A summer wedding would ideally be preferred to be set up outdoors by most couples. These couples envision their weddings to be in the back drop of a beautiful blue sea or a summer garden of flowers. Planning a wedding requires meticulous preparation and if you decide on an outdoor function, this will require you to look in to a few extra points so that the outdoors will not suddenly steal your perfect big day.
Decide on the venue
The most important component of a wedding falls in where the venue is. It will be thoughtful if the location of your wedding suits your personal choices and desires as this is your marriage after all and the more personalized it is, the more special it will be. A vintage themed wedding would be ideal for decorations that center on wineries, which are known for its romantic environments. In this case, rustic invitations can be made to suit the theme.
Planning ahead in time
Outdoor weddings require a lot of external criteria to be looked in to in order to avoid any unpleasant mishaps on the day of the ceremony. It is vital during a summer wedding to have either cooling fans or heaters depending on the weather conditions, in case the venue does not provide an indoor seating area. Something else that is easily overlooked are the bathroom provisions at an outdoor site, so make sure these are well thought of before making the final booking of the venue. In case of an emergency, a generator or a power supply for the lighting, music and other requirements must be considered. Don’t forget to make sure that the power source does not make too much noise!
The decorations highlight the wedding and are the main attractions of the wedding apart from the couple themselves, so make sure that the theme is unique and memorable. Sending out most talented designers for wedding invitations to suit with the old, shabby and chic theme will also help guests know beforehand what kind of a theme it is likely to be. The tables can be decorated with flowers and candles that are displayed on rustic antique crystal vases that are broached.
An outdoor wedding is no doubt susceptible to natural accidents like rains and strong gushes of winds. Furthermore, other factors such as excess heat, insects like mosquitoes or flies can also be considered a likely threat to the overall success of the wedding day. However, these accidents can be greatly managed and avoided with proper planning.
