Planning an outdoor wedding?

There’s something beautiful &  magical about an outdoor wedding. The fresh air, natural beauty, and unique ambience create a truly unforgettable experience for you and your guests. However, planning an outdoor wedding comes with a need of food for thought. 

An outdoor wedding involves several important considerations, ranging from choosing the ideal venue to ensuring the comfort of your guests. Here are just a few tips so that you’ll be able to create an unforgettable outdoor wedding celebration that will be cherished by you and your loved ones for a lifetime.

Reflect on Your Vision: Before exploring venue options, take the time to envision your dream wedding. Consider the atmosphere, style, and overall vibe you desire. Do you picture an intimate garden ceremony, a forest garden or a beachfront affair? By understanding your vision, you can narrow down your venue choices accordingly.

Consider the Season: Different outdoor venues may shine during specific seasons. For example, a garden venue may bloom with vibrant colours in spring, while a vineyard could showcase picturesque autumn foliage. Consider the time of year you plan to tie the knot and how each venue aligns with the seasonal aesthetics you desire.

Be Weather Prepared: Mother Nature can be unpredictable, so it’s crucial to have a backup plan in case of inclement weather. Renting a tent or marquee is a wise investment that ensures you can still enjoy your outdoor celebration, rain or shine. Make sure you invest in some “Just in case ” umbrellas, to be kept hidden unless needed. Keep an eye on the weather forecast in the days leading up to your wedding and communicate the contingency plan to your chosen suppliers and guests.

Comfortable Footwear:  Let your guests know if your wedding will take place on grass, gravel, or any other uneven surface. Encourage them to choose appropriate footwear, such as wedges or flats, that will allow them to navigate the terrain comfortably. I was at an outdoor wedding in a cobbled area. Unfortunately, the wedding party hadn’t informed the female guests not to wear high heels. They would have felt comfortable if they had worn the correct footwear. Shoes can always be changed for the party later on.
