Imagine having to convey a creative idea in a sentence! Communicating a special event idea through Twitter in 140 characters or less challenges the creativity and communication skills of professionals in the event planning industry. Describing a tent, color scheme, or an entire event suddenly becomes a daunting task when it must be done in so few words.

We've compiled a list of the top 50 Twitter accounts (including links to the accounts -- woohoo, easy for you!) for outdoor wedding planning to inspire more effective tweets about new wedding trends and ideas. The list includes professionals in every category from DIY themes to air conditioned tents for outdoor weddings and offers insight, helpful tips and news from all aspects of the industry.
