AN OUTDOOR wedding is always a picturesque option. However, there are so many choices to consider when going this route.
First, what size tent do you need?
Tents come in different sizes and first thing you will need to determine is how many tents and what size you need to accommodate the guests.
The Tent Seating Chart below, can give you a better idea.
Other things to consider when having an outdoor wedding include:
· Rain Contingency – This is the most important thing. In the case of rain, do you have a contingency plan? First, order sidewalls when ordering your tents as a backup plan in case it gets windy. Also have an indoor area as a Plan B that can be used in case of inclement weather.
· Lighting – speak with your photographer and/or videographer and confirm whether they have additional lighting facilities. You should still have beautiful pictures despite being outdoors.
· Sound System – be sure to do a site visit with your DJ so that he can walk with adequate equipment and wiring to provide a full sound system.
