Important picnic wedding tips to know
Comfort, safety, and logistics are all key categories to keep in mind when planning your picnic wedding events.
Make it accessible. Anyone who has a physical disability will need to have adequate access to flat, paved strips from the parking lot to the main event area. Golf carts are great for chauffeuring guests.
Test cellular reception. Once guests get to the area, they may have trouble finding the party and will need some way to get a hold of everyone else.
Use clear signage. Get permission ahead of time for public areas but have signs at every area entrance and half-mile.
Double-check restrooms. Rent your own or reserve them ahead of time and make sure you hire an attendant.
Prepare for the season. Bring basic weather supplies to deal with anything that comes your way.
Arrange transportation. It may be easier to have everyone park in one area and shuttle them to the main event.
Bring allergy supplies. Benadryl, tissues, and eye drops could be helpful in a pinch. Also, make sure anyone who has a bee or any other severe outdoor allergy brings their own epi-pen just in case.
How to have a picnic wedding ceremony
All you need to separate your wedding ceremony from the rest of a public park, natural backdrop, or even your reception area is:
A decorated archway
Rows of seating with an aisle way
At least one additional decor item like a sign with your initials and the date or battery-powered lanterns lining the area
Otherwise, the natural setting will provide most of what you need decor-wise. As far as equipment for music and microphones go, make sure you have access to electricity nearby if needed to run anything. However, we’ve seen live acoustic guitar and a wedding officiant with some stage training work brilliantly.
