Keeping cool for your summer outdoor wedding

Summer is the most popular time of year for people to have weddings.  It’s easier for loved ones that need to travel to attend.  It’s when schools are out so you don’t have to worry about the kids missing classes.  It’s typically the best weather for weddings, particularly if you want to do something outdoors.

However, this is the south, and it gets a little hot and humid this time of year and while we true southerners proclaim to love the heat (and usually we do love it), sometimes it gets to be a bit much.

Now the big question is how to get the best of both worlds without requesting that your guests melt during your vow exchange.

Outdoor weddings are beautiful and it’s a great feeling to have the beauty of nature provided as your photographic backdrop.  But having an indoor option available for your guests to cool down might also be necessary when thinking of your venue.

Numerous venues have both indoor and outdoor options in one location, even here in Savannah, Georgia.  Various local gardens, museums, hotels, B&Bs,
all offer outdoor locations for the wedding and portions of the venue that come with the convenience of central air conditioning.

The Mackey House offers the outdoor pavilion or gardens for your ceremony and the entirety of the house for food and cake.  We are able to customize
locations, space, wedding particulars, to any design you’d prefer and our unique venue gives us plenty options for each of the event traditions – cutting
the cake, tossing the bouquet, the first dance, etc.

Not just for weddings, The Mackey House can create the perfect combination of indoor and outdoor activities for any summer event – anniversaries, birthdays, class reunions, corporate retreats – whatever you need to kick off your summer season right, our event specialists will work with you to ensure the best of the best for your event.
