If you have planned that you will have an outdoor wedding, it’s a great idea. A beach, a jungle or a farm is certainly a nice location to say “I do”. But if you are thinking that it will be easy for you than conducting your big day in a church and then celebrating reception elsewhere, you are not fully right! An outdoor wedding brings in another set of difficulties that you will have to handle. In addition to thinking on which wedding tent rental you will hire and how you will decorate the venue, there are hundred and one other matters to solve. Here are some tips for you to have an outstanding outdoor wedding.
1. Consider Weather
If you will be conducting your ceremony in the company of the Nature and Elements, you will have to consider how hot or cold it will be at your wedding, depending upon which you will have to arrange things. If your location is very hot and the sun will be pouring in, consider renting a tent. You can hire an open tent if you need only shade for you and your guests. But if you want protection from the extreme heat outside, you better rent a closed tent with an aircon fitted in. Look at the variety of tents ABCFabulousEvents.com has. You can get an extensive range of tents that are decorative and beautiful, in addition to being comfortable. Provide ample amount of cold water bottles and sunscreen to your guests to protect from hot weather.
If the weather is cold, you can rent a tent with a heater fitted in. Also, warn your guests beforehand, so that they can come prepared with layers.
2. Will it Rain?
Know if your location receives frequent rains. If it does, you will have to be even more prepared with a tent that can withstand rain and is sturdy enough so as not to flip over and has thick and weighty walls.
3. Sound System
If a beach is the location you have chosen to exchange vows, your guests will probably be hearing the roaring of waves more than your vows and speeches. Ensure to hire a good sound system with clip mikes for you two and officiant. This can be arranged easily by your DJ or band, if you are hiring them as your wedding entertainment.
Outdoor wedding has a benefit for you in form of savings on decorations, as the natural beauty around itself acts as decoration. Still, you will need to ensure that the Nature will be in full bloom on your big day, by visiting the venue about a week before the actual wedding day. If it’s very cold, you may have to hire a florist and keep flowers ready with potted bulbs. You can also include an arch or trellis, lanterns and strings of light hanging on trees, torches, luminarias, farolitas and more!
5. Keep Your Guests Hydrated Evading Alcohol
If you will be getting married in summer and in a hot place, consider evading alcohol because it is dehydrating. Instead provide plenty of sherbets, punches, juices and teas.
