When looking to plan your wedding day, there are lots of decisions that need to be made. Location is a huge choice and can have an effect on everything else you choose, including flowers, dresses, guest count and much more.
Not only do you have the choice of where exactly the location will be, but you may also be contemplating the choice of an indoor or an outdoor wedding. There are many outdoor wedding venues Omaha has to offer and there are also many pros and cons to both options. The biggest thing to consider is where the wedding will be held and what the weather during that time of year is like.
Of course, if you are having a winter wedding in a place that tends to have a lot of snow, wind and cold, you may want to lean towards an indoor wedding. If you are in a location with great weather during the time of your wedding, then an outdoor wedding may be the perfect choice.
Here are some pros and cons of having an outdoor wedding to help you make the decision a bit easier!
Sometimes an outdoor venue can be less costly than an indoor one. When you can spare air conditioning/heat and other necessities of an indoor venue, you may save some money on an outdoor space for your wedding.
Often times an outdoor wedding can be seen as more family friendly because there is less worry of children breaking things, getting them dirty or overall having to be careful. They may also be more entertained outdoors than indoors where there is space to run and play. This would hopefully keep them distracted and away from wedding decorations or breakable things.
One very obvious draw of an outdoor wedding is the beautiful scenery. Having an outdoor wedding gives you the option to have your ceremony in front of whatever backdrop your heart desires. This means greenery, forest, golf course, fields or even snow. The options are endless and will almost always make for a beautiful wedding spot. Amongst the outdoor wedding venues Omaha can offer, we think The Club at Indian Creek is one of the most beautiful spaces for your big day.
When getting pictures taken at your ceremony and reception you want the best lighting possible. Having a wedding outdoors when the sun is at the perfect point in the sky is an awesome way to be sure that you have the beautiful photos you’ve always dreamt of. Natural lighting is incredibly important when getting high quality photos of your special day and it is definitely a pro when considering an outdoor wedding.
While the actual rental of the venue may be cheaper than an indoor space, the rental of everything that is needed may be an added expense. This means tables, bar, dance floor, tent and anything else that you could need to provide for an outdoor space. Often times these things are not included in what comes with an outdoor space and may cost additional money for you.
The unpredictability of the weather is a huge con for most people when looking to book an outdoor venue. Not knowing for sure what the weather will be like on the day of can be a huge con for some couples. It may rain, snow or be super windy. Without knowing, it can sometimes be difficult to plan. Most people suggest having an indoor backup plan in case the weather is uncooperative. Outdoor wedding venues Omaha has to offer can often be plagued by this, given Omaha can have somewhat unpredictable weather.
While there are a few cons to an outdoor wedding, a beautiful golf course at any time of day is one of the most beautiful backdrops for your special day. Give us a call today and let’s figure out how to make your wedding happen!
