Outdoor Weddings

     As you are planning your wedding for next year, let’s talk about outdoor weddings.
New England is spectacular in the summer and fall, and occasionally in the spring with many, many beautiful outdoor venues suitable for spectacular wedding ceremonies. With mild weather and a soft, cooling breeze, outdoor venues provide stunning settings for your wedding.

     However, we live in New England about which Mark Twain said, “If you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes.” And if you are planning an outdoor wedding, here are a few things to keep in mind.
·        
  • Always have a backup plan -- even if the backup plan is umbrellas. Many venues have locations for outdoor and indoor weddings, but some do not and you must be prepared for rapid weather changes.
  • Location, location, location – that space that looked so pleasant in April may be a furnace in full sun in July. See whether there is any shade. I have spent many weddings sweltering in a black robe along with the groom and his men dressed in dark clothes. If we are having a heat wave, you may want to be indoors in air conditioning.
  • Arrange for a sound system – without one, no one sitting past the third row will hear your vows or other important parts of the ceremony.
  • Many outdoor venues are in public spaces – people will stop and watch your wedding and while majority of people are respectful, some may not be. Once while I was doing a lakeside wedding, we were buzzed by a boat full of rowdy, loud and most likely intoxicated young men. If you are looking for privacy, you may want to select a different venue.
  • Consider the topography – a long walk on a grassy surface is going to be difficult for the bride and her bridesmaids if they are wearing heels. Also, consider wheelchair access.

        With a little thought and preparation and good luck with the weather your outdoor ceremony can be everything that you want it to be.
