If you are considering garden wedding venues as the site of your future nuptials, we applaud your decision. We happen to think garden wedding venues offer an outstanding opportunity for great photo memories as well as the perfect ambiance and good vibes.
However, there are some things to consider, which we will discuss in this article by Tarrant Events Center, a leading wedding venue in the Greater Fort Worth area. Call us at 817-996-3636 for more information and to arrange for a tour of our wedding venue.
The beauty of garden wedding venues
The smell and sight of fresh flowers. The feeling of a gentle breeze and warm air. The perfect, natural lighting for those stunning photographs of the special event. These are the reasons why garden weddings are so popular, and they are valid reasons. The truth is, outdoor wedding venues are probably more in demand than indoor wedding venues, and for those reasons mentioned earlier.
However, there are some harsh truths about outdoor wedding venues which must be addressed.
The downside of garden wedding venues you need to consider
This writer would be hard-pressed to accurately predict the weather one week from today, let alone twelve months from today. It is absolutely impossible to make a reservation in, say, March, for an August wedding, and have any sort of confidence in what the weather will be like in August, and there is the problem with garden wedding venues. You simply do not know if your wedding will be under sunny skies and warm breezes, or if there will be a summer rainstorm with high winds . . . or if there will be an infestation of bees or mosquitos or smoke or whatever other annoying thing is a strong possibility on any day of the year.
In other words, it’s a giant crapshoot, planning an outdoor wedding, and that means you better have a solid backup plan in place, just in case Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humor.
The perfect solution for those considering outdoor wedding venues
And what does that backup plan look like?
We suggest you shop around for an event center which offers both an indoor wedding venue and an outdoor wedding venue, something like we offer at Tarrant Events Center, With our one-acre landscaped grounds, we have a lovely setting for an outdoor wedding but, in the event that Mother Nature is kicking up her heels that day, we have the indoor venue for a sudden switch if needed.
Now, truth be told, finding an indoor AND outdoor venue, all in the same rental package, will narrow down the possibilities as you begin your search, but we believe making that effort will provide peace of mind going forward after the reservation has been made, and you can’t put a price on peace of mind, not when it is associated with such an important event.
