Outdoor Ceremony?

April 26, 2010

Do you want your ceremony outdoors with all the beautiful flowers in bloom and the trees and other foliage in the background? But what if it rains?

Rain isn’t the only thing to consider when planning an outdoor wedding. There are so many other elements to take into account –

Temperature – It might be too hot, too humid, too cool

Wind – We all know Chicago is not the only windy city as seen by this past week!

Sun – Is that outdoor ceremony right out in the sunshine? If so, you and your guests will have the sun beating down on you during the entire ceremony.

Soggy Turf – The sun may be shining today but has it rained for the past week? The chairs may not be able to be put on the ground due to possible sinking as guests take their seats. And don’t forget about those stiletto heels – no one wants to walk on tip toes to your ceremony!

Bugs – EEEK!

With that said, if you still want to plan your ceremony outdoors, please be sure to have Plan B in place. And more important – be sure you love Plan B as much as Plan A! We’re in Texas!

You’re engaged ~ Now what?

October 27, 2009

Start at the beginning! You’ve said YES and the next most important words you will say will be I DO. It would seem the logical place to begin is with your ceremony because without the ceremony there is no reason to party. So there are a few questions you might want to ask yourself before you start dreaming about your wedding.

1. What do you see when you walk into the ceremony? Is it in your family church? Is it in a chapel in the woods? Is it in the middle of a field? Under a canopy? At a golf course? Where you met? Everyone has a vision about what their ceremony will look like. Once you convey your thoughts to Dream Weddings, we will discover your vision and create it for you.

2. Are there portions of the wedding that will reflect your style and others that will reflect your fiance’s style?

3. Do you have religious or family traditions that you might want to consider?

4. Is there a certain season or time of day that is important to both of you?

5. Do you think you might want your wedding to be traditional, contemporary, or perhaps a combination of the two?

6. Is there someone special who you would like to perform the ceremony? I’ve seen parents perform the ceremony for either their daughter or their son – how beautiful and heartwarming!

7. Are there any particular family situations that will need to be considered?

Now let your imagination go and start dreaming…
