Pros and Cons of the Restaurant Rooftop Proposal.The rooftop season is officially at its bloom and this is the busiest time for the rooftop bars and restaurants in the city. We have this question a lot, why should I rent a private rooftop if I can propose at the rooftop bar with no cost. So here are some pros and cons of the rooftop bar proposals. Pros 1. Location That is true that most popular restaurants and bars have prime locations. You can enjoy a stunning view, crafty cocktails, and hip ambulance. The most popular bars even offers a private dining room for a small group, where you can have your private space and enjoy a nice dinner with your friends. 2. Food and drinks Probably the main “pros” of the public rooftop proposal will be the fact that they served food and drinks and you can celebrate with the delicious meal after the proposal. You can also surprise your partner with the desert proposal, that will be unexpected and fun. 3. People Usually, for the public rooftops, there is no guest minimum, so you can invite all your friends and family for the celebration. The bar can close half of the area for your party, where you can mingle and share the proposal story. 4. No time limit When you proposing at the rooftop restaurant or bar, there no strict time limit for your celebration. The party can stay as long as they want and you can always leave early or later. Unlike, the private rooftops that have an hour rooftop rental. 5. Cost Most of the bars are asking to buy food and drinks for the party, but won’t charge you the rooftop rental cost. This might save you a couple of bucks, but keep in mind that with the drinks and food, taxes and tips its probably will be the same price. Cons 1. Privacy It goes without saying that when you proposing on a public rooftop there is no privacy there at all. Most likely the other bar guests will be sitting around with their phones pointed at you. When you choosing a private rooftop, it is only you two and maybe close family members. But there won’t be any strangers recording you on their phones or making comments about your proposal. On a private rooftop, you will have a more intimate, special moment that you and your partner will remember for years. 2. Individuality When you choosing a bar or restaurant rooftop you can not do what you want there. Space won’t allow you to decorate the area or remove the furniture from the terrace. When you proposing on a private rooftop you can be as creative as you want to be. There are no limits on your individuality. You can decorate the area with her favorite flowers, or cover the floor in rose petals and candles. Unfortunately, with the public rooftop, you will have to take the roof as it is, without any personal touch. 3. Food and Drinks You can bring your food and drinks on a private rooftop as space won’t charge you extra for that. Maybe your mom is a great cook or you have a special champagne bottle you want to open on your big day. The bar’s rooftops won’t allow you to bring outside alcohol and food or will charge you extra for that. It has to do with the restaurant health department violations and responsibilities. Plus, this is the main reason why they will rent you a space for free so that they can make a profit on the food and drinks. 4. Photography If you planning to hire a photographer to document your special day, you definitely need a private space. As I mentioned earlier, the public space won’t clear the furniture and you will end up proposing between the chairs, which is not looking great on pictures. Plus, people around you might be intimidating and you and your partner won’t be able to relax and pose for the photographer. When on a private rooftop, space is more cleared and decorated in order to provide good scenery for the pictures. Since it’s only you two and a photographer, you will feel freer to pose and look silly on a picture. 5. Emotions Marriage Proposal is definitely a big step in any relations and it is absolutely normal when one of the partners cry and shows his emotions. It is personal and sentimental and you want to feel free to express yourself at that moment. Private space gives you that opportunity. No one will shame you for crying, or make your pictures and post it online. To my mind this is one of the most important aspects of a marriage proposal, to be free to express your feelings. And for that, you absolutely need to have a private rooftop. We hope you find our ” pros” and “cons” helpful and in no matter what you decided to do, our experienced team if here to help you out. We love our private rooftop proposals and we are looking forward to creating an unforgettable marriage experience for you and your partner. Please contact us now at email@example.com and let’s start planning.

How to Propose on your own rooftop.The view is always playing an important role in the planning of the perfect proposal. New York is famous for its breath-taking skyscrapers scenery and sometimes you might be living in a building which has an outstanding terrace. So, how could you plan a proposal there? First of all, you need to make sure you can secure the space for your event. Usually, the building manager is responsible for this kind of thing, so contact him first. You need to find out if you can have a rooftop private just for you two or at least close some part of the terrace. We recently had a proposal on a rooftop, where building tenants were sunbathing while we had a marriage proposal. It was not romantic, but little intimidating. So make sure you can have the place for yourself or if not consider renting a private rooftop ( we have around 10 beautiful private spaces in the city, which is completely private and has a stunning view) After you secure the space make sure that it will be cleaned and if it has any furniture on a rooftop it will be taken away. You don’t want to propose between the chairs or next to the trash bin, so just make a note for the person in charge. It is important as it will help to navigate the mood of the event. When we do proposals on our private rooftops, we make sure that space is clean and presentable, this is the day she will remember forever, make sure it’s worth it. Now when we have a clean private rooftop its time to think of decorations. She has probably been on this rooftop so many times and saw the view so you won’t surprise with that. The best option to make a familiar place to look new and interesting is to place some outstanding decorations. We would recommend the gigantic ” Marry Me?” sign, it will bring that ” wow” factor. Also for the summer proposals use more flowers as it will bring more colors to the picture. Cover. So this is probably the hardest part as you need to convince your partner to dress up nicely and come to the rooftop. Also, it needs to be a surprise, so you need to come up with something believable. The best way will be to ask the building management to send you the ” tenants meeting” email. So that she will think it is mandatory to show up and it won’t bring any suspicious. Photographer. After you did all the preparations you need to be sure the event will be well documented. The professional photographer will make sure that you will have the pictures you will be proud to show. Our talented photographer is doing the paparazzi style pictures at first, so she doesn’t know there is someone else on a rooftop and after you get on one knee he will come closer and do more obvious pictures. Stunning pictures guaranteed. We hope you will find this information useful, but keep in mind that if you proposing on your rooftop you are responsible for the logistics of the event. it might be stressful and time-consuming so we would recommend you to consider the private rooftop rental, where all you need to do is just to show up and enjoy the moment. If you planning to propose this summer and don’t know where to start, contact us now at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +1(929) 376-9736 and our experienced team will help you to create the unforgettable marriage experience.

Best Summer Rooftop DecorationsIf you are planning to propose on a private rooftop during the summer season, you made a right choice. Summer is the rooftop time. It is magical, warm nights and fresh air – ideal for surprise engagements. But rooftop by itself, won’t make the magic, you still need to think of how to enhance your proposal. We think, that some decorations can be a key point for an ideal engagement. Here are our 5 tips for a summer rooftop decorations. 1. Real Flowers Nothing is more romantic as the real smell of the flowers. We can make a flower arch or cover the whole floor in the real rose petals or maybe you want a magnificent flower heart on the floor? The main thing is to use the real flowers and real flower petals. You would be surprised, but we had guys who were buying fake plastic petals and cover the floor with it. The look and the smell were not romantic at all. So use only REAL flowers. 2. Private table for two. Summer rooftops are ideal for a romantic dinner or champagne celebration. To enhance the moment, put the nicely decorated table with the tablecloth, champagne, and strawberries on the roof. Just imagine, she says “yes” and you two opening a champagne and calling your family. Also, what a perfect way to tell her all about your proposal planning as not with the glass and glorious view. 3. Illuminated Props If you are planning a nighttime proposal on the rooftop, you definitely need some candles and illuminated props. The more lights the better. We love using the red candles in glass vases as it looks very classic and romantic. Also, any kind of string lights and fairy lights will work. For those, who want to bring the proposal to the next level, the illuminated ‘MARRY ME?” marquee letters will make her “WOW”. Just don’t overdo it. It needs to be balanced and look stylish, as the main spot of attention should be your significant other and not the props. 4. Pictures One of the best way to see how far you came from ” dating” to ” getting married” is to make a memory walk through the pictures. Print the pictures and place it around the roof, or clip them on the wires and let them hand around. She will be touched to see all those good memories hanging there. If you want to have fun with it, we can order an Instagram picture frame and place it on a rooftop. You can start making memories right there! 5. Movie/Cartoons scene decoration For those couples, who loves ” Beauty and the Beast” or ” Friends”, just imagine how wonderful it will be to decorate the rooftop with the enchanted rose and lights from the world famous love story. If she always dreamed of being a princess, give her that chance on this special night. Prepare a princess dress, hire a musician and let the fairy tale come into your life.
