What is your weather typically like, and do you have a back-up plan?

I’m from the midwest, so while outdoor weddings are possible, there’s a huge risk to them.  The precipitation situation is never constant.

Ask the venue what they have done in the past in case of rain Or high heat. Chances are, they have a backup plan and once you hear it, you can decide if you’re comfortable with it or not. If the normal temperature is above 80* or so during the time you’d be getting married! you may want to keep looking.

I’m sure the venue has a backup plan– see what it is. We also got married outside around the same time of year as you will be. The venue had a covered area where we’d do the ceremony in case of rain.

Usually you can rent a tent as a backup

and cancel a few days prior if weather looks ok– you will lose the deposit

FutureMrsCalloway:  upstate new york, so a totally different climate from where you’ll be getting married — but we got lucky with the weather, and I hope you do, too!
