5 Things To Consider When Planning An Outdoor Wedding


Summer is around the corner which means more outdoor weddings. Outdoor weddings can be breathtakingly beautiful; the nature, greenery and even the sky can add a lot to a venue. But as much as outdoor weddings can be beautiful, they can also be a challenge when it comes to planning. FTK-Konnect Events came up with a few things to consider when planning an outdoor wedding.

1. Date is key 
It is essential that the wedding falls around a time where the weather is "perfect", the heat is not scorching, temperatures are not frigid and neither is it pouring rain. Your guests' comfort is of great importance. But in case any of these situations happen...

You could provide parasols to protect your guests from the sun

Wedding programs in the shape of a fan to cool them down

Or Umbrellas in case it starts pouring rain

2. Can everybody hear?
The venue also matters, is it located in an area where you have a lot of noise? Can the sound system project for everyone to hear? You want your guest to be able to hear and enjoy every word of the ceremony.

                    A venue like this requires strategic planning in terms of sound so everyone can hear

3. Outdoor weddings leave room for more creativity 
Provide insect repellent depending on the venue

4. Think of electrical needs before hand
You want the lighting and sound equipment to all be intact the day of your ceremony

5. Have a backup plan 
In case things don't go as planned. Tents could be a good idea for a backup as well. Another suggestion could be to have your ceremony outside and reception inside. Whatever you do when planning an outdoor wedding, it is always advisable to have a backup plan in case things do not go as originally planned.
