Staying Cool at a Summer Wedding

With temperatures reaching near 100 in New York City it had me thinking about how I would keep my guests cool if I were to have an outdoor wedding! I didn’t even want to walk outside to get lunch today let alone would I want to sit outside for a wedding!

Here are some tips to keep your guests cool at your wedding!

Beverages – make sure that your guests are staying hydrated! Nothings worse than someone fainting on your wedding day! Prepare to have cold water, ice-tea and lemonade on hand during your ceremony.

Towelette – nothing puts me in a worse mood than when I feel sticky after being in the heat! Have cold towels waiting for your guests after the ceremony! You can also get scented ones – no one wants to smell!

Canopy’s – if you have elderly people at your wedding as well as babies you want to make sure you have a reserved covered area for them!
