Natural beauty will lessen your need and cost to decorate.
Inquire about bug prevention or management.

Research your rental agents.
Wear the right attire.
Is privacy important?

Have a backup plan.

Do you know what you’ll do if it rains?

The perfect outdoor wedding area will have a protected area available just in case.

You’ll want to have a plan established to move under shelter if needed.

A tent is an option, but usually rain includes wind and a tent might not be the best idea.

A permanent structure such as a pavilion is more desirable.

Many brides and grooms opt to have the ceremony outside with a natural background and have the reception in a more protected area out of the direct sun or inclement weather.
