4. Floral Decor
Floral decor is a good option as they keep the environment refreshing and positive as well. But, there are many flowers that wilts in minutes and that will be spoiling your entire decor which you will definitely not like. So, make sure you opt for flowers that don’t wilt easily. Or rather you can go for foliage decor and more plants which will keep the environment naturally cool. Some umbrellas for the ceiling decor would look super cool.

You need to have a large variety of cool drinks or a drinks station at your wedding. Keep some frozen drinks in mason jars at the bar in this heat. This will keep your wedding guests hydrated and cool in the hot weather. You can keep some handy ice buckets for the guests. The drinks menu can also have some fresh coconut water and lemon water to save your guests from dehydration.

12. Protect Your Skin
For the brides and all the ladies out there, the only thing we would recommend you is keep yourself indoors before attending a wedding. Or if you have to go out use a good sunscreen and protect your skin from any kind of tanning. We all have gone through that time when we have tan on our arms which makes it miserable for us to wear sleeveless outfits. So, hope you don’t regret.

We know how important your hairstyle is, but a bun or braids never hurts or you can keep the hair at bay. Add a floral wreath to make it more fun. It can be sweaty, but it is better than keeping your hair open. Try to keep your hair away from your face, fringes or flicks is a big no, no for summer wedding look. Discuss your hairstyle with your hairstylist before you leave.
