I hope that you will find this article helpful, interesting, and informative. Begin your journey to Happily Ever After with an outdoor wedding set exquisitely outdoors amongst nature. Scenic venues will charm your guests by creating the perfect canvas for your picture perfect union. There are many lovely outdoor wedding locations, beach weddings, lake front weddings, forest glade weddings, mountain weddings, river side weddings, garden weddings, the options are endless! When you think of outdoor weddings you probably think of the traditional outdoor wedding where everything is held outside in a majestic garden and the sun is shining and the weather is just fantastic. Doesnt always work like that.
This seems to be the wedding of most peoples dreams, open air style, held in the glory of nature. No tents, just outside amongst the birds and the trees. To be safe in your choice of locations it is wise to choose a location that has both indoor and outdoor facilities, if possible.
That way, if the weather doesnt cooperate, your vows can still be taken without a trauma of canceling the event. At the very least, rent a tent in case of inclement weather. You can plan to have only the ceremony outdoors and the reception inside the tent (or inside with an outside portion).
In the event of inclement weather, you can simply hold the entire event in the tent you planned to have the reception in, without incurring extra costs! This is by far the most secure and least expensive way of having an outdoor wedding, and one of the easier backup plans. Even if you choose not to hold part of the reception or wedding within a tent; a tent can be used as a set up area during the wedding ceremony. In this way allowing caterers and musicians to set up out of view of the wedding party. A tent can be a resting area for people wanting out of the sun or a changing station for families with small children. Each wedding or reception held in an outdoor setting has a distinction of its own when exchanging your vows amid the scenic splendor.
When searching for that perfect location for your wedding, consider the natural beauty of a beach, forest, mountain, park or other nature area. The beauty is unharnessed. But is it the place for you? Before you make a decision and commit to an outdoor wedding you should know exactly what it entails.
