Summer is on its way! It’s time to break out the bucket hats and sunscreen in anticipation for the warm days ahead. The summer brings out a lot of fun things: beach days, snow cones, and of course, weddings. It can be hard to deal with the hot climates while trying to celebrate your big day, but we put together some tips to make it just a little bit easier for you.
First and foremost, think of your bridal party! Choose lighter fabrics that are more breathable for your bridesmaids and groomsmen. Make sure you remind them of two favorite products for the summertime: sunscreen and deodorant. This can help you prevent photo mishaps like a sunburned face when it’s time to do pictures. Get a good setting spray for anyone wearing makeup so it stays on throughout the day’s activities. Make sure you keep these things in mind for you as well!
Guests are up next! Our personalized fans are a great way to keep guests a little cool during the ceremony. They’re also so beautiful! Another favor that may do well to beat the heat are sunglasses especially if your celebration takes place outside. For those outdoor summer weddings, especially here in Texas, make sure there are shaded areas available to prevent anyone from being overheated. It is also smart to try and keep the ceremony within a reasonable time. No need to rush, but perhaps plan for an indoor ceremony if you want a two-hour vow exchange.
One of the best ways to beat the heat throughout the day is through food and beverages! Make sure you have plenty of water on hand to pass out to guests, especially during cocktail hours so everyone stays hydrated. Offering fruit and other hydrating food is helpful as well. Consider a fun addition to your celebration like a popsicle or snow cone stand. Nothing says summer like a frozen treat!
Don’t let the hot weather scare you away from enjoying a summer wedding! Just be mindful when planning your wedding, especially if it is outdoors. When you’re out celebrating your day, make sure you’re drinking plenty of water! Popsicle, anyone?
