Getting Married in the Summer
Weddings are a special celebration of love, values and traditions. What better time for such a special occasion than summer – when the air is full of sunshine, warmth and promise. We’ve put together a couple of our top summer wedding tips in New Jersey to help plan your big day.
NJ summer wedding planning doesn’t have to be difficult if you follow these tips.
- Provide guests with relief from the heat - Guests are going to want to escape the heat at some point, especially if you are hosting an outdoor wedding. Your chosen venue should offer shade and air conditioning so your guests don’t have to sweat it out while you say “I do.” For particularly humid days, have ushers hand out ice-cold hand towels or chilled bottles of water.
- Serve light meals - Heavy food just doesn’t go down well in the heat. Instead, choose a menu that features fresh produce, grilled entrées and plenty of refreshing fruit options. Frozen cocktails will be appreciated, too.
- Consider the dress code - Brides will want to feel cool and comfortable on their wedding day – not hot and sticky. Choose a wedding dress with a light fabric that breathes well, such as silk. Alternatively go for an ultra-modern short skirt. Grooms can look handsome in crisp linen suites and even leather sandals, if the occasion allows.
