At some point in the planning process, every bride will question whether or not they want their wedding to be outdoors. After all, nature has some of the best and prettiest decor. Yet, the majority of brides will opt not to have their event uncovered outside. By having any part of the wedding ceremony outdoors, you are taking huge risks when it comes to weather. Many brides do their research, picking a month outside of rain season and looking into past years to see when the most rain hit. At the end of the day, though, there is no sure fire way to know whether your wedding will be rainy or sunny. As a result, the majority of families will take alternative action, picking a safe banquet room in a hotel or the local beach, yacht, or golf club.
Well the time for fear is over. Recently, more and more brides have been turning towards clear tents. Set up similarly to the classic white tent, the clear ones allow the bride and groom to experience the outdoors in its fullness, but eliminates the fear that slow to moderate rain fall will destroy their special day. Unlike the white tents, the clear ones allow you and your guests to experience the beauty in nature, such as sunsets and foliage, as well as human-made fun, such as fireworks and floating lanterns. Decorating is a cinch, too. Drape fabrics in your wedding colors and add lit paper or Moroccan lanterns to the ceiling. You could also go an even simpler route, layering white Christmas lights across the roof to give a soft, romantic feel to your outdoor experience. The simple decor matched with the natural splendor in nature will leave your guests in awe.
Still, if your wedding is during hurricane season, you might want to consider those safe, indoor locations. Though the clear tents add a bit of security, they won’t keep you and your guests dry in category three winds.
