Summer weddings are wonderful but rising temperatures can make the happy couple and their guests uncomfortable. Here are some tips on how to stay cool on the big day.
1. Provide fans
If your ceremony is taking place outside on a really hot day consider providing your guests with handhold fans. Pick fans in your wedding color or customize them by printing the ceremony program on the fans.
2. Look for the shade
An outdoor ceremony or reception is much more enjoyable for your guests if they are shielded by some trees, a tent or canopy.
3. Keep your guests hydrated
Make sure to provide a water station or some bottled water even prior to the ceremony. When guests arrive they can have a cold drink while waiting for the ceremony to start.
4. Keep things light
Consider the temperatures when picking out your dress, the groom’s suit and the attire of your bridal party. Choose light materials like chiffon or organza for the dresses. Also use waterproof make up and a light powdered foundation.
5. Offer a cool treat
Guests will love a refreshing treat on a hot summer wedding. Consider having an ice cream station or popsicles for desert.
