Bring the Outdoors into Your Wedding Venue
Wisconsin weather can be unpredictable, no matter what time of year you plan your wedding. That’s why a plan B is a necessity.
Outdoors and Wedding Venues
One day our Wisconsin weather is hot and humid. The next day (or hour) it’s pouring. Fast forward to the next day (or hour) and it’s snowing. It’s pretty obvious that Wisconsin weather can be unpredictable, no matter what time of year you plan your wedding (tips for narrowing down your dates to your special day here). That’s why a plan B is a necessity when planning a wedding in our unpredictable temps (like a tent) OR for making your plan A, your indoor wedding venue, feel like a walk in the beautiful outdoors—a pleasant walk without fear of scorching temps, snow, or any other streaks of bad weather.
If you want to bring your outdoors in, start with your table décor. Coordinate your table décor from the tablecloths to the centerpieces for a natural atmosphere. Make sure your table décor fits with your wedding venue (tips for matching your style to a venue here); you don’t want to select rustic décor that doesn’t fit with your elegant wedding hall.
A complete outdoor atmosphere needs to be felt in every detail, including your menu. Discuss your options with your caterer, as well as serving ideas that can complete the atmosphere you’re trying to create. A good caterer can deliver delicious outdoor menu items with the presentation that completes the outdoor feel.
Make your wedding day feel like a garden even when the weather is nasty. Use vibrant floral centerpieces or sculpted topiaries around your wedding venue to bring the outdoors in—and still enjoy a cool event with air conditioning or a warm wedding in from the cold.
Whether your dessert choice is a cake or one of these scrumptious non-cake options, your wedding dessert is an opportunity to bring another outdoor touch into your big day. Even the flavoring in your cake can add another touch of the outdoors to your wedding reception.
