The Ultimate Outdoor Wedding: How to Plan Your Wedding
It is a bride’s dream to get married in a place she has always found strikingly beautiful. Many couples choose to exchange vows in the great outdoors and enjoy its breathtaking scenery. If outdoor wedding is your thing, here are some tips and guide to help you plan your big day.
Finding the Perfect Venue
There are some things we need to think through when finding the perfect place. Firstly, do you prefer to hold your celebration in your place or do you prefer a destination wedding. Some people want to explore other places and could even go far as going overseas while some just want to stay home. If you have not decided yet, evaluate the pros and cons of all the options. If you choose to stay local, guests won’t have to travel far but the options to potential venues are limited. Weddings held further away requires a lot of effort, not just for your part but for your guests too as they need to travel, but the options for possible venues are broader too. Make a shortlist of possible venues and visit each of them, take note of what possible things you could do with each of them. You are probably thinking about hiring a venue, which has an amazing field and breathtaking view or you may be considering setting up a tent by the bay or in the meadows. Also, you might want to go unique by having your wedding celebrated in a beach or in the heart of the woods.
Sorting out Realities
When you get married indoors, you won’t have to worry about providing food for your guests or how you are able to transport them from the ceremony to the reception. But with an outdoor wedding, you have to mind these things. If you decide to hold the wedding in an isolated venue, consider how to make it work as your chosen perfect site. It is nice to be out in the wilderness and feel the fresh air, but you must have access to basic facilities. Look into options like renting out porta potty and getting in touch with catering services that are widely experienced in handling outdoor events. If the venue is too far or too difficult to go to, have transports available for your guests.
Even at the peak of summer, it’s impossible to guarantee clear blue skies. If your wedding might be ruined by the weather, make sure you have a contingency plan. Rent some gazebos or marquee for example. If the venue offer indoor and outdoor spaces, consider the rooms indoors just in case the weather takes a turn.
How amazing it is saying I do in a breathtaking backdrop? Outdoor weddings need careful planning and proper preparation.Hopefully this guide will come handy when you choose to get married outside. Choose your venue very carefully, to ensure that it is practical and provides spectacular views for the guests and for you and your other half as well.
