Have you been obsessed with the idea of a romantic outdoor wedding since you were a little girl? Whether it was an older cousin’s beautiful celebration that inspired your vision, or a dreamy scene from one of your favorite Rom-coms, as a newly-engaged gal, you may be asking yourself, “Now how do I make that vision a reality?” Outdoor weddings can be especially beautiful and romantic, but they can also be a bit more daunting to plan. Fortunately, if you surround yourself with experts at planning outdoor weddings, making your dreamy day a reality, is a cinch.
Hope for the Best, Prepare for the Worst Weather Feasible
One of the easiest ways to ensure your outdoor wedding goes off without a hitch, except of course the one where you marry the man of your dreams, is by choosing a venue that specializes in outdoor weddings. Whether they have indoor spaces available in case of inclement weather, a go-to vendor they recommend for renting tents to protect guests from rain, or other ways of ensuring the wedding is beautiful come rain, shine, or snow, you know you will be dealing with a staff that knows how to work with and around the weather!
Choosing a wedding planner with outdoor wedding experience is also essential, since the décor and logistics often vary widely when choosing to take your ceremony and/or reception outdoors.
A photographer with outdoor wedding samples in his or her portfolio is also a good idea. After all, you want to ensure you are painted in a beautiful light whether you end up with a day exactly as you have always imagined, or even better (because remember, whatever comes, your wedding day will mark one of the most joyous occasions of your life – enjoy it!).
