Can you afford the chairs and decorations for an outdoor wedding in addition to the stuff for the reception? Its just something to think about. You may also want to make sure your officiant is willing to do a wedding outside of a church because I know some refuse to do weddings if they aren’t in a church.

I think outdoor weddings can be very lovely, and very spiritual.

Granted, i’m a little bias because i’m getting married overlooking the ocean. But i’m a beach brat…

Weather is and will always be a factor in an outdoor wedding. It can be very hot, or very cold, and you’ll have to compensate for those differences, however, I think the moments captured out in the naturally beautiful world we live in, are priceless.

Well, I’ve attended my home church regularly since my family joined about ten years ago. I knew I’d get married there because that’s my church family and I take my faith seriously. It’s important to me that I get married there–not to my parents or anyone else, ME.

I guess what I’m saying is–don’t get married in a church because it’s pretty or sentimental to your family, that’s not what it’s about ! If you’re not seriously religious or part of the church community, it can be seen as rather direspectful to want to get married there (the church people have to wonder what your motives are, and what you think about their place of worship. Is it shallow reasoning or genuine?).

Anyway, it sounds like you’d prefer an outdoor ceremony. Don’t be afraid to go for it. 🙂
