Although we love a “blushing bride,” we don’t mean sunburn! Make sure to apply sunscreen or moisturizer, foundation, or powder that contains SPF before getting dressed. You could also include a basket of essentials at your ceremony site in case guests forget sunscreen. If you’re having an outdoor summer wedding, sunglasses are a handy final detail to include for you and your guests. It’s a great way to show your appreciation for your loved ones, and makes for entertaining photos!

Relief from the summer heat is a critical final detail to address before the wedding day! Provide themed fans or pretty parasols to keep you and your guests comfortable while outside. There are so many fun styles to choose from, and they make wonderful wedding favors!

If your wedding venue offers shade from trees or large umbrellas, make sure these are easily accessible for your guests to escape the heat. A tent for dinner or umbrella-covered seating will also provide shade from the scorching sun.

Nobody likes a wedding crasher! Prevent mosquitoes and other bugs from ruining your day. Keep bug repellent or citronella candles nearby for guests to utilize, and keep a communal basket of repellent at the ready to deter bugs from bothering your guests.


Among the top of your final details list should be fun activities for your guests to enjoy while you’re taking your photos or when they need a break from dancing. Your guests will appreciate the alternative summer fun activities that will keep them entertained and cool! Providing fun games such as croquet and a giant Jenga will definitely be remembered. These summer activities aren’t just for the kids!

With all the wedding festivities going on, don’t forget to take time and hydrate! Providing ice-filled buckets of water bottles will keep you and your guests hydrated during those summer wedding days. Another fun way to stay hydrated and incorporate your wedding colors is to provide fruit-infused water! Add slices of lemon, lime, strawberries, or oranges to add some style to your refreshments.

Wow your guests with deliciously refreshing summer treats! When handling the final details for your wedding menu, ask your caterer for summer-friendly options to serve during cocktail hour. Chilly treats such as popsicles, gelato, or fresh fruit will help cool everyone down. Include his-or-her cocktails and add a selection of fresh fruit to garnish or edible flower petal ice cubes to turn these drinks into a refreshing show-stopper!
