Oh lord yes! We had over 100 days in a row of 100+ degree weather this summer, and something like 45 days of 105+ weather and we’re 3 hours north of Austin.

Is it possible to have the ceremony indoors? Anything after 8AM has the potential to be brutally hot.

Sorry, I was trying to send from my phone at work, and it didn’t let me.  What  I was trying to say was that it looks like you’ve done your homework and covered all your bases, but I admit my first reaction when I saw the title was “ohmygoodness don’t do it!!”  I live in Houston which is about 2 hours from Austin.  Summer in Texas is unbelievably hot.   I would really try to do the ceremony in the afternoon/early evening though, and be sure you get a light dress!!

Ummm…don’t be shocked if people leave early regardless.  I got horribly ill at DH’s cousin’s wedding from the heat, even in shade and in the morning.  We left after about 2-3 hours.

Even if the ceremony is short, people are still going to be sitting there longer waiting for it to start. It seems like it could be too hot. I know for me, if I’m dressed up and looking nice, I don’t want to be all sweaty that early into the evening.

@Mrs.Lonestar:  Okay, the pre-ceremony cocktail hour makes it sound more tolerable…

It isn’t “just” a 15-20 min ceremony, though. People will be there early milling about, will have to get up out of seats/make their way to the reception. It could end up being an hour+ that they are there. If it were me (and I grew up in DFW and went to Texas A&M for college), i’d have my wedding at a time of day other than late aftenoon. It may be 85 if you’re lucky….or it could be 105! You don’t have any control over that, but you do have control over the time.
