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.
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.
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.
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.
Break out the lawn games & add some extra fun for all ages to your reception or special event. Bag toss, yard jenga, checkers & more.
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.
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.
Whether you live in Houston, Austin or San Antonio planning a wedding can be a hectic time. Here are 5 key tricks in helping to make your wedding as stress free as it can be...
1. Don't handle all the dirty work
Delegate! Wedding coordinators are there to help make your planning process easier. They can confirm your vendors, make weather related decisions, assist with seating assignments, & any other last minute necessities.
2. Wedding Entertainment
It's important you love the music being played at your reception. List the songs you have to hear prior to your big day via the wedding entertainments set list. Your band will be sure to construct a playlist to please everyone in the room at some point throughout the night. They should have a detailed timeline and the ability to execute all your customizations with the perfect flow.
3. Time is valuable
Plan ahead & stretch out your wedding events to leave time to breathe prior to the big day.
4. Take care of yourself
Relieve stress and relax before walking down the aisle with an hour of early morning wedding yoga either a one on one session or you & all your bridesmaids. It's important to allow yourself a chance to step away from the hustle & bustle of prepping to go for a run, take a fitness class, read a book or meditate.
5. Love the one you're with
Don't lose sight of the reason you're planning a wedding to begin with. Make time for each other & although you may be pulled in different directions on the big day, always find your way back to one another. Love is all you need!
