If you’re getting married this weekend and have been nervously stalking the weather forecast for this weekend, you’re probably aware that in most parts of the country, it’s pretty darn hot outside! In an effort to keep your guests cool and comfortable, here are a few last minute ideas:
Summer is officially here (finally!) and that means ‘tis the season for barbeques, picnics, even just enjoying a drink poolside. If you’re a fan of outdoor entertaining (and let’s be honest, who isn’t?), be sure to register for some of these items from our friends at Macy’s Wedding Registry to make your summer much more stylish.
Durable dinnerware is ideal for keeping things festive while dining al fresco. Pick super-bright colors for pure summery style.

It’s no wonder that summer is such a popular time of year for weddings – your chances of getting rained out drops considerably, vacation time is being cashed in, and you’re almost guaranteed a sunny day of joy and gaiety. The only problem is the potential for some serious heat. You don’t want your guests burnt and dehydrated during your big day, so plan ahead! Here are some tips for beating the heat during your summer wedding:
Don’t skip the tent
When you’re evaluating your budget for your outdoor event, it might be easy to check “No” when you’re asked about optional emergency tenting, but you should think twice. If the weather gets severe enough, and you haven’t provided any shade, dehydrated guests will start dropping like flies. If you can’t pull off the tent, make sure there are umbrellas or other sources of convenient ample shade for your guests. At a more formal affair (think tea in the garden), you might even consider distributing parasols to your guests. Don’t leave it until the last minute, or you might have some fainting problems!
