Wedding Planning Tip: Plan for Wind With Outdoor Weddings
Wedding Tip from the Pros: With outdoor weddings, batten down the hatches
Everyone loves an outdoor wedding, but with outdoor weddings comes the elements and in particular, the wind. Don’t ever forget the wind because it can turn your best ideas to dust.
Make sure to do a walk through of the venue and see what the wind is like before you finalize the design for your tables and decor. You may need to rethink items like tall glass centerpieces or figure out ways to weigh down lighter paper items like seating cards, menus, and table numbers.
And if you decide to go with a potentially iffy idea, have a backup plan in case it doesn’t work on the day of.
