Actually there is no direct way to create a recurring meeting repeating on 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month in Outlook. However, you can create two monthly recurring meetings to achieve the same goal. Please do as follows:

1. In the Calendar view, please click Home > New Meeting to create a new meeting.

2. Now a blank Meeting window opens. Please click Meeting > Recurrence. See screenshot:

3. The Appointment Recurrence dialog box comes out, please: (1) In the Recurrence Pattern section, please check Monthly option, and then specify The first Wednesday of every 1 month(s) option; (2) Specify the Appointment time and Range of recurrence as you need; (3) Click the OK button.

4. It returns to the Meeting Series window, please add attendees, subject, location and meeting content as you need, finally click the Send button.

So far, it has created the first monthly recurring meeting which repeats on the first Wednesday of every month.

5. In the Calendar view, please select any occurrence of the new recurring meeting you created just now, drag and drop it into another date with holding the Ctrl key.

6. Now the selected occurrence is copied to a new date. Please double click to open the pasted one.

7. In the Meeting window, please click Meeting > Recurrence. See screenshot:

Hello,
In the Appointment Recurrence dialog box, please do as follows: (1) In the Recurrence Pattern section, check Weekly option. Input 5 to set the email recur every 5 weeks on, and then check Saturday in the checkbox.
(2). In the Range of recurrence, specify the date range. If you want to pattern to run endlessly, you can choose the No end date option.
Then Click the OK button.

Hope it helps. Have a nice day.
Sincerely,
Mandy

For clarity, the series for both the first Wednesday and third Wednesday are two separate meeting series, not one.

Hello T,
Thanks for your comment. We do need to create the Recurrence twice so the meeting can recur on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday Of every month. But in essence, it is one meeting because the appointment time and location are not changed.
Sincerely,
Mandy

I want the event to reoccur on the 1st Sunday of each month and the last 2 Sundays of each month, is it possible to use the tool in that way?

Hello Jo,
Glad to help. You can use the tool like the article twice to create the meeting reoccurring on the 1st Sunday of each month and the last 2 Sundays of each month. The first one is to reoccur on the 1st Sunday of each month. The second one is to reoccur on the last 2 Sundays of each month.
Sincerely,
Mandy
