Four Tips For Your Outdoor Wedding

Jul 18, 2008
As you may probably know, outdoor wedding is become more popular these days. This may probably because couple nowadays would like to seek for a less formal wedding. To this end an outdoor wedding will be just a perfect choice.

However, planning for an outdoor wedding can be a lot more difficult than planning for a traditional wedding. You have to consider something which you do not need to consider when you are planning for a traditional wedding. As a result, this article aims at giving you some essential tips when you are planning for your outdoor wedding.

An Outdoor Wedding At Home

You can have your outdoor wedding in the garden of your home. Of course in this case you will only be hosting a small wedding unless you have a really big garden at home. One of the advantages of it is that you can make your wedding a lot cheaper if you can do so. And you can also be able to make your wedding more intimate since it happens at your home. However, as mentioned, you may need to go for other options if you are going to host a big wedding.

An Informal Wedding

As discussed, an outdoor wedding is considered less formal. It will be a perfect choice for you if you personally do not like something which is too formal. If you are having your wedding on a beach, you can run on the beach with your bare foot. Yes you do not need to think about your wedding shoes if you do not want to. And the children can also enjoy in your wedding. In most cases a wedding is something boring for the children. Yet this is not the case of an outdoor wedding. It is because they can play in an outdoor environment.

Having the Ceremony and Reception in the Same Location

Usually the wedding ceremony will be in a different location from the reception venue. This can be quite inconvenient since your guest will need to travel from one spot to another. To this end you may even need to arrange transportation for your guests so that everything will be under your control. The case is totally different for an outdoor wedding. Taking the beach wedding as an example, you can have your ceremony and reception on the same beach. You can have your ceremony in the late afternoon and then your reception will be held in the beach right after your ceremony. This will also help to save money for your wedding. As a result, an outdoor wedding can be a good option for you if you are in a tight budget. Of course you will need to ensure there will be enough lighting at night otherwise your reception will become a mess.

Shelters in Your Location

If you are having your wedding in the afternoon, you have to consider the sun. Your guests will feel very uncomfortable if there is excessive sunshine. As a result, you may need shelters in your wedding so that your guests will not get sunburn. You can consider renting some marquees. They are just perfect as a kind of temporary shelter.
