Cool Down at Your Summer Wedding

Having a summer or early fall wedding in North Carolina? Chances are, it's going to be HOT.

Take a look at these fun and creative ways to help keep your guests cool when the temps are high!


  1. Serve popsicles during your cocktail hour or reception! Ask your caterer about having a cooler with your favorite popsicles out for your guests. You could go gourmet with a vendor like LocoPops from Durham, NC, or DIY it with popsicles from the grocery store.

  2. Have an ice cream truck come to your event! Many ice cream trucks will provide full-service ice cream at your event. One of our favorites is Two Roosters which is a local Triangle favorite!

  3. Serve refreshing drinks or cocktails! Rocky Top Catering has an extensive list of non-alcoholic beverages and cocktails to make sure your guests stay cool. Ask about their strawberry lemonade, peach tea, or our favorite cocktail The Social Butterfly, with Social House vodka, cranberry juice, pom, prosecco and blackberry.

  4. Give fans as your favors! You could even have your programs printed on fans to create a nice keepsake for you and your guests.

  5. Have indoor or shady area for your guests to take a break from the heat. Our venue has multiple different indoor and outdoor spaces to make sure your guests can stay cool and get fresh air. If opting for an outdoor wedding, consider adding a tent with misters and fans!

  6. Make sure to tell your guests wedding details on your website! Having a ceremony outdoors? Tell your guests ahead of time so they can dress appropriately for the weather.
