It’s possible to have a beautiful wedding no matter what season you
schedule it in. With the right party supplies and these helpful tips,
your summer wedding will go off without a hitch, despite the heat.
Help Your Guests Handle the Heat
Your guests should enjoy your wedding as much as you, so there are a few
different items you’ll need to keep them comfortable in the heat.
Summer party equipment like fans, portable air conditioners, and tent
rentals will be your
best friends during a summer wedding. You should also have a lot of ice water—served with lemon or cucumber
slices, perhaps—and sunscreen available.
Keep Yourself Cool
Don’t forget to protect yourself and the bridal party in the heat.
Choose your gown, tuxedos, and bridesmaids dresses in lighter fabrics
that breathe. Keep your makeup and hairstyles light—heavy makeup
will run and look oily, and an elaborate up-do will most likely fall or
become frizzy in hot, humid weather.
Store Food Carefully
Be sure anything that needs to be kept cool or fresh—like seafood,
cheese, and salad—is constantly kept on a cooled serving dish. Try
to make your menu as light and fresh as possible; vegetables, fruits,
and light meats are perfect summer food. Make sure the food is covered
to keep flies and bugs away.
Choose Your Decorations Wisely
Ask your florist to arrange summer flowers in your bouquet; some flowers
can wilt and discolor in the summer heat. You may consider silk flowers,
paper flowers, and even broach-filled bouquets instead. Make sure your
centerpieces can withstand the heat, as well. If they use water, make
sure the water doesn’t evaporate.
