@FutureMrsJohnston:  Where is your wedding? You never know…we got married on January 20th in Baltimore…two years ago there was a blizzard that same time of year. On our wedding day it was sunny and 50! How cold is it normally in your area? If you do go for it, just be flexible about it enough to realize the money may go to waste if it’s too cold and nobody uses it at all, and be okay with that 🙂

Oh I just love this!  If you are renting heat lamps… be sure to rent enough.  I also love having some throws around for guests to snuggle up with outside… I’ve also seen shawls or pashminas supplied in a basket, but perhaps it wouldnt be enough warmth… I also love the idea of maybe a hot chocolate or cider bar!  So fun!

@FutureMrsJohnston:  Im a diy girl, and Im wondering if it would match your astmosphere if you did “fleece” shawls/ blankets.  They have solid colored fleece, and you could start collecting joann fabrics coupons to use, and do the no sew kind.  If you have an ultra formal event though you may not like the way that sounds….

@FutureMrsJohnston:  oh, gotcha. the wedding I went to had all of the dancing/dj/bars outside (in the enclosed “heated” area), so it wasn’t ideal. i do love the idea of a fire pit tho

This is super cute & sounds like a great idea.

Just be weary that some of the outdoor heaters require propane.. so don’t want those anywhere near the bon fire!
