Outdoor Wedding Tips for a DIY Bride

Planning your own wedding can be a stressful, confusing task. With seating assignments, hair appointments and dress alterations cluttering your schedule, ironing out the outdoor décor details can become a daunting task. Not to worry, we have compiled a list of outdoor wedding tips to help ease the pressure from your big day!

The DIY Bride Must Plan Ahead

Be sure to secure all of your large rental pieces ahead of time. Battling with last minute bookings and other stressed out bridzillas is sure to create a high-tension situation. With the average size of a wedding ringing in at 140 guests, you will need to arrange for proper outdoor accommodations.

Renting a large tent to shade your guests from the blistering sun, as well as creating an outdoor wedding oasis for the evening, is a must. Looking to dance the night away? Ensure your guests aren’t sinking their heels into the grass with a portable, classy wood dance floor!

And finally, providing a picturesque backdrop for photo opportunities will guarantee that each of your guests will capture a precious moment from your big day. Renting these popular items well in advance will allow for a stress free, planning experience.

Make Your Guests’ Comfort a Priority

Understand that an outdoor wedding, although beautiful, can be uncomfortable for some of your guests. Sitting outdoors for an extended period of time can cause irritability and heat exhaustion. Show your guests that you care by providing tent fans, and setting up a refreshments table.

Having large beverage dispensers filled to the brim with cold water and lemonade will decrease chances of dehydration, and keep sugar levels up. After all, a happy guest is the best!

Have a Backup Plan

Your dream wedding might take place outdoors in a lush blooming garden, but Mother Nature could have other plans. Cover all of your bases with an indoor option in case of an unexpected torrential downpour or a whirlwind breeze. Check your local weather listings leading up to your big day, and plan accordingly.
