Outdoor or Indoor wedding choices! Making the right decisions…

Outdoor weddings have become increasingly popular in recent years, offering a beautiful and romantic setting for couples to exchange their vows. However, there are both positives and negatives to consider when planning an outdoor wedding, as well as important factors to consider when it comes to weather and vendor logistics.

Let’s start with the positives of an outdoor wedding. First and foremost, the natural beauty of an outdoor setting can create a stunning backdrop for your special day. Whether it’s a garden, beach, or vineyard, castle, an outdoor wedding can provide a unique and memorable experience for both you and your guests.  Another advantage of outdoor weddings is the opportunity to be creative with your décor and styling. Natural elements such as flowers, trees, and greenery can be incorporated into your wedding design, adding a touch of charm and elegance to your ceremony and reception.

Outdoor weddings also tend to be more casual and relaxed, allowing guests to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and soak up the sunshine (or moonlight!). This informal atmosphere can create a more intimate and personal experience for you and your guests.  However, outdoor weddings also have their downsides. The biggest concern is the weather. Outdoor weddings are vulnerable to the elements, and even the most carefully planned event can be ruined by rain, wind, or temperatures. It’s essential to have a backup plan in place, such as an indoor venue, to ensure that your wedding can proceed no matter what Mother Nature throws your way.

Another potential downside is noise. Outdoor weddings can be more challenging to control in terms of noise levels, especially if your ceremony is near a busy road / farm with machinery / built up areas / airport etc. You may need to consider hiring a sound system with microphone for your guests to ensure that everyone can hear your vows without distractions.  When it comes to making a decision about the weather, it’s important to consult with your wedding planner and vendors. Florists, wedding designers, and videographers will need to know whether they will be working indoors or outdoors and what kind of weather conditions to expect. Be sure to communicate with them in advance and make any necessary arrangements to ensure that they can set up their equipment and supplies on time.

In terms of timing, it’s recommended to make the weather decision at least 24 to 48 hours before your wedding. This will give you enough time to make any necessary changes to your setup and decorations, as well as inform your guests of any changes to the schedule.

Finally, it’s essential to consider the effects of wind on your outdoor wedding. Wind can wreak havoc on decorations, flowers, and hairstyles, so it’s crucial to take preventative measures. Your hairstylist and makeup artist may also need to adjust their techniques to ensure that your hair and makeup stay put in the wind for the ceremony.

In conclusion, outdoor weddings can provide a beautiful and unique setting for your special day, but it’s essential to consider both the positives and negatives when making your decision. Plan ahead for the weather, consult with your vendors, and take preventative measures to ensure that your outdoor wedding is a success.  Emd Media have a wealth of experience in both indoor and outdoor weddings.
