Planning your wedding is one of the most exciting times of your life. It also quickly becomes one of the most stressful.
Every couple wants their wedding to be a reflection of them. A representation of who they are as a couple. Finding the balance between telling their story while avoiding the cookie-cutter trap or “just another factory-produced wedding” can prove to be quite the challenge. Luckily here at Indian Ridge, we are the perfect solution!
The beauty of our property provides the perfect, natural canvas to make your own. Here are a few tips to help you discover the benefits of an outdoor setting you may not have considered!
Outdoor Weddings Save Money
Save Money! An outdoor venue, surrounded by natural beauty, requires less décor. You can still have beautiful and classy and not have the cost of a Ballroom.
Outdoor Weddings Accommodate More Guests
Who to put on the “B” list? Struggling to decide who to invite? Have you already begun to incorporate the dreaded “B” list (You know, the list of people that will receive the coveted invite after you’ve received some regrets from your “A” list… ) Typically couples find they struggle with this, whether due to budget or indoor venue capacity restraints. Why not eliminate this and have your wedding outdoors, rent a tent, and invite them all?
Outdoor Weddings Offer Many Theme Choices
Really put your stamp of who you are as a couple in the details! Country Chic? Rustic Elegance? Natural Beauty & Love of the outdoors? Do you go hiking or apple picking in the fall? Does that speak to who you are as a couple? Then an outdoor wedding is more than perfect for you.
Do the words Timeless and Classic speak to your style? You guessed it – outdoor wedding is still perfect. With natural settings (fancy having a picnic in an Apple Orchard?), picturesque backgrounds (Have you seen our waterfalls?) and the right lighting (perhaps a perfect Hudson Valley sunset?) you can really make it “yours” and have it all.
Be Happy (and romantic)
Care for a dose of Happiness? Studies show that being outdoors improves the mood and romance of any occasion.
