Summer kicks off the arrival of wedding season, and what better way to celebrate your special day than amidst the backdrop of over 220 sun-filled days per year, moderate temperatures, and breathtaking views? If you’re considering an outdoor wedding, don’t miss out on these invaluable tips to ensure your day unfolds flawlessly.

Indoor / Outdoor Venue
Envisioning azure skies and a gentle breeze for your outdoor wedding is the dream, but let’s face it: nature can be unpredictable. Choosing an indoor/outdoor venue for your wedding is a smart decision as it offers unparalleled flexibility and peace of mind. Consider a venue such as Red Butte Gardens, Twenty & Creek, or Wadley Farms - all of which offer both an indoor and outdoor atmosphere, perfect for the unpredictable Utah weather. By selecting a venue that offers both indoor and outdoor settings, you can enjoy the best of both worlds, creating a memorable and stress-free event that seamlessly adapts to any situation.

When it comes to decor, integrating elements that harmonize with the natural surroundings is key. Embrace the beauty of the outdoors by incorporating flowers, greenery, and organic materials like wood or stone. Infuse your personal touch with bespoke signage, monograms, or cherished photos, creating a narrative that reflects your journey as a couple. Elevate your guest engagement with interactive decor elements such as photo booths, or DIY stations, fostering unforgettable moments that enrich your celebration.

Lighting plays a pivotal role in setting the mood. Capitalize on natural daylight and embellish it with twinkling string lights, charmin lanterns, or the warm glow of candles. Consider eco-friendly options like solar-powered lights for sustainability.

Comfortable seating is essential for your guests’ enjoyment. Opt for plush sofas, cushioned chairs, or ottomans that invite relaxation. Choose furniture crafted from weather-resistant materials such as wicker, rattan, or teak to withstand the elements while aligning with your weddings aesthetic.

Light Food Options + Refreshing Drinks

When it comes to culinary delights, prioritize lighter fare over heavy dishes. Rich foods can weigh down guests, especially in warm weather, detracting from the festivities. Instead, tantalize their taste buds with refreshing options that invigorate and delight, ensuring everyone stays energized throughout the celebration.

Refreshing drinks are essential for an outdoor wedding, providing a delightful way to keep guests cool and hydrated in warm weather. These beverages not only enhance comfort but also add a touch of elegance and visual appeal to the event, with vibrant colors and beautiful garnishes that complement the wedding décor. Offering a variety of refreshing drinks, from fruit-infused waters to iced teas and lemonades, ensures that all guests, including those who prefer non-alcoholic options, have something enjoyable to sip on.

By incorporating these tips into your outdoor wedding planning, you’ll create an enchanting ambiance and unforgettable experience for you and your guests, come rain or shine!
