Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. There is so much excitement about inviting your loved ones to celebrate the beginning of this new chapter with your special partner, but there can also be a lot of stress and pressure during the planning stages. One of the biggest challenges couples face when planning their perfect day is choosing between an outdoor wedding venue or an indoor one. Since summer is on its way and the weather is expected to be nice until the fall, why not opt for country outdoor wedding venue in the Caledon area?
Last month, Expedia listed Caledon, Ontario as one of the top honeymoon destinations in the word, labelling it as a hidden gem. Not only is it a gorgeous place to host a wedding ceremony thanks to its rolling hills, abundance of greenery, and seclusion from the hustle and bustle of the city, but Caledon also has a variety of bed and breakfasts, farmers markets, cideries, craft breweries and cycling and walking trails. Still not convinced? Here are some of the benefits of an outdoor wedding ceremony, and why a wedding venue in Caledon is the best choice for your special day.
Reasons to Choose an Outdoor Wedding Venue for Your Wedding
Natural View, Fresh Air, and Relaxing Sounds
There’s nothing like the sounds of chirping birds, water trickling into a still pool, and leaves dancing in the wind. These relaxing views and sounds can all be part of your wedding when you choose an outdoor venue. Most of the décor you need is already provided by the grounds, which can save you time and money. Arbour and white benches are so romantic. All you need to worry about is choosing the best site, from a number of lovely settings available and a few creative touches or décor for the stage where you will say your “I do’s.” The natural lighting also makes for great photos so you will be able to walk away with lasting memories.
If you love spending time outside, outdoor venues are the perfect option. Outdoor events are fun for both the bride and groom and their guests because they create the perfect backdrop for the occasion. It helps set a serene and romantic mood and allows everyone be comfortable and relaxed. The beauty of the outdoors also enhances the feelings everyone will have on this very special day. After your ceremony, your guests will be able to enjoy the gorgeous grounds and make the most of the day. You can even watch the sun set over the forest canopy!
More Outdoor Wedding Photoshoot Options
As mentioned the outdoors are scenic and beautiful. This makes it a perfect backdrop for photographs and your ceremony. It won’t take much more to decorate your outdoor ceremony area—perhaps some twinkling lights, chairs covered in white sheets, and flower decals around the arbour area. Depending on the time of day, you may even save extra from needing lighting fixtures, as the sunlight will do the job perfectly.
Intimate Feel and Personal Touches
Working outdoors is like starting with a blank slate. This makes it easy to customize your day exactly the way you want it to be. The luxury of having a large indoor space, means you can easily plan to move everything indoors should the weather not cooperate.
No overcrowded spaces.
Outdoor venues have the tendency of being more spacious and breathable than indoor choices. You have more space to work with to set up your reception area, with a host of decorative possibilities and there’s more room for guests to socialize and relax.
Alternative Seating Options
Instead of guests sitting in church pews or dining tables, you have a multitude of options for outdoor seating. Benches are provided but you can use lawn chairs, blankets on hay bales, or customized log seats if you’re extra handy. If being outdoors during your ceremony seems like too much stress, many barn wedding venues offer an indoor room for the ceremony and dinner and provide an outdoor bar or patio for socializing.
Endless Entertainment Possibilities
The opportunities are endless when it comes to outdoor weddings. Since you are not confined by an indoor venue, you can add extras to make your reception more fun. At Cadogan Farm Estate, we have an expansive event area your guests are welcome to explore. Say “hello” to some of the horses grazing nearby. If children are invited to your wedding, you can set up inflatable game stations, so they can have fun, too!
Make Vivid Memories
An outdoor wedding reception will be remembered by you and your guests for a long time. Even when you are older, you will have the perfect story to share with your children and grandchildren. Nature’s wonderful bounty has a huge impact on our emotional state, and that’s what makes these events, lifetime experiences. You can make your wedding unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before by planning an outdoor wedding your way.
