Have you been dreaming of an outdoor wedding? Making your dream wedding a reality is something we’re more than happy to help you with. Outdoor and garden weddings are extremely popular among Hong Kong brides, so if you browse through the website, you’ll find a lot of inspiration. Today, however, we’re talking about the common errors couples make when planning an outdoor wedding. These often get overlooked, especially when couples are too focused on the aesthetics of the day. Read on as early as now so you can avoid these mistakes for your special day.
(1) Underestimating the logistical needs of an outdoor wedding.
Indoor venues, like hotels and event spaces, usually come with standard amenities that you need not even think of anymore. Some of these include valet service and ample parking, a bridal suite for pre-wedding preparations, rentals, and so on. For an outdoor wedding venue, these might not all be available. You’ll have to search for other options or solutions.

(2) Not having a solid weather contingency plan.
Some venues have a readily available indoor site that you can transfer to in case the weather does not cooperate on your wedding day. However, not all venues have this option. Make sure that when you scout for outdoor venues, you have a Plan B ready, just in case, even if the venue can’t provide one for you.

(3) Disregarding the wind.
Aside from rain, wind can be a challenge for outdoor weddings. Many couples don’t realize that the wind can affect an outdoor wedding, especially your decorations. Whatever your decoration plans are, you might want to inform your wedding stylist to ensure that everything installed will be wind ready. As for your wedding hair, have an extra option as well just in case your wedding day is extra windy; an updo might be best.
