Riverside, CA (PRWEB) June 11, 2013
June is the most popular month for weddings with its warm temperatures and fresh blooms. Some weddings, however, become uncomfortable due to the hot summer sun. On May 31st, 2013, CBSNews.com released tips for keeping a bride comfortable on her wedding day, and Do the Bride a Favor is announcing tips on how to make everyone comfortable during a summer wedding, including the bride and groom.
1. Think of the Wedding Couple First
Whether the wedding takes place indoors or out, keeping the wedding couple comfortable should be a priority and preparations should begin weeks before the wedding. Brides should wear their wedding shoes for at least a few hours before the big day to ensure a good fit. Brides should also have hair and make-up trial runs to ensure that the look can stand up to the rigors of a wedding and the heat. A bridal party member should be enlisted to create a special ‘help pack’ for the bride that includes blister bandages, make-up essentials, pain relief, eye drops, double stick garment tape, a small sewing kit, and any other items that may be needed. The groom should also have a help pack including items such as band aids and pain relief. Make sure that the bride and groom have water at hand throughout the event.
2. Provide Relief for Guests and Vendors
Nobody can predict heat exhaustion and a medical emergency can ruin a wedding. If the venue is outdoors, make sure to have plenty of water available and ample shaded areas for both the guests and the vendors. Providing fans, cooling towelettes, and bug repellant will ensure the comfort of every guest. If the venue has indoor facilities available, set-up a “cooling-off” area for guests and vendors to use during the wedding and reception.
3. Consider the Food
Even the most expensive wedding cake can succumb to heat. When choosing a wedding cake to serve, take the average temperature into consideration. Work with the bakery to ensure that the cake is exposed to the heat for the shortest time possible. This tip should also extend to the caterer as food may spoil if left out in the sun for too long. When planning the reception, think of favors that can stand up to the summer heat, for example, hard candies in a candy buffet rather than chocolates.
Do the Bride a Favor gives tips for summer weddings, including emergency kits for the bridal couple, providing guests with ways to avoid heat exhaustion, and choosing favors that won’t melt in the sun.
