@peachacid:  Hey, we’re date twins! I have the same type of wedding but in Sturbridge, Ma. Outdoor ceremony and reception under a tent. I’m watching the weather, and if it’s going to be super hot we’re going to rent air conditioners for the tent. We can include them as part of our package with the venue.

I’m glad you’re thinking about the back-up plan for super hot weather. I went to a wedding a few summers ago where it must have been at least 90 degrees when all the guests had to stand outside during 45-minute room turnover and I wanted to just die.

If possible, here are some of the things that would have made it better that you might be able to use: a table with iced tea/lemonade with tons of ice (there was just wine). Fans to fan ourselves. And now that I think about it, I was a smelly, drippy beast by the time I got inside, so it might be helpful to make some bathroom baskets with deoderant spray and blotting tissues.

@peachacid:  What time of day is your wedding? If it’s later in the afternoon/evening I think you should be okay. Things will cool down and the breeze from the ocean should be perfect! I think little fans and/or water or lemonade or something should be a good enough accomodation. Maybe pass around the info through family members not to wear their wool underpants that day or something.

My dress is in yeah, but I ordered it in June. it took about three months and came in around August. When did you order it?

@SweetDeeReynolds:  great ideas!! 

 

On my wedding date it will probably be 100 out and it’s outdoors but there will be misters and fans. Im also having a brunch wedding to TRY to beat the heat a bit.

It was like 85 at 4pm when we had our outdoor ceremony and it was hot! We had water and lemonade at the guestbook table and I bought a bunch of paper fans and put those out there too. People loved the fans, and I’m sure the refreshments went a long way. He ceremony was about 15-20mins so nothing unbearable.

Water bottles are a great idea. I think individual fans might be good, too!

@peachacid:  My sister recently got married under a blazing hot sun… NO tent.  While it was still hot, she had sunglasses as guest card holders, programs in the form of fans and cups of ice-cold lemonade.  I thought all these ideas made it definitely bearable!
