You have your special day coming up soon, so that means you ideally want to have your wedding plans ironed out way in advance to avoid as many last-minute surprises as possible. Wedding planning in itself can be quite an undertaking, especially if you plan on hosting your event outdoors. There are a couple of things to keep in mind before hosting your perfect wedding, so we’ve put together some tips to make sure your wedding goes off without a hitch before you actually get hitched.

  1. Provide refreshments, snacks, and shade to keep your guests comfortable.

Of course, if you’re planning on hosting your wedding outdoors, you have to be ready to possibly bathe under the sun for an extended period of time. Depending on your weather situation, we recommend having drinks and snacks available for your guests. If possible, we also highly recommend having a couple of canopies set up over the seating areas. If the location permits, using trees as shade is also a viable option.

  1. Have an emergency weather plan set and ready.

Not only should you be prepared for the sun, but you should also have an alternate event plan in the event of unforeseen weather conditions. Although it may not always happen, unexpected weather changes can make or break your wedding. Have an indoor location or coverings ready if you live in an area that often experiences sudden rain or high winds.

  1. Go all out with your decor choice within your preferred theme!

Depending on what theme you want your wedding to be based on, having killer lighting and decor can amplify the vibe and ambiance of your wedding. You can incorporate seasonal flowers or decorations to better tie in with your outdoor setting.

  1. Have a microphone and speaker system handy.

Microphones are a necessity for outdoor weddings, especially if you plan on delivering a speech or two. Having a microphone and speaker system will help in the event of excess background noise and can accommodate guests furthest away.

  1. Kick it up a notch with live music or a DJ.

Now, if you really want to spice it up and give your wedding some extra flair, hiring live performers or a DJ can really help liven up your event. Luckily, we provide both services for your wedding!
