Dallas Wedding Venue
There comes a moment in every summer wedding planning that everyone realizes just how hot the big day will be. We all know how hot Texas summers can be, so be prepared at your Dallas wedding venue to help yourself and your guests keep cool in the heat. There are so many options to help everyone cool down during your outdoor ceremony and reception. We have a few favorite options, ourselves and wanted to share a few with you!
- Look into getting fans for your guests! If your ceremony is outdoors, have the fans on each seat as guests come to sit down. If the reception is outdoors, add them to the place settings, or have a basket filled with them for guests to grab. There are so many choices for fans, too! You can get fold out wooden ones if you are going for the wood theme throughout your wedding. You could also have paper fans with the wedding program printed onto them. This option gets two birds with one stone.
- Rather than having heavy treats for your guests, consider having sweet treats that will cool you and your guests down. You could rent a soft served ice cream machine. If you prefer to avoid dairy, go for popsicles or a snow-cone station stocked full of flavors! Nothing is better than cold sweets on a hot day.
- Lastly, have your reception once it is dark. It cools down significantly once the sun isn’t shining down anymore. Maybe have a cocktail hour and dinner in the time between your ceremony and reception that the sun is still out and shining down. Wait to start the dancing and partying until the sun has set; your guests (and yourself) will be grateful for this decision once the dancing has begun.
