7 Ways To Stay Cool At Your Summer Wedding

Summer is a very popular time of year to get married, for obvious reasons. The endless sunshine, bright blue skies, sparkling oceans, and brilliantly green leafy foliage make it an exciting time of year for weddings. There's really only one downside to summer weddings - if you're not careful, you and your guests may find yourselves sweltering in the summer heat.

If you're getting married in South Florida, temperatures are likely to be especially toasty for your summertime wedding... but don't let the heat scare you away from all the great things about getting married in the summer! Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches has a few helpful ways you can keep yourself, your bridal party, and guests cool on the big day.

1. Keep Plenty Of Refreshing Drinks On Hand.
Champagne, wine, beer, and cocktails are often staples at wedding festivities, but alcohol can be very dehydrating. It's okay to serve adult beverages at your summer wedding, but it would be wise to offer hydrating drinks as well. Fruit-infused water and lemonade are great options. You may also want to consider placing a few iced buckets of water bottles throughout your venue.

2. Plan On An Updo.
If you have long hair, you know first-hand how warm having hair on your neck can be. Do yourself and your bridesmaids a favor - if anyone has long hair, plan on a stylish updo for the special day.

3. Consider Cushions For The Chairs.
If you're planning an outdoor wedding where guests may be sitting in the sun, you may want to consider renting cushions to place on the folding chairs so that guests don't burn their legs on the hot metal or plastic chairs.

4. Provide Summer-Friendly Favors.
Guests love wedding favors anyway, but if you make your favors something they can use to keep themselves cool during the festivities, they'll appreciate them even more. Programs that double as handheld fans, small misting fans, and customized sunglasses are just a few summer-friendly examples.

5. Incorporate Fans Into Your Decor.
The airflow fans create will likely be invaluable during your summer wedding. Place several fans throughout your venue to create a cooling breeze. If you're worried about the fans creating an eyesore, you can always spray paint the base to match your wedding colors.

6. Give Your Bridesmaids Parasols.
There's something timelessly romantic and whimsical about parasols. If you're planning a summer wedding, you may want to skip the traditional bouquets for yourself and your bridesmaids, and instead select parasols for your girls to carry with them. They'll add a sense of fun to your event - and they'll provide much-needed shade while you stand at the altar.

7. Pack Sunscreen.
Don't let your special day lead to painful sunburns! Pack small bottles of sunscreen in the wedding day survival kits you put together for yourself and your bridesmaids. You may also want to consider setting out a few bottles of community sunscreen for your guests to use (by the buckets of bottled water, for example).
