The warm weather has well and truly arrived, bringing with it plenty of stunning outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions. Whether you choose to have a dreamy garden wedding or a romantic reception under the sparkling stars, there are many factors to consider when planning your dream day. From marquees to lighting, here’s how to say “I do” in comfort.
Prevent your vows from being drowned out by investing in a quality PA system. With sound easily lost outside, no-one wants to miss the bride and groom saying, “I do”! The larger a crowd is, the harder it will be to hear the ceremony. From speeches to music, a PA system will ensure great sound no matter the location.
With the unpredictability of Queensland’s weather, renting a marquee provides a haven against wind, sun and rain. Guests will become extremely uncomfortable sitting in direct sunlight on a hot day and you don’t want strong winds tipping, breaking or blowing your beautifully themed decorations away! Furthermore, marquee structures provide a blank canvas with decorative advantages to incorporate silk lining, glass walls, chandeliers and decorative lighting. To capture the beauty of the night sky, consider a clear roof marquee to elevate your wedding and step up the wow factor.
Set the mood and illuminate the celebration of your special day by choosing the right lighting. For an outdoor wedding, utilise nature’s walls and wrap the trunks of surrounding trees with fairy lights to create a warm glow and whimsical atmosphere. Or why not drape a wall of string lights behind your dessert table, VIP table or dance floor to highlight a special area.
Keeping food and beverages at an optimal temperature during a wedding reception is crucial for maintaining food safety and quality. If food storage is limited or you are away from a fully equipped refrigeration, a mobile cool room is the key to delivering fresh food and ice-cold beverages. At GC Event Hire, our cool rooms have ample interior shelving, are temperature adjustable and trailer mounted.
When it comes to outdoor weddings, proper seating is vital for guest comfort. A popular option for any wedding style, our Americana White Folding Chairs can be left alone or stylishly decorated using adornments. Great for large weddings as they can easily be folded for transport.
