Summer is here, and there is no better time to get outside! This goes for everything from backyard BBQs with friends to summer weddings with hundreds of guests. Many brides and grooms shy away from having their wedding in the summer because of the suffocating heat, but with these summer wedding hacks in mind, your wedding will go off without a hitch.
Our Top 5 Summer Wedding Hacks:
Invest in baby powder
Not just for babies, this miracle powder keeps the sweat at bay! A little coating will prevent sweating and chafing so you can dance all night long. Plus if you apply the powder with a big fluffy brush all over your arms and decolletage right before your photos, your skin will appear flawless on film. This goes for the groom and groomsmen as well!
Designate one bridesmaid and one groomsman to carry the ice
Put one person from each side of the bridal party on ice and cold water duty. This way you won’t get thirsty or too hot and will have someone specifically designated to the job. This way no one forgets!
Go easy on the shoes
While we know it can be exciting to pick out the perfect pair of heels to match your dress, they just aren’t practical with the hot weather. Pick a nice breathable flat or even some sandals that will make it easy for you to get around both inside and out. Don’t forget to tell your guests exactly what shoes they should bring as well.
Invest in wedding party rentals
While you might not have a physical wedding party tent at the end of the day, renting a tent for your wedding is one of the best investments you can make. Wedding rentals are invaluable for couples who choose to have backyard weddings — you will have all the benefits of great wedding decor without having to deal out a big chunk of change.
Repurpose the programs
Make your programs into a fan! Print out everything on one page, glue it to a stick, then pass out so your guests can cool themselves during the ceremony. The same also works well if you’d like to incorporate menus or drink lists during the reception.
