Summer Wedding Tips - How to Keep Guests Comfortable!

Hello Our Beautiful Readers! 

Although the first day of Summer isn't until June 20, the temperatures are already starting to rise into the 80's. Summer weddings are beautiful because everything is blooming and gorgeous and we have all been longing to be outside for months. If you are planning a summer wedding, here are a few tips to help keep you and your guests comfortable so you can all enjoy your special day! 

Keep them hydrated! Have bottles of water available at the ceremony to help keep guests cool. Personalize each bottle with a message and put them on ice to keep them cold. 

Sun Protection and Bug Spray. With hot weather comes those annoying buzzing bugs.  Be prepared by keeping a bug spray and sunscreen station for your guests to go and apply some much-needed SPF!  Opt for cream instead of spray, so guests don’t accidentally spray the food or their eyes.

 

Give them shade. Parasols are great stylish and useful accessories to keep for any outdoor wedding.  They will keep away the sun, and will look great in pictures as well!  If you want to get fancy, you can choose different colors or prints to match your decor.

Personal Fans. Keep hand-held fans on each chair.  Fans can also double up as your wedding program, which all your guests can keep as a personal memento after the wedding!

Sunglasses. You don’t want your guests squinting while you walk down the aisle in your gorgeous gown, so keep sunglasses for them to wear while outdoors.  You’ll be surprised to find how many people forget to bring shades to an outdoor wedding.  Not to mention, they’re also great photo booth props!

Have an Indoor and Outdoor Option. If you are having the ceremony outdoors, consider a pavilion or a tent to provide shade for your guests. If you choose to have a tent, make sure it is opaque. 

Hopefully these tips will help you keep your guests cool and comfortable if you are having an outdoor celebration. Having an outdoor ceremony, we would love to hear how you are going to keep your guests cool! Always remember, we are always here to help and answer questions.
