Choosing an Outdoor Ceremony

So, you are in the process of planning your special day and haven’t yet picked a wedding venue? This decision can be very difficult, especially if you are only considering the traditional options which can be limited. Many brides and grooms focus too much on traditional church ceremonies, and forget about some of the more modern ideas like outdoor ceremonies. An outdoor ceremony in Bucks County provides so many benefits for you, your guests and the memories of your special day.

Outdoor Ceremonies Warrington Country Club

Beautiful Scenery

Of course one of the biggest advantages of an outdoor wedding is the unique scenery. If you plan your wedding reception in a beautiful garden, your view will be full of colorful plants and flowers. Our Award-Winning garden is full of lush floral accents that create the perfect setting for an outdoor ceremony. Other outdoor ceremony settings like rustic forests, sunlight beaches and serene mountains make for all memorable ceremonies. Just keep in mind the season you plan your wedding in and what the weather will be like for you and your guests. Most wedding venues will go over what the alternative plan will be if there is unfortunate bad weather.

Perfect Photos

There’s nothing like natural sunlight and a light breeze to make your wedding pictures even more beautiful. Just make sure you hire a photographer that is experienced in shooting outdoor ceremonies with variable light. No matter how the sky looks on your special day, a skilled photographer will know just how to capture the beauty of the scenery within your photos.

On-Site Decorations

A major component of planning a wedding is the decorations. Fortunately, if you choose an outdoor ceremony you have so many natural resources. Nature will provide a beautiful backdrop for your wedding venue, with not much else needed.  Also, other decorative components like a gazebo, trellis or water fountain will add an extra touch to the ceremony decor.

Relaxed & Intimate Setting

An outdoor wedding creates a more relaxed feeling compared to that of an indoor church wedding. Your guests will feel more comfortable and will be able to be social with others allowing them to enjoy the overall experience that much more. Also, if you are planning for a smaller wedding reception, garden weddings are an ideal, more intimate choice. They are generally designed for smaller weddings and your guests will be able to hear and see the ceremony much easier.

Transforms Easily  

An outdoor location not only provides a perfect setting for the ceremony but also for the cocktail hour or reception following afterwards. This allows the guests to relax more and not have to worry about where they need to go following the ceremony. Not to mention, it is one last venue or space you need to book for your celebration.

A Summer Outdoor Wedding Can Be a Dream-Come-True, With Advice from the Professionals at the Warrington Country Club

An outdoor summer wedding in Bucks County can evoke many romantic images. Bright and cheerful flowers arranged simply in vases filled with lemons and clementines, a bountiful menu Bucks-Montgomery County Wedding - Outdoor Ceremonyoverflowing with refreshing fruit and fresh vegetables, easy-breezy gentlemen sporting linen suits and perfectly manicured ladies in hot-pink sundresses topped off by wide-brimmed straw hats enjoying a cool cocktail. Sleeveless bridesmaids going barefoot and the stunning bride, wearing an elegant high-low dress (long and dramatic in the back, short and cool in the front), taking her vows as the orange sun sets behind her.

Or it can be a hot, sticky event from you-know-where.

Summer is a popular time for weddings, with approximately 37% of all weddings in the US taking place in the months of June, July and August. And, as the aforementioned summer dream wedding illustrates, summer can be a delightful time to host this most precious event. A summer wedding is not without its perils however and must be planned with the utmost care, and with the assistance of a professional, experienced with the special needs of a summer event. The staff at the Warrington Country Club are such professionals. They are knowledgeable about the planning and execution of the perfect outdoor summer wedding.

Here are a few tips to consider for a flawless outdoor summer wedding:

  1. Make a point to inform guests that lighter clothing is acceptable attire.
  2. Sunscreen is important every day, but on such a monumental day as your wedding, you will want to take extra precautions. You and your wedding party should experiment with different brands of sunscreen well in advance in order to find the correct brand that is non-greasy (to protect clothes as well as skin), non allergenic, does not have a strong aroma that could compete with the flowers (and other bridal party members) and sufficiently protects exposed skin over many hours.
  3. It goes without saying that summer is the busiest vacation time of the year. Save-the-date cards are vital when planning a summer wedding. Send out these announcements at least six month (preferably a year) in advance.
  4. Be mindful of the effects of heat and humidity on hair. Relax and let hair be hair!! Encourage your bridal party to plan a hairstyle that compliments their hair’s natural inclinations. Wavy hair will be even wavier and straight hair will want to fall flat in the heat and humidity. Advise anyone who cannot bear the thought of letting their hair be hair to consider an updo. A professional hair stylist and craft a style that is virtually impervious to any weather!
  5. Summer weather notoriously goes from sunny to stormy and back to sunny again in a matter of hours (sometimes minutes). Make sure there is adequate cover/protection should a summer storm suddenly blow in. Have decorative umbrellas available for guests should conditions unexpectedly turn soggy.
  6. Most importantly: remember that if it does rain on your big day—your marriage will be blessed with good fortune for a lifetime!
