How to Keep Things Cool at a Summer Wedding!

How to Keep Things Cool at a Summer Wedding!No matter where you live, a summer wedding has the potential to come with intense weather. Are you prepared for it? Summer weddings are a magical time to encounter and plan. But it can't be forgotten that many climates are humid and simply very hot and keeping everyone cool needs to be a top priority! We all love to plan for the dress, the colors and the cake, but this is an often forgotten detail that must be remembered! It will save you so much stress, frustration and regret by planning ahead. At Ontario Bakery, we know hot weather and weddings, and are happy to share these helpful tips with you!

Here are 3 easy tips to keep things cool at any summer wedding! 
Weather Coverings: Be sure to have a back up plan for strong sun and possible rain. No one wants to feel stuck in the sun, sweating away their elegance or caught in the rain, watching all the hard work be washed away in a tropical storm! Make sure you have tents and fabric overhangs that will provide both sun and water and heavy wind protection. Your guests will be so thankful and you'll be very glad you did!
Handheld Fans: Personalized fans are one of the best little gifts you can provide your 
guests. They serve a much needed purpose and can even be an added piece of decor. They provide a nice breeze for those ceremonies outdoors or dinners under the elements. One of the nice aspects to a personalized fan is that you can customize it for your wedding day. You can print your names and wedding date on the fan. It can then serve as a good memento for guests to take home and remember your wedding. You can hand out personalized fans as guests arrive or have them at their place settings and chairs depending on where you think your guests will need them.

Refreshing Snacks: Alcohol tends to be a beverage of choice at most weddings, but for the summer wedding, we hope you will reconsider. You want to make sure that your guests stay hydrated. Alcohol is very dehydrating, so the effect is even greater than normal. You definitely don't want a guest needing medical attention after just trying to have a good time! An easy way to keep things cool is to have refreshments on hand like water, tea and lemonade. You can get creative with refreshment displays by assembling specialty jars and jugs in a set space. For ceremonies out in the sun, your guests need to have water readily available.  You can even customize your drink station further, by creating personalized labels on water bottles. In the intense heat, refreshments will keep you and your guest cool until the sun goes down.

Keeping cool during your summer wedding isn't as hard as you may think. We are a custom bakery based in Ontario California, so we know heat, and have also learned the best ways to survive it. We hope you've enjoyed these tips and will contact us for any wedding cake or other custom baked needs!
