All We Ask Is That You Love Each Other And Have A Sincere Desire To Be Married


From A Garden's View

If you can't find the perfect outdoor spot in a park, maybe a garden is more your style. Imagine walking toward the love of your life surrounded by blooming beauties, the magnificent scent of fresh flowers everywhere--- romance at its best. Do you have any botanical gardens near you? Or perhaps an organic flower garden? You might want to check the phone book or maybe, a private home. A local extension office can point you in the right direction for a garden location.

A Wedding In The Park

The first place to consider for an outdoor wedding may be a park, whether local or some place you've always dreamed of. Many people do not realize the opportunities that are available through local park and recreation resources. Does you city have a park downtown? A riverside park? Maybe somewhere with a gorgeous gazebo or amazing amphitheater? Do you ever see signs for music or movies in the park? Those places are usually well equipped for weddings. Drive around or surf the web for local attractions.

Thinking Ahead When It Comes To Outdoor Weddings.

Many outdoor locations may pose their own challenges. Weather unpredictability being the biggest issue, you'll want to find a location that has many options if the weather is bad---a pavilion, a large building, or a location where a large event tent can be set up to shelter everyone in case of rain. Another big problem in the great outdoors can be pests, specifically mosquitoes. Citronella candles, lamps, and torches may be a good solution to help control the bug problem. How about trying all-natural sprays or foggers before the event to shoo away the mosquito population.

The Great Outdoors

Nothing says "GREEN" like an outdoor wedding the in the middle of nature's glory. Beautiful flowers, sunny skies, big trees full of green leaves, a lake with a waterfall in the background---how enchanting. There are so many choices, parks, botanical and organic gardens, nature preserves, and other many other welcoming sites. Barns weddings are very popular, along with a clearing in the woods by your house, along a local trail, or a park. How about the beach, a rooftop garden or how about in the middle of a pumpkin patch.

FYI: Wedding Dresses

Before Victoria times, brides did not always wear white for their weddings. Blue was the earliest color that symbolized purity and it's probably where the "something blue" line in the old rhyme came from. In many other cultures, white has never been a common wedding dress color. Norwegian brides traditional wore green, while Icelandic brides wore black. Red is commonly by Asian bides.

Where To Do Your Shopping

One way to keep costs to a minimum is by shopping at local antique stores, thrift stores and at yard sales instead of bridal boutiques and wedding super centers. You can borrow or rent items to help stay in your budget. Keep it simple. Another budget friendly idea is to get married during the week. As a rule vendors charge less on the weekdays. Have your reception earlier in the day so you don't have to provide a dinner. These are just a few suggestions to help keep your costs down. And don't forget to search the internet for more creative money-saving advice, tips and resources.
