Outdoor Summer Wedding do’s and dont's
Do send out save-the-dates early: A lot of people use their vacation time during the summer so be sure to send out those save-the-dates at least 6-10 months in advance, that way your guests have the date in their calendars early on and can plan their vacations accordingly.
Do wear light, breathable attire: On your wedding day you should feel confident and comfortable, not sweaty and uncomfortable.If you’re wedding venue is outdoors during the summer, be sure to pick your dress accordingly. Consider something flowy and light instead of a heavier traditional ball gown.
Do provide heat relief: While having your outdoor wedding on a summer day can be beautiful, be sure to provide some heat relief for your guests. Make sure any outdoor venues offer some form of shade or air conditioning as well to prevent guests from overheating. Also provide plenty of cold refreshments and have them accessible to your guests during the ceremony. Be aware of extra costs that venues may instill for drinks, etc. Consider opting for other refreshments such as popsicles, or other drinks.
Don’t chance the weather: Sure, we might all think a beautiful ceremony on the beach is a great option but unfortunately nobody can control the weather so be sure to have a contingency plan in case your beautiful, sunny ceremony goes south.
Don’t leave food out: One of the best parts of any wedding is the food! Be sure all food is in the recommended temperature and kept away from any wildlife or bugs or else your beautiful wedding cake could turn to mush or worse… If you’re having the wedding at your own venue, consider hiring a caterer if your budget allows. Don’t forget the sunscreen and bug repellent: You want your guests to be comfortable and enjoy the wedding without them constantly swatting at bugs or getting sunburn, so be sure to stock up on some sprays, umbrellas, or bug repellent bracelets before the big day!
