Beat the Heat During Summer Events

With the weather hitting almost 90 degrees, it could make for a very uncomfortable outdoor event experience, but why should you let a little rise in temperature ruin your day?  There are plenty of ways you can ensure that you and your guests will stay cool and comfortable during your blistering summer event.

Fans are a great way to keep your guests cool while also adding a little flare to your décor.  Hang hand held fans from the chairs for the ceremony or place them in a basket for people to take on their way in.  Fans can take on the look and theme of your wedding, just add the wedding program or monogram tags of your newly adopted last name to make the fans as much a part of your wedding decor as they are a cooling tool.


Tents provide the perfect amount of shade for guests.  When temperatures are hot, no one wants to be sitting out in the direct sunlight.  Tents create a cooler space where seating and mingling can take place without the feeling of melting from the summer heat. Tents come in all different shapes and sizes and can be decorated depending on the vision of your event.  Line the tent with up lighting, hang a chandelier from the center, or drape fabric for an elegant vintage feel.  The options are endless and the benefits are great.

s have long been the perfect way to hide from the sun.  With their dainty doily look, parasols add the most feminine of touches to any summer event.  Provide them for guests to use during the event and then invite guests to take one home with them once the sun is set and gone.  With several different looks like a curvy Pagoda parasol or a ruffled cream parasol, there is always a way to make them suit your wedding perfectly. Not to mention, they make for a fun prop during your outdoor photo sessions
