Many couples dream of an outdoor wedding. Their union feels so natural, so being amongst nature makes sense. Besides, there’s really no backdrop or ceiling art any human can create that will come near the beauty of the great outdoors. And, you can sometimes save a little money if you hold your wedding sans a roof and walls. But, while nature is beautiful, it’s also unpredictable. That’s what you love about it! It’s complex, wild, and uninhibited—like your love! But you won’t love it if it starts to rain, snow, or hail during your vows, or if your reception is taken out by a big crashing wave. Wedding planning takes a lot of preparation. Outdoor wedding planning takes even more. Here are curveballs to prepare for if you have an outdoor wedding.
Mud on your train
