Surviving a Wedding in the Summer Heatwave

Whilst summer weddings are the preferred choice for many engaged couples, the seemingly never-ending summer heatwave can quickly make you anxious! Whether you’re a bride-to-be or attending as a guest, we’ve put together our top tips on how to survive a wedding in the summer heatwave.

Staying Hydrated is Key!

Whilst the champagne may be flowing, it’s hugely important to stay hydrated in the heat. If your wedding day is forecast to be a scorcher, remember to supply bottled water to your guests. A top tip is to drink water in the day and swap for alcoholic beverages in the evening, when the temperature begins to cool down.

What will you wear?

Even if you already have your outfit sorted, there are things you can do to help you cool down on the big day. Guests should opt for light and flowing fabrics to help keep them cool; think thin dresses or smart-casual suits. Whilst brides have less options, you could incorporate a stunning parasol into your outfit to help shade you from the baking sun.

Stay Indoors

An outdoor wedding may be a rustic, stunning affair, but having the option of an indoor area for guests, and potentially the ceremony, is a great way to ensure no one overheats. Hot weather can be exhausting, so ensuring there is a shaded area, whether it be indoors or under a gazebo, will be highly appreciated by everyone.

Keep Things Cool!

If you have time, try to book an ice-cream or ice-cold drinks station for your wedding reception. Checking the weather forecast in the weeks before your wedding to see what temperatures you can expect will ensure you’re able to book the station just in time. Your guests will be thrilled there are cool treats available, as will the new couple!

Keep Hair Up

Whilst brides, bridesmaids and female wedding guests may be hoping to have their locks flowing, it’s a good idea to opt for a gorgeous up-do instead if the weather looks to be in the high 20’s or low 30’s. An up-do is the perfect alternative to help keep you cool and adding some accessories can keep it looking classic.
