Hot To Minimize The Downsides Of Outdoor Weddings


To organize an outdoor wedding you will need preparation, foresight and a grasp for details. For instance, there isn’t much you can do about the weather, but you can work around it. Here are some guidelines for planning a great outdoor wedding.

In any case, even if you are absolutely certain that the wedding is going to take place outdoors, you should have a substitute sheltered place where to host the ceremony and the reception in the case that it starts raining, or some other circumstance forces you to move indoors.

Sometimes, certain parks or other wonderful natural areas, well suited for an outdoors wedding, are managed by an organization that does not have a lot of experience with hosting marriages. In that case, you should be extra careful to check that their side of the organization runs smoothly.

Ensure that you will have access to all the facilities that will be necessary for a great outdoor wedding. For instance, if there are no toilets you will need to rent portable ones. Bear in mind that you will need electricity, so if the outdoor wedding location is really out of the way you will have to rent a generator or two.

Nature already provides a great backdrop to most outdoor weddings, but if you want to add a couple of extra decorations it is best to do it sparsely and to let everything blend into the natural setting. Wedding arches are an exception, as these give your ceremony focus.

Wedding arches are available in many types and styles, to suit your budget, style and preferences. They are usually rugged and beautiful enough to be reused as a garden decoration after the outdoor wedding, and can be bought over the Internet at several specialized retailers.

Some extra potted or cut flowers could also be a nice addition. These can either be prepared by you, maybe with the help of your close family, or you can get a professional florist to put up the flowers for you.

It’s very important to inform attending guests that they will be going to an outdoor wedding, so that they can wear appropriate clothes. It also makes sense to send your guests a weather forecast a few days before the marriage, so that they will be aware of any expected rain.

You also need to make sure that the path to the outdoor wedding location is easily reachable, especially by people with impaired mobility. For instance, if necessary and feasible, you may want to hire a golf cart to shuttle the more elderly guests to the event.

As for the couple’s dress, it should be adapted to the situation. For the bride, high heels are to be avoided, and a dress with a skirt that doesn’t train on the ground is highly recommended. Your dress will get very dirty if you get one that is unsuitable for an outdoor wedding. is the premier resource for outdoor weddings on the Net, with updates on topics such as outdoor vows , as well as on seasonal weddings, choosing a location – click the links above to find out more!
