EMBRACE YOUR WEDDING SEASON

Think about the types of flowers that are normally seen around the time of year when you’re getting married, for example, tulips and peonies in the spring, or dahlias and mums in the fall. There’s no rule that says you can only use flowers if they’re in season, but out-of-season blooms might be difficult for your florist to find and will generally mean a higher price tag for you in the end.

START WITH YOUR BOUQUET

Start your planning journey with your bouquet or the bridesmaid’s bouquets and work from there. Deciding on the less overwhelming blooms early and how big of a role you want flowers to play in your wedding is really helpful. You may be planning a minimalistic day, in which case your bouquet and the bridesmaid’s flowers will be all that you want. In comparison, for some brides, statement floral arrangements are the main feature of the styling. Knowing the bouquet that you’re after will then inspire the color and textures that you want, which will then seamlessly play out into the rest of the styling.

YOUR WEDDING THEME AND COLOR SCHEME

A great way to gather inspiration for your wedding flowers is pairing them with the theme of your wedding. A beach wedding may inspire traditional white blooms paired with loose and relaxed palm leaves. A bohemian wedding is your chance to be creative and modern, think wildflowers, peonies and proteas surrounded with foliage, rosemary and olive branches and earthy colors for a rustic and messy feel. If a traditional celebration is more your taste, you can’t get wrong with classic roses.

Blankets

Blankets are perfect for an outdoor wedding ceremony! Trying keep your guests cozy as the sun goes down is totally great idea! Weather can get pretty unpredictable in this period of year.

HOW TO KEEP YOUR GUESTS COMFORTABLE AT AN OUTDOOR WEDDING VENUE

Here are some suggestions that will ensure that your guests feel comfortable and enjoy the open environment.

11

LET THEM KNOW YOU ARE HAVING AN OUTDOOR WEDDING IN ADVANCE

Give your guests as much information about where the ceremony will be held, so they can tailor outfit.

ENSURE COMFORTABLE SEATS

While some guests like to stand, older people might feel most comfortable during the ceremony while seated. And it should also be kept in mind that the type of seat depends on the season of the celebration.

KEEP GUESTS HYDRATED

Certainly one of the most important things. Join the outdoor bar or be creative with cocktails, champagne and other refreshing drinks that guests will be able to use themselves.

PROVIDE SOME SHADE

If you expect a guest to spend some time outside, especially during the day, choose one of the creative ways to provide some spots in shades, or even umbrellas and gazebos.

OFFER TASTY TREATS

When choosing food, remember that guests will not sit at the table and eat so finger food fits best.

5

SUN & BUGS PROTECT

Sun and bugs are often unavoidable during outdoor weddings so be sure to provide a protection station with sunscreen and bug spray to protect your guests.

ENSURE PROTECTION AGAINST COLD

If you plan outdoor wedding venue at fresh time season it will be both nice and necessary to have some warm blankets. Although if low temperatures are predicted, renting out external heaters is a must so your guests can comfortably enjoy the event.
