Nonetheless, Here are a few lighting tips for the different locations at 74Wythe:
The Main Deck Lighting Options for a Wedding at 74Wythe
- Make sure to consider a simple arrangement of our String Lights suspended in a zigzagging pattern or parallel lines. String Lights are a timeless lighting design. Furthermore, we usually place our string lights under the retractable roof on the main deck. As a result, it is a great choice to enhance the main deck.
UP-LIGHTING AGAINST IRON COLUMNS
- Our company is usually a huge fan of up-lighting against walls and columns. Unfortunately, the rooftop deck offers very little wall space for up-lighting. Additionally, The iron columns on the rooftop have a floral covering that makes up-lights only visible at the bottom of each column. Furthermore, each iron column already includes an accent light similar to an up-light. As a result, Up-lights do not significantly enhance the rooftop. For this reason, we don’t recommend adding additional Up-Lights for the rooftop at 74Wythe.
LARGE HANGING FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS
- Highlight a sizeable hanging floral arrangement with a spotlight. Hanging floral arrangements are almost always a conversation piece. Therefore, any sizeable floral arrangement should be highlighted with additional lighting to remain visible after dark. Fortunately, there are better options than the in-house track lights included with the venue for illuminating hanging florals. As an alternative, consider including spotlights provided by our company to highlight any large-scale hanging floral arrangements. Alternatively, at a minimum, consider hanging string lights with your sizeable floral arrangement to ensure they remain visible after dark.
LARGE FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS (set on the bar)
- Sizeable floral arrangements are always a conversation piece. Therefore, consider providing a spotlight for them to ensure they remain visible after the sun has gone down. Thus, highlight any sizeable standing floral arrangements or sizeable florals on display on the main bar in the rear section of the venue. Similarly, highlight any sizeable florals that are on display on tables.
