Whether you want to get married on a beautiful sandy beach overlooking the water or just in your backyard, an outdoor wedding can be a wonderful occasion for everyone involved. Although, planning an outdoor wedding requires a lot of preparation and patience especially since the weather can be unpredictable. There are several tips you should follow, so your big day runs as smoothly as possible.
Prepare For The Elements
When you are planning an outdoor wedding, you need to take in consideration the weather. Always have a backup plan if it rains even if your wedding is in the middle of the summer. The best option is to have your ceremony outside and your reception indoors or under a tent. Having your reception under a tent is a great way for guests to get some shade and allows for guests to be protected from rain and high winds. If you are having your wedding in the summer or on a hot day, make sure there are plenty of fans places around the venue. Have heaters and blankets available if you are throwing your wedding during a cool fall day.
Focus On The Menu
Before picking out the specific items you are going to serve to your guests, make sure you hire a caterer that is experienced in planning an outdoor wedding menu. Serve food that can keep up well in whatever season you decide to have your wedding. If you are having a summer wedding, do not serve foods that require being chilled. Be creative with your menu and serve meals like barbecue or crabs, that you wouldn’t normally get at a formal indoor wedding. Serve plenty of water to keep your guests hydrated and have refreshing drinks like lemonade or iced tea.
Light It Up
It is likely that your reception will run into the evening time, so make sure there is plenty of lighting around so guests can see. Make sure that walkways and entrances are surrounded by lighting so guests can navigate around your reception easily. Get creative and light your space with lanterns and mason jars.
