Are you thinking about having your wedding and reception in a beautiful outdoor setting?
It's your day.
Have you found the venue of your dreams?
Do you know what you’ll do if it rains?
Natural beauty will lessen your need and cost to decorate.
Inquire about bug prevention or management.
Keep your vendors in the loop.
Research your rental agents.
Wear the right attire.
Is privacy important?

Have you found the venue of your dreams?

Popular dates and months fill up fast so plan ahead and book your date well in advance.

Some outdoor wedding venues offer weddings any day of the week and can be a good alternative if your Saturday date is already taken.

Friday’s and Sunday’s are becoming very popular and offer reduced rates with many vendors.

Book the venue sooner rather than later if you're inflexible to non-traditional wedding days such as a Friday or Sunday.

Always check with the venue, cancellations due occur and they may have a opening come up.

Some venues will also offer discounts for dates that are still open for the current year.
