Nothing is better than an outdoor Michigan wedding, but many brides and grooms-to-be assume that they can only take advantage of Michigan’s splendor in the spring and summer months. If your dream is to have an outdoor autumn wedding, these are the most essential items to include:
- Restroom Trailers
- Comfort Food
While a tent may be an optional item at an outdoor wedding in the warmer months, it is a staple for fall weddings. Tents bring people together and protect them from the elements in all seasons, but they are even more useful in the fall. A tent is crucial to define the area of the wedding for guests so that you only need to heat and light a small area. Additionally, the unpredictability of autumn weather makes cover from cold rain essential.
Autumn temperatures are typically cold and crisp, which makes heaters crucial for guests to keep warm. This is especially important for evening wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, and receptions. Make guests comfortable to keep them enjoying the wedding late into the afternoon or evening. Rent plenty of heaters so that you can space them out to give attendees enough room to socialize. The last thing you want is everyone trying to huddle around a limited number of heat sources.
For more rustic weddings, forgo the heaters and opt for a campfire or bonfire instead. If you’re bucking tradition, you can also consider doing s’mores instead of a regular cake. (Just be sure to let the toasted marshmallows cool before smooshing them in each other’s faces!)
Autumn months mean shorter days, which makes lights a necessity. Set the right ambiance by using lower level mood lighting on tables, around the dance floor, and near the bar. The right lighting will not only illuminate the event but also create beautiful pictures for the wedding party and guests. Twinkling string lights, pendants, and Edison bulbs are gorgeous selections for the intimacy and romance of an outdoor autumn wedding.
Provide guests with the ultimate in luxury – a portable restroom trailer. These bathroom options will allow you to have a fancy bathroom no matter where your wedding is held. Luxury portable toilets provide guests with functionality combined with aesthetics to create a memorable wedding-worthy experience. They also give members of the wedding party a spacious, climate-controlled location to change.
Feed guests the flavors of the fall to create a true autumn experience. Incorporate fun, flavorful items like pressed apple cider and fresh pumpkin spice donuts to give the feel of cozy fall experience. Make main entrees warm, homey comfort foods that guests will remember.
