We will have water available before, during and after the ceremony.  We will have more than enough shade available for everyone (I’m renting a TON of umbrellas).  We will also have the bar mixing blended cocktails (daquiris, pina coladas, etc) and mocktails.  We decided to not request fancy attire, so that none of the men feel compelled to wear suits.

We made sure there was shaded areas, tents or umbrellas.  We had a beach destination wedding. I always heard that fans actually don’t work…fans people hold that is.  They make you expel more energy.  Also cold towels are a good idea too.

That’s crazy, I’m getting married the day before you in Corpus Christi! We’re also doing an outdoors wedding…it is going to be SO hot! We’re getting programs (did you get yours yet? have you checked out program fans?)–always good for fanning yourself, and buying lots of bottled water to keep in coolers for the wedding. We’re planning on keeping it short and sweet, and heading inside ASAP for the reception! Our ceremony starts at 5:30 pm and reception at 6 pm, but I’m hoping the ceremony will be 15 minutes or less..

Is the whole thing outside?

i’ve never been to Texas in July, but I’ve been to New Mexico for an outdoor wedding in late June.  I loved the dry heat, but the other east coasters weren’t as thrilled.  I’d suggest a tent for shade, not just parasols.
