How To Prepare For A Boiling Hot Wedding Day

Hot Summer Wedding Day Tips

Sure, your wedding’s going to be cool af because you’re cool, but is the weather going to be cool as well? Most people dream of a scorching hot day for their Summer wedding, with visions of idyllic outdoor ceremonies under a bright blue sky and light summer nights boozing and schmoozing. However – with the British weather as it all too often is – very few people actually prepare for extreme heat, which can make your wedding day super uncomfortable both for you, and your guests! If your day is set to be an absolute scorcher, here’s our tips for a boiling hot wedding day:

Have your wedding ceremony under shade

It’s super important to be shady at your Summer wedding. The sun feels lovely on your skin for a bit, but after half an hour sitting/standing and sweating in it it’s less than ideal. This is especially true for young children, those with sensitive skin and the elderly. Consider having your ceremony underneath in some woodland, or under a canopy.

Jules Champion our florist made some fab headwear. We wanted to show a different take on the flower crown, which a lot of woodland brides wear and create something unique using natural items that you would find in the woods.

Going back to basics enjoying the simple things in life, love and nature.
