The Wise Bride’s Guide to Outdoor Weddings

Couple Enjoying a Kiss at their Outdoor Wedding in Texas Hill CountryMaybe you’ve always dreamed of an outdoor wedding under the beautiful Texas sky or maybe you’ve just recently fallen in love with the idea spending your special day in a picturesque outdoor setting. It’s no doubt that outdoor wedding ceremonies have the potential to be unforgettable . . . but thanks to unpredictable Texas weather, that “unforgettable” quality could be a bad thing. Everything from overheated guests baking in the late spring sun or an unexpected downpour soaking the wedding party, an outdoor wedding comes with certain risks. Of course, the savvy bride always follows these tips for getting the best experience from her outdoor wedding.

Accommodate Your Guests

Making sure your guests stay comfortable takes two things:

Prepare them for the weather. Out of town guests might not know that May and June in Texas can be warm and humid, so when you send invitations, let your guests know to dress for warmer weather.

Have accommodations at the ready, day of. Make sure your guests have access to cold water (a galvanized steel tub full of ice and bottled water would work for a country chic affair). You might even consider having the wedding programs double as fans.

Talk to Your Stylist

Let your hair and makeup stylist know that your wedding will take place outdoors. This will allow them to pick the right products to finish your look so everything stays in place. After all, no one wants to say their vows with stray locks of hair flying in their mouths!

Pick the Right Wedding Venue

When we created Texas Old Town back in 2004, we knew that Texas weather can change at the drop of a hat. So we made sure that each of our four unique venue sites has both an outdoor ceremony site and a climate-controlled indoor reception hall. Should bad weather strike, we’re ready to move things indoors so you and your guests can still have a great time celebrating this very special day.
