Jonathan and Elizabeth's outdoor summer wedding

We had a beautiful outdoor summer wedding this weekend. It was hot, but beautiful! Elizabeth and Jonathan were blessed with friends and family attending their wedding and reception. A large, shaded, oak tree was the backdrop for the ceremony. Shades of pink and ivory flower balls were hung from the banches.

A tent was provided for the food area, catered by Sweet Gum Bottom B&B. A wide menu of smoked brisket, shrimp and grits, cheesy potato bake, broccoli salad, marinated vegetables, pasta salad, oriental salad and manderin orange and rice salad was served for a 11:30 lunch. Also, rolls and plenty of liquids to cool everyone down. Delicious brides cake, groom's cake and tea cakes were enjoyed by everyone.

Thanks so much Elizabeth and Jonathan for choosing Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast. It was a pleasure to have your wedding here! Congratulation!

Summer Outdoor Wedding Tips

We love our outdoor weddings here at Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast and would like to pass on some tips to help you plan your outdoor event.

1. If using lighted candles, place them in glass hurricanes to prevent them from blowing out.

2. Keep in mind the terrain of the wedding isle. High heels can get caught in the grass and cause a stumble down the isle.

3. Face guests away from the sun.

4. If your cake is going to be outside as well, choose a firmer icing to prevent a meltdown.

5. Be sure to have plenty of liquids. Your guests will be thirsty.

6. Provide your guests a fan. A good way to do that is have the rpogram in the shape of a fan.

7.In the summer, use resin chairs. Metal becomes very hot when in the sun.

8. Be mindful of foods that do not hold their temperature well, (such as mayo).

9. Have items secure so that wind does not pose a problem.

10. Have a backup plan.
