How To Better Prepare For An Out Door Wedding

By Aaron Hu

Having a wedding out doors is a great way to make your wedding different from others in that you have many more options in decorating, games, and functions, and even the food that you serve. An outdoor wedding is a great way to add space and let nature help you have a fantastic wedding to remember. Like anything else in life, whenever you have good, you also have the bad. There are disadvantages that go along with having your wedding outside in the great outdoors as well. Here are some of the things you can expect from Mother Nature.

A great reason to have your wedding outside is the fresh, clean air and wide open spaces. When Mother Nature cooperates, there is nothing like a beautiful spring day to ensure that everyone has a great time. However, you also have more insects and mosquitoes to contend with, especially when you have all that food and people in one place. Flies are attracted to the food and perspiration if it is too hot. If you have your wedding in the evening time, you will have more mosquitoes. You will need to be careful to hold the event away from standing water such as a lake or a pond. Having your wedding outside means the extra expense of having the area sprayed a day or two before to cut down on annoying pests.

A beautiful sunny day with plenty of grass and some tables and chairs is a nice setting for your outdoor wedding. However, you have to hope that the humidity does not get too high in the summertime. You will need to keep plenty of water on hand and keep an eye on the elderly guests. Make sure that you hold your reception where there is plenty of shade, like shade trees or tents and awnings. Have a bottle of salt pills and water nearby to help anyone who shows the first signs of not sweating suddenly or those wedding bells may turn into ambulance sirens.

Having an outdoor wedding provides the opportunity to cook outside if you want to save money on your budget and have a ton of fun to boot. Unfortunately, there is really no way to tell what direction your smoke will drift throughout the day and many people are not very tolerant of smoke. You will also have an increased chance of insects and grilled food can take a lot longer to prepare which will make your wedding reception an all day affair. You will need to use paper products for the reception and there is extra equipment and trips to make carrying supplies in cars and trucks, so be prepared.

Mother Nature does what she wants to do when she wants to do it. If you plan a beautiful spring or summer wedding, you run the risk of having it either rained out or rained on suddenly and without warning. While having a tornado would make a great story to tell your future kids, it is also a very frightening and dangerous experience and someone could be injured. Lightning likes trees so you would want to move your reception quickly if the weather should turn bad.

Having an outdoor wedding has great possibilities and can be done with a little extra preparation and care on your part. If it works and nothing really goes wrong, you will be very glad that you went that way. An out of doors wedding is always a memorable and wonderful occasion that everyone will enjoy. It also allows you to be creative with spring wedding favors or even garden wedding favors if you have a garden style wedding reception.
