Tidbits + Tips | Seasonal Options

We’ve shared lots of tips for back-up plans in case of inclement weather, but what if you’re just planning your wedding during a chilly or toasty time of year? While a tent can offer shade from the sun and protection from brisk winds, there are plenty of other ways to keep guests comfortable while being out in the elements!

Beverage stations – this is a quick and easy way to make sure you and your guests stay hydrated. Talk to your caterer about featuring fruit infused water, lemonade, fruit punch or iced tea for warmer months and hot coffee or cocoa for winter months {consider adding flavored syrups, cinnamon or peppermint sticks, and even marshmallows for an interactive station}.

Pashminas – for ladies that may forget their coat or sweater at home, consider purchasing a few bundles of pashminas. These pretty wraps come in lots of colors and guests can take them home as an added favor.

Hors d’oeuvres – one of my favorite ways to warm up is with a hot bowl of yummy soup. If you don’t want offer soup as part of the meal, consider a soup shooter as an hors d’oeuvre! These are great butler passed or displayed and are easy for guests to manage. Chilled soup shooters are also be a fun option for summer events!
