Did you know that the average cost of a wedding in 2012 was $13,106? And that doesn’t even cover the cost of the wedding ceremony! Luckily, there are ways to have a beautiful and elegant dream wedding without breaking the bank. One of the best ways to do this is to have an outdoor wedding — whether it be in a garden or the yard of your own home. However, just like any party, outdoor weddings require a great deal of planning and finesse, as well as the successful execution of hundreds of details.
If you’re looking to have an outdoor wedding, here are some of the items that you’ll need:
While there’s nothing more picturesque than a beautiful sunset wedding, mother nature doesn’t always care about what’s most beautiful. That being said, you need to prepare for the worst when planning our outdoor wedding. You can do so by investing in tent rentals and accessories for tents. Accessories for tents include rigs, tent flaps, and more. This will ensure that your guests are content, whatever the weather.
Weddings always have food, and that means they always require napkins. For your linen rentals, you want to keep in mind that for every 15 people, you need 200 napkins.
Table and Chair Rentals
Many tent rental companies also offer table rentals and chair rentals too. While guests will likely be partying it up on the dance floor all night, they will inevitably need a seat to sit, relax, and enjoy their meal.
A wedding isn’t a party without a few good drinks! For each guest, plan for two to three drinks per person at a very minimum. To keep things simple and inexpensive, offer a signature cocktail, a signature beer, and a wine selection. When it comes time for dessert, be sure to have enough coffee and tea!
