Whether it’s the beach, the woods, or a beautiful backyard, outdoor weddings will always be a great option for you and your wedding party to host your big day.
Below are a few tips and tricks to help plan that perfect day in your perfect outdoor location.
Alert your vendors
This task should be at the top of your list. Every detail of your ceremony can be affected by the fickle weather and changing conditions. Everyone from the DJ to the caterer needs to be aware of your plans.
Utilize your natural surroundings
The whole purpose of an outdoor wedding is to celebrate the beauty of natural surroundings. Select sites that play up nature as much as possible, with fountains, gardens, or the perfect view of the sunset when you recite your vows. Consider sites where most of the decoration is already done for you by Mother Nature.
Have a plan B
In case the weather doesn’t cooperate you should always, always have a plan B. Knowing the weather forecast for the day of the wedding will only get you so far, as meteorologists have been known to be wrong on occasion, make sure that you’re prepared in case your beautiful sunny day turns into torrential rain. Outdoor wedding locations that offer both outdoor and indoor facilities are perfect options so that if the skies open up, a nice dry banquet hall is only a few steps away.
There are no set rules on matching your flowers to your location
If you are in the woods and want tropical flowers, do it! It’s your day and it’s your choice. Your flowers can add to your individual style and wedding tone. You can always choose flowers that match your surroundings, but that is not a wedding rule. It’s your day and makes those picture-perfect moments ones that you will love forever. Be bold and add your personal stamp of approval to the overall look of the event.
Having a stunning outside ceremony and reception is only a matter of a little bit of special consideration. Outdoor weddings work with any season. A beautiful fall background, a stunning beach setting in the summer, a wintery wonderland during the holidays, or a meadow of blooming trees in the spring can all set the perfect tone for any wedding. Make it yours, and always have beautiful flowers to accent your wedding colors for picture-perfect moments.
