Keep Guests Warm at Outdoor Weddings

Keep Guests Warm at Outdoor WeddingsAutumn weddings can be quite glamorous and colorful leaves provide the perfect backdrop for a celebration of love.

If you’re planning a fall wedding, you need to think about how to keep guests warm as temperatures start to cool.

The Perfect Tent

If you’re looking to create a cozy atmosphere at your wedding reception, we recommend renting a frame tent with siding. The siding adds extra protection against weather conditions during the autumn months.  These tents are also not equipped with center poles, so decorating your space is much easier.

Provide Warm Transportation

If your reception venue is at a separate location from your ceremony, consider providing warm town cars with heated seats, or even a heated mini bus, for guest to use. This will not only help people from out of town but all of your guests will thank you for keep them warm in cool evening temperatures.

Warm Food and Drink

Although a “warm drink” doesn’t sound appealing, when temperatures start to cool off, guests will appreciate hot cider or hot chocolate at the door. Consider adding a splash of liquor if desired.  Host a non-traditional cocktail hour with small bowls of soup, chili, or other warm appetizers. Just before the night comes to a close, offer a hot chocolate bar. Use candy canes as stirrers and provide fun toppings such as whipped cream and marshmallows.

Cool Weather Gifts

If your wedding falls when temperatures start to fall, consider gifting hand warmers and heated socks as your wedding favors. These small gifts are thoughtful and practical. They show you care about your guests by providing them with cold weather essentials that can be used.
