Should You Have An Indoor Or Outdoor Wedding?

a tee time

Published on December 23rd, 2021

December is one of the most popular months of the year for family gatherings, which means it’s also the most popular time to get engaged. It’s also a great time for these newly engaged couples to start thinking about how, when, and where to host your ceremony and receptions as well.

Before making a final decision on venues, there are a few key questions you should ask first.

Best Indoor & Outdoor Wedding Reception Darien, IL

  1. How Many Guests Do You Want At Your Wedding?
    • Not only will you need to worry about seating at both the ceremony and reception, but also how many people you need to feed. This will also give you a great idea of how much space you’ll need for both venues. Larger weddings can be less expensive if they’re held in an outdoor location, however, you’ll need to be mindful of the weather as well.
  2. What Time Of Year Should You Have Your Wedding?
    • While spring and late fall are the most popular times to host a wedding, it’s important to not completely discount a summer or winter wedding as well. An outdoor wedding might not be ideal with more intense temperatures and weather conditions occurring during the summer or winter months. With an indoor wedding, however, you’ll still be able to celebrate no matter what the weather might be.
  3. Are You Opposed To Hosting Your Wedding And Reception In The Same Location?
    • Hosting your wedding and reception at the same location will not only save you time and travel costs, but also how many locations you’ll need to reserve. An indoor or outdoor wedding could ideally be held at the same location, but imagine how much you could save by even hosting them in the same room? Decorations, chairs, guests and more would all be well-protected from the elements. Your indoor wedding photos are more likely to look exceptional since lighting can be better controlled inside.

If you’re flexible on location as well as when you could have your wedding, then hosting an indoor wedding ceremony and reception could be the best option for you. An outdoor wedding should be considered instead if you’ve got a large number of guests that you’d like to spread out or want to host your ceremony among seasonal flora.
