Holding an open-air wedding

open-air-weddingWhy not consider getting married outdoors? In a park, on a lawn, by the beach... 

Many weddings are held in the open air, mainly in spring and summer, and although it can be a beautiful way to get married, it can have its drawbacks. The main thing to remember is to be ready for anything that might happen.

Here are some tips that will help your open-air wedding run smoothly:

  • Ensure that your guests are comfortable and if it is very hot provide cool drinks, fans and parasols if necessary.

  • Make sure the venue offers some kind of shade for guests, especially when they are eating, as you do not want your guests to suffer sunstroke.

  • It is important to have a Plan B, or in other words, think about where will you hold the ceremony and the lunch if it rains or is very windy.

  • Make sure that your dress, shoes and hairstyle (and those of your attendants) are practical enough to withstand the potential hazards and weather conditions of an outdoor wedding; long trains, spike heels and elaborate hairstyles are probably off the menu for this kind of wedding.

  • If your skin burns easily, consider foundation with sunblock and put suncream on any parts of your body that are exposed to the sun, such as shoulders, arms and back, as getting sunburn on your wedding day is no fun!

  • Remember to visit the venue the day before to make sure everything is in order and to do any last minute cleaning to make sure everything looks clean and tidy.

Plan your outdoor wedding carefully and enjoy a magical day in the open-air.
