Once you make the decision not to have a church wedding you are then open to the idea of an Outdoor Wedding. This is where a number of factors come into play and you can select your venue based on the gazebo’s they have on offer, how you are permitted to style them and what season would suit this type of wedding.
More importantly you will be seeking good old-fashioned Australian outdoor elements including fresh luscious fauna with manicured gardens. Nature becomes part of the wedding backdrop. It is that spacious, fresh green feeling that you and your guests have the opportunity to experience and be part of your love story.
Whether 500 guests or 50 deciding to have an outdoor wedding is a daring proposition because it is the unknown upcoming weather conditions that you are gambling with once booked. There are many aspects that need to be taken into consideration but once executed perfectly with the help of your planner your dreams will become a reality.
Let me also quash the myth that having an outdoor wedding is cheap. This is not the case. When you start to put your own personal style and finishes, money will not be a topic of discussion.
When it comes to an outdoor wedding it is the backup plan that will be at the forefront of your mind. What if it starts to rain and that light drizzle becomes a downpour? What next?
The venue you choose will have to include your backup plan where you can move your guests inside to enjoy the ceremony and reception. If you still want to be outdoors with the rain then a marquee will need to be factored into the price. Otherwise a postponement date will need to be discussed.
These are some of the considerations that you will have to take into account and will need to be discussed with your Event Planner.
