, 2018 / Juan M. Tate
What else should you think about when planning a rooftop wedding? For a sunny afternoon you may wish to provide a shady tent where guests can get out of the direct sun. Depending on what is already in place you can choose virtually any style of decorations from garden style to contemporary. Last but not least dont forget to have your photographer take plenty of pictures of everyone with the stunning view in the background.
There are times when space becomes limited. And for some people (especially residents that are housed in backyard less houses) sometimes an empty roof can become an outlet for other leisurely interests (can also recreated into an outdoor space for accommodating guests) or hobbys. Now as for gardeners the top area of their apartment or any other high-rise theyre in can then be converted into rooftop gardens. There are a lot of rooftops that are rarely developed into something more useful thats why a lot of people are getting more creative and more resourceful when it comes to space constraints (thus the evolution of green roofs for healthy cities).
If you opt to have your ceremony on a roof set up your altar fairly close to one edge so that your guests will see the stunning backdrop behind you as you exchange your vows. It is easy to create an aisle simply by the way in which you arrange the chairs for ceremony seating. When having a ceremony in a location with no altar or obvious focal point it is important to create one to draw the eye. In a Jewish wedding there will be a chuppah which will serve that purpose. For couples of other faiths or secular ceremonies there are plenty of other great options. You could stand on a platform with tall potted trees on each side. Or cover an arbor with flowers and greenery for a rooftop garden wedding. Another idea is to suspend a piece of beautiful fabric behind the altar space with a table in front to define the area.
