I dunno if it will fit the theme of your wedding but I’ve seen a lot of the pictures where there is a basket of sunglasses where guests check in for them to wear for the ceremony…

Also, people would be super excited if you provided cold drinks, either before or after the ceremony – you could provide bottles of water or, even better, bottled lemonade. If you wanted to serve it after the ceremony, you could do something like this:

Escort Card libations

Or of course you could have bottled drinks (like Izze) chilling in a galvanized tub near where guests check in, so they can grab a drink before they sit down. 

I’m getting married in Texas in November, so it won’t be THAT hot but I am still putting sunscreen and bugspray in my out-of-town bags – you may want to think about that! Also, my Fiance and our groomsmen are going to be wearing three-piece suits, so they can take off their jackets and wear the vest underneath with the shirt sleeves rolled up.

You may want to tell the groomsmen to order extra shirts too if they aren’t too expensive!

Will there be shade under which guests may sit?

I definitely suggest having coolers with ice and bottled water, and maybe your programs can be fan shaped so guests can fan themselves.

Friends of ours were married on a rather warm day last July.  I think the groom also had an extra shirt.  The bride’s dress was strapless, although it was also satin.  She had her hair in an up-do, which might be a good idea for you as well.  The bridesmaid dreses were long, which seemed a less-than-optimal choice for a hot day and an aisle that was basically dirt and grass.
