Staying Cool – Summer Wedding Survival
Even though summer weddings look easy, they can sometimes be tricky. No bride wants to spend her wedding night smothering herself in aftersun, or trying to persuade their guests to stop hiding in the shade. So, if you want your summer wedding to be a success, follow these simple survival tips to make sure that your guests keep cool in the heat.
1). Serve Ice Lollies
Impress your wedding guests with some Instagram-worthy ice lollies! Not only will they keep everybody cool in the summer heat, but these pretty lollies will also instantly upgrade your summer wedding!
2). Programme Fans
Make sure your guests are as comfortable as possible during the ceremony by transforming your wedding programmes into pretty fans. This bright idea will keep your guests cool in the summer heat, whilst making a beautiful addition to your wedding day. If wedding DIY is your thing, why not use this as an opportunity to get creative?
Don’t leave your guests with the sun burning down on them all day long. A fab way to make sure your guests have plenty of shade is to hire a beautiful tent. Why not use this as an opportunity to get creative with your decor, and transform your tent into a colourful festival? Fairy lights are a great way to instantly add a touch of magic to your theme.
4). Refreshing drinks
No wedding is complete without plenty of drinks, but they are even more important at a summer wedding! Pimms and Gin & Tonic are classic alcoholic summer drinks, but we love pink lemonade and iced tea to keep your guests hydrated in the summer heat.
Make sure that your guests can stay in the shade with pretty, on-trend parasols. This bright idea will allow your guests to stay cool, and will also instantly add a feminine touch to your wedding theme. Why not let your flower girls walk down the aisle with an adorable pastel parasol?
6). Flip Flops
Heels mixed with hot and sweaty feet do not exactly get you in the mood for dancing! If you want a full dance floor at your summer wedding, we suggest having a box of flip flops for your guests to kick off the heels and get on the dance floor. We love personalised ones from Gandys London.
