Warm weather is here, and with it comes the season of outdoor weddings. Everyone wants to take advantage of the nice weather and soak up the sun at their wedding ceremony this spring and summer. But, while outdoor weddings come with a host of benefits like more space, scenic views, and natural lighting, too much sun and heat could be a source of discomfort on your special day.
As you plan your outdoor ceremony, you should consider ways to keep you and your guests cool in case high temperatures occur. Here are some tips to beat the heat at your outdoor wedding venues in Omaha.
The last thing anyone wants is to be sweaty in wedding photos. If you’re hosting an outdoor wedding, dress yourself and your wedding party for the hot weather. Think: Light and loose. You can opt for short dresses and updos to really help bear the heat. Do not forget to wear SPF to prevent sunburn and waterproof makeup in case you sweat - and encourage that your guests do the same.
Cocktail hour is traditionally not held until after the ceremony, but it’s so important to offer refreshments during your ceremony if it is being held outside in the heat. It doesn’t have to be anything too fancy - a water bottle will do the trick. The goal is to keep you and your guests hydrated and energized so you can dance all night long!
Give wedding favors
Greet your guests with wedding favors that they can put to use at your outdoor wedding ceremony. For instance, an easy-to-make paddle fan, sunglasses, water misters and hair ties are all great, affordable ideas to help your guests beat the heat on your special day.
If the sun is particularly insufferable, you may want to invest in shading. A tent that covers your seating area will keep your guests warm and prevent the sun from disrupting their view of the vow exchange. Your guests will appreciate your efforts to create a comfortable experience for them! Consult your outdoor wedding venues in Omaha, as they may offer tents in your package.
Plan the menu accordingly
As you choose food and drink for your reception, remember that your guests are coming in hot from your ceremony. Offer cold treats like popsicles, snow cones or ice cream to help them cool off upon entering. And of course, lots of ice cold beverages to rehydrate and replenish!
