Go for a tented reception.
Summers can be punishing, especially when the heat is up and when the humidity can be beyond punishing. Doing your wedding reception out in the open while you are completely under the mercy of the elements might not be a good idea and you need to make sure that as a bride, you always have the welfare of your guests at the back of your mind. A tented reception can get this taken care of. They get to enjoy the aspect of an al fresco setting without being exposed to the harsh sun. At the same time, there are a lot of decorations and details that you can include in a tented reception so talk to your wedding planner about the possibility of one. More than that, it is also important for you to more or less check out a wedding venue that has great grass along with it. If you are going to opt for an outdoor setting, you might as well make sure that you have excellent grass and scenery to boot. Go for something that tends to have a lot of shade as well. Trees and shades in general can make the overall wedding setup a little homier and a little more interesting at the end of the day so try to see if this is something that you can check out one way or the other.
Trash the dress and head out to the water.
The trash the dress trend has been around for quite some time now and to be perfectly honest, it has become somewhat a bit of a staple in summer wedding shoots. If your Isle of Skye wedding photographer tells you ahead of time that you might have something like this, make sure that you prepare a less expensive but equally beautiful dress that you will not mind trashing at all when it all comes down to it. Go for something off the rack. That is usually the cheapest option. Even if you may have that affinity for designer dress at some point or so, off the rack dresses can still be quite gorgeous if you get to choose well. More than that, a skilled Isle of Skye wedding photographer will still be able to showcase it the right way. This is perfect for when you are by the beach or in a woodsy area or something that is fairly similar to that. Be ready to put a little bit of elbow grease in it though. You might need to work for it if you want to get great shots for the wedding.
If you are multi tasking as a bride, there really is no reason why your programs shouldn’t be doing the same as well. If you have something that you would like to share with your guests program wise, you can have them printed out on themed fans and give it out to them. This way, they can use it in the event that the day gets hotter than usual. They will secretly thank you for it and they will be able to appreciate the ingenuity of the idea.
