Wedding Wednesday – Beat the Heat at Your Summer Wedding!

By June 14, 2017Weddings

As the super hot Southern Ontario temperatures arrive, and summer wedding season is in full swing, we thought it would be a great idea to talk about how you can help your guests, your wedding party and yourself beat the heat on your wedding day! Here are some fun ideas by Wedding Bells!

Program Fans

Why not add a practical element to your wedding programs by turning them into adorable fans!? You can really keep it simple with these and even DIY if you’re so inclined. Just grab a few packages of popsicle sticks, some ribbon in your colour of the day, and print your programs on two pieces of heavy cardstock. These easy to assemble programs can be glued together, with a ribbon tied on, and left in a trendy basket or mason jars for your guests to pick up as they arrive at your ceremony space.

Misting Zones

Create a fun space for guests to cool off from the heat under a simple tent! One of our Starshade tents offers the perfect amount of space, and a great visual for your big day! Underneath you can store coolers full of ice water, freezies in your wedding colours, and even homemade mister bottles filled with water! Having a place for guests to congregate and escape the heat is not only a thoughtful idea, it’s a really unique one too!

Mini Sunscreen Favours

Even though your guests will know your big day is being celebrated outside from your invitation, not everyone will remember to bring their SPF! Help them out by creating fun favours that they can take away and make use of on your big day! These little bottles of sunscreen will come in handy for so much more than just your wedding day, and your guests will marvel at your ingenuity and creativity!

Tent Yourself

This is definitely the most obvious recommendation from a tent company, but also incredibly practical! With so many tent options with simple installation and removal, it’s a no brainer to offer your wedding guests shade and shelter from the hot sun on your wedding day! We have unique Starshade tents as seen below, or you could consider pop up tents, or even something a little larger! With or without walls, you can add beautiful decor and truly make the space your own!

So there you have it! Our top picks for fun and thoughtful ways to help your guests beat the heat while they enjoy your nuptials, and to keep you from worrying about people not having the time of their lives on your wedding day!
