My husband attended a wedding recently (I couldn’t) where the outdoor heat was a balmy 95 degrees, in the sun…and there was no shade. While the bride provided small white umbrellas that didn’t help much, she didn’t think to provide a water station or bottled water for her guests who sat broiling for close to an hour and his shirt was literally soaked with sweat. The outdoor (but covered) cocktail hour was more than many guests could tolerate.
Where was her coordinator? She didn’t have one. Lesson learned: In scheduling an outdoor wedding in the summer – please be considerate your guests. If it’s too hot, shift to your inclement weather plan. Yes, her guests will remember her wedding, maybe not for the right reasons.
