We had an outside ceremony in October and it was pretty chilly. Guests were wearing coats and scarfs, I really contemplated moving the ceremony indoors but my husband kept telling me to just relax, people know how to dress for cold weather. I am SO glad we had it outdoors, it was the perfect day. It was freezing but beautiful. Guests went straight the cocktail hour and warmed up and no one complained.

Just remember, people know how to dress for cold weather.

We had an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour, unfortunately the whole week around our wedding was nice except the day of our wedding, it was cold, windy, and rained.   We had a tent up but I also provided pashminas and a lot of guests wore light coats.

Is there an option to set up heat lamps?  I’ve seen weddings where the guests are provided shawls/little blankets when they enter along with the programs which is nice.  A bit hard on this short notice though. 

 

For me I would be fine in that weather, but I’m from further north and used to way colder.  Anything above 50 is fine for me.  I would suggest you go outside sometime over the next few days and sit for a bit, see how it actually feels to be outside for that long.  Even if it’s a little colder than it will be on the wedding day it can give you a better idea of whether or not guest will be comfortable. 

 

 Also, if your guests know that it’s an outdoor ceremony they will likley remember to bring a jacket.  If the invite didn’t state if it’s indoor or out I would lean towards moving it, as they might not be properly dressed.

That’s chilly for the South but all you can do is just make sure your ceremony is short and sweet. And maybe provide some blankets for ladies that might be wearing short dresses under their jackets. I wouldn’t move my ceremony inside though if your heart is set on doing it outdoors, it’s not like it’s going to be 30 degrees outside.

Where I am currently, is 13 degrees with two feet of snow on the ground, so the thought of 45 being cold makes me laugh. Having said that, I Know the south is warmer, I lived there for a bit. 

What you could do extra is go to a dollar store or something and get a bunch of those hand warmers that you break and they heat up. Give them out to each guest if it’s cold, if not you’re supplied for life and not breaking the bank. If i was going to a wedding knowing it was outside, then I would dress appropriately, and hope for the best lol!

I would be really uncomfortable as I feel the cold.  I think you should have it indoors.

@Brooklyn55:  I’m from Canada and now live in North Dakota, so I’m always surrounded by snow it seems. However, for a brief time in my life, I lived in Missouri, and I LOVED the weather. Being able to be back in a skirt before March was AWESOME (i don’t like pants haha). I loved having a real Spring season. 

I would move back south just for the weather! I know some people don’t see Missouri as south, but to me it was haha. I loved that winter was 3 week of ‘cold’, and then it got warm again!

Good luck, I hope it stays nice and warm for you!
