Thinking of having an outdoor wedding? Kristin Odenwald, the Hospitality Manager of Robert Hall Winery, has these three quick tips to ensure your day in the sun goes smoothly.
1) Plan for comfort! A good way to keep guests comfortable on a warm day is to bring them inside for cocktail hour following the ceremony. This little change gives guests a chance to cool down and experience a different atmosphere. After cocktail hour, guests can enjoy the cooler night air if your reception is also outside.
2) Make sure your centerpieces are weighted in case of wind.
3) Try to incorporate something that reflects what kind of couple you are. Whether it’s a cozy side lounge, a cigar bar, or an open photo booth showcasing the beautiful surroundings, give your guest something special to do.
