Indoor vs. Outdoor Wedding Venues: Which Is Right For You? (+ Fan C Designs Wedding Dress Recommendations For Each!)

Indoor versus outdoor venues is a discussion couples have when they start planning their wedding. Both venue types present their own pros and cons that may affect where you hold your ceremony/reception. Here are the pros and cons of each venue type to consider, and Fan C Designs  dresses that will look wonderful in that venue.

Indoor Venue Pros

One of the biggest pros for an indoor venue is the ability to have a wedding no matter what the weather is. Because you can’t control the weather, and depending on the season, it could be sunny one minute and then raining the next, it’s good to have a place where you know your special day won’t be impacted by the weather.  This goes for the ceremony, the reception, and nay other events you have scheduled for that day.

If you’re looking to get married at an indoor wedding venue, here are some Fan C Designs dresses to consider:

Indoor Venue Cons

Lack of natural scenery is a big con to an indoor venue and is something to consider if you’re someone who wants to include nature in your wedding or you are both the outdoorsy type. The lack of natural lighting goes hand in hand with this, so keep this in mind when thinking about your wedding photos.

Another downside to think about when looking at indoor versus outdoor venues is the lack of space. Outdoor venues tend to have more options when it comes to spaces to host your wedding, while an indoor will usually have fewer location options.

Outdoor Venue Pros

Nature is a big plus to an outdoor wedding, especially a beach wedding in the summer.  In the spring, you could get married in a garden setting and incorporate the local flowers and greenery into your decor. The turning of the leaves and fall colors are the perfect backdrop for an autumn wedding.

Regardless of season if you have a large guest list  an outdoor venue will allow you to comfortably  seat and accommodate your guests. An added plus is most outdoor venues have multiple locations for your guests to mingle and enjoy your wedding.

Outdoor Venue Cons

Weather is the biggest con to an outdoor wedding. You just never know what the weather is going to do, and you will be stuck if the weather changes at any moment. Having a Plan B is needed for rain, wind, and heat in the summer which will put a damper on your wedding day.

Costs are a consideration for an outdoor wedding, particularly if the venue does not have standard amenities like a kitchen, tents, lighting, etc.  Having to add these will increase your wedding budget.

Consider these as you discuss and make your final decision as to what wedding venue type you want. Think about what works best for you and your guests and the time of year. For more gowns, check out our bridal collection.
