Summer is hot, but that is no reason to postpone your big day.  With a little forethought and consideration you can make your August wedding just as comfortable and stunning as any June wedding.

Here are some suggestions for making your August wedding breathtaking and pleasant despite the hot weather.
  • Keep your guests cool by renting free standing misters which are said to make a surrounding area feel up to 10 degrees cooler.
  • Have your wedding program printed onto a lovely paper fan.
  • Make sure to have plenty of water available.
  • You and your bridesmaids may enjoy having your hair pulled up in a soft braid or a wispy updo.  Also, be sure to choose dresses with lightweight fabrics in soft pastels.
  • The new trend of a "naked" cake is an absolutely wonderful idea for a summer wedding.  No need to worry about it "melting"
  • Consider a late morning or early evening wedding to avoid the hottest time of day and be sure to assess your venue to determine the sunlight pattern. Set up your seating in an area that receives shade first.
  • Above all: have fun!
