I'm melting…..MELTING!!!

This post was inspired by the 100+ degree heat wave we experienced this weekend in Southern California.  I could think of nothing else except how to survive in this heat…..which prompted me to think of the poor guests that may be attending a wedding when it’s this blazing hot!!  Below are a few ideas you could treat your guests to, so they will be able to dance the night away with you, before melting into a puddle of taffeta.

 

Serve pre-ceremony sno-cones!! Create a signature “mock”tail and serve it snow cone-style by pouring a flavored syrup over finely crushed ice and serve in a little wax cup or even a stemless martini glass:

Parasols in a basket for guests to use during the ceremony are always an adorable picture, if nothing else:

Make double use of your programs by creating program fans, this gorgeous one created by Cards De Luxe:

 

Or the paddle style program fan, the handles of which you can find at No Ordinary Day Invitations:

 

 

You can also just place fans at each seat (from Bliss Weddings):

Or these sandlefood fans from Wedding Favors to Love:

 

 

Rent some misting fans for the cocktail hour (from Elegant Mist):

 

 

What could be a better treat than passing out mini ice cream cones during dancing?  Your guests will adore you (not that they don’t already!!):
