The arrival of summer means more wedding invitations. More people get married in June than any other month. If you’re planning an outdoor wedding this summer or any other time of year, you may be worried about changes in the weather. Here are tips for dealing with the weather at an outdoor wedding.

Maintain Flexibility

Even if you’re getting married in the middle of summer, the weather can change at any time. That’s why you must maintain flexibility in the space you have for your wedding. Your local country club is a perfect opportunity to have your event in a place that is beautiful indoors and outdoors. Create a plan to have the ceremony outside or inside if the weather changes.

Use a Place With Scenic Views Anywhere

Your local country club at Deerfield has the best views all over. Even if your event is rained out, moving the ceremony inside won’t prevent a beautiful view for photos. In other words, even if you have part or all of the ceremony indoors, you won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything. The backdrop will still be spectacular.

Create a Backup Plan

You can always plan to have your full wedding outside but have a contingency plan to quickly move things inside as needed. Between your wedding planner and the country club staff, you can run through a plan on what to expect during adverse weather conditions. That way, if rain or wind is predicted, the wedding team can set up a tent outside or keep everything inside.

Use Tents

Sometimes, the best way to ensure a foolproof outdoor wedding is by setting up a tent from the beginning. Tents can create a path for the bride and cover where guests sit for the ceremony. If it doesn’t look like rain will happen, you can always use the tents to provide shade from the hot sun instead of rain coverage.

According to statistics offered by Hudson Valley Weddings, 35% of nuptials take place outside. As your local country club, we can ensure your outdoor wedding is an event to remember.
