  • Wedding: June 2012

My wedding is planned to be in the morning outdoors at the beach in July.  My venue said that we will discuss options 2 days prior when accurate weather reports are available, but that the final call won’t need to be made until the morning of the wedding.  Pretty much the only thing that will move me indoors is a torrential downpour.

I think you might be overthinking this. First question, how long is your ceremony? 60F and breeze is totally fine to stand out side in a halter dress for 30 -40 minuets, they might not be warm and perfect, but it isn’t unreasonable in the slightest. If you are really concerned have a chair on the side reserved for jackets that they can put on after the ceremony and before pictures start to warm them up a little bit. 

The only reason I would send people in side is if they were getting wet. As a wedding guest if I know a wedding is going to be outside I normally have a sweater or cute little jacket along to make sure I won’t be cold unless I think people are generally capable of taking care of themselves. If they are getting wet or blowing away send them inside. If they are sitting in a slight breze but its 60, or even 58, I woudln’t worry about it.

Oh wow… honestly, I’d do the indoor ceremony! That’s almost guaranteed to be comfortable for your guests AND provide amazing photos no matter what the weather outside is like.
