So, you’re planning your next event to be outdoors, maybe a local park or beach?? (Good choices!)
Before you start planning your décor or anything else, there a few things of mucho importance that you need to think about. Here goes:
Permit – different rules apply when it comes to city parks, depending on the size of your event. If your local public green requires a permit, it’s imperative that you get this done well in advance.
Shoes – Comfortable. Heels and grass don’t play well together.
Music level – There may be noise ordinances that you will have to abide by. Uninvited guests, like park & recreation officials, might put a damper on the festivities.
Time – Consider if there are other events going on in the park at same time you want to host your event. It may be challenging to create an intimate atmosphere with other activities going on around you.
Additional equipment – Tents, jump castles, or anything that requires ground stakes may require special permission.
Outdoor spaces can provide the perfect backdrop for various types of events. However, there are special considerations that hosts have to keep in mind before they enjoy the outdoors with their guests. If you find yourself at a loss for what to do next, call a planner, they’ll know what to do 😉
