Summer is the most popular time of year to get married. Many couples enjoy the warm weather during an outdoor ceremony. But, if you are planning a summer wedding, don’t let yourself be limited by these 4 common summer wedding myths:
4 Summer Wedding Myths You Shouldn’t Believe
Your Wedding Must Be Outdoors
Outdoor weddings are beautiful, but they aren’t for everyone. The hardest part of planning an outdoor wedding is the one thing you can’t control – the weather. A summer heat wave or thunderstorm can be problematic on your big day. If you’re planning on an outdoor wedding, you should always have an indoor backup plan. But there’s no reason you can’t skip the outdoors altogether and have your summer wedding indoors if you prefer.
The Heat Will Make Your Guests Uncomfortable
Summer weddings do have to account for high temperatures, but the heat can be managed with a bit of planning. Choose flowers for your bouquet and floral arrangements that won’t wilt as easily (like orchids and lilies). When it comes to the cake, buttercream icing melts very easily, so you could opt for a fondant-covered cake instead. For makeup and hair, ask your makeup artist and hair stylist to use waterproof or long-lasting products that will endure the heat.
You Can’t Have a Formal Wedding
Formal clothing tends to be hot. But having your wedding during the summer does not mean you have to choose knee-length dresses and khakis if that’s not your style. If your wedding is going to be indoors, the air conditioning will help keep the wedding party cool, even in formal attire. You can also stay comfortable outdoors by opting for cooler fabric choices, like silk and chiffon.
People Are Too Busy in the Summer to Attend a Wedding
Summer is a busy time of year for lot of people. Many families choose to travel during while their kids are out of school. And with the popularity of summer weddings, venues and vendors get booked quickly.
