Roughing it up
Spring is pretty but can also be messy and no one wants to their wedding to be messy as snow is melting, rain is falling and kids are enjoying themselves by splashing in puddles. However, by planning, time can be saved by allowing things to be stylishly rough around the edges, rather than having to contend with nature and attempt to keep everything spotless. For the seats outside, try not to have those expensive chairs that must be kept clean but instead, have or look for some wooden chairs that give the ceremony a rustic feel and pretty much not ruined by some grass or mud. Small adjustments like these actually makes your theme more authentic as well as save you time on planning on how to keep nature out.
