What are the Important Things to Take Care while Planning an Outdoor Wedding?
Outdoor weddings have now become a rage in the wedding industry. They are a pretty sight because of the natural light, scenic views as well as an opportunity to turn an open area into something mesmerizing. But it’s not an easy task to curate a perfect outdoor wedding. There are certain things that should be kept in mind before planning a wedding in an open area as there are so many worries and checklists. So if you are planning an outdoor wedding, bookmark this list of things to keep in mind!
This thought is a no brainer! You really need to understand the weather condition on your wedding date. It can be a total game-changer as you have to see if it’s too sunny or it’s too cold and windy or will it rain at that time. So, be sure what arrangements should be done for the guests as per the weather.
Usage of Location
An open location can be a beachside area, riverside location, mountains or even an open lawn. If its beachside or a riverside, then you should go for pheras at the sunset and if it’s an open lawn, you can go for a whimsical setting for your wedding. Also, just think about the mandap with the mountains as the backdrop! Use your location wisely to create beautiful pictures…
Go through the Licenses
Not every gorgeous open area would be available for the wedding! There are certain licenses required to conduct a public event at a place such as music, fire hazard, alcohol and many others. If that area isn’t part of any club or hotel, then you need to ensure you have these licences in place!
Some goodies for guests’ comfort
If you are planning a summer wedding then you can keep hand fans or beach slippers if it’s a beach wedding, or maybe a shawl for winter weddings. Such goodies will surely make the guest feel special.
Special arrangements for the elderly & differently-abled
This applies to all kinds of weddings be it indoor or outdoor. You should always provide easy access for senior citizens or differently able family members to the wedding ceremony site. If it’s a tricky location, then arrange a golf buggy or some sort of transport to help them out.
It is a must thing to do. Always, have an indoor area ready as a backup if the weather goes downhill. It rains in February and sometimes, there is a sandstorm at a beach wedding. You always need to have a backup!
