There is little doubt summer weddings are paired with humidity thanks to our close proximity to the ocean and all the surrounding smaller bodies of water. When choosing outfits for the guys, opt for lighter weight fabrics and colors that won't absorb the heat as much.

The most popular styles of summer wedding dresses are typically flowy with lighter skirts and minimal, if any, sleeves. Minimal beading and no lace are often preferred for summer brides.

When it's hot out, no one wants to sit and eat a heavy meal. Opt instead for seasonal fares, cold plates, salads and food served in smaller portions.
