Nothing’s worse than an uncomfortable wedding ceremony when guests are sweltering in the sunshine! You want your guests to be able to focus on the vows – and not just wait for them to be over – so it’s important to try and keep them cool in the summer heat. Here are some ideas that they will definitely thank you for!
Give them Shelter
Whether in the form of parasouls or overhead umbrellas, save your guests the sweat by sheltering them from the sun! These are great items to have at the entrance to your wedding ceremony in addition to fans and shades they can utilize while you wed.

Serve up cold appetizers and treats
