Due to the warm, sunny weather, long days, and vibrant colors, summer weddings are the most popular in our country, making it the peak season. However, we have often witnessed that the heat has caused discomfort during weddings, but with a little consideration, these inconveniences can be avoided. Here are 5 tips for summer weddings that may be worth thinking about during the planning process!
Choose the wedding venue wisely for summer weddings
The venue plays a crucial role in the success of any wedding, especially in the case of summer weddings. Although it may initially seem like you can save some money by choosing a location without certain amenities, the truth is that in most cases, the final bill will be higher. For a summer wedding, it's essential to select a venue with air conditioning! After all, we don't organize a winter wedding in a room without heating, right? Memoriae restaurant's event venues are well-equipped, featuring not only air conditioning but also sound systems and projection equipment. If you opt for an outdoor venue, ensure there is plenty of shade and consider setting up refrigeration stations or misting fans for guests to stay cool.
Choose appropriate attire for summer weddings
Selecting the right attire for a summer wedding is essential, not only for the bride and groom but also for the guests. Avoid heavy materials like silk and velvet and opt for lightweight, breathable fabrics like cotton or linen. There are also more relaxed, summer wedding dresses available for brides. For grooms, light-colored linen or cotton suits are an excellent choice.
Plan the menu carefully for summer weddings
Summer weddings call for refreshing, light, and hydrating foods and drinks, not heavy, greasy dishes! Plan the menu using seasonal fruits and vegetables, such as watermelon, cucumber, and mint, which will look great on the table. Offer plenty of chilled beverages like iced tea and lemonade, and handle alcohol wisely, especially in the hot sun. Choose light and flavorful dishes like salads, grilled meats, and seafood, while avoiding heavy, oily, and spicy foods that can make guests uncomfortable in the heat.

Ensure guest comfort at summer weddings
Make sure to cater to basic needs like providing adequate shade, seating for the elderly, and water replenishment. You can distribute half-liter bottles of water at certain points during the ceremonies. Designate individuals to assist with guest comfort and help if anyone encounters problems!
Timing is crucial for summer weddings
If you're planning a summer wedding, timing is nearly as important as anything else. Consider scheduling the wedding ceremony for late in the evening when the temperature is cooler; midday hours can be the most challenging. This not only ensures guest comfort but also creates a romantic and intimate atmosphere.
