garden venue

Garden Venue

Choose a garden venue that is not also scenic but has flat ground for where you want your wedding to be. Hills and high heels dont always go well together and can cause great issues.

If you are choosing a public space make sure you get the right permits. Dont forget to read all the fine print on access time for setting up and noise control etc. You may also need a liquor license.

Its so important to have good easy access to not only toilets but to power and water. These are the basics and easily overlooked if say planning a wedding in a field.

Back Up Plan

A marquee or somewhere else to go if the weather turns bad is super important. This will save you so much stress and anxiety if you have a back up plan you are happy with from day one of your planning.

Creature Comforts

When you are exposed to the elements at an outdoor wedding dont forget the basics. Sunscreen , insect repellent , heating and cooling are all important things to consider and will affect your guests experience.

Good Lighting

Being outside you will need good lighting for safety reasons as well as setting the mood. Lighting for near toilets access in and out of the gardens all needs to be considered as well as where your reception is.


Choose furniture that is not only suitable for a garden style but also suitable to be outside in the elements. The furniture you choose will also be determined by the format you choose and how long your guests are there.

Garden weddings typically have a great scenic background to begin with which always helps. Choose things that will enhance this inside the reception once the sun goes down and the gardens are no longer visible.


Food is always influenced by your wedding format be it cocktail or sit down. depending where your wedding is located food and drinks can quite often be influenced by the location such as a winery in country.
