Top tips for a summer wedding

Always a popular time of year for a wedding, summer is the one season where we hope the weather will be kind and people’s spirits will be high. Our latest guide has lots of advice for the perfect summer wedding.

With more daylight hours and heat, your summer wedding can present a whole set of different challenges, from guests overheating and becoming dehydrated, to food becoming spoiled. At the ALS Group, we have almost 30 years’ experience in supplying wedding services and these are our top tips to ensure every aspect of your special day runs smoothly.

Wedding catering

It is vital to plan your wedding menu wisely so choosing a catering specialist like the ALS Group means you can have the confidence that all health and safety measures will be in place and food will be served in a timely fashion.

Based in beautiful Lincolnshire, we source only the finest local ingredients to provide you with a beautiful wedding feast. Whether you are looking for a traditional wedding breakfast menu or are looking for alternative menu ideas, we’ve got you covered with our wedding catering. If you have something in mind, but don’t see it, then let us create a bespoke wedding menu just for you, with all your favourite choices.

Keep everyone hydrated

Make sure guests of all ages have access to water and soft drinks, and not just alcoholic beverages! For all your wedding bar hire needs, the ALS Group has the perfect solution. We can supply a fully stocked and licensed mobile bar hire (with staff) as well as dry bar hire – perfect if you want to give guests full access to refreshments.  Our mobile bar equipment includes a double upright glass fronted fridge and a double bottle fridge and all our equipment is available as a multi-day hire (just call for more details); all you need to do is supply the contents!

Provide plenty of shade

Even overcast summer days can wreak havoc to health, as it is still possible to catch the sun on warm, breezy days. Ensure outdoor venues have sufficient shady places available for guests to sit and relax in, out of direct sunlight – so important for all age groups. Our pagoda marquee hire is a great solution for weddings, with the curved silhouette of the marquee providing an elegant option for shade. To take guests effortlessly from day to evening, the pagoda marquees can be dressed with a choice of linings and furnished with flooring and seating too. It’s worth noting here that metal chairs can quickly heat up, causing discomfort to guests, so wherever possible choose a non-metallic chair option like the elegant Chiavari chair. Failing that, our chair covers are a great cover-up for metal seating and give a uniform and coordinated look to your day.

Our comprehensive wedding service encompasses everything you need for the perfect summer wedding  and by using a one stop shop like the ALS Group, you can avoid all the stress of planning and simply let us turn your vision into a reality. We offer several wedding décor packages, including a summer wedding package but we are always happy to sit down with you and formulate a completely bespoke package just for you.
