Feelin Hot

With warm weather on the horizon (thank goodness!) we're beginning to think about all of our wonderful, outdoor tented weddings.  They're gorgeous, they're one of a kind, they're well... hot.

It gets warm, muggy, humid, and hot here in Maryland in the summertime.  We have a few ways of dealing with the heat and keeping our guests as cool as little cucumbers.

Provide parasols for use during the ceremony.  They give your guests instant shade and add a splash of color to your photos.

Set up a station serving ice water, lemonade, or an alcohol free summertime drink for the guests before the ceremony begins.

Hand held fans give an instant breeze when they're isn't one to be found.  Set them on each ceremony chair.  There are tons of options in all budget levels.  And if you want a super cool idea for fans - just ask us...

Using blues, greens, and purples in your linens and floral arrangements give your guests a cool mindset.

Flip Flops:
We love setting out a basket of flip flops for guests who are dying to dance, but not in those heels.  They can keep their feet cool and save their pedicure from walking around barefoot.
