Marquee or just a bare space
Whether your wedding is a formal with more than 100 guests or just a casual, exclusive gathering for closest friends and family members, the venue must have its own style and design to go with the affair. If you are deciding on erecting marquees or tents, these entail another cost since you still have to rent for tables, chairs and covers. Work with your organizers (if you have one) or closest friends, to scout for tent rentals, where to look for the sizes, shapes and designs that would fit in the venue or your vision of a beautiful celebration.
Consider the Season
It's always important to consider the season when planning your wedding especially if you decide for an outdoor reception. Are you marrying during the rainy days where storm might be possible to strike? Or are you marrying during the intense summer heat?
Always create a contingency plan when deciding for an outdoor reception because anything can happen during the day. Choose a venue where you can set up a campsite or has a pavilion as alternative during rain showers.
Instruct your organizers to secure covers of chairs and tables before the start of the event in case of heavy wind.
Just an Open Space
If you decide to just use tables and chairs in an open space with no tents to cover the guests, make sure this area is not directly hit by the extreme harsh rays of the sun or else your guests will bear the agony of being roasted under the sun. Look for an area where it provides a cooler atmosphere at the time of your wedding reception.
Create a Stylish Venue
Spruce up the area with pastel and soft fabric to make it more relaxing, put scented candles if possible on each table to calm the senses of your guests and make the celebration even more cozy and cool.
