The Ultimate Guide to Throwing a Summer Wedding Without Breaking a Sweat

‘Tying the knot’ during summer months can be an extra challenging task – from the scorching heat to managing the sweat, organizing a picture-perfect summer wedding is tough. But don’t worry; this blog will help you throw one of the most memorable weddings without breaking a sweat. We will walk you through some simple yet effective tips and tricks to help you beat the heat and have fun on your special day!

Choose the Right Location

First things first, make sure you choose the right location. A venue with indoor and outdoor space will be perfect. Indoor areas should be air-conditioned or have powerful fans to keep guests comfortable. And when it comes to outdoor spaces such as a garden or patio, ensure to provide parasols/umbrellas in case of rain or strong sun.

Plan the Right Time of Day

You’ll also want to pay close attention to the time of day when you plan your ceremony and reception. For the ceremony, opt for an earlier time in the morning (around 8 or 9am) or late afternoon (4-7pm). This will ensure that guests won’t be exposed to direct sunlight during the long hours of your ceremony. For the reception, evening time is best – make sure to start no later than 8pm and serve light refreshments such as cold salads or fruit platters so guests won’t be too hot and sweaty after a long day.

Dress for Warm Weather

Finally, when it comes to choosing attire for yourself and your bridal party, make sure to select light fabrics like cotton and linen. Opt for a dress with thin straps or a loose-fitted suit jacket for the groom, which will not trap heat. And, of course, don’t forget to accessorize with stylish sun hats or sunglasses!

By following these few tips, you can have the summer wedding of your dreams without breaking a sweat. With some creative planning and careful consideration, you can be sure to make the most of this special day – even in the hot summer months.
