My husband and I wanted a small, intimate, outdoor wedding, so we got married in May. You would think that an evening wedding in May would be a lovely occasion, but unfortunately it was incredibly hot. We got married in front of a lovely gazebo which sat beside a stream while our guests baked in the hot sun. In my mind, I pictured it very differently. An outdoor wedding can be risky in any season, but I wish I’d thought the time of year through a bit more before we set the date.
