    Thats a good option too! Hmmm.. how will you be keeping your guest entertained while you take photos outside? And is your ceremony room different from your reception room?

    Yes, lucky me, the venue has given me indoor setup option! Thanks for the optimism.

    White fur coat Smiley winking but hopefully it won't tain too much.
    Definitely have a backup plan or even 2. I had a friend whose venue got banckrupt last minute and they had to book another one last minute. It was a nightmare. So yeah, better over prepared than not prepared.

    Outdoor wedding is great if the weather works with you great. It all depends on what the temperature and clouds look clear and warm, perfect to have your guests comfortable.

    Indoors is nice to have as an alternative solution in the case of rain, thunderstorm or winds occurring to push your décor away and ceremony set up.

    Most venues offer this option as a back up which is good. Some don't and charge if you wish to take on the option of the hall and ceremony site.

    Good thing you have the inside option. I'll put out good vibes for good weather that day.

    For myself I just had to plan for both. To save the hassle of waiting for the day of to make sure weather is good we are just doing it inside and will take photos outside

    I'm getting married outside on September 21st, which can also be a pretty weird time of year for weather. It could be boiling hot...or super cool... We're planning for both. We're also planning for rain (heaven forbid) and have an indoor ceremony space as a backup plan.

    My oldest friend got married last October (the 20th) and it was a gorgeous, sunny day and quite warm (for that time of year), so you never know!

    There's nothing you CAN do other than be prepared for any weather situation and keep your guests informed of what they're getting into! Most people would probably assume that a wedding that late in the year will be indoors, so it would be a good idea to warn them ahead of time!

    I'm putting all my good vibes out into the universe and hoping she listens and gives both of us absolutely perfect days!

    I think it may be a bit cold - but as long as you are prepared for it then it should be lovely!

    My wedding is October 5th 2019 and our ceremony will be outside and reception both in and outside!

    For our wedding favours we got blankets for everybody and plan on having bonfires (weather permitting of course)!

    Plus, depending on how many people you are having that could factor in - I'm having 250 so it should be warm enough with our body heat but if I had a smaller group I would be a bit concerned.

    If you’re deadset on an outdoor ceremony, make sure your guests know and provide blankets.

    Im not a cold weather person at all, so I would definitely appreciate the heads up about the outdoor ceremony!

    100% doable! Just be prepared, and make sure your guests are prepared. If you have a wedding website let people know everything is outdoors and to dress accordingly.
    Have some blankets handy for some of the women who get cold. And if it is not covered some umbrellas!

    I think it’s doable. We’re going to get inexpensive umbrellas and have been collecting blankets for the past few months in case it’s raining or cold. Or both.
    We’re having a small wedding so it’s not too bad. I don’t know if I’d feel the same way if we had a larger guest list.
