1. HAVE ALTERNATIVES TO BAD WEATHER
Perhaps one of the most important elements when holding outdoor events is the weather , because bad weather can spoil the plans you have established. It is a factor that is often unpredictable, especially in the long term.
Both in business events and in family celebrations, it is advisable not to depend on luck so that that day is not spoiled by the weather.
It is important to have other options in case the wind or rain makes an appearance and you want to continue the day in a protected area.
2.KNOW IF THE PLACE ADAPTS TO THE THEME
The reason for an outdoor celebration can influence the decisions made around its theme. An outdoor space can provide many options, but it is also important to know the type of celebration or the theme that guides the event.
Surely you will not look for the same thing for a corporate event as for a family reunion. Based on that, you can also adapt the space to what you are looking for and play with its different options.
If the celebration is a wedding, you may be looking for a quieter and more elegant environment, with a sober decoration. If we are talking about a more informal event, perhaps there is a riskier and more striking decoration and a more casual atmosphere. But it is a matter of particular tastes and finding a space that suits your preferences.

3. COVER TECHNICAL NEEDS
Lighting or sound can be an important part of holding an event. It must be appreciated that technical solutions are not so easily available in the open air, which may be less complicated indoors.
Perhaps your intention is to use devices to reproduce images or videos or have microphones so that some people can intervene. You may want to go further and have live musical performances. In any case, the functioning of the technical part and that the space adapts to what you need is essential, as well as knowing in advance if the place offers these possibilities.
4. HAVE ADEQUATE SPACE TO DEVELOP ACTIVITIES
In outdoor events, importance can be given to thinking about different entertainment possibilities and opting for activities that may not be conceived in an indoor space or have no possibility of being carried out.
In a family celebration it seems more reasonable that almost all attendees know each other and relate to each other with some ease.
Contact with nature or enjoying fresh air can be an incentive to be more receptive in order to participate in what you propose.
5.MAKE SURE YOU WON’T HAVE PROBLEMS WITH FOOD
If you decide to have catering or restaurant service at your celebration, it is likely that the fact of celebrating it outdoors will influence your decisions.
Even if it is only for the good conservation of food, it is necessary to take into account how this exposure to the open air affects the selected gastronomic products. You can also assess the enjoyment you have of them depending on the space, because it will not be the same to drink something hot in a cold environment than under direct exposure to the sun or to drink something cold in a hot environment or in an environment where that the temperature is lower.
You can look for places where you combine the day outdoors with an indoor dining room.
