It is no surprise the most popular time of the year to get married is the summer. The weather is nice and you can take advantage of the sunshine and beauty of the South Shore of Massachusetts. With wedding season right around the corner, don’t sweat planning your summer bash, here are a few tips to help your summer wedding beat the heat!

Order a Backup Boutonniere: Boutonnieres are often overlooked and are very fragile, especially during the summer when they need to withstand the heat and humidity. Ask your florist to leave you some extra backup flowers or a second boutonniere for the big day, you’ll be glad you did if your groom's flowers start to droop.

Provide parasols or fans for outdoor ceremonies: During summer, outdoor ceremonies are a must, but the beating sun can often take a toll on your guests. Provide your guest with some shade by offering parasols or small hand fans to keep them cool throughout your ceremony. Your guest will appreciate the extra mile especially if your wedding day falls on a hot summer day.

Cool down with a refreshing drink: Nothing is better on a hot summer day than a nice refreshing drink. Welcome guests with a complimentary refreshing lemonade and water station!

Always have a plan B: No matter what kind of wedding you are planning it is always important to have a plan b. Mother Nature has a mind of her own, and can make you change plans no matter what season.  Make sure to have a backup plan to keep you worry free on your wedding day. Luckily, our plan B for a ceremony in doors here at the CCB is just as beautiful! 

Summer is the perfect time to plan your wedding, but make sure you keep in mind these tips so your big day goes off without a hitch.
