With Summer Weather comes Heat Waves...which can spell problems for Outdoor Tented Wedding Receptions.
While the concept of an outdoor Reception sounds beautiful, summer weather can often mean Sweltering Temperatures & "Steam Baths" in the Summer. This can feel even worse in a packed Tent with little or no circulation or a weak summer breeze. Obviously, Dancing is already going to make everyone sweat.
Don’t get us wrong. We are not saying that you should never have a Tent Wedding in the Summer, but you Either Need to Prevent these problems or Plan for Them.
SOLUTION: If you’re thinking of having an Outdoor Tented Reception, consider the Time of Year (July & August are the Hottest Months) and possibility of extremely High Temperatures & High Humidity in a tent. One Obvious Solution is to have your Wedding inside in Air Conditioning!
INSIDER TIP #1: Tent or not, One Great Wedding Planning Idea is to have Iced Drinks Ready to Go on a Table Near Your Ceremony. Guests Really Appreciate having Iced Water, Iced Tea, or Cold Lemonade Before having to sit thru an Outdoor Ceremony in a Heat Wave!
INSIDER TIP #2: You can Plan to Start your Wedding Later & have the Dancing during 9pm-11pm or 10pm-Midnight when the Temperatures have Cooled Down. This Wedding Planning Tip can Make ALL the Difference, yet Very Few Couples Actually Plan Weddings this way!
