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!

One detail that can sometimes be forgotten by brides is how they will be transported to their wedding venue. The more traditional approach is renting a black limo, but nowadays, brides like to put their personal spin on their wedding day transportation. Several brides have opted to use school buses to safely shuttle their guests to and from their hotel and the wedding ceremony and reception. Other brides have used party buses for their bridal party. Some have even taken a few notes from the royal family and rent a 1950’s Bentley for their grand entrance. No matter your style or wedding theme, our 5 wedding day transportation tips will help you better understand the process you’re about to face.
1. A limo is not the only choice. It may be traditional, but if it’s not your style, you have plenty of other options! You can show up in style in a 1950’s Bentley like this one from Grace Limousines, or you could hire a sleek town car or even a party bus! If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, consider utilizing your local school bus company or the shuttle bus service from the airport. Both of these options are a great way to save your budget and leave everyone smiling.
2. Think about your guests. When booking a party bus, school bus, shuttle bus, or any large transportation, this can be an excellent opportunity to include your guests. Making sure your loved ones safely reach their hotel is everyone’s top priority and with hiring a service to transport everyone, is one of the best ways to tell your guests just how much you love them.
3. Make a playlist. Make sure you pump yourself, your bridal party, and guests up to let loose and have an amazing time at the wedding reception. Everyone will be entering your venue with a big smile and prepared to celebrate your love!
4. Leave enough time. No matter if you choose to shuttle guests to and from their hotel or you are just transporting yourself, make sure leave more than enough time to get to the venue. Traffic can be unpredictable, and you don’t want to be late!
5. Be specific. When booking your transportation, make sure that your vendor is fully aware of the type of vehicle you need, how many you’ll need, and the entire schedule with the included buffer time, just in case.
