You might find it tempting to have a wedding in a garden or on the beach, but an outdoor wedding venue can be a real hassle. Your main focus can end up being the difficulties you face as you try to keep your wedding under control rather than all the things you enjoy. Here is why an indoor wedding ceremony venue can be preferable.
The comfort of your guests is paramount. If it's too hot or cold outside, you'll want to consider whether your guests will be able to tolerate it. Each wedding party is different, but sweating can be very distracting and take away from the fun of the event. Some couples have to postpone their weddings because the weather will not be favorable until a later date. For this reason, it may make more sense to choose an indoor wedding so that you can have the wedding at a time that is perfect for you.
There are limitations to the type of decor that you can use outdoors. Some forms of decor might be vulnerable to outdoor weather conditions. It's easier to use decorations that use electricity indoors. Also, the walls indoors can serve as a backdrop for decorations at your wedding. Also, you'll need outdoor restrooms if you'll have an outdoor wedding, and rented portable toilets are not as pleasant to use.
If you will be having a wedding outdoors, it will typically cost more. You will likely need to rent a tented area just in case your guests need protection from the sun or other weather conditions. Venues tend to be more expensive if they are outdoors. If it rains and your guests have nowhere to go, you may be forced to pay for a different venue at the last minute. Even if you follow the weather closely, a forecast can change in a manner of days.
While having a lot of space by having an outdoor wedding might seem nice, an indoor wedding venue will feel much more intimate. You won't have to worry about distractions such as cars honking horns or an airplane flying overhead. Also, indoor events are much more private.
Bugs are the worst part of an outdoor wedding. Unless you are having the event during a cold time of the year, you will need to take measures to keep bugs away so that they do not crawl on your guests.
While there are many great weddings that take place outdoors, you'll be less likely to face mishaps if you choose an indoor venue.
