I have to admit, I've only attempted to do it once when I had a ladies brunch outside and even though it was fun, I thought it was tough to orchestrate.
Here are a couple of outside gathering from two beautiful blogs. The first is the header photo from Maya's blog, Completely Coastal. Doesn't it make you want to live close to the beach and have friends that love to entertain like this?
Emily Newman's website Once Wed.
What do you think of outside weddings? I have been to a few outsides weddings. Two of my closest friends did outside weddings, one on Orcas Island (off the Seattle coast) and the other in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Both were magical.
I was too nervous to ever contemplate an outside wedding because of the unpredictability of the weather and the bugs. I'm the kind of person that will attract any mosquito within a hundred mile radius so I'm terrible with outside gatherings but I do love them.
