Jun 13, 2013 03:22 PM Back By Sands Atlantic Beach
When planning an outdoor wedding ceremony, there are several things to keep in mind. Are your guests going to be comfortable? What would happen if it were to rain? Can anything else go wrong? With these tips you can use at our wedding venue on Long Island, your big day will surely go very smoothly.

An outdoor wedding ceremony calls for close attention to the weather. Even if you're sure the weather will be beautiful, there are a few precautions you can take to ensure it's the perfect day.
- Have a few umbrellas on hand in case it is unexpectedly raining.
- Set up a table with fans in case it gets warm.
- Have water available to keep guests hydrated in summer.
- Have a backup venue. The Sands offers rooms that can accommodate large numbers in case the weather takes an unexpected turn.

When you're planning an outdoor wedding ceremony, it's important to realize you won't have the same sound amplification as you would indoors. Make sure you rent and test a sound system out prior to the wedding. If it isn't strong enough, ask the DJ or band if you can use their amplification system for the ceremony.

Decorations and Food
Keeping decorations simple is the key to a successful outdoor wedding ceremony. Use flowers that can survive through various types of weather and keep extra embellishments to a minimum. Build a menu that can withstand heat and that is simple enough to hold without getting scraps all over the place. Foods that would require refrigeration should not be included. Also, avoid desserts that might melt.

There are many precautions to take when planning an outdoor wedding ceremony. Be sure to have a backup plan and a wedding venue on Long Island that can be helpful if there are unexpected weather issues. There is no need to worry if you are prepared and have planned for anything that can happen.
