It sounds really romantic, calallee… I can just imagine all the rosy, glowing faces gathered around the campfire. You should  totally steal Miss Champagne’s s’mores idea!

My only concern would be that in November the temperature is going to drop like a rock as soon as the sun sets, and people are more likely to get cold when they’re sitting still (i.e.; when they’re eating or listening to toasts). Could you maybe start things earlier in the day or reorganize so dinner can be finished by sunset.

You might also consider providing warmth-related favours such as shawls/scarves and those little stretchy gloves for people who’ve underestimated the weather.

That sounds so lovely! 

I totally agree with shnoogles about the warmth-related favours… I just went to a wedding last weekend and it was outside and tented but no heaters and it got really cold halfway though dinner after the sun set. 

Also… are you worried about rain in November?  I’m Vancouver and it rains alot at that time of year… (not sure where in the NW you are planning to be)

Happy planning!
