An outdoor wedding is an amazing idea, but the planning can be quite overwhelming. There are so many things to consider like the weather conditions, wildlife, bathroom facilities and a lot more! If you are planning to get married in an outdoor setting, here are the tips you can consider for Minneapolis Outdoor Weddings.
- Rules and permit
Determine what type of rules and permits you will be needing for planning your outdoor wedding. When you are getting married at a park in your native place, it may seem like the greatest idea ever, but you may not know that you may need some permits as there are some rules and regulations set in the first place. So, know everything before you proceed.
- Make your guests comfortable
This should be your number one priority to make sure that your venue is nicely equipped with the things such as fans, outdoor heating units, well lighted bathrooms, refreshing drinks, and citronella candles. Have a plan ready for buying or renting stuff that your venue doesn’t contain.
- BYOB or Bring Your Own Beverage
Seek an outdoor space that allows you to bring your own alcohol. This also helps in cutting down on your budget.
- Be prepared for the weather
Always be ready with the weather appropriate accessories for the bridal party and parents. You may need stuff like gloves, scarves, and strong umbrellas. You can also assign someone to be in charge to bring in the day of.
- Cover up nicely
Ensure that you have a nice jacket ready or cover up nicely in order to stay safe from the cold during the ceremony or the reception.
Discuss with your photographer about where the sun would be during the wedding ceremony so that you can plan ahead with the wedding and seating arrangements on the basis of the same. The last thing you would want is to realize that you will be hidden in the shadows or squinting in the sun in your photographs.
You can assign someone to be on the SPF duty on your wedding day so that no one ends up having a sunburn.
- Wind proof décor
If the day is windy, then you need to double check that all your décor can tolerate a very strong breeze. You don’t want the décor to fall off and cause any nuisance.
