Milwaukee Wedding Planning: Weather Considerations
The last thing a bride wants on her wedding day is rain, but if you're having an August wedding in Milwaukee, there's a good chance it could happen. If you're planning an outdoor wedding, it's important to create a plan B in case the weather turns gray. The hottest month is June, but temperatures usually level off around the lower to mid 80's. With the cooling breeze from the lake, an outdoor wedding can be particularly pleasant during the late spring and summer.
Milwaukee Wedding Planning: Tips and Ideas
When you're planning your wedding in Milwaukee, it's important to take several things into consideration. If you'll have out of town guests visiting for your wedding, they could have difficulties finding hotels (or reasonably priced hotels) during late June and early July. This is when the popular Summerfest happens, billed the World's Largest Music Festival. Tourists and locals crowd the 23,000-capacity Marcus Amphitheater.
Destination Milwaukee Wedding Planning
If your Milwaukee wedding is a destination wedding, be sure to visit each of your vendors before the wedding takes place. It is especially important to visit your ceremony and reception venues. Familiarize yourself with the area, as well as last-minute vendors that you may need to utilize once you arrive. Creating a map of your reception and ceremony locations, hotel, and transportation options and routes for your guests is also a great idea. With a little planning and preparation, your Milwaukee wedding can be wonderful!
