While Cancun is a beautiful place to be married, one can’t deny how hot it is.  Especially in the summer months, the heat can be overbearing. Here are a few ways you can keep your guests (and yourselves) cool during any beach or outdoor wedding with lovely Mexico as your backdrop.

DIY Fans

Above is a great example of a fan that could be purchased or made to save some money. All you need is a sturdy, wooden stick between heavy card-stock. On it, you could print information about the program, or simply about the happy couple. They could be handed to guests as they arrive, or could be waiting on seats at the ceremony. This way, guests can quietly keep themselves cool as the ceremony progresses– and they can even be taken home as a little wedding favor.

Hydration Stations

When it is hot out, it is especially important that everyone stays hydrated. Offer a number of “hydration stations” around your wedding venue– during both the ceremony and reception– filled with water, tea, lemonade, or any other drink of your choice. This allows your guests to serve themselves as much as they  like.

Waterproof Makeup

Waterproof makeup is a smart move for any wedding, no matter the season, so that your look won’t be destroyed by high emotions. It is especially important in the summer, however, because you not only have to battle misty eyes, but sweat. Waterproof makeup will help you looking great in all your pictures.
