Keeping Your Summer Wedding Cool in Minneapolis, MN

A summer wedding is full of wonderful things – gorgeous blue skies, happy guests, the shining sun, light summer clothing, green plants….the list goes on! However, if you throw a summer wedding, there is one thing you should be aware of: overheating and dehydration. To help you survive that summertime heat, we have made a list of the top tips to keep your summer wedding cool!

Get an Indoor/Outdoor Venue

We get it! You want to enjoy the beautiful weather while it’s here, and outdoor weddings are so romantic, but sweating to death at your reception is definitely not ideal. Choose a wedding venue in your area that offers gorgeous spaces for both outdoor and indoor fun. When you get a dual area location for your reception, you won’t regret it! You’ll have both the whimsy of outdoors and the relief of indoor A/C. It’s a win-win.

Choose the Right Apparel

A light, airy wedding gown, a shirt and slacks instead of a tuxedo, and a relaxed dress code for guests will all help you to beat the heat. While a black tie wedding is glamorous, it is not necessarily practical for an event in the midst of summer heat waves. Keep everyone cool by choosing the right dress code, and everyone will be happier for it.

Take Indoor Photos

When the heat seems to be getting to be too much, head indoors for your wedding shoot. Green Acres is one of the best venues for weddings in Minnesota for gorgeous shots both indoor and outdoor. With a gorgeous restored barn with fantastic architectural features and an outdoor space that will take your breath away, you will regret your decision to take photos both indoors and outdoors.

Opt for a Later Ceremony Start

Since the weather can be so hot during the mid-afternoon, if your wedding is in the summer, opt for an evening ceremony. If you choose a 5 or 6 p.m. ceremony, it will allow for the heat to taper off, and will allow your guests to feel more comfortable for an outside ceremony!
