Come Rain or Shine

There are many couples who plan their Wedding around the seasons. Some love the idea of a Winter Wonderland setting for their special day, some prefer the warmth of a Summers eve.

However, a couple of key points to note no matter the what or when.

One of the only predictable things about the English weather is it’s unpredictability. If you have been successful in you search for a venue with outdoor space, whilst the temptation will be there to plan your wedding around an outdoor ceremony, even reception – don’t.

I always tell clients to view the outdoor space that they might have access to as an added bonus and something that, almost at the last minute, can be used if the weather allows for it.

There are of course, also general considerations for those events happening in the winter.

Where is the ceremony in relation to the main reception and dinner?

Is my ceremony venue heated?

Am I asking my guests to walk a mile from a car park in their heels – rain pounding and wind howling?

Are you the Bride, going to have to walk outside at all in your gleaming white dress?!

It’s much easier to take an event outdoors than it is to try and rush it in. Putting all of your eggs in to that one basket can leave you really disappointed on your most special of days, and that is a stress you don’t need!

So put simply, when choosing a venue, think carefully and take a half step back and take a big picture view.
