One of the first things on the list when planning a wedding is “WHERE?” – where will you get married, where will you hold the reception? Booking your venue has always been right up there around #1 on the priority list.
Except, what if you just don’t? What if you don’t book a venue….what if you go without a venue? Well then you would be outside….hmmm outside….YES! Outside! Great idea.
Outdoor weddings are very popular right now, that’s not to say that our brides and grooms are forfeiting the finer details – they are simply taking them outdoors. And it looks A-MAZE-ING. So where outside? You might find a farm with a kindly farmer willing to let you use their property, or a local park, a secluded beach, or even your very own backyard; or for the best of both worlds you might find a fantastic venue that not only has indoor space but is also set on acreage or has fabulous lawns.
The key when heading outside, is not to forgo comfort – don’t leave your guests exposed or uncomfortable; but otherwise the possibilities are endless. You could make use of foliage for shelter, or a marquee. As for seating, you could use a set of mismatched chairs, bring the couches outside, you could go with hay bails, or even picnic rugs.
But without further a-do, here are a bunch of inspirational images for you to sink your nature-loving teeth into, and get your mind headed down the outdoor track. We’ll kick off with a few images of the lawn at our Gold Coast event, featuring Marquees contributed by Add-on Hire – and then of course the real-wedding images we all love!
Our Sunshine Coast Wedding Fair will be a great place to scope out some inspiration for your outdoor wedding, with outdoor styling to take your breath away and an outdoor ceremony setting for you to enjoy whilst playing spectator at our two fashion parades.
