Low 70s. We rented heat lamps for our wedding in a week. It will probably be in the high 60s

70s woule be ideal, but I honestly wouldn’t be upset about any temp, as long as the ceremony didn’t last more than 20-30 minutes.

Hmmm… 22-27 degrees Celsius (sorry, I’m terrible with Fahrenheit – I think it’s in the 70ies somewhere?)

@housebee:  Me too! 70-75 would be perfect, although upper 60s would also be lovely.

60-70. Higher than that and I’m getting uncomfortable, I really don’t like heat/sun. Humidity is also the devil.

Well today I’m going to an outdoor wedding at the top of a moutain and it is forecasted to SNOW! (which actually probably has been happening for about the last two weeks up there) The bride posted on FB to “bring your jacket” so I’m guessing plans haven’t changed so I will not be a very happy guest I’m thinking.

Last year I was also at an entirely outdoor wedding (in a tent but the ceremony and cocktail hour were outside) and it was about 15 degrees C… (which is actually quite high for that time of year) by the time the reception started there were little huddles of girls surrounding every propane heater and the plates for dinner were literally ice cold.

I just say please please please brides, if you’re planning an outdoor anything, please choose a month where the averages are well within a tolerable range

in the 60s with low humidity, and there absolultey has to be shade. once we get into low 70s, i will probably be unable to go because of health issues. if there is no shade, or shady place for me to sit, i would not be able to go, and have declined wedding invites because of this.
