Beating the Heat: ideas for keeping cool at an outdoor summer wedding

With outside weddings, brides can get so concerned with warding off rain that they may forget about the other weather culprit -- the heat.  Here are a few ideas that you can use to make your guests more comfortable at a hot summer wedding.
  • Print your programs on paper fans.
  • Provide an outside table or bar with lemonade, ice tea, water, or even fun daiquiris or pina coladas prior to the ceremony start.
  • Have a few baskets stationed around the ceremony area with sunscreen, bugspray, and sunglasses for guests to use.
  • Have ushers escort people to their seats using parasols to block the sun.  Ushers can then even give the parasols to the guests to use while they wait for the ceremony start. (Just be sure they direct guests to close the parasols once the ceremony begins so everyone can see.)
Outdoor weddings can be beautiful and memorable.  Taking just a few steps to keep you guests cool will ensure they enjoy the scenery and remember your wedding for the right reasons.
