Tips When Planning An Outside Wedding


Spring, Summer, and Fall are your seasons for an outdoor wedding. However, there are a lot of things to be aware of when planning one. Here are our 10 Tips for you when planning an outside wedding if you don’t hire a professional.

  1. Have Cooling Stations (bottled water with cute labels or water dispensers along with Fans)

  2. Offer Sunscreen at the guest sign in table

  3. Consider a tent-This offers shade for your guest especially if the ceremony is not in a shaded area

  4. Consider having an evening wedding

  5. Offer insect repellant (Skin So Soft (Avon) or OFF)

  6. The day before prep the ceremony space (check for ant mounds, etc)

  7. Make sure there is electric outlets for the ceremony music (dj, etc)

  8. Provide a basket of shades or fans (add the wedding date and these can be wedding favors)

  9. Start the ceremony on time

  10. Have a Plan B for Rain or Severe Weather

We have met several brides who want an outdoor ceremony and we recommend these things regularly. Often times brides don’t consider their guest when choosing an outdoor ceremony and we would like all the guest to be comfortable
