Outdoors or indoors? Countryside or harborside? There's so many options when it comes to choosing a venue for your big day.

6. Prepare for unpredictable weather

If you're going to have an outdoor wedding, it's essential to have a backup plan in case the sky goes awry. You might want to have a tent or gazebo at the ready... or if you're not afraid to have a little rain, you could even get a clear umbrella to help walk you down the aisle!
