Say “Aisle Do” to the Venue

by SueKafoglisEvents

Coming from the South, I have seen southern country weddings done right and I’ve seen them done horribly wrong. First off, do not think this is a hillbilly “how to” for weddings, I believe in classic country, vintage, and timeless weddings that will be remembered forever.

When beginning to plan your wedding, you usually start off with picking out the venue for the ceremony and reception. Just begin by asking yourself a few questions. Big or small? Indoor or outdoor?  Many southern weddings take place in a church but for those who want to be different there are a lot of country cute ideas for your venue.

Outdoor weddings are a staple to southern style. When you think of outside, dont think about the typical backyard wedding. The perfect southern style wedding would be a magical wooded area, a field of wide open spaces or a string lit barn. With these simple venues is where you can get creative with how you decorate and personalize where you will walk down the aisle.  An outdoor or barn wedding is like giving you a blank canvas, you can turn the venue into what fits your personality.

Even though outdoor weddings are more laid-back than others here are a few tips to make sure the event goes off without a hitch!

  • Have cute matching umbrellas ready. Even if the weather doesn’t cooperate with your outdoor plan, umbrellas can make for cute pictures on a rainy wedding day.
  • Rent  a tent, tables, and chairs as soon as possible. Make sure you confirm your rental date to make sure you get the best for your buck.
  • Reminder: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Your venue matters, spend plenty of time planning out what you need and want out of a venue and don’t rush into settling for something you cannot get out of.

All you need is somthing borrowed, something blue, something SOUTHERN, and love for two.
