The Case for an Outdoor Wedding
Have you ever seen a wedding magazine or website that didn’t include gorgeous photos of couples walking down the aisle in nature? Barefoot brides gliding down silken aisles that are sprinkled with flower petals can be the stuff that dreams are made of for many couples. However, when planning a wedding in New England, one must consider the weather and the season. The outdoor wedding season can be quite limited, ranging from May through September. What this means is that it can be more difficult to secure a venue during this popular time frame. Even couples that plan indoor weddings book during the late spring to early fall months so they can at least get outdoor photos.
Natural landscapes can make for beautiful backdrops to exchange vows or even host a summertime outdoor reception. In some cases, an outdoor wedding can help the couple save money in the areas of decor, as the natural scenery replaces big centerpieces, garland, and other decorative pieces. However, additional costs, such as tent rentals and plan B options might make up the difference in your budget. Outdoor settings are also excellent for family-friendly weddings so the kids can run around and explore the area when they get bored instead of crying in a big hall with an echo. Consider bringing along some outdoor lawn games and getting a young adult to volunteer for babysitting duty during the celebration.
The Case for an Indoor Wedding
In Southeastern Massachusetts or Rhode Island, an indoor wedding is a must during certain times of the year. A beautiful ballroom at a premier wedding venue like Venus de Milo can fulfill every woman’s childhood dreams of an elegant princess-style wedding. However, with a banquet hall in Swansea, MA like the Venus, you can choose to decorate the facility in any style, design, color, and theme that you desire. This weather-proof option is great for weddings of any season. If outdoor photos are desired, just step outside with the photographer and then slip back in to dance the night away with your guests.
The design, decor, and lighting opportunities for an indoor venue are unlimited. Professional event planning staff can help you make smart choices for everything from linens to centerpieces. No worries about bugs, birds, or sudden thunderstorms, an indoor facility for your ceremony and wedding reception in Swansea, MA can relieve some of the stress associated with wedding planning. An indoor wedding is also more intimate. No worries about lookie-loos driving by, walking past, or just standing there taking in your wedding. Other distractions, such as traffic or cars honking, are also eliminated when you come indoors.
