Reasons to Love An Outdoor Wedding
Valentine’s day is around the corner, and that means love is in the air and on everyone’s mind. This is the perfect time to start planning the perfect wedding. Getting started can be overwhelming, but making a decision to have an outdoor wedding can be the first step to creating the mood, memories, and magic of your special day.
Below are 7 reasons why outdoor wedding venues are the best place to say “I do.”
1) Location, Location, Location
This old phrase isn’t just for real estate. When you compare wedding venues, you want to think about what will make your space memorable for you and your guests. Having an outdoor location that can be customized to your personal preferences will make your wedding special and uniquely yours. From the decor to the layout of your ceremony and reception, no two outdoor weddings look alike. Let your creativity and care shine through by personalizing your outdoor space to reflect who you are as a couple.
2) Beauty in Every Season
Most wedding venues don’t change with the seasons, but outdoor wedding venues give you the changing beauty of nature throughout the year. Whether it’s pristine snow, spring blooms, summer sun, or autumn colors, each season sets a scene that is breathtaking and beautiful. You can take advantage of the seasonal decor you have at your fingertips when you plan a wedding outdoors.
3) Picture Perfection
Natural light is a photographer’s dream, and weddings that take place outdoors make that dream a reality. Your photos will last forever, and you don’t want them to be saturated with harsh artificial light. That kind of light can often wash out skin tones or throw shadows on faces in an unflattering way. Natural light is soft and elegant. It is unique to the moment a photograph is taken, and can’t be reproduced. Just like your wedding day!
4) Space to Roam
Having an outdoor venue means you’ll have plenty of space to set your scene. Your guests will never feel crowded into a claustrophobic room. They’ll have the ability to move freely about the grounds and experience the day in wide open spaces.
5) Theme Options
Having trouble picking a theme? Just look around your outdoor venue space to find inspiration. You can go for rustic nature, flora and fauna, or a high society garden party. You can use a cozy fire pit to create a winter scene of ice and fire, or the fall foliage to create your own harvest festival. The possibilities are as endless as the scenery around you.
6) The Elegance of the Elements
When you get married outdoors, Mother Nature will be your honored guest. Imagine a gust of wind dancing in your wedding veil as you kiss your husband for the first time. Picture a sunset made of every color of pink and orange behind you as you mingle with guests. Think about ribbon wands with your bridal colors waving in the breeze. The elements are what make an outdoor wedding whimsical and magical. Embrace them and watch them make your day something to remember.
7) Stunning Starlight
Who doesn’t want to dance under the stars? Whether you’re dancing the night away out in the open, or stepping away to take a breather, share your wedding with the romantic starry sky. Steal your spouse away for a kiss under the twinkling stars, and if you see one shoot across the sky, don’t forget to make a wish!
