1. Program Fans

Make your programs multi-purpose by turning them into fans. Your guests will be especially thankful if there's no natural breeze on your wedding day. 

 

2. Ice, Ice Baby

Keep beverages submerged in a chilled container so that they're extra cold when guests grab one. There's no better way to quench your thirst than with an ice-cold beer, right?

 

3. A Shady Spot

If your reception is right under the sun, consider setting up a lounge in a more shady area. That way you and your guests can cool off while still enjoying the weather. (PS—you can see more stylish reception lounges right here.) 

 

4.  Pretty Parasols

Help guests avoid a nasty sunburn and enjoy permanent shade with parasols for the ceremony and reception.

5. Dancing Shoes

Chances are with the humidity, guests are going to be dying to take their shoes off (no matter how adorable they are). Troubleshoot by providing flip-flops for guests to dance in. 

 

6. Frozen Treats

Cake is delicious, but during a heat wave there's nothing like a snow cone or ice cream to cool you off. Consider these alternatives for a sweet treat at your reception. 

 

7.  Drink Up

Set up a drink station at the reception with various options so guests can help themselves to a glass (or three) whenever they please. 

 

8. Under an Umbrella
