Are you thinking about having a summer wedding and want it outdoors? The Georgia heat can have you thinking otherwise. Here are some tips on how to have the wedding of your dreams in the heat while keeping your guests cool and happy!
Two for one
A great option to display your programs is by using fans. This is a great way to help cool your guests and giving out the information for your ceremony.This also helps cuts down on the costs for you as it serves two purposes! Your wedding planner can help you nail down the details that go on your program.

A Unique Favor
You can serve beverages in a personalized water bottle from your wedding date. This could include your monogram, wedding date, or maybe you have a favorite quote! This is cute and unique and something guests can reuse.
Avoid hot chairs by renting chairs that come with cushions! This helps keep the chairs cool and avoids having your guests legs burn when sitting down.
Using Natural Shade
Ask your wedding vendor if there is natural shade by your ceremony location near the time of your ceremony. If so use this to your advantage and arrange the chairs in the shade!
Clear tents with portable A/C units are a surprising and gorgeous way to bring the outdoor beauty in without fully going indoors.

These great ideas help bring the temp down, and the creativity behind them will stay in your guests' minds forever!
