A Few Helpful Hints About Planning Your Dream Outdoor Wedding
While planning an outdoor waterfront wedding, be sure to consider the setting when it comes to the décor. The wind and weather may be a factor, so you may want to be careful about having loose flower petals, candles, ribbons, or balloons adorning the aisles. Try to find windproof décor or use adhesives to secure anything breakable. You may want to consider a professional sound system to ensure the sounds of waves crashing don’t overpower your vow exchange. Scheduling your ceremony at a time when the weather is mild may be in your best interest. You could also drape a light-colored canopy over the seating area to keep your wedding party and guests cool and comfortable.
