You don’t want it too hot to where you and your guest are going to be perspiring or the sun directly in your eyes, or too cold where it is freezing, what if it is raining? No one wants to have to hold an umbrella. None of your guests will want to stay long enough to enjoy themselves and miss all your special moments.
Consider your out-of-town guest, where they are traveling from and the time of year, weather, and road conditions.

Will the bugs be out? Do you want to do an elegant dress-up look for a fancy tea party, business casual for more of a brunch menu, or something very casual for more like a breakfast buffet? What kind of food do you want? Adding alcohol vs, no alcohol.
