Wedding Day is the most cherished day of our life which gets etched in our mind and heart for a lifetime. We just want everything to be perfect when we get into that auspicious and pure conjugal alliance with the person whom we want to live all our life with. The weddings which we witness help us understand and visualize how we would like our special and big day to be. If you are in Seattle Washington and are thinking of having an outdoor wedding and reception, read on, as we explore must do’s to have the most perfect day.
The biggest advantage of an outdoor wedding is that you can leverage on the spectacular scenery Seattle is naturally blessed with. This gives the advantage of having a breathtaking ambience which will help you get the picture perfect snapshots of the most important day of your life.
What makes Seattle such a beautiful place is its weather. So keeping that in mind by having tents or some type of structure you can move the party underneath if the weather should turn bad. By setting up tents and lighting your wedding venue can have that festive and romantic ambience and provide shelter of need be.
If your wedding is in the summer time, be sure to provide fans and portable air conditioning units. You may also want to add floor surfaces (to correct uneven ground) and wall panels (to protect against wind or rain). Since tents are virtually a blank canvas, spice things up with items like textured curtains and tiebacks, funky chandeliers, paper lanterns or twinkling lights.
Winter time is also a beautiful time for a wedding. You can still have a warm and enjoyable outdoor wedding even in the winter. Be sure to have enclosed tents and provide safe heaters and lamps. There are also fax fireplaces that can provide heat without the actual flame. Check with rental companies. Consider serving hot toddies and hot chocolate with warm desserts.
Having an outdoor wedding gives you flexibility to get creative with your menu. Under a tent you might throw a western BBQ, or a New England clambake, or even a Hawaiian luau. But you probably wouldn't even consider those options for a ballroom affair. Schedule a site visit for your caterer to make sure they are experienced in working in an outdoor setting and have the right equipment. Also keep in mind that in most cases, your caterer will need a separate prepping tent. And don't forget about the need for electricity and running water.
Words cannot do justice to the sublime beauty of weddings we witness. So, when it is your big day and Seattle is where you want it to be, make it spectacular and splendid safari of significance and let weather never play the spoilsport, rather play the smart game and plan for ahead and you can have the ultimate outdoor wedding.
