I planned my rustic outdoor wedding myself!
After I was asked to marry in December 2014, the first thing I thought of was: How am I going to organize this outdoor wedding? At first everything seems a little impossible, there are many suppliers to see, details to choose and places to visit, but what we suddenly do not realize at this stage is that one of the most enjoyable moments of life is yet to come. One was right, though I did not know it yet: it would be an outdoor and rustic wedding!
Planning an outdoor wedding is hard, I will not lie to you. As I told you again, for a year and a half I had many inspirational folders, I saw several videos on the internet, I cried with other marriages, and I saved until I knew how much I really could spend. When we finally set the date, the journey began: I had a year and a half to solve everything until June 12, 2016. So, there we went! Read more at Blue Mountains wedding Venues.
1. The decision by outdoor wedding, by style and choice of venue
After choosing the wedding date, I believe that style is the second most important thing. Only with these two issues can you decide details such as dress, location and type of decoration. Ricardo and I have always been more intimate and enjoy outdoor walks, so the dream of getting married in the middle of the field has always been something very strong for us.
However, we came up against two issues: the first is that, despite wanting few people in the marriage, we wanted to leave no one who had participated in our life together outside. And since we did not live in the center of the city, it was almost impossible to find a nearby place that had a country atmosphere, so we ran into the second problem.
After visiting about eight party houses, we found our dream spot for our outdoor wedding. He was not so close to where our relatives and family lived and the alternative we found was to arrange the wedding for the afternoon, so everyone could return home quietly despite the distance. I think that was one of our best decisions, because we have beautiful photos with the light of the sun and at night.
2. Winter Palette for an Outdoor Wedding
Winter weddings combine perfectly with lighter palettes, even more so that the wood of rustic furniture lends a heavier air. The colors yellow, salmon and guava with the green details of the hall itself made a harmonious composition and very cheerful and well reflected the style that we wanted.
3. The choice of clothes and souvenirs
My bridesmaids wore long pink tea dresses with models chosen by each. The pages wore suspenders and bow ties, much like rustic weddings. The groom wore a blue suit, which matched my sneaker and the details of the bouquet. My mother and the groom’s mother wore dresses of the same color, with different shades, one used light green and the other dark green.
