With our experience comes all kinds of tips and tricks that we have noticed or learned over the years. Take advantage of Rockwell Catering as you plan for wedding catering in Salt Lake City! We have been around the block a time or two and have seen our fair share of successes and failures when it comes to having a perfect summer wedding. Believe us when we say that there is a right way and a wrong way of doing things! Here are our tips for having a perfect summer wedding.
1. Take the heat into account! Yes, summer is hot, but occasionally there is a day that is just blazing! Go ahead and just plan on it being one of those heat wave days so that you are prepared no matter what. Plan for the extra shade. Plan for air conditioned breaks. Plan for hydration. Too often, our customers don’t take the heat into account and they end up dehydrated and grouchy! Don’t forget: this is YOUR day! Take some time for a cool down so you feel your best! When you are at your best, you are less stressed!
2. Outfit change! It might be a good idea to consider an outfit change during your summer wedding catering in Salt Lake City. Wedding dresses and suits aren’t known for being heat friendly. After the ceremony, it’s a great idea to have an outfit change. Change into something lighter and more comfortable, especially since the day is only getting hotter. It’s also nice to wear something less bulky as you mix and mingle at your wedding reception.
3. Keep the food light! When you think of summertime meals, you probably don’t envision a slow-braised pot roast or a deep-dish lasagna, right? Choose food for your wedding that is indicative of summer. Pick the grilled menu or choose a variety of summertime appetizers that showcase summer produce. Maybe even consider an Italian soda bar to keep things cool.
4. Allow for mingling! When you have an evening reception in the summer, you get to enjoy the magic hour of when the sun is just gone down and the heat has subsided. Let that reception go late so you can enjoy the best time of day in the summer! Too often, we see brides and grooms end their events at 7:30 or 8:00. Keep the party going while the weather is at its best! Your guests will enjoy the food and drink much more after the sun has gone down.
