How to Beat the Heat on Your Wedding Day

Are you planning a summer wedding? There are a lot of different scenarios to think about when it comes to your big day, and it’s best to be as prepared as possible. When your big day gets closer, you might notice a weather forecast with ideal temperatures, but that’s not always the case. If you’re expecting heat and humidity, we put together a few tips to help you and your guests beat the heat, so everyone can enjoy each part of the day.



Provide Extra Water for Guests

It’s important that your guests have access to water throughout the day, not just during the meal. This is a relatively simple solution, and it can make your guests feel cared for in warmer conditions.  If your ceremony is outdoors, consider having water available before and after the ceremony so that guests can stay hydrated. Talk with your venue and your vendors about your options, and see if they have a typical protocol in place for warmer days. Ask them if they can check and refill the water station more regularly, and be sure to share all of this information with your coordinator!



Touch Up Your Hair and Makeup 

No matter what the weather is on the date of your wedding, it’s sure to be a beautiful, memorable, and magical day because you are tying the knot with the love of your life. Every bride wants to look and feel her best on her big day, and it never hurts to take a little time to touch up your hair and makeup to mitigate any changes from the heat. Chat with a few of your bridesmaids and your coordinator, and plan a time (or two!) that you can cool off and reapply lipstick and hairspray.



Get Creative

Is your wedding ceremony outdoors? If your ceremony is expected to be quick, your guests might not mind sitting in the sun for fifteen minutes. Some brides like to provide paper fans for guests or provide parasols that match the theme of the day. There are a lot of ways you can make the day more comfortable for you and your guests, but it might take a little creativity and flexibility. Talk to your venue, and ask them what other brides have done in the past to beat the heat if you need more ideas!
