Summer is a popular time of year for weddings and receptions. Planning a summer wedding can be delightful, but it also requires thoughtful consideration to ensure that you and your guests stay comfortable in the warm weather. Our couples who book their summer weddings at Cornerstone Ranch Events in Amarillo, TX rave about our lush green backyard area & shaded back porch! Hanging out on the porch on cool summer nights and catching up with old friends is a favorite here in Texas. Here are some tips for beating the heat at your summer Texas wedding reception.


Choose Breathable Fabrics: Choose lightweight and breathable materials for your wedding outfit. Think about using airy fabrics such as chiffon, lace, or organza for the bride's attire. Grooms can opt for lightweight suits or linen blends in soft hues to stay comfortable. To achieve a more relaxed and cooler appearance, think about forgoing the jacket and choosing a vest and tie combination instead.

Hydrate: Stay hydrated throughout the day. Have water bottles nearby and take breaks to drink water, especially if you're spending time outdoors for photos or ceremonies. Hydration is key for any bride on her wedding day, but summer weddings in Texas mean extra water bottles for you and your bridal party!

Cooling Stations: Set up cooling areas equipped with chilled water, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and portable fans for guests to utilize as necessary. Placing water bottle stations close to the ceremony location is highly recommended. Ensure numerous water stations are accessible to guests across the venue, especially following the conclusion of the outdoor ceremony. Delight guests with options such as infused water, lemonade, or iced tea for a refreshing experience.


Provide Shade: If possible, set up shaded areas with tents, umbrellas, or canopies for guests to retreat from the sun during outdoor ceremonies or receptions. Cornerstone Ranch has a large shaded back patio and pergola that is perfect for your outdoor cocktail hour.

Timing: Schedule outdoor ceremonies or events during cooler times of the day, such as late afternoon or early evening, to avoid the peak heat hours. Consider having your wedding in the morning hours, then guests can enjoy the air conditioning during the hottest part of the day.


Indoor Alternatives: Have indoor areas available for guests to cool down if the heat becomes too intense, especially during cocktail hours or breaks between events. Choosing a wedding venue with indoor air conditioning is so important to Texas brides! Our event venue is fully equipped with plenty of air conditioning for you and your guests to stay cool. Texas summers are no match for our well-air-conditioned venue. Our 10,000 square foot venue is fully air conditioned, ensuring every guest can remain comfortable, whether it be inside or out. If the heat is just too much to bear for an outdoor ceremony, Cornerstone Ranch has plenty of room to bring your wedding ceremony inside! Check out a few of our inside wedding setups here at Cornerstone Ranch Events!



Weather Updates: Keep an eye on weather forecasts leading up to your wedding day and have a backup plan in case of unexpected heatwaves or rain. At Cornerstone Ranch, we meet with our couples 1 month before their event. We discuss our backup plan with them to ensure they have peace of mind knowing we will take good care of them on their wedding day. We have plenty of room inside to bring the ceremony indoors if needed. Our staff does not set up ceremony chairs until 2 hours prior to the wedding, to make sure weather conditions are right for an outdoor event.


By planning ahead and taking these precautions, you can ensure that everyone stays cool, comfortable, and able to fully enjoy your summer wedding celebration. Choosing the right venue for your summer wedding and reception really does have an impact on your guests and their overall experience. Consider Cornerstone Ranch Events Center in Amarillo, Texas for your summer wedding and reception! Contact us today to book a tour!
