Should You Host an Indoor or Outdoor Wedding?

One of the most important decisions every couple has to make while planning their wedding is deciding if they want their event to be hosted indoors or outdoors. Some couples are drawn to a more natural, romantic outdoor setting, while there are others who prefer the comfort and convenience of an indoor setting. Whether you want to get married in a garden or an exquisite ballroom, there are many Houston wedding venues that will cater to your requirements. While going through your options, here are a few things to consider:

Indoor Wedding Venue Considerations

  • Enhanced control over weather conditions - Indoor spaces provide you with climate-controlled bliss, so you don't have to worry about the weather conditions.

  • Less to worry about logistically - When hosting your celebration indoors, you can rest easy by knowing that you have built-in restrooms, power outlets, and kitchen facilities to cater to your needs.

  • Lighting - Indoor venues that are dim or dark rely heavily on artificial lighting. Be sure your photographer is skilled at capturing indoor areas nicely under such conditions.

Outdoor Wedding Venue Considerations

  • Infinite possibilities for weather conditions - Though outdoor spaces come with beautiful settings, there is always a chance of wind and rain that can mess up your hair and make-up. Consider providing umbrellas in case of light rain or parasols in case of hot weather to protect your guests.

  • Prepare for a backup plan - Of course we all hope the weather is perfect for your big day, but you should always have a backup plan and be ready to execute it at least 24 hours before tying the knot.

  • Natural lighting - Outdoor areas provide natural lighting that is perfect for capturing timeless moments and golden hour magic.

These are just a few considerations, but if you can't decide, you may go for an outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception. If the weather permits, you can enjoy both settings conveniently and let your celebration flow smoothly.
