Hi. I'm Ellie. And I'm Charlotte, and we run a wedding boutique.
Today, we're going to talk to you about how to plan your wedding. If you're thinking about having an outdoor wedding, first of all you need to decide where the outdoors is. Is it a woods on a nice sunny day, or is it a woods in the middle of winter? Is it on a beach, again destination wedding, or is it on a ski slope? We've had many weddings where people have actually got on ski slopes and then gone, obviously, into another venue to keep warm and eat their food.
So I think you need to decide on this first because it's a big, big decision. So when planning an outdoor wedding, these are all the things you need to consider. So if for example you want to get married outside in the woods, you need to work out if you actually just want to get married and have the ceremony in the woods and then maybe your venue is an open barn where you have the drinks outside and then inside, you have all the food and the dancing and everything afterwards.
So it's sort of working out if you want to have the whole of the wedding outside or if you just want to have the ceremony. But the one thing you have to consider is the weather. You know, it could rain, so you do need to have a bad weather option.
And actually if you get married in lots of these sort of stately homes and things who do offer sort of they have lots of land and they have lots of outdoor space, they will usually have a bad weather option for you. You can also get married on a ski slope as I've mentioned before which is a really romantic thing to do especially if skiing is your passion. We've done a couple of weddings where people have got married on the slopes.
But again, you need to consider your guests. They're not going to be able to dress themselves up to the nines. They're not going to be able to stay outside for very long.
So make sure you've got the Van Osho on tap when they get back in, and embrace the fact. And think about what you're going to wear. You'll need a little fur bolero or a lace bolero.
Because even in the summer, outside can still be a bit chilly especially sort of you know ten, eleven o'clock at night. So you have to you know, work out if you need to have like a little wrap or a shrug or something. And also if your bridesmaids as well.
And also let the guests know that the wedding is going to be outside. There's nothing worse than turning up to a wedding and actually being freezing. We've planned weddings before for people where they have got married in the woods and it was all about this amazing tree that was in the woodlands that they liked.
And you can use ribbons to tie around and make it like a maypole type thing. And it was absolutely beautiful and it was very personal and it was reflective of their personalities. So when you are embracing the outdoors, it is a very passionate thing to some people but it's very rustic and you know, natural, and that's what they're about.
But you've also got to consider everyone else that's taking the time to come to your wedding and make sure they understand what kind of atmosphere you're trying to create. And that's how you plan an outdoors wedding. .
