As your Melbourne Wedding Celebrant, I ensure that you at ease o the day and relaxed. In saying that i world like to remind you about The importance of a wet weather back up!
As I type this I am listening to the rain falling outside and Im hoping it passes for the brides getting married this weekend. There is no doubting that Lilydale is one of the best locations in Melbourne for a wedding, however rain, wind and extreme heat is no stranger to Melbourne! I’m always a little worried when couples plan to have their wedding on the outdoors with no plan B. If you are thinking of a ceremony location where there is no shelter from the wind and the rain please have a read through the points below before you make your final decision.
If you’ve decided to have an outdoor wedding in Lilydale congratulations! Outdoor weddings are romantic and beautiful. However, they aren’t as easy as they may look. Outdoor weddings come with additional challenges and pitfalls, but if you follow these tips, you’ll be sure to shine on your wedding day.
1. Make your guests comfortable. Think about what the weather will likely be at the time of day and month of the year of your outdoor wedding. Sunny but not hot, cool but not freezing or raining.
2. Have a backup plan. What will you do if it rains? The ideal outdoor wedding location has an indoor location waiting just in case. Many brides and grooms opt to have their ceremony outside and reception inside. In a pinch, the tables can be scooted to the back of the room during the ceremony.
A tent is another option, but only for light to moderate rain storms. A heavy rain will soak the ground underneath, leaving guests with soggy and muddy shoes. Make sure any tent you rent is sturdy so it won’t flip over, and that it has thick and weighted sides.
3. Plan for Wind. Many outdoor weddings suffer from windy conditions. Avoid light fabrics like chiffons and china silks in your dress and the bridesmaid dresses. You also might want to think twice about having a vail if it is windy on your wedding day. Tell your hairstylist that you’ll be having an outdoor wedding so she/he can plan a style that won’t leave you looking like Cousin It! Men in the wedding party should also use styling product. And of course, make sure your tent will stand up to gusting winds or find an indoor backup plan.
4. Can everybody hear? When you picture your dream wedding at the beach, you’re probably not hearing the roaring of the waves, the rushing wind, or the local kids running and screaming around you. Make sure your celebrant has a good sound system that will over power these background noises.
5. Decorations. One of the bonuses of an outdoor wedding is the natural beauty around you, lessening your need to decorate. But you still need to do some work. Visit the site a week before your wedding to make sure the grass is mowed etc. If your wedding is at a public park, you may want to ask the groomsmen or friends to do this the morning of your ceremony. Other decorations you may want to consider include an arch or trellis to focus the ceremony and frame the bride and groom as they say their vow or strings of lights or lanterns in the trees. Your photographer will be a great person to discuss decorations with as they will know what will look best in photos.
6. Make things tasty outside. Does your caterer have experience planning an outdoor wedding menu?
7. Don’t leave your guests parched. Since alcohol is dehydrating, consider serving a variety of lemonades, teas and punches. If cold coffee and tea. If it’s a hot day, Be sure to have plenty of ice and water around as well. For a fancy cocktail, why not serve a classic mint julep or a mojito? The mint will refresh and cool your guests.
8. Those pesky flying things. Be sure to put out citronella candles, or have a few can’s of aerogard handy, so that your guests won’t spend the whole ceremony swatting at the air.
9. Here comes the sun. Consider timing your outdoor wedding for sunset where your guests will see you take your vows surrounded by the warm glow of the sun. Those having a daytime outdoor wedding should orient the ceremony so that the sun will be on guests’ backs rather than in their eyes.
10. Permits. Don’t forget to contact your local council to get a permit for an outdoor wedding. Be sure to ask about rules concerning rubbish removal, candle or torch lighting, and pre-wedding photographer.
If you have any doubts at all chat to your celebrant as they will be able to help with ideas and advice. Outdoor weddings can be spectacular but always plan for the unexpected and don’t be disappointed if you need to change the plans slightly. The important thing on your wedding day is not the weather but the person you are marrying.
Once again with me you will be guaranteed a professional and classy ceremony.
Here’s what some of my couples have to say.
Thank you so much for making our special day what it was. Both Matt
and myself warmed to you instantly and found you incredibly helpful in
organising our ceremony. Our guests commented on how well spoken and
friendly you were and you also managed to look fabulous – despite the cold weather! You made the whole process easy due to your professional manner and obvious experience and I am grateful for finding you.
Liana & Matthew Smiles.

delivering the ceremony. We have had such positive feedback about the whole thing.
