What to Consider Before Planning Your Outdoor Wedding

You want the day you say, “I do” to be the most beautiful day—and that includes the weather. If you’ve been dreaming about hosting your nuptials in the great outdoors, whether it be alongside a beach coastline or on rustic farmland, there are a few things to keep in mind when planning your outdoor wedding!

Tips for Planning a Tented Wedding ReceptionThe weather—of course!

This seems like the most obvious factor, but weather can quite literally make or break a wedding—if not prepared for, accordingly. You can still have your outdoor wedding and tented reception, even if it’s in the middle of a heat wave, or there are showers in the forecast. Just be sure you rent the right tent and perhaps have a Plan B.

Think about your guests’ dress code

You clearly know what you’ll be wearing as the bride and groom, but what about your guests? One of the biggest mistakes that you can make with your outdoor wedding is enforcing a dress code that the environment cannot accommodate. For example: high heels on grass or dirt? Not the best combination. If that’s the case, then consider renting a dancefloor!

Does your venue have accessible utilities?

While providing for weather and dress codes, a tent can’t do everything. You’re going to need to think about utilities—like fans or portable restrooms—to make sure the event is enjoyable! Look into if your venue has any available restrooms indoors or accessible power sources that you can utilize.

The size of your tent needs to accommodate the size of your wedding!

Even on the most beautiful days, the sun may get too overwhelming or the elements could take a turn for the worse, which is why a tent has become a necessity. A small tent will make people feel cramped, and a tent that’s too big will just feel out of place (and waste your money).
