Holding your wedding reception outdoors can be risky because of the unpredictable weather. However, if you are getting married on a summer day, having “rain on your parade” is less likely to happen. It’s summertime in the Philippines once again and if you consider having your wedding reception under the sun (if you haven’t already), here are some cute set up and details to inspire you.
Temperature can rise really high during midday to early afternoon so it is best to schedule your wedding ceremony and reception when the sun is not scorching hot. Sunrise wedding is perfect however if it is impossible for you, starting the ceremony at 7:00 to 8:00 am would be ideal. For weddings during this time of the day, you may want to provide your entourage and guests with fan to keep them cool throughout the ceremony and reception. Along with sunglasses, it can also double as your giveaway or souvenir. The latter can be costly though so if you are on a budget, the fan is your best bet.
If you are not a morning person, schedule your wedding ceremony between 3:00 to 4:00 pm thus you will have a sunset reception. For late afternoon outdoor reception, make sure that everyone is safe from mosquito bites and other insects. Provide easy access to bug sprays to allow them to enjoy the celebration more. You can even personalized the spray’s packaging to make it as your added wedding favor.
Venues in Iloilo ideal for outdoor reception include Casa La Granja in La Paz, Esca’s Garden in Aurora Subdivision, Puerto Real Poolside and many others.
