Aimportant part of wedding planning is choosing your ceremony style. When choosing your ceremony style, you need to keep a few things in mind: time of day, season, and venue. All of these have a impact on how you plan your wedding.
Temperature and light are important things to consider when planning your wedding outside. You want to avoid starting your ceremony at the hottest or coldest times of day. Something else to consider when planning an outdoor wedding is when does the sunset? If the sun is too bright, everyone will be squinting and the lighting is more harsh in photographs. If it is dark outside, where ever the flash hits will be beautifully lit, where ever it doesn’t will be completely dark.
Your attire decisions will be also be impacted. For an outdoor wedding, you probably want to avoid a cathedral-length train for your gown. Your shoes should be grass-friendly as well. For your guests’ sakes, you might want to make the wedding a bit less formal so that they feel comfortable being outside.
If you are getting married in a place of worship, you need to find out what type of gown is acceptable. Most likely you will have to have your shoulders covered. You also won’t want to wear anything with too low of a neckline or back.
Many place of worship have specific times when you can have your wedding because they have services in the evening. If you want your wedding reception to last into the wee hours of the night, you may have to plan for a break between your ceremony and reception.
Ultimately, your wedding ceremony style should be a reflection of you and your personality. What type of wedding do you want to have. Formal and elegant? Casual and comfortable? All options are available, so take the time to decide what will make you the most comfortable
