Summer weddings are typically ideal for couples who want to make sure they aren’t rained out and guests are able to attend. However, it is important to understand that a summer wedding can provide some particular challenges. If you are getting ready for your summer wedding, here are some tips to keep in mind to ensure everything goes smoothly.
Beat the Heat
While a sunny day can be a great time to get out and enjoy the pool during the summer, it can make your wedding guests a little uncomfortable if no shade is available. Don’t let your guests get sweaty during your nuptials and drain their energy before the anticipated reception. If you aren’t having your wedding indoors and instead opt to have it outdoors to enjoy the season, make sure you provide ample shade to your guests.
It’s easy for guests to your summer wedding to get dehydrated, especially if they are dancing the night away with alcohol. For this reason, it is important to ensure there are water stations available to keep them as hydrated as possible. Overlooking this important need during an intensely hot day can quickly ruin a wedding if people begin getting sick or passing out because they are dehydrated.
Reconsider the Time
In most cases, summer heat reaches its peak early in the day or midday. For this reason, it is important to plan the timing of your wedding around the times that the sun is less likely to be at its peak. This will not only cut down on the heat but limit the chances of too much UV exposure that can lead to sunburns for you and your guests as well.
