Hello beautiful bees!
I have 17 days until The Big Day! Eek! While I’m incredibly excited, I’m also pretty darn worried about SO many things.
The biggest concern right now is temperature. It’s an outdoor ceremony (with rain backup location) on Oct 12 in Massachusetts. Back when we thought of having an outdoor ceremony in mid October, we thought it would be fine — I personally love brisk weather, and I’ve always heard of brides wanting AC with that furnace of a dress on. But a few guests are coming in from California, and even I have started to wear light jackets on 60 degree days. Have we just not had enough time to get used to that weather? Will we be more used to the 60s in less than 3 weeks? Surely guests will look at the weather and bring sweaters?
Average for that day in that location: high of 63, low of 41 (yikes! don’t worry, the outdoor part is before sundown, at 5:30)
I’m considering HEAT LAMPS. Has anyone done this before? Is it really expensive? What’s the radius of warmth for that sort of thing?
Also, do the bridesmaids need shawls/boleros? I’ll be fine, but I’m much more hearty than some of my waifish bridesmaids.
I don’t know what to do!! Ultimately, it’s really a matter of chance, and we’ll deal with whatever temperature the weather throws at us. I’d still love advice, especially from mid October brides from the Northeast.
