As the temperatures start to rise once more, the world of weddings is going to start seeing many more alfresco ceremonies and receptions. Spring and summer are often thought of as the traditional wedding seasons due to the lovely weather – in most parts of the country, that is. Friends and family are beginning to gear up for some truly lovely outdoor events – because how better to celebrate your love for your partner than being close to nature? If you’re a bride or groom looking to host an open-air reception, you’re likely looking for fun and useful details to incorporate.
One of the aspects you need to put a great deal of thought into is your cuisine: with the outdoor setting, food will need to be watched and perhaps tended to, as sitting in the hot sun can quickly make your fare dangerous to eat. After you work out your food safety logistics, it will be time for the design portion: selecting a way to display your offerings in a sweet and eye-catching way.
