Summer weather can be unpredictable. It can be extremely hot during the day and evolve into a brisk chill during the evenings. It’s wise to have the option to be inside or outside at a wedding in the summertime so guests can have the choice to relax in the shade or catch some rays outside in the sun. Accessorize the space with not only decor and flowers, but water misters and fans for your guests. It will give the environment a fun, playful ambiance and guests can take them home as a gift to use throughout the summer.
2. Have “vacation supplies” on demand

Your wedding is just like an amazing vacation, but hopefully without the mosquito bites and sunburn. Make sure to have sunscreen and repellent on hand ready for your guests to use before, after, and during the festivities. Try to merchandise the supplies to create a catered, pleasant experience.
3. Cold drinks, not cold feet
Who doesn’t like a frozen drink on a hot summer day? Make sure to include both non-alcoholic and alcoholic frozen cocktails so all guests can enjoy something sweet to beat the heat. Other beverages to have on your big day include fruit infused water and juices so your guests stay hydrated and can last through the night!
Yes, flowers grow outside however, they tend to droop when large quantities are gathered in a small space that is wet and humid. Refrigerate your flowers before the big event so they stay cool and crisp. Place empty vases with floating flowers around the venue so that bridesmaids can delicately place their blooms somewhere convenient, yet decorative.
