Tips On Planning An Outdoor Summer Wedding In Texas

Texas is a top ranked wedding destination with it's scenic landscape & rolling hills. This  all makes planning an outdoor summer wedding or special event extremely enticing. Whether it be Austin, Houston, Dallas or San Antonio it's essential to not overlook the heat during the planning process & take some key things into consideration for your guests, party band & most of all your own sanity.

 

Hydrate:

Dedicating a distinct area for guests to refuel & hydrate will do wonders in helping the party thrive until the bands last song. Unique & customized water dispensers are available for purchase or rent that are able to tie in with your event colors & party theme.

 

Giveaways

Custom printed hand held fans are not only a fantastic way to cool down under the Texas sun but their sharp colors & event specific designs make for the perfect keepsake for guests to take home. Another fun wedding favor to defeat the sun are colorized & custom sunglasses with the Bride & Grooms name & wedding date on the side. 

 

The Outdoors

Provide your party with sunscreen to protect from the suns rays.  If your reception is outdoors make sure to have Insect Repellent handy for when the sun sets as well. 

Lawn Games

Break out the lawn games & add some extra fun for all ages to your reception or special event. Bag toss, yard jenga, checkers & more. 

 

 

Alternate Option

Though it rarely happens, Texas does sometimes rain in the summer months. Make sure to have an alternative option whether it be indoors or under a tent for cover if the weather ends up not being on your side on your wedding day. 

 

Entertainment

The band needs love too! After a high energy show in the Texas Heat, a case of water & a room full of AC is almost dream worthy. Please take into consideration your entertainment, catering company & wedding vendors hustling hard to make your dream day what you always hoped for.
