Suppose you have decided to have an outdoor wedding ceremony, congratulations! Links in gardens, beaches, or natural environments are always very romantic. If you want everything to be perfect, don’t miss out on these tips. I’m sure they will be accommodating.
To make sure that everything goes perfectly on your wedding day, there are some details that you should take into account when organizing the preparations for the ceremony and the outdoor banquet. These are specific things, but it is essential to remember them before planning the big celebration to avoid having to solve last-minute problems and take away some of your displeasure.
If you are having an outdoor wedding ceremony in one of the hottest months of the year, you must make sure that your guests will be well taken care of at all times and that they will feel comfortable. How? Install a table with water and juice near the ceremony’s place so that they can freshen up whenever they need to. Other fantastic ideas include placing fans, paisley, hats, and sunglasses so that they can be adequately protected from the heat and the sun. Whenever possible, try to have shaded areas as well. But, if it’s going to be calm, make sure the place where you get married has outdoor stoves that can be easily installed. And don’t forget to serve something hot that “tunes” the coldest of people.
If you’ve chosen a buffet-style banquet, make sure there are some shaded areas and seats for everyone and several support tables. Remember that this type of celebration lasts many hours and the guests should have a place to sit and be comfortable.
Yes, it is a real possibility: the weather can change and, if it rains, your whole organization can be ruined in a few minutes. To avoid this situation, it is best to ensure that the venue has alternative interior spaces where tables and decorations can be moved. Another option is to rent a large tent, which can be decorated to your liking.
It is essential to ensure that the guests will access the ceremony’s place and the banquet peacefully, either using a path, a carpet that smoothes the ground, or stairs. Also, make sure that the chairs are comfortable and the foundation is firm to prevent them from sinking into the ground. And if the dance is going to be held in a grassy area, make sure that all the guests who wish to do so can put on some practical heel protectors, which will allow them to enjoy the party without any problems.
If you are getting married in an open place, such as the countryside or the beach, guests may have difficulty hearing the officiant or family and friends’ speeches correctly because the sound is dispersed. That is why it is also essential to consider the acoustics of the place and, if necessary, equip it with a simple sound system and a rugged microphone. It will not cost you much and prevent the noise of children playing, the waves’ rumble, or the wind from preventing your voices from being heard correctly.
The advantage of getting married in an outdoor environment is that the beauty of the place itself means that not many decorations are necessary. But, even so, there are things that should be taken care of. Visit the site a couple of weeks before the big day to ensure that the lawn is in good condition and that the environment is taken care of. If necessary, add flower pots, wicker baskets with plants, and clear glass jars with flowers. Remember that the aim is to improve the appearance of the environment, not to overload it.
