Consider Comfort – Make sure all guests have proper shade and seating options so they can enjoy your big day without feeling overheated!

As the summer months approach, outdoor venues become more and more popular for weddings. However, with the sun shining down on your guests, it’s important to consider their comfort. Make sure to provide plenty of shade options, such as umbrellas or tents, so they can cool off during the ceremony or reception. When it comes to seating, opt for materials that won’t cause anyone to sweat or stick to their clothes. And don’t forget about keeping your guests hydrated – offer refreshing drinks like your signature cocktail or infused water stations around the venue. By considering these summer wedding ideas, you can ensure that all your guests will enjoy your big day without feeling overheated.

In conclusion, summer weddings provide a truly unique atmosphere that allows you to take bigger risks showcasing bold and bright colors to truly reflect the joyous warm weather! When planning your perfect summer wedding, be sure to select a venue with an amazing view, pick out eye-catching shades of yellow, pink and orange for your color scheme and include seasonal fruits and vegetables in your meal. For an extra touch of fun, consider setting up activities like beach volleyball or create an outdoor photobooth area for entertainment. Finally, offer refreshing drinks to ensure everyone stays hydrated in the summer sun and make sure there are comfortable seating options so no one feels overwhelmed by the heat. With some dedicated wedding planning you can craft a spectacular day that will leave both you and your guests with memories of a truly incredible experience!
