I need some objective thoughts on an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour, and what temperature limits you think would necessitate moving to our indoor Plan B.
Background: Our ceremony is planned for 4pm the first weekend of October in MA. It's outdoors in a garden adjacent to our indoor reception venue. Ceremony will be short-ish (~20-25 mins), followed by a cocktail hour in the garden. There are trees/shady areas to sit, but no actual tent. We have a complete Plan B inside the venue in case of inclement weather.
My question is, what temperature would it need to get down or up to for you to absolutely NOT want to be outside for almost 2 hours? New England weather is unpredictable so it could be 35F and snowing or 85F and hot. I'm hoping for the average 65-70F, but that's about all I can do.
Obviously if there is any precipitation or extreme temps it will be moved inside, but... would under 60F be the "cold" limit? Over 80 for hot? I want to set some limits so we know the game plan if the weather ends up sucking.
Just need your honest and expert opinions, Knotties. Gracias.
