Are you thinking about having an outdoor wedding? Have you thought about which month to possibly have your wedding? If you decide an outdoor ceremony is perfect for you, it is crucial to make sure you pick the right month so get the best weather!

Here a few tips when thinking about have an outdoor ceremony:

-Try to position your ceremony in a shaded area. It is a good idea to design your program to be large

enough to use as a fan.

-For a lovely and thoughtful gesture, have water or a refreshing non-alcoholic beverage available for your guests. Offer them pre-ceremony so that they can stay hydrated in the heat.

-After the ceremony, it is always so thoughtful to offer a basket of cute flip-flops to your guests. No matter how often you tell your girlfriends to wear practical shoes, they still wear heels.

Just in case of bugs and bad weather:
-In some areas, it is essential that you have a professional company come in and spray to keep the bugs at bay or mist with a yard guard type product before your wedding. Be sure to do so well in advance of any tableware going down on the tables.
– Since there is nothing you can do to control the weather, it is very important to come up with a back-up plan in case of inclement conditions. Walk through the weather scenarios prior to the wedding week so you and your family can mentally accept the weather plans. This way, you can go into your wedding week feeling prepared, and the weather plan will feel like less of a surprise!

– Don’t forget to have tent sidewalls on the premise in case a storm does blow through — one of the hardest things about doing an event outside is that you have to bring everything with you.
