    Ideas for what, specifically? The best advice is to have a tent or another backup plan since weather is so unpredictable.

    What kind of food do you want to do? Are you leaning towards a specific theme or time of year?

    I’m having an outdoor wedding. We’re doing a plated service and are trying to keep decor minimal. Lantern/candle center pieces and maybe a couch or 2 off to the side.

    There are lots of fall decor ideas on Pinterest if that's the sort of thing you're going for. As for the food, you'll want to have warmers/ice to keep everything at the right temperature and probably covers for the dishes to keep bugs from getting into it. A tent over all the food and tables for guest is the best way to go in my opinion.

    We had an indoor/outdoor event. The food was kept inside, the drinks were inside and out for more convenience. We did have a tent and could have brought the whole thing inside if necessary but were so lucky the weather was perfect for our big day. I went back and forth on the tent since the weather was looking better and better, but it was nice for guests to get out of the sun too. If you are strictly outside I can't recommend a tent enough. You may also need a generator so keep that in mind. Even if you want to have an outdoor feel, you can do that with an outdoor dance floor and some cocktail tables. But the food should be kept protected as much as possible.

    I had an outside wedding, ceremony, cocktail and reception. Although it was very windy at first so I couldn’t really wear my veil I actually loved how it all turned out. I’ll share some pics.

    I did! We did it on a porch though with shade and under a tree. I offered water bottles and fans. It was 95 degrees (SO hot) so if yours is outside in heat do that and if it’s potentially cool, bring umbrellas and/or blankets for your guests!

    I had an outdoor ceremony and usually I feel like when things are outdoors it needs less decor

    Thank you! And I agree about less decor is needed outside. All we added were some vines on the railings with flowers

    This is our venue. We are also having an outdoor ceremony and reception. The venue provides all the lighting like the string lights.
    Using lanterns as center pieces with some greenery maybe eucalyptus.

    We just had an outdoor wedding Saturday. It was perfect. My only word of caution is that I became obsessed with the weather. I didn't have an inside option. Thank goodness the wedding was gorgeous! We did a rustic theme with blue, Ivory and burlap as our colors. Our entire wedding was around $5k.
