Getting in and out of the wheelchair all the time is no fun – that’s why it’s a practical idea to have the ceremony and reception in the same location. Warning: Outdoor spaces are charming, but difficult. An undesirable combination of grass, rain and gravel can be neutralized by mats or boards. Ask the organizer if they can provide these to create a stable surface.
