Make sure there are fans in the room? Air circulation will be your friend. Also ask at the venue what other brides have done.

I wouldn’t go with the icepacks.  You’ll walk like somebody broke both your kneecaps, and what happens when they start sliding?  I don’t know what you’re planning on doing with the washcloths, but if you want any makeup on by the end of the evening I would be careful.  Face it, it’s going to be hot.  You’re just going to be sweaty inside the dress.  Make sure there is some air circulating, even if it’s just fans, and especially in the dressing area.  You can run off there and pull your skirt up to your waist, kick off your shoes, and cool off a little if you need to.  I did.  And drink lots and lots of ice water.  Or maybe find a venue with air conditioning?

I’m not too worried about the heat in Seattle.  I feel like it’s the rare day where we are really sweltering and usually by evening it’s cooled off.


Good luck to you! It’ll be fine.
