Outdoor Wedding Essentials

As the days draw out & get warmer, outdoor weddings are on the horizon. Deciding on the location of your ceremony can be exciting so here’s a couple of tips & tricks to look out for.

Tip number one – always have an umbrella on hand.

It wouldn’t be the first time a coordinator has had to run to the bride & groom mid ceremony to save them from a downpour.

Perhaps this is stating the obvious, but if your wedding is due to take place & the weather is looking like there’s a fair chance of rainfall, it might be worth considering having a backup plan should the weather take a turn.

Tip number two – biodegradable confetti.

We here at Gellifawr love a confetti shot, dried flowers & biodegradable confetti make for such colourful & natural pictures.

Alternatively, sparklers at the end of an evening sending you off on your honeymoon make for magical memories.

Tip number three – sunglasses for your groomsmen.

Getting your groomsmen sunglasses is just the thing you need to avoid squinting in photos & not forgetting, matching sunglasses is just the icing on the cake for keeping them looking cool.

Tip number four – finding the perfect backdrop.

Taking a trip around your venue in the run up to your wedding is the perfect idea for finding your most desired locations for your photos.
