If you have your heart set on an outdoor ceremony, consider providing guests with a provision or two to make the heat of the day a little more bearable. Nicole Reddam of Atlanta once attended an outdoor event where the bride kept guests cool with some pretty creative programs.

"We went to a wedding at the beach, and the program was printed on hand fans for all the guests," said Nicole. "It really took the edge off the heat and made a nice little keepsake, too!"

Whether you create your own hand fan or come up with a similar idea, your guests will surely appreciate your creativity and sensitivity during the wedding.
