While you were planning your summer wedding, you decided that you wanted to have your wedding outside. As long as the weather cooperates, outdoor weddings and/or wedding receptions have many benefits over traditional indoor weddings. Of course, these events do require a little bit of extra planning (and renting) if you want your guests to have a great time.
Here are some wedding rentals and accessories you will need to make your outdoor wedding reception guests as comfortable as possible.
Provide some shade
If you’re having your wedding reception outside, then you need to make sure your guests have a break from the beating sun. Be prepared with tent rentals large enough for all of your guests, as well as caterers and event staff. While some people mistakenly believe that wedding tent rentals are only necessary for winter events, summer weddings still benefit from tents. These crucial wedding rentals ensure that intense heat and summer rains don’t put a damper on your special day.
Plenty of seating
While your guests will most likely dance all night on your dance floor rental, they’re going to need a place to sit, too. When they’re watching you recite your vows, when they’re eating dinner, and when they just need a break from the Electric Slide, make sure everyone has a place to get off their feet. Talk to your wedding rental service to find out how many chair rentals you will need.
Keep the water coming
Hydration is key for your guests to remain comfortable, so make sure you have plenty of water around for your guests. A hydration station is always a good idea; you can put out drink dispensers of chilled water, lemonade, and other non-alcoholic drinks.
Repell the pests
If you’re outside, there’s a good chance you’re going to see some bugs. If your event takes place on your own property, you should have a professional company come spray your event area about a week before the wedding. Then, during the wedding, burn citronella candles to guarantee that the bugs won’t bother your guests.
