How to Choose the Best Garden Location

On Sunny Saturday around December last year, I married my husband on a top of a hill facing the famous and beautiful Taal Volcano Lake, Philippines. It poured for part of that day, but thanks to careful planning — and, you know, being really excited —I barely noticed.  The wedding ceremony went on with a bright shining sun and a cold windy breeze.

As a girl I always dreamed of having a fairytale wedding venue and arrangement.  I knew I wanted the event to happen somewhere very green and has a nice scenery.Something whimsical where I can see some flowers, hills or lake. I planned for almost a year and a half to find the best place and not to worry about the weather. Most of the garden wedding venue has tents, pavilions and small ballroom as their backup in case of any weather changes. 

This article provides some ideas for you to consider when planning your outdoor wedding, to ensure that even if the weather isn't on your side, good planning is and the wedding will go ahead according to plan.
