Help! My FI and I just goT engaged. He is in the coast guard and really wanted to have the water a part of our wedding. We love the idea of a tent reception down by Lake Michigan. Problem is August is only 6 months away and I just don’t know that I can plan a wedding for 175 people that quick. Then I’m in my BFF wedding in October. If we do November 9th, ive found vendors to be cheaper, it gives us time to plan. We talked to the tent rental place and they said they have heaters that makes it feel like you are inside. November could be hit or miss. If we don’t do november, then we have to wait till spring, which we would rather not do. any thoughts or suggestions? The tent iseriously gorgeous By the water! Would you go to a tent reception in November?

I would be worried about the weather. Have you looked into openings for August? I think 6 months is enough time…

I live in Minnesota, so pretty similar weather. I was worried about the weather in October, I’d be very worried about the weather in Novemeber. It’s been hit or miss the last few years and you never know. I looked up the average temp for my area in October and the average was 45. I personally wouldn’t risk it.

I livethink ive in southern wi. Haven’t had snow here until mid to late side ember. I know it would be cool out but that’s about all I was worried about. The tent company just had a tent event for ms. America here and it was completely warm inside? This is so frustrating because we don’t want to wait till next year. If we do August, my showers and Bach party would over lap with my moh who s getting married in October. we’ve only been dating 7 months so my family is freaking out over a wedding in August. And August could be stifling hot.

I wouldn’t have my reception outside in November in Wisconsin. Really, the last time of the year I would consider OK for an outdoor wedding would be early October. What if the heaters break? What if they don’t heat as well as the folks at the venue say they will?
Is there an alternate indoor venue that you could look into instead?

The heaters are magnificant. We went to a restaurant in door county in october and sat outside and was actually talking about how warm it is.
i personally love the snow so i’d love an outdoor reception but that’s something you’ll have to think of.
depending on when you do it in spring the weather could also be a problem. minnesota did just get a blizzard last week.
