Pick a location that is convenient for all your guests. You can research and ask who has recently gotten married for their recommendations.

Wedding Attire

For brides, consider a lightweight dress made from a natural fiber like cotton or linen. Avoid strapless or sleeveless styles, as you don’t want to be exposing too much skin to the sun. A pretty sunhat or veil is a must to protect your face, and don’t forget to apply sunscreen.

Grooms can stay cool by opting for a linen suit or even a linen shirt and pants. Avoid dark colors, which will absorb more heat, and go for light, breathable fabrics. If you’re worried about sweating, consider purchasing an undershirt to help wick away moisture.

Flowers and Decorations

Talk to your florist about the best blooms for your location and season. Check to have enough for bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and other decorations.

Plan for weather conditions, and choose appropriate decorations. Consider items like wedding tents, canopies, string lights, and citronella candles. If it’s going to be hot, make sure there’s a shade for guests, if it might rain, have a wedding plan B and C in place.

For tabletop, rent or buy enough tables, chairs, linens, china, and glassware for your guests. Don’t forget items like garbage cans, extension cords, and tape.

Food and Drinks

A variety of food and drink options should be available to accommodate all guests. A buffet with a variety of hot and cold dishes, a variety of drinks such as water, wine, and beer, and a variety of fruits, cookies, and cakes should be available. It is also important to consider any special dietary needs of guests when planning the menu.
