May Wedding Venues
A wedding always calls for the perfect venue. Whether indoors or outdoors, you want the appropriate wedding venue where everyone can feel comfortable and have fun. For large gatherings, it has to be spacious, of course. That means the first thing you need to consider is the number of your guests.
Unlike other spring weddings, a May one gives you the advantage of fewer bookings. Still, it is always a great idea to book a venue in advance as much as possible. If you can, book it a full year ahead, then all the better. How advanced you have to book a venue depends on the type as well, so take this into account. On that note, below are some ideas to think about.
Outdoor wedding venues
If it is going to be an outdoor May wedding, book the venue at least 6 months to a year before the actual wedding date. If you do not want to book ahead or do not have time, the easiest place to hold an outdoor wedding is a public park. It is affordable, but with limited space. If most of your family members and relatives attend, they might not like this idea.
However, public parks are where you can save when it comes to flowers. It is typically already well landscaped with plenty of springtime blooms to enhance your wedding. If not this, a winery is also popular. Wineries can usually accommodate weddings and is an excellent venue for enchanted forest themes. The physical space is also limited, but the place is fantastic if this suits your taste.
The weather conditions
May is when you don’t have to worry too much about rain and bad weather. It is generally sunny around this time. But for the sake of your family, guests, and the caterers as well, it is always wise to have a plan B. Some do not want to risk an outdoor wedding, so the ceremony and reception are both indoors.
But if you really want to hold it in the open, then you can advise your guests to prepare an umbrella, at least. On the other hand, an indoor wedding will have a great ambiance if in a venue with floor to ceiling windows. It will allow more light to come inside, ensuring the wedding and reception are well lit.
