Are you planning on having a summer wedding? Then make sure you read this blog post! In this article, we are going to discuss what you should consider implementing to ensure your summer wedding encounters no problems and your guests are comfortable.
Send out your wedding invitations well in advance – Summer is a prime time for people to go away on holiday. Especially those with young families, who are on their summer holidays. Delivering your wedding invitations in good time will allow people to mark your event on their calendars so they don’t plan anything that clashes.
Provide sun cream for your guests – If part of your wedding day is outdoors it is a good idea to provide or ask your guests to remember sun cream. Especially if the weather forecast is looking promising.
Shaded seating – Ask your venue dresser or venue manager if they can provide seats and tables, in a shaded area, where guests can take a break from the sun. Bonus points for parasols!
Have cold water available – If you are having an outdoor summer wedding you should consider having water easily accessible for guests. Especially on a really hot day. Why not put slices of fruit in the water and serve in stylish glassware!
Choose a venue that has both an indoor & outdoor area – With the British summer being highly unpredictable, you can never 100% know if the weather is going to be baking hot or a wash out. That is why it is important to take this into consideration, as you don’t want to be stuck inside on a hot day and likewise you don’t want to be stuck outside in the cold! A golf course is an example of a venue that would be able to cater for both.
Serve cold foods – Snacks such as fruit and ice cream are a great way to keep your guests cool & full! Two birds, one stone.
Bug repellent – If your summer wedding is outdoors it may be worth having some bug repellent at hand. Especially if you are near water.
Air conditioning – If your summer wedding is indoors it may be worth asking the venue to turn the air conditioning on during your event, to keep guests cool.
