How To Keep Your Summer Wedding Guests Comfortable
When planning your summer wedding, one of the most important things to consider is keeping your guests comfortable. With temperatures rising and humidity levels increasing, ensuring everyone stays cool and relaxed during the event can be difficult.
Fortunately, there are several ways you can make sure your summer wedding guests stay comfortable throughout the day or night. From choosing a venue with adequate air conditioning to providing cold drinks and snacks at regular intervals, these tips will help keep your guests happy as they celebrate with you on this special day.
Fans and Misters Are a Must
Providing fans or misters to help keep your summer wedding guests cool is an easy and effective way to ensure comfort. Fans offer a simple solution because they can provide a refreshing breeze to those sitting in direct sunlight or in areas prone to overheating. Additionally, the movement created by the fan will help circulate air and draw out warm air, allowing cooler air to enter the space.
Misters are another great way to keep your guests cool because they use a fine mist of water to reduce body temperature and create an overall cooling effect. They can be used both indoors and outdoors and are especially useful in areas where there is not enough wind or fan power to provide relief from the heat.
Provide Guests With Refreshing Snacks and Drinks
Adding refreshments to your summer wedding is essential for keeping your guests comfortable. Cold drinks and snacks throughout the day will help keep everyone cool and energized and add a fun and festive touch to the event.
To ensure that everyone stays hydrated, offer a variety of chilled beverages, such as water, lemonade, and snow cones. Choose refreshing and light items, like fresh fruits and vegetables or pre-packaged ice popsicles for snacks.
Finally, consider creating a designated ‘hydration station’ where guests can easily access cool drinks throughout the day. Designate someone to regularly check and refill the station to ensure everyone can access cool beverages.
Set Up Shaded Areas
Shaded areas are a must-have for any summer wedding because they provide guests with much-needed relief from the hot sun. Setting up designated shade areas will allow guests to take breaks throughout the day and relax in a cooler environment.
When setting up these areas, pick shady spots close enough to the reception area for guests to access easily. If possible, choose a spot with natural shade from trees or provide umbrellas and canopies to create an artificial shaded area.
Use Breathable Fabrics To Decorate
Natural fabrics like cotton, linen, and bamboo are perfect for adding a breathable and comfortable touch to any summer wedding decorations or tablecloths. Cotton is especially effective at keeping guests cool due to the fabric’s natural airy, and lightweight properties. Linen is another great option as it is moisture-wicking, which makes it great for hot and humid climates.
