Best Practice for Social Distancing: Clean Air & Outdoor Weddings

The great outdoors is the way to go for this year's best destination and Texas weddings.

We all want that special day to be a beautiful event that lives up to all of our expectations. Though current events have complicated destination weddings in addition to Houston, Austin, and Dallas-area gatherings; here is a shorthand list to make your Texas event safe, fun, and memorable!

• Ranches and outdoor venues allow you to skip the crowds and host your guests in beautiful, secluded environments. Dramatic lines of sight, up-lit trees, and glistening sunsets make for radiant photography and video.

• Outdoor seating is a great way to limit crowd concentration. Events in larger, natural settings are apt for limiting density and facilitating social distancing. Expansive site maps create breathtaking environment and stunning scale.

• Hybrid indoor-outdoor events allow for sanitary indoor food service, grandiose seating arrangements, and enough space for everyone to have fun -- Dramatically lit outdoor stages and dance-floors are the best!

• Provide hand sanitization stations throughout wedding campus. These are easy, not expensive, and take up little room. Couple sanitizer with regular touch-points like guestbook signing and food service.

• Outdoor weddings often offer more ample parking.

• Covered outdoor spaces with fans make for ideal dance-floors. Keep the air flowing and the party going!

If you are interested in an outdoor wedding for 2020, Drywater is glad to accommodate with everything you need to create the perfect event including our amazing musical ensembles, additional lighting production, remote PA systems for ceremonies, and additional sound support for cocktail hour. Drywater has several outdoor weddings scheduled for this year, and we can refer you to one of the many gorgeous outdoor venues we work with.

Best Decision We Made

Booking Drywater Band for our wedding reception was hands down the best decision that we made when we were planning the wedding. They are PHENOMENAL, and we are still getting so many compliments on them. Not only are they incredible performers, but working with Andrea on all of the pre-wedding logistics made it so easy. We had the perfect night, and they were such a huge part of it. They were able to play the country music that we love and mixed it in with the best party hits that kept everyone dancing. We can't thank Drywater enough for all that they did to make our wedding unforgettable!
