Summer is definitely one of the best times to tie the knot. And with temps rising, you want to be sure you keep your guests cool and refreshed. If your wedding day is set for one of these warm months, try incorporating some of these sweet and cool treats. Your (hot) guests will thank you!
Ice cream is always the most obvious choice. And let’s be honest, who hates ice cream? No one. There are plenty of creative ways to serve it up. Ice cream cone cakes, ice cream stands and signature cocktails with a bit of the sweet stuff are just a few. Heck, you can even hire an ice cream truck to roll right up to your reception.

Lemonade is also an incredibly refreshing choice. Serve it straight up or frozen. If you are looking for an easy serve yourself option, invest in some classy drink dispensers and pair with cucumber water and iced tea.

Popsicles and shaved ice are lighter choices than ice cream, but equally as cooling. Plus they are super fun to customize. You can whip up your very own gourmet flavors with different juices or adding in some fresh fruit.
