How to Stay Cool at Your Warm Weather Wedding

Catching a few sun rays can be really great for one’s physical and mental health – but heat is nothing to joke about. Therefore, if you want your summer wedding to be absolutely amazing (for you and for all those you have invited), it is absolutely crucial that you make sure everyone is properly cooled throughout the entire wedding day.

How to stay cool at your warm weather wedding? Here are a few ideas you should definitely consider:

  • – Hydration. Drinking plenty of fluids is essential when it comes to fighting the adverse effects of high heat – so make sure your guests are provided with water, soda, juices and other refreshments.
  • – Shade. It is highly advisable that you don’t get married at a location that is not shaded at all – and even if it is, it would be a great gesture of you to provide guests with parasols and other shading options. It is always best to be on the safer side of things!
  • – Timing. If you want to avoid the truly harmful UV rays, remember to set your wedding at an adequate time in the day. In general, getting married earlier or later in the day will mean that the temperatures will be lower and the sun will not burn as powerfully.
  • – Formality. Wearing long dresses and (!) tuxedoes on very high heat can be really uncomfortable (to read “potentially dangerous”). Therefore, making your wedding more casual and allowing people to dress in less formal attires is a great way to ensure your guests feel great at your wedding.
