Choose the right park. Ideally, it should be at driving distance for most guests whom you plan to invite. Visit three to four different parks and make the authorities aware of your plans. Look for a park which features gazebos, waterfalls, gardens and other memorable attractions because such attractions can be a great wedding backdrop.

If you live in an area which is prone to unpredictable weather, you need to be careful when planning to get married in a park. You do not want it to be raining cats and dogs and not have a shelter, tent or pavilion in the park. Read the weather forecast report before choosing a date for the wedding.

Send invitations to the guests making them aware that the marriage will be held in a park. Invite all your relatives, close friends and business contacts because there is literally no limitation on the number of guests you can invite in a park wedding. To make the event more exciting, arrange reception and the actual ceremony in the same park.

Choose if you want the wedding ceremony to be formal or casual. In a casual park wedding, you can have things like volleyball or even swimming as part of your reception. However, in a formal park wedding, there are no such liberties available.
To put your guests at ease, rent comfortable chairs and preferably a tent as well, to keep out bad weather, should it set in. Set up chairs and allow space for guests to move around freely. Moreover, the arrangement of chairs needs to be immaculate.
