As a bride, one should wear a dress that is flowing and not made of a thick fabric.

The Weather: You should also consider the weather since you are having an outdoor wedding. For the comfort of the wedding party and the guests, don’t schedule the ceremony during the heat of the day. You will also want to have a backup plan in case it rains or the winds are too strong. A hefty wind, sweltering heat or rain can ruin everything in your wedding.
