I know, it was over 100 every day for an entire MONTH before the wedding. Then the week before it rained. The drama! It wound up being perfect. Hooray for mother nature and gambles that pay off!

I got married this past June in Colorado and the weather was perfect!  I think that June is a great time since it is before it gets too hot and hopefully the snow is gone, though in Colorado that isn’t always certain!  It was looking like we were going to have rain on the wedding since it rained two weeks beforehand, but that didn’t happen!

Yep, we’re braving the outdoors for the whole wedding…out in SoCal (Disneyland Hotel), so heat will definitely be a concern.  But we’re battling it by having an morning ceremony & cutting the reception short (no dancing, no cutting cake, no tosses) by taking our guests into Disneyland – park tix are our favors.

@daniellemybelle: thanks for the tips on how you’re keeping it cool!  didn’t think of most of these things. LOVE the fans & cold beverages ideas!

Yes! We are having our wedding completely outdoors in our backyard with no tent. We are planning on starting just before dusk so that it will be cooler for the guests. Our backup plan is to move everyone inside because the guest list is only 40 people. Good luck!

Noooo. Just the ceremony. The reception will be indoors.

I know this is *months* too late but had to reply! 

I’m having my ceremony and reception outdoors in the mountains of Kentucky.  We have a tent on hold – we can call it in the day of the wedding if it looks like it will rain.  Ours is in the afternoon, too – 4:30 ceremony, 5:00 cocktails, 6:15 dinner and then dancing under the stars afterward.  I really wanted to have an outdoor wedding and since it’s so beautiful that part of the country, I thought why not?

The one thing my mother and her sister have said over and over is that I need to get a natural fabric for my wedding dress so that I don’t sweat like a hog.  I’m concerned though about the bugs.  I think we will have some torches with citronella in them.

Our ceremony is indoors (in a church) and our reception will be outside under tents. *Crossing fingers for good weather!*

We are having ours at a vineyard in central NY.  The wedding is outdoors (with the vineyard Barrel room as the backup) and the reception is indoor/outdoor with a tent.  The food will be set up in the resturant that opens up to a beautiful vine covered patio and our tent.  Central NY can be beautiful or awful that time of year so we aren’t taking any chances.  If all else fails, we will have some fun mud puddle shots.  🙂

We could have gotten married out doors, but we wanted a more traditional feel to our wedding so we are getting married inside of the church. We are also having our reception in a hall. I think that outside weddings are beautiful in the summer months. Congrats!

Well, perhaps it will be unseasonably warm. And even  if it’s cold, your guests will cope. I went to a wedding in Chicago on the last weekend of August–when it’s ALWAYS hot. And it was really cold! (Okay, it was the mid-60s, but it’s usually in the 80s-90s and in the height of summer, 60 degree weather feels freezing!) So, most people brought wraps or wore warmed clothes. I was cold, but it didn’t get in the way.

So don’t stress about it too much–it’ll be fabulous!

We thought about a summer outdoor wedding, but in Texas, people would be passing out! LOL!
