Stay cool!

With temperatures in Virginia Beach topping 100 sizzling degrees, it is getting more difficult to stay cool.

I wondered if brides had "weather plans" for this heat wave. I contacted the wedding office at Norfolk Botanical Garden and was surprised to find that outdoor ceremonies took place as planned this past weekend! It was a scorcher!

Now brides, I understand that you have a vision for your day. I would not dream of trying to deter you. I do have some suggestions for helping guests to 'beat the heat'.

  • Bottled water - personalized labels and a drink tub make it special and prevents dehydration. Love these from My Wedding Labels

The clear polycarbonate drink tub is from Target!
  • Shade - a tent, an arbor, some bamboo poles with fabric draped awning style, or umbrellas/parasols. My favorites are these from Luna Bazaar


  • Fans - like those shown in the last post or this cute battery operated variety! I found these at personalfans.com
These little touches are sure to make guests feel appreciated and comfortable!
