    I have been to several summer weddings and they have all been ridiculously, painfully hot.  It definitely made the situation less enjoyable.


    May I ask why you’re already telling your guests what to wear when you are still 2ish years away?  Or did you mean that you WILL tell your guests.

    Oh goodness I hope not…because my wedding is 8/17 with what is looking to be an outside ceremony and the average temp is 90 degrees here. Haha.

    I think your guests will be fine. Especially with how y’all are trying to accomodate them :).

    In southern California we live for days like that hahs!  With that said though, most of our summer months consist of 90s-100s & it doesn’t sound like something you or your guests are familiar with.  If you were a guest to someone else’s wecding with the same conditions as yours, would you be dismayed with that kind of weather?

    I would rathre be hot than freezing in the winter… So I would go and posssibley bring one of those battery operated fan thingys (for after the vow ceremony of course!) I would use the quiet paper fans for the ceremony.

    82 is perfect!!! I guess I do live in AZ so our average summer temps are about 30 degrees over that, but even so I think 82 is quite comfortable! I assume your wedding won’t be at high noon, so by like 6pm it will probably be 75. Don’t tell them to wear light colors, it will be fine.

    The last wedding I went to was outdoors and insanely hot.

    It was horrible.  We left early.

    82 isn’t a big deal. I grew up in TX and then lived in New England for 7 years. New England summers don’t have ANYTHING on TX, so i’d be totally fine if I were your guest!

    82 is a nice summer day in New Hampshire for the most part … humidity rarely being a factor in that state (so a lot will depend ON WHERE…. White Mountains, Lake District, Ocean Side, in one of the Cities ?).  Maybe you could provide more info… especially for those of us familiar with the various regions.

    I just don’t enjoy outside weddings as much in general. The heat. The sun glaring in either your eyes, or your guests’ eyes. If it’s cold or wet… then you’ve got to deal with it being cold and wet. Even if it’s good weather on the day of, if it rained recently the women will have their heels sinking in the mud. I have also been to weddings (and outdoor receptions) where I got eaten by mosquitos and other bugs!

    Whatever you do, don’t waste any money on those paper fans!! For some people they actually make it hotter (because they fan themselves too vigorously). Think about it, when’s the last time you were effectively cooled by a paper fan. And do you really want to look out on your wedding day and see everyone in the crowd standing up in their seats and trying to peer around all the arms and elbows that are flapping around.

    Both the ceremony and reception are outside?

    It looks like a lovely venue! However, you should keep in mind that if it is super hot and if there is nowhere air-conditioned for people to go get cooled down, they may leave early. But if you have the ceremony later, like at 5 or 6 PM, then at least it wouldn’t be in the hottest hours of the day.
