Outdoor weddings can be truly wonderful. There is something quite romantic and special about seeing a blue sky full of stars as you dine and dance the night away. However, You will need to be more flexible when you plan an outdoor wedding as opposed to a ballroom event. Below are a few tips to keep in mind when planning outdoor weddings and celebrations.
If at all possible, plan your outdoor wedding during a warmer month that has very little rain. Regardless of which month or which part of the country your wedding will take place in, make sure there is a back-up plan in case of inclement weather such as a comparable indoor space or a retractable ceiling on an outdoor space. Mention to guests on a website or an insert in your invitation that your celebration will be outdoors. Guests will really appreciate the heads up. Make sure to have plenty of heaters on hand as evenings can become chilly. The traditional heaters throw off more heat than the newer glass models. It is also nice to offer women Pashminas or have a collection of throws available. Remember to have a heater by Valet so that guests waiting for their cars or Uber stay warm.
