5 Tips on Planning An Outdoor Wedding

Weddings in the time of COVID have really brought a drastic change to the facets of the wedding industry. For one, now is the best time for planning an outdoor wedding reception given the health protocols and COVID restrictions at hand.

There are many ways on how to plan an outdoor wedding, especially now that we are in the middle of the pandemic. Below is a tested and proven outdoor wedding checklist that you might want to consider and discuss with your reliable wedding planner.

When to Hire a Wedding Planner1. It is all about the setting.

An outdoor wedding reception is all about knowing the right setting for the occasion. All the more that COVID wedding planning requires to have an outdoor location, your chosen setting must be well-ventilated and in compliance with the health protocols. With this, it is highly recommended to rent a venue that is spacious and wide enough to accommodate all your guests. Speaking of which, weddings in the time of COVID also do require you to be mindful when creating your wedding guest list!


2. Choosing the right color palette is key to nailing it.

When planning for an outdoor wedding reception, you must be able to identify which mood fits your outdoor celebration. The right color palette is one of the most crucial elements in determining the right mood and tone for your outdoor wedding. Of course, outdoor weddings are best celebrated with earth and warm tones to match the color of nature/environment.


3. Consider your surroundings

Again, the rule of thumb is to have a good understanding of your surroundings. Surrounding also includes the type of guests who will be joining your outdoor wedding. Choose the type of venue, palette, and wedding theme that you and your guests will arrive at a common ground. For instance, a “strictly adult-only” type of wedding might be appropriate for a late afternoon or evening reception by the beach. On the other hand, an outdoor wedding that also welcomes guests who plan to bring their children might be best suited for an early garden wedding reception.

4. Stick to your wedding theme

Choosing the right wedding theme for you is no easy task. This requires professional advice from your trusted wedding planner. Generally speaking, planning for an outdoor wedding reception calls for professional craftsmanship of style and creativity because an outdoor wedding reception is more intricate than an indoor one. Your wedding theme directs all the other elements in your outdoor wedding checklist – from the color palette to the wedding venue. You do not want to deviate from your wedding theme by abruptly throwing in a decoration or a color family that does not match your wedding theme, right?



5. Match it with your table setting.

Of course, how can we forget the table setting? Accessorizing your table decorations should match the overall theme of your outdoor wedding. With this, we do not recommend using fragile glass accessories for an outdoor wedding because these are more appropriate for indoor, more formal settings. But instead, you can opt for simpler elements on your table settings by incorporating a splash of vibrant colors to create a statement.
