A Few Notes on Planning an Outdoor Wedding

Hosting an outdoor wedding has its challenges. This is the south and afternoon and evening showers are common in the summer, thunderstorms and tornadoes are common in the Spring and the Fall can be hot and sunny or cold and rainy - you just never know. Just make sure you have an indoor or covered backup option if you are planning an outdoor wedding in Atlanta or anywhere in Georgia really. Most of the outdoor venues here on our list offer an indoor or tented option so you probably can't go wrong. Also be sure you have some sort of bathroom facilities available to your guests. Whether you rent portable potties or the venue has an indoor option, don't forget that detail.
