Choose the Perfect Time and Place
Arizona can be a warm state, let’s be honest, it gets HOT. If you are considering a late Spring or Summer wedding, heat is something to consider as you prepare for your wedding day, so that you and your guests, are all as comfortable as possible.
To prepare for what could be a warm day, and to keep your guests cool and comfortable, there are a few things you can do. For instance:
• Plan your wedding for morning or evening to avoid the hottest part of the day
• Create a lounge area, utilize umbrellas or tents (Especially if you are hosting a wedding outdoors)
• Have an open bar and setup water stations
• Welcome your guests with gift bags that include personal fans
• Encourage guests to dress for coolness
There are many things you can do to help ensure you and your guests are comfortable, even with a bit of heat. You can even choose to beat the heat by searching for a wedding venue that offers plenty of shade for your outdoor wedding!. Our easy-to-use venue finder can make your venue search fun.
