Bridle Oaks Barn- DeLand, FL

This year rustic barn weddings have been all the rave. But there are some harsh realities that you don’t really notice behind those Instagram pictures. Florida is an excellent place to have an outdoor wedding. However, it all depends on the “season”. I say the word season very lightly because Florida is notorious for it’s fickle weather. Throughout a good chunk of the year it is raining and the other half it is extremely HOT. This is not to discourage anyone who plans on having an outdoor wedding. I am simply stating that there are some truths that must be taken into consideration. Once, these minor details are set aside, Florida is actually a perfect location for an outdoor wedding. If you’re planning one soon, late fall and early winters are your friends. When you are venue hunting, finding a place like Bridle Oaks is great. It requires little to no decorations which give it that effortless feel. Add some Maison Jars, uniques signage, and greenery to complete you rustic wedding dreams. For all my bride to be’s planning an outdoor wedding soon, keep these three things in mind:

  1. Timing is everything

  2. Always have a weather backup plan

  3. There’s no such thing as too much greenery

Hope you all find inspiration from our latest project. Let us know if you have any tips for outdoor weddings.

Until next time my lovelies!
