Sitting out in the sun can heat up real quick. Make sure you have created layout for both your ceremony and reception that provides some shade. If you’re out of luck on shade add a tent with AC options. Parasols, fans and sunglasses are also great ways to bring down the sun and can make fun wedding favors.

Always have a beverage station ready that your guest can guzzle on! Having iced water and lemonade provided to guests prior to ceremony and throughout the evening will help keep your guests and their temps tires at bay!

Planning a wedding can be one of the most stressful situations a couple is put through. Most fiancés will say whatever she wants I am happy with, but really she wants your opinion and thoughts.  You are about to say “I Do” for the rest of your life and you will be turning to each other for years come; needing each others opinions. We have come up with a few ways to get your groom involved in the wedding planning.

First sit down and discuss what you are both wanting out of the wedding. Does he want a band that will keep the guest dancing all into the night? If so put him in charge of the entertainment. Of course you both need to make the final decision together but he will be in charge of finding the bands and picking out the best one!

The attire is very important for the bridal party, the bride is in charge of the bridesmaids so put him in charge of the groomsmen’s attire. Have him go try on styles and colors you have both picked. Then after selecting the mens attire he will have the task to get all the information to the groomsmen so they can get fitted.

One of a grooms most favorite parts of wedding planning is the food. When selecting your style of wedding discuss what kind of food you both want served. Maybe he loves hamburgers and fries and really wants to serve that at the wedding. Don’t worry you can totally do this with mini burgers served for cocktail hour or as a late night passed app. Be creative with his wishes when menu planning.

With all this planning you are both going to need a vacation. Traditionally the groom is in charge of planning the honeymoon. So tell him just a few of your destination wishes and then let him take care of the rest.

Throughout the entire planning process keep him involved by giving him updates or asking his opinion. Show him the flowers you have picked. Let him decide on his style of grooms cake. Of course you two do not need to go to every vendor meeting together but just make sure his opinion is present.

We hope these tips help you with keeping your fiancé involved in the wedding planning process. Tell us all about how you and your husband planned your wedding together follow us on Facebook @SarabethEvents or Instagram @SarabethEvents.
