4 Tips for Planning a Summer Wedding, Hebron, Kentucky

A summer wedding, whether it's in a tropical climate or your hometown, comes with its share of complications. The sun, insects, and the stress of planning can start to add up, but it’s still sure to be one of the most memorable days of your life. To make planning easier, follow these tips, such as hiring a wedding caterer to feed guests.

Summer Wedding Advice

1. Sun Protection

You and your guests will likely spend a lot of time outdoors. Protect yourself from the harsh sun by applying sunscreen every 30 minutes, and spray a light bug repellant on exposed skin. For the bride-to-be, try out both products beforehand to ensure they don't interfere with your makeup.

2. Lighter Food

Tell your wedding caterer to serve light food; dense food filled with dairy products doesn't mix well with hot weather. Wedding caterers offer seasonal menus that are suited for the summer, including frozen cocktails, fruit skewers, and lean meats like chicken or fish.

3. Time of Day

Start the ceremony in the late afternoon—around 4 p.m. or 5 p.m.—so there's enough light, but it isn’t blistering. Then, the after-party can happen after the sun goes down, so your guests will feel cool throughout the evening.

4. Breathable Attire

Traditional wedding attire is a white dress and a black suit, but heavy layers may be too warm during the summer. The bride should opt for light fabric, like silk, and avoid a thick gown that could insulate heat. The groom should wear a light-colored suit of blue or gray. For dancing, both of you can change into different clothing so you don’t overheat during the festivities.
