    Too hot. I was MOH in my BFF’s wedding in July of 2010. It was 109 on her wedding day. everything was outside, no a/c. The heat is the ONLY thing anyone remembers about that day.

    My wedding on May 19,2012 was too hot in my opinion and my entire wedding was inside. The entire wedding party got hot and sweaty during our pictures before the ceremony. I had to have my makeup and har touched up after the pics. My wedding in Pensacola, FL.

    I voted too hot, but what’s the average high where you’re at?

    We attended a wedding last year in the beginning of August; I’m pretty sure it was the hottest I have ever been. It was miserable. It’s about the only thing I remember about that wedding.

    @DGB38:  Your guests would absolutely melt!  Think about their comfort vs. their desire to BOLT from your wedding as soon as physically possible due to heat stroke!

    During the day, yes will be hot but I bet it willl be beautiful when sun goes down, cooler in the evening.

    @DGB38:  Granted, I’m in Texas where over 100 is normal, but that seems very doable actually. Tent, paper fans, plenty of cold beverages, sounds nice to me.

    Our wedding was 99 in July. Again, that’s all that anyone remembers. I suggest finding somewhere with AC

    Too hot… Last year it was scorching on my wedding day. Our reception hall had both indoor & outdoor access for our guests, and not one soul could stand to be outdoors.

    My cousin just had her desert June wedding all outdoors… even with shade and big coolers, it was HOT. Way too uncomfortable. I don’t know what the temp is like where you are, but if you’re questioning the heat, err on the cautious side and stay indoors.

    It depends.

    My reception is outdoors in August, in PA, but it’s on a boat on a river, and it’s later at night – no sun and lots of breezes. (And I mean no sun – the ceremony starts at about sunset) I’m hoping that’ll be sufficient.

    So if it’s at night, where there’s a nice breeze, I see no issue.

    @HappyBride827:  +1. I would look at sunrisesunset.com or check weatherchannel.com for their average temps and when the sun goes down. I did this for my outdoor wedding in TX but I chose to have it in April because it’s not too hot or too cold in TX around this time. Unfortunately, this happens to be a weird year for weather for us. We had a cold front 2 DAYS before our wedding!!! So when the sun went down it was in the low 60s for our reception 🙁
