Everything You Need To Know About Calgary Outdoor Wedding Venues

Fascinating with its nature, Calgary offers very pleasant outdoor wedding venues for couples who want to have an alfresco celebration. Restaurants with large gardens, cruises, golf clubs and botanical gardens can be some of your many options.

In addition, hotels with a lush garden adorned with big trees and colourful flowers can create a pleasant ambiance for your big day. You can find everything you are looking for in Calgary, from big to small outdoor wedding venues.

If you want to have such a wedding outdoors, we recommend taking precautions against adverse weather conditions. For example, before making an agreement with the venue owners, you can ask them whether they will offer you an alternative indoor space against sudden rain and wind.

In addition, many places can have retractable ceilings. Such an option may also be enough for your wedding not to mess up. If you still do not want to leave your job to chance, you can have an idea about the weather on your wedding day with the weather tool.

If you want to feel the fresh air and romantic ambience of the outdoors and the cozy and intimate feeling of indoors, you can consider having a tented wedding. By doing this, you can also make sure that your wedding runs seamlessly regardless of the weather.

Decoration Ideas For Outdoor Wedding Venues in Calgary

It would be ideal for you to decide on a wedding theme before decorating your outdoor wedding venue in Calgary, where you will host your big day. In this way, you can get a harmonious image throughout your wedding. You can determine your wedding theme according to your hobbies, favourite colours and decor items.

You can elevate your venue by hanging chandeliers on a wooden arch. Putting colourful, large flowers to the altar guarantees luxury, and they will look perfect on your wedding photographs. Purple, pink and white floral arrangements look perfect in outdoor wedding ceremony locations.

A lush floral welcome sign is another great idea for outdoor weddings in Calgary. Your guests will not be able to take their eyes off it. You can also use chalkboard signs for your seating chart, table numbers, and stationaries included in your wedding.

If you plan to have a forest wedding, you can consider using benches instead of traditional white chairs. More guests will fit into them, creating a more cozy and intimate atmosphere. For more ideas on forest weddings, check out our article!

Wine barrels are one of the hottest decor items in Calgary outdoor venues. They go perfectly with rustic weddings. You can adorn them with colourful flowers or use them as drink and food stations or as tables at your cocktail reception.

Recently, one of the popular outdoor wedding decor items we have been seeing is using indoor furniture outdoors. You can create a homey vibe by making a lounge area where your guests can relax with couches, or you can lay carpets on the floor for the ultimate country-themed wedding.

Last but not least, you can incorporate swings adorned with pink flowers. They are the perfect props for romantic wedding photographs. Also, you can take a break elegantly by sitting on a swing and letting your inner child walk in.

Wedding Dress and Suit Options For Outdoor Weddings in Calgary

Springtime brings a wealth of beautiful wedding dress options, from delicately structured lace to goddess-like minimalism to airy chiffon. Experiment with colour for your own gown, using inspiration from all that lovely garden flora.

Spring wedding fashion can be gentle and feminine, with petal pinks, light lavenders, and even the tiniest tones of gray. On the other hand, mild temperatures lend themselves to strong, fashion-forward designs, such as daring prints, vivid hues, and architectural appliqués.

And if you've been itching to expose some skin after the winter, now's your opportunity to do so in something short, sexy, and ideal for late-night grass dancing.

The important thing here is your choice of shoes. The shoes you choose for an outdoor wedding should suit the venue. You don't want to be a bride sinking into the ground. That's why we recommend you choose flat bridal shoes. You will look very elegant with a shabby braid and flower crown for your hair.

You can choose groom suits in the colours suitable for the outdoor wedding and your wedding theme. Do not forget that light tones will suit this concept very well. If you want to be more comfortable, you can also consider linen suit options.
