Planning Tips for Summer Weddings

Beat the heat with our expert tips from celebrity wedding planners JoAnn Gregoli and Mindy Weiss.



You gotta keep your guests hydrated if you want them dancing all night long! Both Weiss and Gregoli agree having water, lemonade and juice stations both before and during the ceremony is key. At all times guests should be able to find liquids—the non-alcoholic ones, that is.
Regarding your cocktails, anything watermelon is sure to be an unexpected treat—not many drinks feature the vibrant summer fruit. The color and taste of a cool watermelon martini, mojito or infused-vodka will most certainly be proud pleasers. Gregoli’s other top cocktail suggestions include mango or blood orange margaritas, rum punch, and lemonade caprinhas—a sweet, iced lemonade beverage.
