Stylish Summer Wedding Ideas: Part Two

Stylish Summer Wedding Ideas: Part Two

Keep cool at your summer wedding with a stunning sleeveless gown.

Will you be getting married this summer or next? If so, you may be excited about incorporating seasonal flowers and foods into your big day, to help highlight the best the season has to offer. But when planning a summer wedding it is also important to keep yourself and your guests cool, so you can dance well into the night without breaking a sweat. Fortunately, there are stylish ways to do just that!

Keep Guests and the Vibe Cool

Choosing a wedding venue with indoor spaces for the reception is a great way to keep guests cool and comfortable during a summer wedding. For the ceremony, itself, why not incorporate ways to beat the heat into the actual décor?

For instance, you can have the programs printed on paper fans.

  • A table of refreshments, such as infused waters and teas or lemonade, can also help guests cool off as they wait for the ceremony to begin.
  • Even parasols can be helpful in keeping guests cool, and add to the overall look of the wedding. Just rent ones in your wedding colors.
  • Even tubes of sunscreen and bugspray can be cutely displayed, in galvanized metal tubs for instance, or small wicker baskets near your entryway table.
  • If you’ll be marrying near sunset, you should also consider the addition of citronella candles to help keep bugs at bay.

Beat the Heat with Great Bridal Style

Another important consideration is what you and your bridal party will wear to your summer wedding. You certainly don’t want those you love most to be uncomfortable in sweltering heat!

Sleeveless or strapless gowns are just one way to keep cool. Lightweight fabrics, stylish cutouts and lace details which allow airflow can also help keep you and your bridesmaids cool.

As for the guys, consider breathable fabrics and skip the suit and tie, in favor of a more relaxed (and comfortable) look. Dark jeans and mismatched plaid button downs are fun for rustic weddings, while crisp linen shirts and khakis are perfect for seaside celebrations.
