Tips for Hosting an Outdoor Wedding in Melbourne, Florida

Let Wedding Vendors Know Your Plans

This is one of the first places to start when speaking to and selecting your wedding vendors. Outdoor settings from beaches to barns have different considerations for Photographers, Videographers, DJ’s among other wedding vendors. The wedding team at Complete Weddings + Events can help with ideas to help with your outdoor wedding planning.


Have a Backup Plan

Florida weather changes throughout the day. It may be sunny in the morning, however, by mid to late afternoon, showers and thunderstorms may arrive. This type of weather is more prevalent during the summer months. Discuss with your venue the options available in the event showers or thunderstorms show up uninvited on your wedding day. Many venues have backup interior options or tents available. Sometimes moving the time of the ceremony forward or back a little will help to avoid the rain.

Let Your Guests Know About Your Outdoor Wedding

Heat and humidity are all too familiar to your guests that live in Florida. However, your guests traveling to Florida may not think of this when selecting the appropriate attire for your wedding. Help your guests prepare by offering them some insights on what to expect with your outdoor wedding venue.
