So it’s August and we all know that means high temps for New York and the East Coast. However, bring on the fun and fabulous outdoor weddings! I love love love the summer and I especially love when my clients choose to have tented weddings and outdoor ceremonies. But what about your wedding guests on a hot summer day? You definitely want to think about creating an experience for them that is unforgettable. And it really starts as soon as they step foot onto the grass, the cobblestone walkway, or that amazing covered pool!
Give them a cool signature cocktail or non-alcoholic summer drink. It doesn’t have to include five different types of rum but something light and fruity would be preferable.

Popsicles. You know those icicle sticks you ate as a kid that come in like 100 a pack and in different colors of the rainbow? How fun would this be to give out on a hot summer wedding day? Plus it would bring back a lot of great memories for your guests.
Umbrellas. I can sit in the sun for hours because I absolutely love the heat, but let’s face it, there are some people that are afraid of too much sun. So give them a cute umbrella with the bride and groom’s wedding date on it. This can double as a souvenir and a backup plan in case it rains on your ceremony.
Luxury hand towels. Chill them before handing them out to guests. They feel really good against your skin and are super soft if you get the right ones.
Cooling station area. Have an area where your guests can go to cool off either at an inside area where there are air-conditioners or fans. Place water or flavored water options in this area as well. Your guests will appreciate the hospitality!
Outdoor summer weddings are no doubt a fave amongst many guests, but be prepared to make sure your wedding guests are enjoying the experience rather than being drenched in it.
