Outdoor or Indoor wedding venues…Why you don’t get the best from the two worlds?


The first thing you need to think about before you begin to plan for your wedding is whether to choose an indoor or outdoor venue. Each of them has a set of pros and cons. Therefore, you have to evaluate these two venues for you to make an informed decision. Here are some of the things you need to put into consideration while looking at each of them.

Indoor Wedding Venues

The elegant design and style of indoor wedding venues offer a fabulous feeling a look. You can enhance it with special decorations, effects, and lighting. Indoor venues have comfortable seating, flooring, and conditioning for your guests. You will also have maximum protection from unconducive weather conditions. Therefore, you won’t have to look for a back up plan because of wind, rain, or changes in temperature.

Indoor wedding venues will encourage more venue options and you will not have to worry about the effects of weather on some types of dishes. And when it comes to catering, your caterers will also have all the amenities that they require. The venues offer various rooms for various stages from a large ballroom to a banquet room. The photographer will not keep on adjusting the lenses because the light id constant. Indoor weddings are quiet, intimate, and more private than outdoor ones.

However, you will have to spend more on indoor venue decorations to give them the desired elegant effect. Some venues also have rules and regulations that will restrict you when planning for your decoration. It can also be hard and expensive to book an indoor venue during the cold months because they are on high demand. You will also not have the flexibility to invite more guests or add more space because the space has a maximum capacity. Lastly, renting an indoor wedding venue is more expensive than outdoor ones.

Outdoor Wedding Venues

On the other hand, outdoor wedding venues are already decorating with beautiful gardens that are filled with flowers and trees and in beautiful splendor. Some of them have swimming pools and waterfalls and you won’t spent a lot of money on decoration because the venues are scenic enough. Outdoor venues provide different spaces including the wedding stage, ceremony area, area for the cocktail party, and the reception space. The modern outdoor photography techniques will give you inspirational wedding photos.

Outdoor wedding spaces are open and vast and this provides a spacious atmosphere for the ceremony. You will enjoy the transformation of scenery from day to night. The decoration color and lighting effects will change when the sun sets and provide two distinct ambiance settings for your wedding.

The main drawback of out wedding is the weather. Make sure you have a backup plan in place like renting a tent if the property does not have a building. Lighting can also be challenging because there are no power sources or outlets. The high heels may get into the sand or dirt and your guests may spend the better part of the day swatting away bugs and flies.

Why You Can’t Get the Best from These two Worlds

You need to choose a wedding venue that will give you maximum benefits depending on the prevailing circumstances. You can combine the benefits of the outdoor and indoor venues by going for an open-air banquet hall and a full-service management villa. You should have a plan ‘B’ just in case the weather changes.
