Saying 'I Do' With Nature Around You

Jan 9, 2008
There is a variety of locations to choose from for couples who think tying the knot at an outdoor location is an extremely romantic thing to do. Medieval castle grounds, historic estates, beaches, parks and even your own backyard are interesting options for an outdoor wedding. What better way to ring in a new life than to get married in the lap of nature, surrounded by family ,friends and warm sunshine .Assuming of course that you would be celebrating in a location blessed with sunshine and you are having a day ceremony and not an evening one. For the latter you may have a cool breeze and shiny stars for company.

Organizing a wedding takes months of careful planning down to the tiniest detail and hosting outdoor wedding calls for a lot more effort. Weather is always a critical factor in an outdoor wedding. Where there are chances of the weather being unpredictable it is always advisable to choose a location which has both indoor and outdoor facilities. Renting a weather proof marquee as a back up would be a good idea .Sturdy marquees make excellent venues by themselves but can also serve as a catering location for the wedding brunch, lunch or dinner as the case may be or just as simple shelters against sun and rain. So, even if the weather is not kind to you, you can still go ahead and celebrate just the way you wanted to by making suitable alternate arrangements.

Outdoor locations are extremely flexible and excellent for big weddings with humungous guest lists. You will be able to accommodate everyone without suffocating them or making them trip over each other. Your guests will savor the space and fresh air and children especially enjoy outdoor events. You just need to make sure there are no safeties hazards like electric wires and pools if any are monitored by someone to ensure non-swimmers are taken care of. Outdoor wedding venues are also considered as cheaper options to hotel ballrooms and other indoor locations. You can even save on decorating and leave it to nature to provide a beautiful, scenic background for your ceremony. Just a wedding arch, strings of lights or lanterns on the trees can bring life to the venue. So for those watching their wedding budget, an outdoor location may just be the right thing to choose.

Dressing appropriately for an outdoor wedding is extremely important unless you want to spend your honeymoon nursing a cold or sunburn. Weather can play tricks on hair and make-up, so choosing what works well with Mother Nature would be wise. Ensure your wedding invitation carries a small note so your guests are not taken by surprise by sudden changes in the weather. Caterers can think up of innovative ways to present and serve the outdoor wedding menu and you can even add on ice-cream carts and chocolate fountains if you want a carnival look.

With Mother Nature on your side, a little bit of prudence, detailed planning and lots of creativity you can make an outdoor wedding truly memorable for everyone to cherish and remember.
