Are you tying the knot in the season of sunshine? Summer weddings are known for their vibrant color palettes, fun festivities, and, well… the heat! If you’re worried about the soaring temperatures putting a damper on your day, don’t sweat it! The wedding experts at Nanina’s In The Park are here to help you out. We’ve gathered some creative tips to keep you and your guests cool and comfortable. So, let’s dive in and learn how to beat the heat for your sizzling summer wedding!
Sun-Proof Your Ceremony
One of the most important things you can do is to think about the time of day when you’ll exchange your vows. To avoid the hottest part of the day, a late afternoon or evening ceremony is the best option. If you are going for an earlier time, you can help guests stay cool by providing sun umbrellas or parasols for some stylish shade!
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
You will also want to set up hydration stations with plenty of ice-cold water. If you want to put a fun play on that, you can serve water infused with summer flavors like cucumber, lemon, or mint. Go one step further and offer non-alcoholic mocktails or iced teas for a truly refreshing drink.
Craft A Cool-Down Kit
Another way to beat the heat at a summer wedding is to prepare a cool-down kit for your guests. You fill these with goodies like mini handheld fans, sunscreen, a refreshing face mist, mini electric fans, and even personalized sunglasses. They’ll appreciate the thoughtfulness, and it also doubles as a unique wedding favor that they can take home with them.
Ice-Cream To The Rescue
Beat the heat with a deliciously cool treat! Hire an ice cream truck or set up a DIY gelato bar with a variety of flavors. Trust us, your guests will be lining up for seconds! Another option is to work with your caterer to design a menu that features refreshing and light dishes. Consider cold soups, salads, and fresh seafood for a tasty yet refreshing meal.
Choose Summer-Appropriate Attire
Opt for lightweight fabrics like linen or cotton for your wedding dress and suits. Think breezy dresses for bridesmaids and casual attire for groomsmen. Don’t forget to remind your guests about dressing appropriately for the weather. You can do this by including a note on your wedding website or on the materials that you send with the wedding invitation.
