We love a gorgeous ballroom venue just as much as the next person, but there's just something about an outdoor wedding—maybe it's the sunshine and views—that makes us feel excited (especially if you have an equally lovely plan B in place in case of a weather emergency). 

That's why we've rounded up some of the prettiest outdoor wedding receptions for inspiration. From desert bashes to urban rooftops, there's an outdoor venue to suit every style—see every stunning photo below.
