Planning a wedding is not an easy thing. There are many different pieces to put together, people to organize, things to plan, and little details to remember. You spend hours upon hours, and months upon months planning every little detail that is involved to pull off even the simplest reception, so that you and your guests have a wonderful time.  Even with all the planning and preparation that you do. There is one thing that is never predictable, especially in our Denver, Colorado area…Weather. Weather is very unpredictable.

So, what do you do if you are having an outdoor wedding and the weather gets bad?

If you are getting married in your backyard or outside at your venue, you will need a backup plan.  Backup plans can be very easy and your reception will run very smoothly,  if you have any experienced caterer, like Saucey’s Catering, working with you. We recommend always discussing backup plans with your caterer, including details of what will occur, how it will occur, and at what time they need to be exceuted. Most often, this just includes the option to move inside and who will have the final say. However, Backup plans can also be made very difficult and confusing if options and details are not discussed.

Saucey’s Catering catered an outside wedding the other day. Everything was outside without a tent; including the Food, DJ, Dance Floor, etc…  We watch the storm rolling in; my staff and I had to make a quick decision, move or not to move.   We decide to move into our planned location, The Garage. Luckily we had discussed this option at our 30 day walkthrough and we knew this was what the bride and groom wanted to do.  It rained heavily for about 10 minutes and then dissipated.   Without this plan the food, tables, linens, and guests would have gotten all wet and would have been cold. However, we were prepared and the reception was beautiful.
