You’re engaged, and you’re ready to start planning your wedding. While you’re thinking about where to have your reception, you should consider an outdoor wedding. The following three reasons should help you make your decision.
You’ll save money
Reception halls, country clubs, and ballrooms can be very expensive to rent out for a wedding. When you throw an outdoor wedding, all you have to worry about are the wedding rentals. You can rent everything including dance floors, party furniture, linens, tables, and chairs. Renting these items will cost you a lot less money than booking a traditional wedding venue.
It’s naturally beautiful
When you have your wedding indoors, you have to deck it out with all your decorations to make it feel beautiful. Nature does that job for you when you have an outdoor wedding. You can get married in a garden, by a lake, near the mountains, or even in your own backyard. The greenery, sunshine, and warm breeze will be much more enjoyable than the string lights you hang up at a reception hall.
You have (almost) no restrictions
When you need to book an indoor wedding reception, you are battling against other brides for that date you want. If you have your heart set on a particular barn or country club, you may have to give up picking your own wedding date. When you have your wedding outdoors, the world is your oyster. You can plop your party furniture down wherever you want (with permission if you don’t own the space). Then, you can pick whatever date you’ve been dreaming of. You also aren’t restricted to any time frames that day. You can start and end whenever you want. Lastly, the dress code is completely up to you. You can have a black tie backyard wedding or a super casual one. There is no “event director” telling you what your guests have to wear.
More and more couples are deciding to have their wedding ceremonies outside, and it’s no wonder why. You save money by renting party furniture, it’s naturally beautiful, and you can do whatever you want. When you start planning the best day of your life, find a gorgeous outdoor space to celebrate with your friends and family. It will be a day you will never forge.
