The task of choosing whether to have an indoor or an outdoor wedding is seemingly simple but even the simplest of decisions involve a lot of decision making. We’ve noted down some factors that you should keep in mind while choosing between the two.
Weather or season is one of the primary decision makers of whether the wedding will be indoor or outdoor. Monsoons, heavy rains, extremely windy weather or even the extremes of hot and cold are some things that automatically mean that the wedding must be an indoor one rather than an outdoor to avoid nature from ruining the rites and the celebration.
Without a scenic location, the whole purpose of an outdoor wedding becomes redundant. Having an outdoor wedding just for the sake of it is meaningless. Even in a scenic location, things such as comfort and ease of operations must be kept in mind. For example, a beach wedding without proper arrangements can be very annoying sand getting into people’s shoes and clothes and ruining the joyous mood. Organization is key when it especially comes to outdoor weddings.
These are the two primary things that one must necessarily keep in mind while deciding between an indoor and an outdoor weddings. Apart from these two, there are a few things that one must also look out for. In some cases, the setting up of an outdoor location will cost a lot more than simply booking and decorating community halls or marriage halls that exist specifically for the same purpose.
Sometimes popular outdoor location may have some of the amenities but if you’re going to be daring and go for a spot that is out of the ordinary, setting up the necessary amenities for a marriage will definitely cost you more than the basic indoor wedding but if you’ve picked a pretty location, it will probably be worth it.
The number of guests and their range in age is also something you must keep in mind when deciding. Elder people usually prefer to sit down somewhere and talk while children will most certainly be running around. It is essential to make sure you have the necessary requirements for them, if they are invited. Indoor weddings certainly have places to sit and the long halls for kids to run around but all outdoor locations that are just a scenic spot and nothing else may require some modifications. Just a buffet by the beach won’t do without the necessary seating arrangements and a romantic wedding in the clearing of a deep forest might need some security protocols to ensure guests don’t go wandering or missing, especially in the case of children.
The kind of wedding rites that will be performed also need to be taken into consideration. A Christian wedding simply involves walking down the aisle and saying your vows but a Hindu wedding is much more complex in terms of the actions and activities involved such as the bride being carried to the mandap, the “mala badal” and the “saat pheres” amongst more such things.
Ultimately however, the choice between an indoor and outdoor wedding is absolutely the decision of the bride and the groom. These are just some factors that would do them good if they kept in mind while deciding between the two and in the end as long as it is made sure that all the necessary arrangement are done in an adequate fashion, there should be no obstacle to the celebrations and the joy and that is exactly where Wedding Event Management Companies like Kerala Wedding Planners – Kochi comes into play.
