Summer Weddings- How to Beat the Heat

summer weddingsSouthern California is more temperate during the summer than many other parts of the country.  Outdoor venues are especially attractive during the sunniest months.  However, those who are planning a wedding at the warmest time of the year should keep a few tips in mind.  And if you are a couple looking for the perfect Mission Viejo Florist event, you may benefit from the experience of our designers who have executed hundreds of successful summertime weddings.

  • Make sure take the time of day into account when setting up the seating arrangement for the ceremony – be aware of the sun’s position to ensure guests are not staring right into it.
  • Have a tent on hand for shade and cooling off. Although very hot days are rare, not everyone likes to be in the sun for hours.
  • Have drinks available to your guests from the time they arrive; drink stations or wandering waiters will ensure your guests are well- hydrated and comfortable.
  • Some flowers do better in hot temperatures than others- including orchids, lilies and roses. To keep bridal bouquets from wilting, have vases available to hold them when not in use.
