With Spring in full swing many of our customers are opting for an outdoor wedding reception. Having your reception outdoors can add beauty and a more relaxed feel to the celebrations.
The first thing we recommend is to choose a meaningful location. The most popular choices for outdoor wedding receptions are beaches, parks, or gardens. The area you choose should be a place that is near and dear to your heart or just so beautiful you couldn’t imagine having your reception anywhere else. If no building is nearby, you might consider a tent or at least an area with a small tent in case the weather doesn’t want to cooperate. Check into table rentals and bathroom facilities too.
Another great thing about having an outdoor wedding reception is that you can use your surroundings as your inspiration for decorating. If you’re on or near the beach you can use shells and beach themed accessories to decorate the tables, etc… The food you serve could also be based on your surroundings. For example, if you are near the water offer a seafood dish.
Remember, you will need a dance floor or dance area and access to electric if you plan on having live music or a DJ at your outdoor wedding reception.
