I will be having an outdoor standing ceremony of about 10 to 15 minutes.
The location we have chosen is pretty shaded so there won’t but much sun.
I was wondering if you bees could give me an idea of what you would rather recieve at the ceremony.
Also any other suggestions would be appreciated.

I think I’d rather have a fan with bubbles being second. If it’s in the shade, I wouldn’t need a parasol plus I’d be worried about not being able to see around them. I also wouldn’t necessarily want water for only 10 minutes. The fan would be great for that amount of time while also being something I could keep pretty easily. Bubbles also usually look really pretty in pictures which is why I listed them as my second choice.

Water – easy and not distracting.

@mandb122: Very true about the parasol blocking people’s view.
Thanks to both of your for your input.
I’d love to hear more opinions!

Parasols are tricky because they can very easily block the view of the person sitting behind you. I think definitely bottled water, and fans would be nice too. Even though the ceremony is short, most people will get there early, so having water when you’re outside for 30-45 minutes would be really nice.

It’s going to be extremely hot here this Saturday (probably still close to 100 at ceremony time, 7pm), so I’m going to have fans AND bottled water. Bubbles too, but that was just an impulse buy when I saw them cheap at Oriental Trading Company. And then a quick dash inside for the reception!

@dmcanespy: I am not exactly sure how hot it will be but August is usually hot so I think I will get the fan/water.
I’m a sucker for bubbles so I think I’ll get those too!
Thanks again bees!
