3 Reasons Why You Should Consider an Outdoor Wedding

When it comes to weddings these days, it feels like there are too many options to choose from. In essence, your wedding day is about bringing everyone you care about together to witness a momentous moment in you and your partner’s life together. The moment, however, can get bogged down with costly location rentals, food items half the group isn’t thrilled with and tacked on extras.

With all that in mind, let’s go over a few reasons as to why an outdoor wedding might be the perfect fit for you. Check them out below. 

Scenery Galore

There are so many gorgeous outdoor locations to host your wedding. Whether it’s beachside, near a lake, on a rooftop, or in a garden, you have plenty of options to choose from regarding your vision and interests. At Glenwood Canyon, we offer spectacular panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains and the Colorado River runs right through the resort property. 

The great thing about outdoor venues is there is often a lot of space for your guests, meaning you don’t have to worry as much about the number of guests you can invite to your nuptials. Don’t forget, an outdoor wedding venue also lends itself to some amazing photographs for both you and your guests. When it comes to atmosphere, it’s hard to beat an outdoor location. 

Decoration Freedom

Indoor wedding venues can be restrictive when it comes to decorating for your wedding. If you’re finding it hard to nail down a location that fits your vision, an outdoor space might be the best option for you. 

After all, an outdoor wedding is all about freedom. Depending on your theme, you can bring your own furniture for decorating or choose more thematic items like hay bales for a country wedding theme. If you plan on having a heavily themed wedding, consider an outdoor space so you’ll have more opportunities to arrange things as you see fit. 

Food Flexibility

Lastly, outdoor weddings give you the chance to plan your own food menu. When choosing a hotel or hall, you often have to choose from set menus and only have the option of your chosen location’s chefs. When you choose to have an outdoor wedding, you can create your own menu and select your own catering company. So, you’ll not only be able to choose all the food you’d like but you can also decide how long the food is served too. 

Considering this, plan the ultimate feast for you and your guests. Being able to pick and choose the food you’d like to eat at the wedding will also ensure all guests are happy and well-fed. When it comes to weddings, keeping everyone happy and pleased is part of the success and outdoor weddings are sure to tick a lot of your boxes.
