What to Keep in Mind When Preparing for a Summer Wedding
By: The Nixplay Team
Summer may be the most popular time for weddings, but that doesn’t guarantee a hitch-free ceremony! If you’re tying the knot at the height of the season, make sure to cover all bases by following these tips.
Dress for summer.
While spiffy suits and heavy beaded gowns register beautifully in photos, it can be a bit uncomfortable for summer, especially if you’re holding an outdoor event. To keep everyone smiling throughout the day, make sure you and your guests are clad in light, chic outfits in cool fabrics. Try linen suits for guys, and draped jersey dresses for the ladies.
Be mindful of the drinks you’ll serve.
Stick to light, refreshing beverages early in the ceremony and reception, as alcohol and frozen concoctions might make your guests more parched. Opt for light, refreshing juices or iced teas, and invite your guests to help themselves to bottles of water.
Consider practical wedding giveaways.
Summer weddings inspire a range of creative keepsakes your guests will use long after your big day. If you’re having an outdoor ceremony, Panama hats, fans, and sunglasses will make for great souvenirs. Luggage tags will complement their summer vacation plans, while chic utensil sets will help them make more eco-friendly decisions.
For your entourage, a more personal memento that celebrates your relationships will be a suitable gift. A Nixplay Smart Frame pre-loaded with all your favorite photos and videos would be appreciated not just in summer, but throughout the rest of the year as well.
Keep your guests cool.
An outdoor ceremony at the height of summer can be absolutely gorgeous–and absolutely sweltering. Help your guests keep their cool by setting up tents and air coolers, and distribute water misters to help them stay cool.
Have a Plan B venue for outdoor weddings.
We’re sure you’ve checked the weather forecast several times ahead of your big day, but still, you never know when it might rain! Tents can provide refuge in case of a sudden drizzle, and they will also come in handy if the sun shines a bit too brightly.
