Outdoor wedding ideas are easier to come by since nature will lend a huge helping hand. Any wedding is a life-changing event, but an outdoor wedding is an event that will keep your guests talking for years to come, if it is properly planned.
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.
Discuss and brainstorm outdoor wedding ideas with your partner thoroughly. With a little bit of preparation and planning you can have a successful and memorable wedding for yourself or for the person that trusted you with the preparation.
