Have you always enjoyed standing out in a crowd? Do you want to do the same for your wedding and have it be unique? Do you have a large barn in the family house you grew up in that you feel would be perfect for your dream vintage themed wedding? Or maybe you like outdoor weddings, but feel that all the outdoor venues are over priced and you would rather spend the money on a tropical vacation for your honeymoon and have your wedding in your family’s garden as it is huge? There are many such reasons as to why you would want to have an outdoor wedding, whether it is by choice or if you’re not willing to or cannot afford to spend too much on wedding venues. Outdoor weddings if done right, can not only be comparatively cheaper but can also be extremely romantic and intimate. Read below about what you must consider when having an outdoor wedding.
This might be one of the biggest perks of having an outdoor wedding, especially if it is going to be in your own space. You can get extremely creative with flowers and fairy lights. You can display photos and Polaroid pictures on trees around the area using string lights. Hire an ice cream cart so guests can cool off if it is a sweltering day. If your wedding will be in your backyard, make sure you have the grass mown and that the flowers are in full bloom. You can hire a florist in advance to help you with this. If you’re going to have your wedding in a barn, you can consider having the barn door hardware replaced if they are quite old but you can also have fairy lights hanging from the ceiling either vertically or horizontally and light several fragrant candles along the isle and on tables as well. This will look extremely beautiful especially at night and in your wedding photographs. You can even have a bonfire at the end of the night to celebrate with your wedding guests.
Think about your guests
Outdoor weddings can sometimes mean that you will have to deal with pesky bugs and mosquitoes. To make sure your guests are comfortable, you can hire an exterminator to take care of this about two days before the wedding and then have citronella candles lit on your big day as it repels mosquitos. You can create a photobooth for your guests by hiring barn style doors and decorating the area surrounding it so that it may serve as a rustic backdrop for their photos. You can hire a mobile cocktail bar and also have a large supply of cold bottled water so your guests will never have to feel parched, especially if it is a hot day.
Music can definitely set the mood no matter what your event is so choose a soundtrack or create a playlist that you feel is perfect for your big day. You can even include special sentimental songs in there, such as the song that was playing when you first met your partner.
