Every Way Under the Sun to Cool Off Your Wedding Guests

Jul 23 2014 - 9:30am

Summer is a popular season for weddings thanks to its sunny days and warm evenings. But while you may be happy to pick a hot wedding [1] day for pretty photo ops — not to mention less chance of rain — there's nothing worse than melting your guests by being unprepared for the high temps of the season. You'll have a grumpy bunch of family and friends on your big day if you don't keep in mind ways to keep them cooled off. In addition to scheduling your day smart (like not having long periods of time when they are stuck outside in the direct sun), here are some fun and creative ways to cool off your wedding [2] guests this Summer!
