I would get the fans.  In all honesty you may or may not use them.  In Houston it can be sweltering one day and cold the next day.  It’s crazy, there really is no prediciting the weather, however if you have to bet, then bet on HOT!

March is usually pretty pleasant, but you never know! I had fans at my late April wedding last year, and they definitely got used!

I would agree with everyone. I would have them. They are right it could be hot, cold, rainy. Who knows. But at least you will be prepared.

March can be colded so you may want to reserve both fans and heaters with a rental company.  My birthday is in early March and I remember this year we had an outdoor party for my 30th on St. Patty’s day and I had a firepit going to huddle around.

You never know, I would get them.  There are good deals on Sandlewood and Bamboo Fans that go on sale regulary, so it doesn’t have to be an expensive choice.

Get fans if you can. I’ve gotten a sunburn in February in Houston, it can get hot really early in Spring there. It does depend on how the Winter is, so maybe if you can, hold off on buying them until right before your wedding. By then you’ll know how the Winter was and what to expect by March.

houston has one of the weirdest weather EVER!  I lived there for 5 years and it was always so random.  I say, get the fans.  If you don’t use them, then sell them!

I would have fans and parasols on hand and ready… YOU know what they say about TEXAS weather.. If you don’t like it now, just wait 5 minutes


My FH and I had our hearts set on an outdoor ceremony, but Houston humidity and heat in late May.. forget it!

I would definetly have both options, being a native Houstonian but now living in Denver for the past 5 years you never know with weather!  The thing about Houston (which you already know probably) is that when it is 30-40 degrees it is bone chilling cold because it is so wet and humid.  I thought I was going to freeze when I moved to Denver but truly it can be 10 degrees and dry here and it feels warmer than Houston at 40 degrees.

After listening to my grandma who is 85 years old and a native Houstonian say “If you don’t like the weather wait a few minutes” I know what she means.

Funny thing is they say the same thing about the weather here in Colorado too!

Don’t worry everything is going to be Perfect.
