3 Tips for Summer Weddings

From sunny days on sandy shores to panoramic vistas of vineyard vines, the Central Coast is the perfect destination for any style of wedding. While we’re lucky enough to have beautiful weather all year round, the summer season is one of the most popular times of year for weddings on the Central Coast and it’s no secret why—long days, warm nights, and clear skies are what every girl dreams of on her special day. While many brides & grooms flock to the Central Coast for these very reasons, locals know that there’s one thing about a summer wedding in San Luis Obispo County that is important to prepare for—the heat. Read on for a few tips on how to beat the heat during your summer wedding.

1. Refresh the Refreshments

While your guests wait in happy anticipation before the big “I Do” it’s important to make them cool and comfortable by offering light refreshments near the ceremony site. These refreshments can be as simple as ice water and lemonade presented in a Pinterest-inspired beverage dispenser or chilled mini water bottles on each chair. Ask your catering servers or coordinator to ensure that these beverages are refreshed often enough to keep your guests happy and hydrated before the ceremony begins.

2. Bring Your Own Shade

If you’ve chosen to exchange vows with a beautiful beachfront wedding in Avila Beach or Pismo Beach, you want all the attention to be on the ceremony. If your guests are hot and uncomfortable with the sun beating down on them, they’ll be too distracted to focus on what’s really important—the bride and groom! Keep all eyes on you by providing your guests with parasols or renting a covering to avoid sweat and sunburns!
