If you have always dreamed of a wedding in a beautiful garden or on an incredible beach, surely you have always been afraid that the weather will become your worst enemy. That is why in this post we will propose 5 tips to help you organize your outdoor wedding and win the battle against the weather. If you are still not sure about having an outdoor wedding, we invite you to know the advantages of celebrating your wedding in an open place.
Surely you have already heard everywhere that you should have a plan B, and that tents are the best tool, but the truth is that renting them can be quite expensive and not everyone likes the idea of having a sky wedding. open to later put up a tent. Even so, tents only protect from the rain and sun, but there are many other aspects that can prevent you and your guests from enjoying the wedding to the fullest, such as mosquitoes, suffocating heat or gusts of wind. For this reason, the tips that we are going to give you are small details that can make the difference between enjoying your wedding to the fullest or having a bad time. Take note!
1. Avoid the undesirables
No, we are not talking about sneaks or people who arrive without invitation, we are talking about the hated mosquitoes! Nothing worse than being at a wedding and having mosquitoes, ants or other types of insects invading the tables, so once you decide with your partner the place of the wedding, remember to make sure the site is fumigated. In addition, on the day of your event you can install anti-mosquito or anti-bug devices, so that your guests are more comfortable. If your wedding will be in a garden, you can install torches around the tables, this way you can decorate and ward off mosquitoes at the same time.
You can also use natural repellents as part of your decoration: citronella candles, rosemary, basil plants, or if possible anti-mosquito lamps.
If you are a fan of DIY you can make the natural repellent bottles using oil, lemon, rosemary and floating candles; citronella torches or if you are more creative your own candles with citronella.
2. Wedding cake for summer
If your wedding is on the beach, you should consider the high temperatures and humidity. Most of the cakes are covered with whipped cream or fondant and the most normal thing is that these melt due to the heat. or end up undone due to humidity. So be proactive and consider having other types of desserts such as ice creams, popsicles or mini cupcakes that can be kept in the refrigerator until serving time. In this way you will also avoid any type of food safety risk.
3. Be careful with the decoration
Beach weddings are also usually very windy, so if you have thought of a decoration that hangs from somewhere or a pendant light lighting, you should reconsider. It is better that you think about decoration that is safe, that is not going to blow up with a gust or that you do not have to be accommodating every 10 minutes. It is clear that the ideal would be to be able to choose the day of the wedding according to the temperature, but knowing the weather is a bit unpredictable, it is always better to be prepared.
Another important aspect of the decoration is the flowers. It is necessary to think very well about the place of the wedding when choosing the type of flowers that will decorate our celebration. If, for example, you get married on a beach, the flowers you choose will be completely different from those of a place in the forest.
Claudia Gonzalez, from Pink Workshop Floral Atmosphere, advises us on this point:
“When it comes to a beach wedding, the bride and groom, together with their florist, must choose the floral decoration according to the color and style palette they have selected for the big day. In addition, they should not forget to choose flowers that are more resistant to heat; Flowers like tulips are of course not on that list and I wouldn't suggest hydrangeas either. Fortunately we have many other options that are suitable for this case, such as orchids (cymbidium), calla lilies, roses or mini roses, carnations, of course the birds of paradise or proteas, which are now very much in trend, or you can also use foliage with large leaves, which just give it that tropical touch that you are looking for in a beach wedding. In this way we can achieve that the decoration with flowers of your wedding lasts longer and looks more beautiful”.
4. Accessories for your guests
Brides are always more or less prepared to face the weather on their wedding day, but many of them forget to make their guests totally comfortable. A good tool to achieve this are the souvenirs for the guests. During the ceremony you can offer fans for the suffocating heat or small umbrellas to cover yourself from the sun, you can also give sunglasses or hats for the men, sure that everyone will look gorgeous and stylish at the same time that they enjoy your wedding without worrying about the sun or heat.
If, on the other hand, you are going to get married in a forest or in the countryside, you have to think that the temperature usually drops at night, so it might be a good idea to give blankets embroidered with the initials of the couple.
5. Also think about your comfort
In outdoor weddings it is very important that you think of all possible scenarios and solutions to always be comfortable. This means that if you are going to get married in a ceremony in the sand, think about shoes that are not high-heeled, so that you do not bury yourself when walking, that you have a fan at hand designed especially for your bridal look in case you have to cool off a bit, also try to have your makeup on hand, since with the heat the makeup lasts much less than normal, so you will have to touch it up every two hours approximately. If, on the other hand, you get married in the country, think about having something to cover yourself with, they are very fashionable jackets for bridesThey are very pretty and at the same time they will protect you from the cold.
With these details you can plan your outdoor wedding knowing that It will be a memorable day without setbacks.
