Let me share with you one of my favorite quotes, as stated in that quote, there are three key factors to achieve massive success in your life:

Don’t forget the preparation

Over the last decade, an increasing number of couples have chosen to enjoy their wedding day in nature, and we certainly don’t blame them.

An outdoor wedding combines the beauty of love and nature into a single occasion. In today’s piece, we’ll look at how you, too, can enjoy the attractions of outdoor weddings, so keep reading to learn more!

Select a Unique Location.

Is there a park, beach, or other outdoor area that holds a special place in your heart? For some, it is where they initially met, while for others, it is simply a place they enjoy visiting with their significant other. When selecting your ideal outdoor site for your forthcoming wedding, we encourage you to go outside the box. Parks, gardens, and beaches are all extremely popular possibilities. We even know a couple who married in the zoo! Of course, public sites and locations would need special licences to organise events or put up a marquee hiring in Melbourne, so always double-check the formal laws ahead of time. The choices are unlimited, so begin your search right away!

 

Make It a Relaxed Occasion.

Instead of a traditional black-tie gathering, why not make it a more relaxed affair? Outdoor venues are sometimes better suited to less formal clothes, so why not let your guests run around in semi-formal sundresses or short-sleeved shirts?

For your big day, you could even choose a dress or suit that is more appropriate for the outdoors. Instead of white gowns and tuxedos, choose a flowy flowery dress and shoes!

Ensure that basic needs are met.

One of the most difficult aspects of planning an outdoor wedding is ensuring that all of your guests’ fundamental needs are addressed. In terms of setup, you’ll need to make sure you have access to electricity, plumbing, and heating/cooling if necessary. Toilets, washbasins, signage, wheelchair ramps, and adjacent parking are other necessities for outdoor events, so always check with venue owners before determining where you will organise your perfect outdoor wedding!

Embrace the great outdoors.

If you are planning an outdoor wedding, it is critical that you embrace the outdoors. Outdoor celebrations may attract unwelcome guests such as mosquitoes and flies, and while we do not recommend prohibiting the use of insect repellent or citronella coils, we do recommend not overthinking these issues. Sure, it may be dusty, itchy, or even a little sweaty, but that is the natural and rustic aspect of spending your big day outside.

 

Utilize What Nature Has To Offer.

One of the best parts about holding your wedding on a beach, in a park, or in the local gardens is that you will have to put in little to no work to make the location appear beautiful, allow nature to do the heavy lifting for you! Beaches have beautiful oceans and sunsets, whilst parks and gardens have a variety of blooms that are in season. Not only will this establish the right tone for your special day, but you’ll also be able to save money on flowers and other high-priced decorations.

And there you have it – a few simple methods to fully embrace the rustic appeal of the outdoors for your forthcoming wedding. We hope you found this article to be interesting and that it has given you some new ideas for your big day!
