You can have an elaborate outdoor wedding or a simple one. The wedding can be formal or informal. The type of outdoor wedding should be determined by the size of the venue, the number of guests, the type of guests, the weather conditions, the laws and regulations, the décor, and the money you have. The outdoor wedding should be planned in such a way that it makes use of the whole grounds. You should make sure that the grounds have toilets, water, and electricity before the wedding day.

A popular outdoor wedding idea is a formal wedding with a sit-down dinner. Receptions to such weddings are usually held under reception tents, but the actual ceremonies are held under a gazebo or under an arbor.
