Tips for planning an outdoor wedding


Wedding Trends | 07/21/2021

We all have a unique vision of how we want our wedding day to look and feel. While there are some things that seem to top most lists – a beautiful dress, friends and family, the party to end all parties – there are some things that are a little trickier.

Namely, do you dare to throw an outdoor wedding?

Here’s the thing: an outdoor wedding is a dream for a lot of people. But it does require a little more preparation, or at least some different thinking, compared to an indoor wedding.

If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry. Read on to find our top tips for planning the outdoor wedding of your dreams.

Embrace the seasons

When planning your outdoor wedding, you may not want to hold it in the summertime. That’s fine – not everyone wants the hottest day of the year when they say their vows! But if you are looking at a date at another point in the year, you can still make it work for you.

Embrace the season you’re in when it comes to decor and let nature do its fabulous thing. For example, you can decorate in pastel shades to complement bright and breezy spring weather, or go earthy for autumn. There are so many ways to decorate for the season that are fun, exciting, and totally unique!

Don’t be without a Plan B

For an outdoor wedding, we would love to imagine blue skies and bright sun, but sometimes nature has other plans. Speak to your venue about whether there is a backup option in case of inclement weather. No one wants to be standing about outside with umbrellas for hours!

Check to see if there is an indoor space they use in this case, or if you can have a marquee. Even if you never get to use it, it really is better to have it if a rainstorm strikes.

Speak up

Are you something of a quiet speaker? Remember this when booking your wedding. Indoor settings have natural acoustics which allows your voice to travel. However, when you are outside, you tend to get a lot more ambient noise and your voice does not carry as well.

Bear this in mind, as well as the number of guests who will be attending. A small group will hear you just fine, but if you are saying “I do” in front of a small army, maybe consider a microphone so you aren’t drowned out.

The right lighting

One of the positives of an outdoor wedding is that you’ll be able to use natural light for much of the day – meaning your wedding will be more eco-friendly! As the evening draws in, however, or if it is simply a grey day, it may be necessary to bring in some other lighting. Ask your venue ahead of time what the lighting situation will be to make sure there aren’t any surprises!

Another handy lighting hint – when booking your wedding photographer, ensure that they have everything they need to get the perfect shots of your outdoor wedding. You’re going to want to remember this day for years to come!
