Planning An Outdoor Wedding? Things To Keep In Mind

Blog

You love the outdoors. Nature inspires virtually every aspect of your life. Now that you're engaged, you couldn't imagine having your wedding any place else but outside. Whether it's a park or a backyard that you adore, having your wedding outside is your perfect idea of a romantic location.

While having your wedding outside can certainly be romantic, in order to pull it off without a hitch, you have to do some careful planning. In addition to the catering, music, dance floor, and seating, there are certain elements that are essential to remember when planning an outdoor wedding. In order to make sure that your big day is a success, keep the following tips in mind during the planning process.

Shelter

Of course, the main purpose of having your wedding outside is to enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature. However, sometimes Mother Nature throws a curve ball and gives uncooperative weather. In order to ensure that you and your guests are protected from the elements should they show up uninvited, have a shelter available. Whether it is a tent or an indoor structure, having a space where you can seek shelter is important, even if you don't end up needing it – and hopefully you won't.

Keep Things Cozy

Even if you're having your wedding in the middle of the summer, there's no telling if a cold front will move in, or if there will be a chill in the air when the sun goes down. In the event of chilly weather, make sure everyone is comfortable by offering ways for your guests to stay warm. You can supply your guests with blankets and shawls, which will not only keep them warm, but they can also serve as favors. Place the blankets and shawls in baskets, or wrap them around the back of chairs and they can also add a decorative accent.

Another way you can ensure warmth is by bringing in portable heaters. Set them around the location and guests will feel comfy and warm.

Restrooms

One challenge of having an outdoor wedding is the lack of restroom facilities. Though they may not be the first thing that come to mind when planning your wedding, if the event is going to be outside, it is crucial that you remember to plan for supplying restrooms, and portable restroom rentals are an excellent solution.

These portable restroom rentals can be as extravagant as a facility inside a catering hall. Featuring several stalls, sinks with running water and even granite countertops, your portable restroom rentals can be as glamorous as your wedding.

With these tips in mind, you can plan the outdoor wedding of your dreams and ensure that you, your new spouse and all of your guests are comfortable and happy.
