3 Cool Wedding Favors for Summer Weddings

Warmer air, longer days and more sunshine – these will definitely get the bride giddy for her summer wedding. Outdoor summer wedding photos are #nofilter worthy, thanks to the natural light that flatters almost everyone at every angle.

But what looks pretty on photos may not feel the same way in the actual wedding. Don’t forget these summer essentials to keep everyone cool on your special day. Give them as giveaways for a buzz-worthy wedding that's an instant talk of the town even when autumn approaches!

Summer Wedding Parasol

A parasol will protect you and your girls from the sun. They’re also great conversation pieces and photo props.

This wedding stays true to its peacock-theme, down to the color of the parasols.

The colorful, lacy parasols complete the 50’s vibe of this wedding. They also add a dressy touch to bridal and bridesmaid dresses that are short to mid-length.

Don’t forget to provide your guests with parasols during the ceremony to shield them from the rays of the sun while you say your vows.

You can opt for colorful umbrellas instead if you’re getting hitched in a tropical country, where it’s either rainy or sunny.

Fans to Combat Sweaty Moments

You wouldn’t like beads of sweat showing on your wedding photos, would you? The guests wouldn’t like that either. Do everyone a favor and provide fans, which can also double as your wedding favor.

These fans will go a long way even after the wedding. Engrave or paint your initials on the fan so that the guests will always remember where these handy fans came from.

Rafia fans are tropical summer wedding essentials. The orchid softens the highly textured summer accessory.

Think outside the box. You don’t need to buy real fans to help your guests cool down. Print your program on stiffer paper and attach a handle. Voila! An instant fan.

Shield Your Peepers with Sunglasses

How can the guests appreciate your outdoor ceremony if they’re squinting from the bright rays of the summer sun? Sunglasses will come in handy for the occasion. Plus, they look cool in the bridal party photos no matter what theme you choose.
