Host Tips for Summer Weddings and Parties

Summer is the most popular season for weddings. Clear skies and warm weather make it perfect for outdoor ceremonies. But in some places, the summer heat can be more than you bargained for!

If you're getting married under the hot summer sun, be sure to take your guests' comfort into consideration. The last thing you want is sweltering heat or mosquitoes to distract guests from your vows! Think about providing accessories like hand fans, parasols and bottled water for cooling off.

One of our most popular wedding day accessories is the hand fan. They come in many different shapes and styles. Some can be personalized, like these paper hand fans. The bride and groom's names and the wedding date or a personalized message is printed on the outer spine. These program hand fans are terrific because they serve two functions by having the program printed right on the fan. Guests won't have to fumble with program booklets and a fan and their purses or other personal items.

A parasol is another great summer wedding accessory. Not only does it offer shade from the sun, it also looks great in photos. These are paper parasols. They're simple and will go with any theme. For presentation, just set the parasols by the entrance in a decorated basket or a large pail and attach a sign that says "help yourself to a little shade". They'll definitely appreciate it.

Another thoughtful item to have for summer, outdoor events is bottled water. Staying hydrated is important, especially on hot days. Here we have personalized bottled water which is a fabulous added touch. You can create your own private label bottled water just for your event.

These are just some of the simple things you can do to help keep your guests cool during hot summer events. For more ideas and stylish wedding supplies, check out the wedding supplies section at Beau-coup.com.
