Why are outdoor weddings popular? In recent years, outdoor weddings have become something of a norm. But in the past, they were unusual and unexpected. Just because they’ve become more normalized, however, doesn’t mean that they’re boring. There is a lot of variety to be had in outdoor weddings, and they’re especially important to consider in recent years. If you’re considering your options for wedding venues, you certainly need to think about outdoor options. With that being said, let’s count down some of the biggest benefits of having an outdoor wedding.

1. They’re Safer

In light of COVID-19 becoming an issue for brides and grooms to consider, one major benefit of an outdoor wedding is that it’s actually safer. But even as the pandemic becomes less of an issue, it’s just healthier to have your wedding in the great outdoors. People are less confined, and if anyone at your wedding has something even as minor as a cold, it will be much more difficult for it to spread in an outdoor venue.

2. Aesthetic Appeal

Outdoor weddings are simply beautiful. Think about how stunning a beach wedding would be against the sunset, or how much easier it would be for you to incorporate flowers into your garden wedding. In this sense, you can actually save a lot of money on outdoor weddings as opposed to indoor weddings; much of your decor will be natural. Right now, the typical cost of wedding flowers in the United States is $1,500, though most couples spend between $700 and $2,500. You may not have to worry about that as much if you choose the right outdoor venue.

3. Greater Flexibility

It’s often easier to accommodate your guests when choosing an outdoor venue. Rather than trying to fit your guests into a space of a specific size, you can add decor and chairs to work with the size of your guest list. Most outdoor venues are generally larger than indoor venues anyway.

4. Personalization

Often, outdoor venues are just more personal, or easier to personalize than indoor venues. You can get married in a place where you and your spouse hiked beforehand, or at the same beach where the two of you got engaged!
