The great outdoors is a wonderful place to be, especially in a hot Summer. Simply going outside can have huge benefits on your physical and mental wellbeing, so next time you’re planning a party or event, why not take it outside?
We can preach about the wonders of the great outdoors all day, but you always have to be realistic, and sometimes it is going to rain. The best thing you can do is organize some cover!
You can find plenty of party tents to rent online that will provide great protection against the wind, rain, or even the sun! Move the food, bar, and tables under your tent and your guests will be comfortable no matter what.
Bringing music outdoors can be a little more difficult, considering you need to be very aware of the wiring and any electrical components outside. That being said, gigs are held outside all the time, so how can you get that sound quality on a budget?
There are plenty of companies online who will organize your outdoors sound systems for you, for a cost. A good idea could be to hire a local band who will bring their own equipment! That way you get a live performance to give your event the edge!
Throughout the day, your outdoors event will be entirely weather dependant, but no matter the weather, you’ll need to organize some lighting if your event goes on past sunset!
Outdoors lighting can be as cheap or as expensive as you like. From full, elaborate lighting set-ups to a few spotlights hidden amongst the trees. You should go for a lighting hire company that works on all kinds of different events to make sure you’re getting all of the expertise while keeping the costs low.
Some people adore party planning, others hate it! Finding bands and caterers can be great fun, but getting into the intricate and vital details of guest lists, timings, travel and accommodation can become an administrative nightmare.
Get to grips with what a professional party planner does on a day to day basis, and get very good at keeping notes! Party planning can be stressful, but if you follow some planning guidance, you’ll make it through to the big day without a hitch.
If the rain comes, then your wonderful outdoors setting could turn into a slippery, muddy nightmare. The last thing you want is for your guests to be slipping, sliding, and splashing their way through your party!
Get ahead of the weather and get some outdoors floor panels for your event. Rent these out and build walkways and platforms at the most important areas of your venue. That way, if the weather fails, your event will live on!
Bringing an event outdoors comes with challenges, but if you follow these simple steps and tricks, and if you’re planned enough, you should be able to overcome whatever the outdoors throws at you!
