Having an outdoor wedding has so many perks. Beautiful scenery, cool breezes, and fresh air to enjoy your event are all captured in some of the best wedding photos imaginable. We’re all in for outdoor weddings, but we also have some things that you should keep in mind if you’re throwing one in Kansas City . Here are our favorite outdoor wedding tips.
Think About Your Theme
When you go on your venue tours, keep your theme in mind. If you’re going for blues, maybe an open-air or wedding by a waterfront will be best for you. If you’re looking for a moody theme, consider a wedding in a forested area. Even if you don’t have a theme, really look at the space. Some wedding venues are breathtaking enough on their own, that it might actually save you on decorating and floral costs.
Wear The Right Shoes + Attire
Here’s the thing, when you think about your wedding attire, you have your attire, accessories, and shoes in mind. However, when choosing your shoes, make sure you have the wedding venue in mind. Especially what you’ll be walking down the aisle on.
For example, a wedding taking place on some sand really isn’t a great place for some high heel shoes. Choose wisely. A way to keep it cute is to buy two pairs of shoes for the big day. One for pics, and one for when you’re ready to let loose!
Have A Backup Plan
As much as we love an outdoor wedding, the weather in the Midwest can sometimes have its own plans. Our advice is to be prepared for anything. Keep the season your wedding will be taking place in mind. Plan your wedding as it would be a perfect day, but also create a backup plan in case it rains, snows, or is just unbearably hot.
Ask your venue for their plans if any of those naturally occurring events happen. The last thing you would ever want is being stuck in a downpour as you’re saying your vows.
