So, you’re having an outdoor wedding? Here are some tips to help you make the most of it.
Rethinking Time of Year
The location of your wedding will be decided by the time of the year you will be holding your momentous occasion. You will certainly want to consider the changing o the seasons if you will be holding a mountain wedding. Remember, there will be Grannies and Gramps and ageing uncles and aunts who will have a very difficult time in the extremes of hot or cold. What would be the best time for your wedding? It would be a good idea to consult with your choice of venue and get some more details that can help you choose the perfect moment.
Simple is Better
If you will already be hosting your event in a pristine or picturesque location, you will not have to go all out with decorations. Just let the wonderful sights and sounds of your location do all the talking. Take a look at some of our more simplistic wedding décor that accentuates the beauty of your surroundings. This wedding decor by Supernova could be a good call. If you have already chosen a place for your wedding ceremony and reception, take some time to locate the perfect focal point around which your entire scenery can revolve. You will need to design the layout of your reception and and ceremony around this focal point.
Protecting Guests from the Sun
One important thing to remember about outdoor events is that they typically need plenty of shelters. Plan your wedding reception and ceremony in a shady area under the trees. Look for the market umbrellas are great protection from the sun and shade cloths can be strung up in strategic locations as well. This is where considering the time of day and the position of the sun can help you put up shade where it will provide the most protection for your guests.
Keeping Guests Hydrated
When guests arrive at the venue they will be tired and exhausted from their trip on foot or by car to your location. Make sure you have plenty of water to provide for your guests as they arrive.
If you will be hosting your wedding in a remote location, there is a good chance that there will be no bathroom services anywhere nearby. This is where the right selection of portable bathrooms can provide important amenities for your guests. There are many different portable bathrooms available, and it is a good idea to consider all your needs — portable bathrooms designed for those with mobility issues, for example.
There are more outdoor venues that you could shake a stick at and all of them make picturesque settings for your wedding. But a remote location can also make things very difficult for those with mobility issues and some will need an easy and safe way to get around with as little assistance as possible. Make sure that you have provided support for those with mobility issues, this could include a shuttle system to ferry guests to and from the parking lot or the closest public transportation as needed. You can also rent beach-friendly wheelchairs for the occasion. This is always an important part of wedding planning as some guests can easily become injured a day before the wedding or at the wedding itself.
