Summer can seem like the ideal time to get hitched with so many people on vacation and the weather being pretty reliable, but there are a few things to keep in mind. Obviously we all know that there are summer days that can be miserably hot.  Just in case your wedding happens to fall on one of those days, there are some tips to make it bearable.

 

1. Consider renting fans or misters for the outdoors to keep everyone cool.
