I want an outside wedding... in November... in Australia. How can I keep everyone cool?

The weather is expected to be very hot but we don't want to sacrifice our dream. We'd love to have our wedding outside and under the stars but we don't want even sweating off their makeup and hating the day.

There's a few things that Matt Finch Celebrant suggests:

  1. Ice! Have an iced water stand close by. Or chilled bottles of water. Chilled beer/wine if you get really generous.
  2. Parasols/Umbrellas can be a fun way to block the sun and add some extra styling to the scene.
  3. There are still plenty of gardens/venues that have shaded areas, under some nice big ol' trees could be awesome.
  4. Have a 'Shoes - Off' policy if it really gets hot. Have a basket of various flip flops there as an alternative.
  5. Maybe some hair bands to keep the girls hair up and body cooler?
  6. Or allow the boys to remove their jackets. Not as nice looking, but they would worship you for it.
  7. You could just set the dress code as something more relaxed allowing people to wear cooler clothing. 'Summer Linens', 'A hot day in the Hamptons', 'Cool and Classy' who knows! (I just totally made those up!) Anyway, just because it's a wedding, doesn't mean you have to be formal. A relaxed wedding can be incredible!
  8. Lastly, I'm sure you could hire some kind of big industrial cooler if you're really worried. Just make sure it's not too loud!
Hope that helps!
Now, google Matt Finch Celebrant and let's get cooking! (but not literally).
