Here are our Tips for Summer Weddings
Hydrating is important for so many reasons!
When it comes to you, drink lots of water before you head down the aisle. You don’t want to get to the ceremony and be dying from thirst or feeling woozy from being dehydrated1
For your guests…hydrate them too. Provide your guests with cooling beverages BEFORE and AFTER the ceremony. If you are planning on having an outdoor ceremony, think about providing a beverage station with at least water to your guests so they can grab a sip ahead of sitting in the sun waiting for the ceremony to begin. Trust us when we say your guests are going to be SO happy they had something to quench their thirst.
Summer weddings mean summer treats!
If it is going to be especially warm during your wedding, think about treating your guests to some popsicles or ice cream! You can even get creative and get boozy pops made or incorporate ice cream into your signature cocktail. Plus, this will make for such great photos! Talk about a win-win for you and your guests!
Love the sun, but hate to squint? Us too! Sunglasses are summer’s best friend!
How about some sunglasses to help guests get a better view during a sunny ceremony? Sunglasses are a great thing because, 1. They provide shade and sun relief to guests 2. They are a great prop for photo booths or reception fun 3. They can be your guest favors! Plus, you can get creative and customize them with your names or wedding date! These items are not only fun but oh so useful!
Whether we are talking electric or hand held, this is a great idea!
Fans can be an absolute lifesaver when it comes to a warmer event. Whether you make the fan out of our ceremony card or have hand held options available, these will make any guest feel cooler and breezier while outside. This is another great way to personalize a detail for your wedding day!
Calm, Cool and Delicious
Who doesn’t love yummy eats come summer time?
Summer food is delicious food. One way to keep guests cool and not bogged down during the party is offering some cooler options to eat. Think salads, fruits, cold soups, etc. Cooler food can be just as delicious, we promise!
