Day 1841 – Nine Ways To Survive Your Wedding In The Heat Of The Summer

How do you survive a summer wedding? It’s hot, your guests are hot, what do you do?

1. Rent an ice cream truck for the cocktail hour.
2. Have your programs printed on a fan.
3. Know where the sun will be at key points during your day. If you’re having an outdoor ceremony, make sure you AND your guests will be in the shade. We did NOT do this! I still look at the pictures and think, doh, sorry guys!
4. Have some water bottle fans for the kids…and wedding party.
5. Anywhere your guests will be outdoors, have ice water available.
6. Make sure the invitation is clear if guests will be outdoors.
7. Make sure you take your formals in a cool/shaded area (or even before the ceremony!)
8. Remember to have fun.
9. Don’t have your wedding in the summer. 😉

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
