While outdoor ceremonies can be picturesque, they can also be absolutely miserable experiences for the guests when it is very hot, very windy, or raining. Worse, the original site could be dangerous to all concerned. The bride is the last to arrive, generally is driven up to the ceremony site in an air conditioned vehicle, and everything starts once she arrives. Your partner, wedding party, celebrant and guests have all been there waiting for some time, and many may have had to park some distance away and walk to the ceremony site.
