To have an indoor or an outdoor wedding… That is “the” question! Before choosing the perfect venue, you have to know if you want the wedding to take place indoors or outdoors. Both can be very beautiful, but ultimately the decision will depend on your style and desires. Today I will provide you some pros and cons for both options.
Indoor Wedding Pros
The biggest pro for an indoor wedding is that it eliminates any chance of the weather interfering with the original planning. You are in a controlled environment and the weather is not something you have to worry about on your big day.
Moreover, an indoor space is always easier to transform in any way and style the couple likes. You can make it as expensive as you want, the possibilities are endless. All the details you can dream of can come true.
If you want to get married in a very warm country or in the middle of summer, it is not advisable to stay in direct sunlight during the hottest hours of the day. Since most of the venues have air conditioning the best alternative for this would be to have your reception inside.
Indoor Wedding CONS
Having your wedding inside can also have a few downsides. For example; the photographer could have more difficulties to take perfect photos due to lighting. Natural light is sometimes better especially if your ceremony or reception room is quite dark.
Furthermore, if you hire a photographer and videographer they have more facilities to move around you and your guest freely if you’re outside rather than inside.
OUtdoor wedding Pros
Having an outdoor wedding can offer you a lot of benefits. To start with the biggest benefit is the decorations. You do not need a lot of extra flowers or decorations, because of the natural decor already present at the venue.
Even for a beach wedding, the beauty of the sea and sand can be enough. This means you do not need to spend a lot of money on flowers and decorations, which saves you some money from your budget which can be used for other things.
outdoor wedding cons
You can perfectly plan all the details for a wedding, but the weather will always be the only thing you cannot control. Unfortunately, it is impossible to predict rain, wind, heat wave or something else days in advance. It could change your plans completely and ruin the ceremony of your dreams. That is why it might be a good option to make use of a tent or hire some fans or heaters depending on the season.
Both kinds of weddings have cons and pros. It really depends on your and your future partner’s preference. One last tip that I would like to share is to consider opting for a venue that has both inside and outside possibilities especially in case of bad weather. Like this, you can accommodate your guests, even at the last minute.
