Keep Your Guests Cool
People generally hate baking in the sun, especially when they are in heavy, fancy wedding attire. So make sure you make every effort to make them cool.

You summer wedding ideas should include the purchase of a large tent or gazebo to shield the sun from guests who want to keep cool.

Add this great item to their outdoor wedding ideas list: put a fan on the seat of each guest so that they have something to keep them cool while observing your nuptials.

Planning a Summer Wedding on a Budget
Don't be ashamed if you have to cut costs on your wedding. Many people want to be more reasonable with wedding expenses in the interest of spending more money on their future, such as a house or their kids' college funds.

If you are one of these people, you will have to do a lot of planning; maybe even more so than the big spender. This is because you will have to do more research of vendors to see who has the best price and quality combination, and also have to make tougher decisions on what to cut and what to keep.

Have a listing of outdoor wedding ideas to evaluate before deciding to spend money. If you want to keep your summer wedding ideas within a certain budget, here are a couple of tips.

Have your summer wedding in the backyard of a friend or family member with a beautiful, expansive yard. If they are close to you, you won't have to pay a dime besides getting the lawn mowed. A well maintained flower garden and water fountain is a plus and gives the same summer feel for your guests as renting out a professional outdoor venue. Good summer wedding ideas don't have to break your budget-they sometimes simply involve making some calls to the ones you love, and a creative mind.

Since you are having an outdoor wedding, most likely at a family or friend's residence, you can further cut costs with food. Instead of catering, get the best cooks in your family together and ask them to do your wedding. Most likely they will be more than happy to do the gig with the only cost to you being the price of the food.

Creative Summer Wedding Ideas
Some of your guests will hate the heat, others will jump at the chance to stand outside and possibly get a tan. So provide guests with tanning lotion, maybe in collaboration with their summer wedding favors. Some might not want to remove their makeup at the wedding, some may get right into the summer wedding theme and lather up. This is probably a better option for the men in attendance who love a good opportunity to bathe in the sun and get a great tan. Outdoor wedding ideas should always include plans to satisfy both sexes.

Maybe there are members of the bridal party who love to tan or just generally want to protect their skin from the sun. Instead of providing sun tan lotion for them at the event, buy them all an expensive, quality makeup foundation in their shade that contains sunscreen. This brand name foundation can be considered a gift from the bride. Who could ever forget their bridal party when considering summer wedding ideas-they are the people closest to you and your groom.

Planning a summer wedding can be rewarding, if you keep the people who matter to you most in mind at all times.
