Things You Need When Planning an Outdoor Remote Wedding

Outdoor Remote Wedding


Are you planning an outdoor wedding? If so, congratulations and welcome to the club! If you're looking for tips and advice on how to pull off this feat, you've come to the right place. Here are some things that I've learned over the years that have helped me plan successful remote weddings:

A Tent

A tent is a good investment for any outdoor wedding, but it can also be used for other events. Tents come in different sizes and shapes, so you should choose the one that fits your needs. For example, if you need shade or shelter from the elements at your remote wedding ceremony location, then consider a tent. If there is not enough space outside to have a ceremony and reception altogether, then perhaps it would be better to use an indoor space instead of trying to fit everything into one area outside where guests will get sunburned or rain-soaked halfway through their meal!

Outdoor Furniture for Hire

You're going to want to choose outdoor furniture that is comfortable, but this one can get tricky because there are so many different tastes out there! If you have the budget for it, a variety of seating options are available at outdoor furniture hire in Auckland so everyone can find something they like.

Ease of cleaning is essential when choosing your wedding-day furniture. When things inevitably happen—like somebody spilling wine on the tablecloth or someone dropping food in their lap—it's nice if those stains don't stick around too long! You also don't want anything slippery or hard to move around either (you know what happens when people step on wet grass).

There are plenty of other factors worth considering, but hopefully, these will give you some ideas about how to narrow down all those options and find something perfect for your big day!


You'll want to hire a professional piano moving and storage for your wedding. If you can, get multiple quotes from different companies and make sure that they have insurance, a license, and references to check out before hiring them.

Toilet Blocks

It's a good idea to plan a toilet design block for your outdoor event, and not just because it's the polite thing to do. Public toilets are not always available, especially in rural areas where there may be limited access to water or electricity. The last thing you want is your guests having to walk far distances in search of the nearest loo!

Toilet blocks are also essential for outdoor events because they help prevent lawsuits by accommodating disabled guests and keeping them safe when nature calls. A good toilet block should have at least one wheelchair-accessible stall (and preferably more).

Cooling Fans

When planning an outdoor wedding, you’re going to want to consider investing in some kind of commercial cooling fan. Your guests will be grateful to have them on a hot day, and you’ll be happy that you didn’t have to spend thousands of dollars on air conditioning units as other couples do. Plus, it's good for the environment! There are several different types of cooling fans out there, including battery-powered and solar options. You can also rent or buy them, depending on your preference.

Sound System

As the host of your outdoor remote wedding, you will want to ensure that your guests are comfortable and able to hear what's going on. This means having a sound system set up. A good sound system will help you with speeches, music for dancing, and other important parts of your event.

So how do you choose the right one? Look for something that can provide clear audio from all directions in an outdoor space—not just from the stage!

Here's how:

  • Decide where your speakers need to be placed—ideally along each side of the dance floor (where people will be most active). If this isn't possible because of trees or other obstacles, try finding another location where there are no trees or other obstacles blocking them from reaching their intended audience.
  • If there aren't any obvious locations where speakers could go without being blocked by anything else around them then consider getting rid of some low-hanging branches before setting up any equipment so they're out of sight but still able to reach everyone who needs them at least halfway well enough until they get closer

Comfortable Seating for Your Guests

Comfortable Seating
When you’re planning a wedding, it can be easy to forget that your guests are people too. They have feelings, thoughts, and opinions on things like seating arrangements. But don’t worry—we have some tips for making sure everyone is happy and comfortable!

Seating In A Shady Spot
It sounds obvious, but you never know what will happen on an outdoor wedding day. So make sure that all of your guest chairs are in a shaded area of the venue so nobody gets sunburned or overheated (which also means no bright yellow seats). If possible, place them near food stations so guests don't have to walk far from their seats at meal times.

Heat Lamps

Heat lamps are an essential part of any outdoor wedding. You'll want them to keep your guests warm during the ceremony, but you can also use them to keep guests warm in the reception area or during cocktail hour outside.

Heat lamps can be purchased at most hardware stores or online, and they come in a variety of styles, such as parabolic heaters and halogen floodlights with adjustable tilting heads (perfect for directing light where it's needed). Heat lamps are also very easy to set up: just plug them into an extension cord, secure them on a table or other flat surface with bungee cords or weights so they don't blow away in strong winds (if applicable), and then turn them on!

Planning The Catering

Once you've got the location, date, and time of day (and, if possible, theme) locked in, it's time to think about catering. That's because no matter how great your dress is or how perfect your reception decor is, if the food isn't delicious or plentiful enough for everyone who wants to attend—or if it's just bad—you're going to have a very unhappy group of guests on your hands.

You can start by deciding on a menu. If you're opting for traditional catering services during an outdoor wedding at a venue like The Resort at Paws Up, there are likely limited options available but they'll still include some mouthwatering choices like crab cakes made with Bigfork Bay shellfish served with béarnaise sauce; prime rib roasted over an open flame; organic herb chicken breast stuffed with spinach and smoked mozzarella cheese; handmade Italian sausage wrapped in puff pastry topped with tomato basil sauce; grilled marinated pork loin served with mushroom risotto cake and sautéed vegetables; vegetarian lasagna made from locally grown vegetables layered between homemade pasta sheets then baked in our brick ovens until bubbly hot; fresh pear salad tossed in champagne vinaigrette dressing then garnished with candied pecans before being presented tableside by waitstaff dressed as French maids provided courtesy of Boudoir Noir.
