Top Summer Wedding Tips from our In-House Wedding Planners

Summer weddings are a magical time filled with warmth, vibrant colors, and endless possibilities. At Grico’s, our in-house wedding planners are experts at creating unforgettable summer weddings. Read on to know their top tips to ensure your special day is perfect.

Tip 1- Choose the Venue with Summer in Mind

Selecting a venue with the hot summer months in consideration is crucial. We recently catered a wedding at Friedman Farms, where the new installation of A/C units and fans made a significant difference. The barn was surprisingly comfortable, and guests were very appreciative of this factor. When choosing your venue, ensure it has adequate cooling options to keep everyone comfortable, no matter how high the temperature climbs.


Tip 2- Keep the Menu Summer-Relevant

The City of Jacksonville, Texas is home to one of Federal Heath’s four manufacturing facilities and at least 175, 665 lb. concrete tomatoes. A look at Jacksonville’s history reveals that the City was once known as the Tomato Capital of the World in the 1930’s, and still celebrates with a Tomato Fest each June.


Tip 3- Provide Plenty Hydration Options

Staying hydrated is essential during a summer wedding. Ensure there are lots of options for hydration, including both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Offering a variety of refreshing drinks such as infused water, lemonade, iced tea, and mocktails can keep your guests cool and satisfied. Hydration stations with easy access can be a fun and practical addition to your wedding setup, ensuring everyone stays comfortable throughout the celebration.

At Grico’s, we believe that a well-planned summer wedding captures the essence of the season while ensuring the comfort and enjoyment of your guests. By following these tips from our experienced in-house wedding planners, you can create a beautiful and memorable celebration that you and your loved ones will cherish forever.
