5 Must Haves at a Summer Wedding

Summer is right around the corner and it will sure bring the heat! When planning your summer wedding here are a few tips to help you keep your cool. 1. Hydration Station

With the sun high in the sky and the alcohol flowing, you will want to make sure everyone is keeping hydrated. Have cold water readily available. Consider doing some fruit infused waters to encourage guests to sample it more.

2. Shade

Protect your guests from the harsh rays of the sun. Sun glasses will help shield the eyes, plus they double as a cute a favor. Consider getting a tent if your venue doesn't have enough shade for your dinner tables. Parasols are another cute way to provide shade and they look great in photos.

3. Light Menu

Keep your menu light and fresh. No one will want to sit down to mashed potatoes and gravy in the heat. Choose fresh salads, grilled veggies and fresh fish to keep it cool and refreshing.

4. Get started a little later

Starting your ceremony later in the day is good way to keep cool as well. Late afternoon is often the hottest part of the day so its best to avoid that all together.

5 A Primping Spot

Make sure your guests have a place where they can fix make-up melt downs and tame frizz in the humidity. It is also advised that you hire a local professional to do your bridal hair and make-up who can prep your style for the humidity. You can also get a restroom trailer that is fully air conditioned.
