While spring may be the most popular time of the year for couples to tie the knot, many couples choose to get married during the summer months. Summer is great because the weather is usually more predictable and the days are longer, giving you and your family plenty of time to spend outdoors whether it’s for your ceremony, reception, or both.
However, summer’s high temperatures can also throw a hitch in your plans. To help you keep your wedding in good spirits, here are a few tips you can use to make sure everyone stays happy and healthy during your summer ceremony.
Summer is great for outdoor weddings because the weather is more predictable compared to spring or fall. However, doesn’t necessarily mean that a summer thunderstorm won’t happen as your wedding day gets closer. To make sure you have all your bases covered, consider choosing a summer wedding venue that has indoor options where you wouldn’t mind having your ceremony in case you need to move it.
Even if rain doesn’t dash your outdoor wedding plans, having an indoor option where you and your guests can get a reprieve from the summer heat is a good idea, especially for older relatives who may be more sensitive to the sun. Indoor/outdoor venues with air conditioning and places where you can keep bottled water cool can help to reduce the risk of heat exhaustion.
If you have your heart set on a darker color palette for your wedding, you may want to consider making a shift toward lighter colors. This isn’t just because of the “vibe” of the summer season. Darker colors absorb more UV rays, which can cause you and your guests to get hotter faster in the summer heat. Keep in mind that certain bright colors like red can also absorb UV rays. Breathable fabrics like cotton or linen are great for summer weather because they’re light and breathable.
Hydrating is essential during the summer months, especially if you plan to be outdoors for a long period of time. Even if you and your guests don’t feel thirsty, it’s important to make sure you’re getting in plenty of water. Keep your refreshment station stocked with water to boost your wedding party’s hydration. This is especially important if you’re also serving cocktails and other alcoholic beverages at your wedding and wedding reception because alcohol can be dehydrating.
Many flowers are in bloom during the summer months, which is another great benefit of having a summer wedding. However, not all flowers are able to take the summer heat. It’s a good idea to keep that in mind when you’re selecting the flowers for your wedding bouquet and for your reception. For instance, hydrangeas typically wither in the summer heat. However, flowers such as garden roses, sunflowers, and tropical flowers like orchids and calla lilies, often thrive in the summer weather.
