I'm having my wedding next December in an outdoor venue. It is a covered gazebo, which means that all the guests will have something over their heads but it is open on the sides.
Being in Texas, December can be anywhere from 80 and humid to 32 and hailing. We do have the option of using an indoor chapel in case it is absolutely horrid...but I really want to have it in the gazebo if it's possible!
Getting to my actual question If it is a nice, but still pretty crisp, evening, I'm trying to brainstorm budget friendly ways to provide warmth for my guests. Any ideas? Half of them will be from out of town, so asking everyone to bring a blanket isn't quite possible. I've been pricing outdoor heaters and they aren't really in our budget. Would it be too weird to ask our in-town guests to bring blankets? I toyed with the idea of ordering a bunch of nice fleece blankets and only using if needed...but that still is a few hundred at least! Or what else am I not thinking of?
