3 Things to Consider When Choosing An Outdoor Venue

Newly engaged brides and grooms have a million questions, possibilities and emotions occurring all at once. Many have dreamed of their big day for years and have their wedding already envisioned inside their head. Taking those dreams and turning them into an affordable reality takes planning, assistance and an amazing venue. Dallas wedding venues are some of the most popular venues in Texas, and many brides choose to hold all or part of their wedding outdoors. Outdoor weddings can be some of the most attractive locales, but also have many considerations that brides and grooms must consider to pull of the most magical day of their lives.

 

Climate

Texas has months of appealing temperatures and sunshine throughout the year, but does have peak times when weather may be unfavorable for certain weddings. Summer can bring higher than normal temperatures and winter can bring frigid lows. When planning your wedding, consider how comfortable your guests will be in an outdoor venue. If your wedding is on the cusp of variable weather, consider having either the ceremony or reception outdoors, while having the other indoors. This not only offers a reprieve from possible weather, but offers a backup plan if bad weather does arise. Talk with your Dallas wedding planner for expert venue knowledge and coordinate your wedding for the perfect time. Remember, no matter what weather your day will be one for the history books!

Be sure to consider other considerations such as wet fields and muddy outdoor areas. If your wedding is occurring outdoors and rain is in forecast before the wedding, be sure to check and analyze the venue for soppy areas and hazards to guests and those in the wedding party. No one wants a heel stuck in the mud!

 

Venue Size

An outdoor venue offers wider space than many indoor venues, but be attentive to not over-stretch, over-indulge, or over-invite. Although you have an expansive area for your wedding, keep in mind to not have the wedding ceremony and reception too far apart and sections of each portion of the wedding within a reasonable distance. This will keep the party exciting and vibrant! Having wedding venue accessories like photo booths and party games can help make your wedding memorable, but too many trinkets and large distractions can take away from the most important part of the day, the couple.

 

Wedding Props

Many outdoor venues are a literal blank slate, which can be extremely exciting for the creative bride or groom. This also means that additional set placements will need to be rented, attained or created. Alters, runners, chairs and outdoor decor need to be considered. When choosing venues, ask the venue manager what decor and accessories come complimentary with the venue, what can be rented and what can be brought to the venue by the bridal party.
