Summer is in full swing, and so are summer weddings. Sunny days, warm nights, minimal chance of rain, and pretty photo ops lend to the season’s popularity for I do’s. On the flip side, high temperatures and beaming rays can make outdoor ceremonies miserable for your wedding guests.
When it comes to your Big Day, I am a firm believer that you should have your wedding cake and eat it, too. Here are a few tips on how to have your dream outdoor nuptials, and beat the heat.
Create an oasis. Set up water stations at the ceremony. Go the extra mile with fancy glassware and infused water. You may need to increase your rental order, but your guests will appreciate the effort to make them comfortable.
Fans your family and friends. Provide fans that double as programs. Nothing beats the heats like a fan on a hot summer day. Contact your designer to create a fan that will continue your stationery story from your invitation design. Make sure the paper you choose has the weight to create a small breeze.
Throw them some shade. Give out sunglasses to your guests. Depending on the direction of the sun, the glare could hit your guests right in the eye and hinder them from witnessing your vows. Also, the sunglasses can double as your favor. Don’t forget to personalize them with your names and wedding date.
Pass out the pops. Boozy popsicles for your cocktail hour on the lawn is the perfect refresher after your ceremony in the sun. Serve up the refreshments without the liquor for children and non-drinkers.
