How to organize an outdoor wedding

Organizing a wedding requires a lot of planning. When we talk about an open air, we need to pay close attention to details. Here are some tips:

Choose the date

When choosing the date for the wedding there are several factors that must be analyzed. For the most romantic couples, a special date like the anniversary can be a good choice. If the honeymoon is just after the wedding, the ideal climate for the destination should also be taken into account. Speaking of which, you can start thinking about the advantages and disadvantages of each season.

In addition, it is also necessary to assess which day of the week is the best option. And this can depend on the budget, since Saturday is more in demand and is usually more expensive. Do not forget to think about the distance that the guests will travel to reach the wedding. An extended holiday can be a good alternative, but keep in mind that some people may already be on a trip.

Local

Weddings in the countryside and on the beach already have a beautiful environment, so there is no need to invest so much in decoration. When choosing a two two, you need to ask the following question: what will be the required shift for each option? Do you live closer to the beach or the countryside?

Of course, it is also important to think about what your dream wedding would be like: a very green place or with your feet in the sand and the sea in the background? The time of year when the wedding will take place can also influence this choice. On the beach, for example, it can be a little more difficult to set up a Plan B for rain.

In addition to the points mentioned above, be aware that in public places it may be necessary to ask for authorization from the city hall to perform the ceremony.

If the choice is a wedding in the morning, it is possible to serve a brunch or lunch for the guests, so the party can extend throughout the day. This is a great time for those who want to make the most of the sunlight and still enjoy all the nature’s climate.

In weddings held in the afternoon, you can enjoy both daylight and a nighttime atmosphere for the party. Not to mention all the beauty of a ceremony that takes place during sunset, which, in addition to being a moment of incredible colors in the sky, still yields wonderful photos.

Even though the day has natural light, weddings at night also have their charm. Light lines are an option to make the environment more charming and bright. In addition, if guests live far away, they can move around more calmly. This is also a good option for the bride and groom who want a party that goes into the night.

Guest list

When building the guest list, know that the number of people can influence the choice of location, the type of food to be served and other expenses. So it is important to know what is the budget and style of wedding you want. A wedding with many guests may not be as expensive if it is simple. On the other hand, if it is sophisticated, even a lean guest list can have a high end value.

Stopping to think how often you see or talk to each person can help. As well as thinking about the importance it has in your life. Do not feel obliged to invite co-workers, faculty or even relatives that you do not want to be present. Think very calmly, make revisions and set a maximum number, if necessary.

Another factor is having an open conversation with the parents of the bride and groom. Will they have the freedom to invite as many people as they want or will they have a quota? Don’t forget to have a clear and open dialogue. As this is a celebration date for the bride and groom, it is important to have loved ones who are important to you.

What to serve

Knowing where the event will be held is important when deciding what will be served. You need to think about how foods will be maintained and whether they need refrigeration. The type of service offered helps in choosing the menu.

Canapés and snacks can be eaten standing, which is a good alternative for those who do not want the guests stuck to the tables. Even though it is a relaxed option, you can use ingredients and elaborate presentations to obtain a result with a more sophisticated footprint.

Another alternative is to set up a cold and hot table. The first one usually works as an entrance and can be mounted during the entire event. The second is the main meal. This is a good alternative for those who want to save on the amount of waiters.

There is also the option of defining dishes to be served ready, as it works in an à la carte restaurant. Some grooms choose to serve only one starter, main course and dessert option, while others offer alternatives for each item.

Plan B

As much as you choose to get married in a time of plenty of sunshine, when performing an outdoor wedding it is important to have a Plan B in case of rain. Time works like a lottery and there is no way to know how it will be on the chosen day. If everything goes wrong, you can choose to get married under the rain or have another solution up your sleeve.

Some open spaces also have a lounge, which is a good option to escape the rain. There is also a wide variety of tents and structures that can be set up if there is no possibility or desire to use a closed room. Another alternative is to use an umbrella for the bride and groom and all the guests.

Decoration

Vintage Garden Wedding

You already have the great advantage of having the natural beauty of the place, whether on the beach or in the countryside. Even so, it is possible to make everything more beautiful with a few touches in the decoration. Think of a palette of colors that match each other, the flowers that will be used, the top of the cake, table arrangements and all the details that can leave the event with the bride and groom’s face.

When hiring a company to do this service, explain very well how you want things. To save a little money and make everything more personal, the bride and groom can get their hands dirty and make various details, such as arrangements, decoration signs, invitations and more. Other people like parents, godparents, friends and family in general can also help in any way they can.

Dress code

This tip is far from mandatory, but it is a valid suggestion. Many guests may have doubts about the type of clothing they should wear at an outdoor wedding. To make the task easier for them, it is possible to mention in the invitation which is the most appropriate style of dress for the situation.
