Summer is a beautiful time of the year to get married, with its warm weather and lush greenery. However, it's important to consider the comfort of your guests when planning an outdoor summer wedding. In this blog post, we'll provide tips and ideas for keeping your guests comfortable during your summer wedding, as well as share some unique and creative summer wedding favors and bug spray station ideas.

Keeping Guests Comfortable During a Summer Wedding:

  • Provide shade: One of the most important things you can do to keep your guests comfortable is to provide shade. This can be done with the help of tents, umbrellas, or even trees. If you're having a tented wedding, make sure the tent is well-ventilated to allow for air circulation.

  • Offer cold drinks: Keep your guests hydrated by offering a variety of cold drinks, such as water, lemonade, iced tea, and mocktails. You can also set up a self-serve drink station with a variety of beverages and garnishes.

  • Use fans and misters: To help keep the air cool and refreshing, consider using fans and misters. You can place fans around the ceremony and reception areas, or rent a mister to create a cooling effect.

  • Provide comfortable seating: Make sure your guests have comfortable seating options, such as cushioned chairs or benches. If you're having an outdoor ceremony, you may want to consider providing blankets or pashminas for guests to keep warm during the evening.

Unique Ideas for Summer Wedding Favors:

  • Mini fans: Mini fans are a practical and stylish favor that your guests will appreciate on a hot summer day. You can find mini fans in a variety of colors and designs to match your wedding theme.

  • Sunscreen: Sunscreen is a thoughtful and useful favor for a summer wedding. You can choose from a variety of sunscreen options, such as travel-sized bottles, spray cans, or lip balms with SPF.

  • Bug spray: Bug spray is a must-have for any outdoor summer wedding. Consider providing bug spray in individual containers or setting up a bug spray station for guests to use as needed.

  • Personalized water bottles: Personalized water bottles are a great way to keep your guests hydrated and cool. You can customize the bottles with your names, wedding date, or a special message.

Cute Bug Spray Stations for Your Outdoor Wedding:

  • Vintage suitcase: Create a charming bug spray station by using a vintage suitcase. Fill the suitcase with bug spray cans, bracelet, citronella candles, and other bug-repelling items.

  • Mason jars: Mason jars are a rustic and budget-friendly option for bug spray stations. Fill the jars with bug spray, add a few drops of essential oil, and attach a tag with instructions for use.

  • Wooden crates: Wooden crates add a touch of farmhouse charm to your bug spray station. Fill the crates with bug spray, citronella candles, and other bug-repelling items.

  • Tiered stand: Use a tiered stand to display a variety of bug spray options, such as cans, sprays, and wipes. Add some greenery and flowers to the stand for a touch of decoration.

By following these tips and ideas, you can create a comfortable and memorable summer wedding for your guests. From providing shade and cold drinks to offering unique favors and bug spray stations, there are many ways to ensure that your guests enjoy your special day.
