If you are looking for outdoor wedding ideas, look no further. I have several ideas for your special day. You have dreamed of this day for as long as you can remember. This day should be magical, memorable and affordable. You can hold you wedding anywhere you choose but outdoor weddings are so much more beautiful and romantic. When you are planning this magical day you will have several things to consider.
First and foremost you have to consider what the weather will be like at the time of your wedding. If your wedding is planned for the middle of the summertime, then you know it will be hot. You should consider ways to keep yours guest cool. Have plenty of ice cold water bottles on hand. You could have fans passed out to the guests with the wedding couple’s names and date printed on them. They would be a wedding memento and a great way to stay cool.
If you have decided on a winter time outdoor wedding then you have the complete opposite problem. How will you keep the guest from freezing? You should remind your guest to bring a jacket or you could have a basket of gloves for the guest to grab a pair before the ceremony. Have the couple’s names and the wedding date embroider on the gloves.
I can not stress this fact enough, always and I do mean always, have a back up plan when having an outdoor wedding. No one can control the weather and that includes a bride. The best idea is to have a back up indoor location in case of rain. Usually people choose to have an indoor reception if the wedding is outdoors, and this serves as the back up location in case of bad weather.
Now for some decorating tips for outside weddings, I personally think less is more. If you have a beautiful location picked out for the wedding ceremony there really is not much you should not. If you add too much then you will subtract from the natural beauty. A few strategically placed flower arrangements and chairs for your guest.
If you have a beach wedding ceremony you may want to consider having a sound system, because the roaring waves may drown out your voices. You may want to visit the location a day before the wedding to make sure that there is no debris or trash lying all over the ground.
If you plan to have your wedding reception outside as well you will need to reconsider menu choices. If your wedding is during the summer you may want stay away from food with mayonnaise in them. You may also want to consider using bug repellent candles to keep the flies away from the food.
These are just a few suggestions for you to consider. This is your big day and the final decision is yours. The best tips I can give you is to make this day about you and the one you love. This is the beginning of your life together and this day should be happily remembered.
