Why choose a garden wedding?
The beauty of nature
Nature is attractive and unforgettable. This will be a beautiful way to decorate your event. The sense of freedom hosting an event in the outdoors is a plus for most couples. They do not pose a restriction on the wedding theme either, so you will be free to choose a theme that reflects your personalities.
The beauty of nature acts as an amazing backdrop and with the natural lighting you can be sure of amazing shots for photographs and video.
It can be hectic to get an indoor venue that can accommodate a huge guest list. For garden weddings however, you have the freedom to expand or reduce the space so that you and your guests are comfortable.
If you are expecting a huge crowd, outdoor setting will be perfect. Remember that good air circulation is important and you do not want your guests suffocating in a crowded room. Guests with children will appreciate the space. An open air ceremony will be more fun and your guests will gladly enjoy the ceremony.
Challenges of hosting garden weddings
Difficulty finding a venue
Nowadays weddings have become the trend. Couples are getting married week after week and booking a wedding venue is now more hectic that ever. And with the popularity of outdoor weddings, trying to find the perfect venue can be frustrating and time consuming. It is therefore advisable that you start looking as early as possible. You also have to keep confirming with the management team just to make sure they do not book another couple on the same date as you.
Harsh weather conditions are the biggest destroyers of outdoor events. Unpredictable weather conditions can really create havoc on your big day. However if you are passionate about having garden wedding, you can have your guests sit under tents. This way they will be protected from the wind, sun or rain depending on the weather situation.
Despite the merits and demerits covered above, being keen to details and perfect planning will give you the wedding of your dreams.
