1. Make Your Wedding Cool and Comfortable

There’s nothing worse than having a wedding and wedding reception full of uncomfortable guests agreed Orla James. They will become tired, groggy, and generally unhappy if it’s too hot and sweaty on your wedding day. They need a measure of cooling comfort to make the experience happy, fun, and memorable in a good way.

For starters, if you’re holding your wedding outdoors and it’s going to be a hot and sunny day, you should definitely provide all of your guests with sunscreen. Most people aren’t going to remember to put on sunscreen before they leave the house. And some will need more because their sunscreen will have worn off. You do not want your guests to leave your wedding reception covered head to toe in sunburn. So prepare ahead of time and have sunscreen available for everyone.

Next, you have to set up some type of a cooling room or cooling tent for all of your guests. They need a place to retreat to if the summer heat is too sweltering. Some people just cannot handle the heat, so having an air-conditioned room or tent for people to visit to cool down is definitely a good idea.

If that’s not possible, then you need to get large fans for the event. Have these fans blowing on everyone from all angles to provide relief from the scorching heat.

2. Is It Hard to Hear at Your Outdoor Wedding Destination?

Believe it or not, many soon-to-be-married couples fail to consider whether or not their guests will be able to hear everything happening during the wedding ceremony. Even if your dream wedding happens to be on a beach, you may not realize that the roaring waves in the background are going to block your voices. Your guests will be able to see everything going on, but still have no idea what the officiant or you and your better half are saying at the moment.

Consider renting a sound system for your wedding if necessary. Affix clip microphones to the officiant, groom, and bride to amplify your voices so they are heard by everyone in attendance.

3. Plan for Mosquitoes

Depending on your location, it’s quite possible to feel like you and your guests are being attacked by mosquitoes on your big day. And obviously, this is the last thing that you or anyone else wants because they want to enjoy their time at your wedding.

You can prepare by placing citronella candles and bug zappers all around the ceremony and wedding reception venue. Even better, could provide your guests with mosquito repellent on each table so they can spray themselves down and keep themselves mosquito bite free.

Final Thoughts

As you can see, there are definitely lots of things to consider when holding an outdoor wedding. You have to prepare for the heat, the bugs, and whether or not your guests can hear you over the background noise. Please use the suggestions shared today to make your outdoor wedding an outstanding success.
