If your wedding is planned to be in the midst of the summer months, it’s important to keep in mind ways for you and your guests to stay cool. From your outdoor ceremony to dancing all night long, we want everyone safe and prevent any overheating!
The hottest time of day is around 3:00 pm in the summertime, to avoid this, schedule an evening ceremony for a gorgeous sunset wedding.
Hose it down! Take a hose to any concrete, stone, or brick walking areas to cool it down.
Keep the ceremony quick and simple, no more than 30 minutes. At least while you’re outside, you can always bring readings into the air-conditioned reception area!
Water stations! This adorable station even has wedding programs transformed into fans and cute parasols to keep everyone cool and hydrated.
Wedding Day Look
Buy a dress in breathable fabrics! The fabrics that will keep you cooler are chiffon, natural silk dupion, organza, and tulle.
Beware of SPF! It may sound crazy but SPF on can make your face look very pale in photos so make sure to try out your SPF foundation in a quick photo shoot before your wedding day!
Guest dress codes should also be breathable! Tell your guests to dress in light cotton shirts, sundresses, and even to bring a sunhat!
Food and Drink
Keep the water flowing throughout the reception! Even after it cools off, the dancing will call for lots of water!
Include frozen treats. Think about a popsicle, Hawaiian Ice, or ice cream station!
A signature iced drink. Ask the bar if they can create your favorite adult iced beverage. Think about a twist on your favorite beverages like a spiked punch, blueberry lemonade, or something more creative like a spiked sherbert!
