Decks, whether constructed using plastic or composite decking, are great areas in the home to host parties or family activities or get-togethers as the outdoor is a great place to be with people and to enjoy nature as well.
One affair that could be done outdoors is a wedding event. Weddings done in the outdoors could be utterly lovely, picturesque and romantic. Outdoor weddings however aren’t as trouble-free as they might look. They may come with extra cautions and drawbacks, but careful planning will result in the wedding that one has envisioned.
Think of Everyone’s Comfort
When deciding to have the wedding outdoor, consider the month of the year, the time of the day and what the weather condition may be during that time. For instance, if the wedding is during the summer, expect it to be sunny and hot. Therefore, don’t allow your guests to be experience uneasiness and discomfort because of the heat. Make sure to strategically place seating on a shaded area, have ushers provide cool bottles of water, or hand customize fans so guests could cool and freshen themselves. Additionally, consider providing guest with sunscreen as well, and look into renting a large tent for shade and large electric fans. On the other hand, if it is going to be cold, tell your guests ahead of time to wear or bring something to keep them warm or you may want to provide lap blankets or rent out heaters that are portable.
Always Plan for a Backup
Ideally, the location of an outdoor wedding should have an indoor location as well in case the weather doesn’t collaborate. Numerous couples elect to have their wedding rite in the outdoors and their reception indoors. A large tent could be another backup plane, but is only good for rain that is light to moderate. Heavy rain will douse the soil causing it to be damp and will leave your invitees with muddy shoes.
Outdoor Sounds and Acoustics
The outdoor is wide and cannot contain sound unlike the indoors. Moreover, expect other background sound or noise coming from different directions when outdoors. For instance, having a beach wedding is something you’ve wanted. Consider the rushing sound of the wind, the rumbling of the waves, and other background noise. Rent out a sound system with clip on mikes for the wedding officiator, the bride and groom.
