With the summer heat beating down at over 90 degrees even at 5:30 in the evening, it may be hard to imagine planning a wedding during the summer months. There are certainly many things to consider, such as cost, and vendor availability, as the summer is the most popular time to get married. If you do decide to plan your wedding day for a summer month, here are some tips to beat the heat:
1. Wear light fabrics and make sure you have your wedding party do the same. The only thing worse than picking an uncomfortably dress for your summer wedding day is picking out bridesmaid dresses that are not season appropriate. You do not want 4 heat-frustrated ex-friends on your hands! Try Liz Fields bridesmaid dress style #430 for a light feminine style.
2. Consider an evening wedding when things will have cooled off considerably. With some good timing and luck, you might even get a beautiful sunset as the backdrop for your vows!
3. If you are planning to have your wedding outside, plan for a location where there is breeze, like the ocean. Most guests will not mind the hot weather if they have an ocean breeze on their faces and a beautiful view.
4. Embrace the summer as part of your wedding theme by handing out fans as favors for your guests as the walk in. This is a wedding favor they will use over and over and remember your special day.
