Choose a great season
Any season is perfect for garden weddings. Choosing the season is all about what you want your wedding to look and feel like. Everything can turn so beautiful, but of course, the season can dictate on the ambiance you will achieve.
You can go for summer, winter, spring or fall. The option is for you and would be husband to make.
Tip: Each of the season has its own advantages and disadvantages. That’s why it is best if you know them well before deciding when you will hold your wedding.
Make sure that everyone is protected from uninvited guests
So you know that flowers are the best friends of flowers, so expect that bees, mosquitoes and ant will come to your wedding uninvited. You have to make sure that they will not ruin your most special day. As early as possible, it is best if you discuss with your caterer and event organizers things you can do to avoid any unfortunate circumstance happen on this day. You do not want your guests to feel very uncomfortable as there are too many mosquitoes going around their legs and biting them.
You can consider a pre-event spraying or citronella candles. If you are working your wedding by yourself, it is best if you read on different tips you can read online on how to shoo away insects.
Tip: You have to ask the venue first if they allow spraying of insecticides around the vicinity before doing so. You may also want to know how they handle issues as such.
Just to be on the safer side, make yourself protected from repellant lotion or anything else you can apply on your body so insects will not come near you.
Dress the space
A garden wedding is on its own beautiful. The ambiance of a garden is enough to make your wedding very beautiful. However, it is always best that you add a personal touch on it. Try to decorate it like it is yours. Reveal your personality by adding some touch of colors you love or designs that are cool and unique.
Own it and make sure that you do not leave it as is. You may be enchanted of how it looks but needless to say, you can’t leave it as is. It may look like an ordinary garden, not too special.
If possible, or if your budget permits, hiring a designer is recommended.
When discussing with designers, make sure that you are involved with the planning as well. Letting them decide on their own is not the most ideal way. They may decide on how they want your wedding to look like and not how you want it.
Be ready for weather
To any outdoor weddings, it is necessary that you make sure that you are ready for any kind of weather. Sure, you would want it everything perfect. Thus, rain is not something you want to anticipate coming on your big day. However, you always have to be ready.
Bring pop-up tents, heat lamps, canopies, outdoor fire pits or anything else that can give your guests shelter and shade. You would not want them to get all soaked, or feel cold.
You may also want to speak with the venue on how they deal unexpected weather. True that if it rains, you won’t achieve the wedding you have planned for a long time. However, having an action plan can somehow lessen your heartaches. It is better to be prepared than be completely sorry.
Check out the space
One of the things you have to consider when choosing a venue is the space. How big is the space? Is it enough to accommodate all your guests? You sure would not want to give them a hard time. You definitely want them to feel like they can move around and be free.
Know how many people the garden can accommodate. Make sure to check their indoor facilities! It is important to know if it can accommodate your guests in case weather did not cooperate.
Enjoy different games
Another way to make your wedding happy and fun is if you incorporate fun games with it. Prepare some fun games and favors where almost everyone can participate. Ask your host for options and recommendations.
