For those of you who had heaters outdoors (not in a tent) what did you use? What did you like about it? What didn't you like about it?
Looking at possibly rescheduling for mid-October in Illinois. 3 out of the past 5 years it's been +/- 80, one year it was just under 70 but 5 years ago it was only 40! The 30-year average is between 65-70. No rain since 2006. If it was crazy cold like in 2009 I'd just skip the Outdoor Ceremony and have it indoors where the reception would be, but if its just jacket weather I'd like to just get some heaters for the ceremony to keep people comfortable.
I was looking at propane patio heaters, the bonus of course being after the wedding we could use them outside when cooking or grilling out in the spring/fall. The small tanks supposedly run for 3-4 hours, which is more than enough time for a short & sweet ceremony. We could also then relocate them to the porch of the reception area for people wanting to spend time outdoors. They aren't super attractive, but I doubt anyone sitting close to one would complain about how it looks. Thoughts?
