How to beat the Texas heat when planning an outdoor wedding

Celebrating your wedding in the hot months of summer can be a scorcher. Temperatures easily soaring up to one hundred degrees make an outdoor wedding in the state of Texas a force to be reckoned with. As your top Austin wedding band & variety band we have a few summer wedding tips to help beat the heat in order to pull off the perfect outdoor wedding of your dreams. 

As your wedding band we can not stress the importance of H20 on your wedding day enough. We highly recommend a designated water station for all wedding guests to use at their leisure. It's important not to forget about your beloved wedding vendors, who are working hard to pull off a perfect day for you. Be sure to not overlook your wedding coordinators, wedding caterers, wedding entertainment & hired help.


When scoping out wedding venues, our Texas wedding band suggests keeping an eye out for a venue with tall trees creating lots of wanted shade. Most Texas wedding venues have beautiful outdoor areas with shade that are ideal for hosting you & your guests.


There are multiple ways to make your wedding programs unique & memorable. Your program printed on the back of a paper fan is one of them! These wedding program fans are perfect to handout during the ceremony to provide the wedding timeline & to cool off.

• ALSO high powered electrical fans around the venue, will make YOU everyones best friend! 


Being a Texas Wedding Band we’ve seen everything there is to see when it comes to the dessert table. An outdoor summer wedding means the dessert table should consist of something cold & REFRESHING! Think outside the box, by having an ice cream or popsicle station or something extra spunky & memorable like a snow cone station.  


Make it FUN! An outdoor wedding is all about enjoying the scenery & the sunlight. Wedding yard games create a relaxed atmosphere for all guests to enjoy. Not to mention it being a fun past time for your wedding band while we wait to entertain, just saying ;) Yard games like giant Janga, Connect 4, Corn Hole & Ladder Ball are some of our favorites! 


As your Texas Wedding Band we hope some of our suggestions on how to compete with the heat for your summer wedding help you in the planning process. Enjoy every second & we look forward to bringing you all your dance favorites of Top 40, Motown, RnB, Rock & more to your outdoor wedding!
