Planning a wedding is equal parts exciting, stressful and wonderful. Once you have a ring on your finger and you’ve had your engagement party, you’re going to be dreaming day and night about that perfect day. There are so many decisions that need to be made, and you first need to prioritize. There’s no point in choosing the flower arrangements and centerpieces if you don’t have a venue chosen, is there? And speaking of the venue, the first thing you have to answer is: indoors or outdoors? Let’s look at the pros and cons:
Con: the weather
It’s the first thing everyone thinks about when you mention an outdoor wedding, because it’s one of the few things you absolutely cannot control. And it’s true: the weather conditions on the day can make or break a wedding. So, if you live in a place where the weather tends to change rapidly, you need to have a secondary option, like going inside or hiding under a tent. Secondly, you need to choose the right season. In some places, spring is perfect because the weather is beautiful, the flowers are blooming and it’s not unbearably hot. But if spring, where you live, is filled with showers, harsh winds, and unexpected weather swings, then you might want to consider a different season. If you’re planning a destination wedding, make sure you check the average temperatures and weather conditions at the time you’re planning the ceremony.
Pro: the scenery and view
There is just no denying it: outdoor weddings are some of the most beautiful you will ever see. Whether it’s a morning ceremony surrounded by nature that is just waking up or an evening party filled with lanterns and stars, some of the most beautiful venues are outdoors, surrounded by nature. Just by looking at the outdoor wedding venues in Sydney you can see how a combination of sea, sky, a beautiful view and a great location can make a wedding look like a fairy tale. You often don’t need too many decorations because nature is doing it for you, and if it’s a clear, sunny day you will have some of the most beautiful photos you have ever seen. If you want the security of the indoors with the beauty of the outdoors, you can consider a venue that offers you both, with the seating inside and a large outdoor space for lounging, pictures and generally hanging out.
Sure, there will be other factors that you can consider, like the pricing of the venue, the music volume, nearby areas and neighborhoods that might require the event to end early, etc. In the end, you should choose a location that speaks to you and that allows you to have the wedding of your dreams. Remember that not all outdoor venues are the same, and you should look at all of your options before making a decision. And even if the weather goes bad or the cake melts in the heat, you will still have some amazing memories and a story to tell.
