Weddings / How To's

With the weather heating up and the days growing longer, wedding season arrives. Whether you’re a guest or hosting the big day, here are a few survival tips to keep in mind for the long months ahead.


The weather can be fickle, so be prepared for anything. With outdoor venues in high demand in the summer months, couples should consider finding a location with rain insurance. Some venues offer tents or indoor spaces for last-minute weather changes.


Guests should be mindful of what they wear even more in the summer, as most days will be scorching heat followed by the chilly night. Layers and shawls work well for women while men can get away with a light suit for any summer weather.


Packing a spare pair of shoes helps on the dance floor, as well as a weather precaution. Whether they are flats, sandals or just something comfortable, have something handy for wet ground as to not ruin the formal footwear you will need for photos and the ceremony.


Bug spray and outdoor repellent are a must for any summer wedding venue. A beautiful summer night can be ruined quickly with swarms of bugs biting.


The summer tends to be filled with wedding weekends, so be prepared for everything with a bag of essentials in the car or stowed away in a nearby hotel room.
