When looking for garden wedding venues, you’ll have to choose one that satisfies your needs and requirements. Don’t pick the garden wedding venues which are said to be popular but it doesn’t seem to match your taste.
There are several types of garden wedding venues. For instance, a local garden which is any public park or perhaps a botanical garden which is the more popular option.

It’s a given – when you’re planning a garden wedding or any kind of outdoor wedding, you’ll be bound to face unpredictable weather issues. When it rains suddenly or the day is just simply too cloudy with no sun in sight.

The weather brings us to the next point: prepare a backup just incase of extremely bad weather. To have a perfect garden wedding would be close to impossible.

And if some of your guests have certain diet restrictions such as being vegan or can’t consume non-halal food, it’s best to go for wedding catering which offers more than one option so that you can cater to all your guests.
Furthermore, when you have guests who are allergic to flowers, you might want to consider hypoallergenic flowers as well.
Dealing with pests such as mosquitoes, bugs or insects is inevitable. What would be the best option to tackle these pests is to prepare bug spray, mosquito repellent, and so on. You could even place several lighted candles on every table as it is known to chase away flies.
Another thing to take note of is that certain flowers tend to attract these pests. We know you might have several types of flowers you’d like to have during your garden wedding, but be sure to pick the ones that insects or bugs hate such as lavender or chrysanthemums.
We all know the wedding dress would be the main highlight of your special occasion. Your wedding dress for a garden wedding should be picked carefully with the outdoor setting in mind. Why? Because there are various factors to consider such as your dress getting dirty from the grass or mud, as well as having to walk around the grass with high heels – that isn’t exactly ideal.
Aside from that, if your overall theme for the garden wedding is somewhat kind of a nature vibe, a white dress wouldn’t be ideal. Bear in mind, not just your own wedding dress but all of your groomsmen and bridesmaids should also match the same color tone as the overall wedding theme.
Without a question, you would have to notify your guests that you’re hosting a garden wedding. This is because they will be able to be well-prepared as outdoor weddings are slightly different from indoor weddings in terms of the way they dress, and so on.
Your wedding happens only once in a lifetime. With these tips, you’ll be on your way to hosting a wedding you’ve always dreamed of. Remember to take it easy and not stress too much! Take your time to do all the research and plan accordingly.
