Beach Weddings: Ideas for Helping Guests Beat the Heat
When your wedding guests RSVPed to your beach wedding, they were probably thinking about enjoying a shore getaway. They may come dressed in strappy sundresses or a breezy linen suit, but are they prepared to beat the heat? Help keep your guests comfortable so they can enjoy your celebration. Here are some ideas for having happy guests.
Water – Warm salt water breezes can be surprisingly dehydrating. Add in heat, and you have an environment ripe for health problems. Provide guests with fresh, cold water to sip on to stay hydrated. Buy inexpensive water bottles in bulk at the grocery or big box store and then personalize them with these fun labels from Inspire the Bride.
Program Fans – Keep important ceremony information at your guests’ fingertips while these practical DIY program fans. In addition to the important details, attendees can create some moving air to help relieve the heat. Intimate Weddings takes the program fans a step further by providing guests with a fun activity on the back.
Flip Flop Favors – For guests that arrive in dress shoes, why not offer a complimentary pair of flip flops for them to wear on the beach, and later on the dance floor? Let the ladies get out of their heat trapping pantyhose and men out of their insulating socks to let their toes breathe. Jubilee Events shows some presentation ideas for the flip flops.
Carry the flip flop theme throughout the wedding with personalized sandals for the bride and bridal party, available here: Wedding Flip Flops.
Your guests will appreciate your thoughtfulness in keeping them cool during your beach wedding.
