If your wedding is planned for the upcoming summer season, or if you’re considering holding your special day during the warmer months but haven’t quite figured out when, there’s so many options that can turn your happy day into a truly memorable occasion for you and your guests.
The team at Reece’s Event Hire love nothing more than to help happy couples with their wedding planning and given our experience with events in Perth, we like to think we know more than most when it comes to celebrations held during the hotter months.
So, we’ve compiled a few ‘hot’ tips that we think could turn your special day into something magical!
Tip #1 – Plan for four seasons in one day
While we’re confident it’s going to be warm, we can’t guarantee that it will be dry on your special day - or a temperature that’s comfortable. If you’re planning an outdoor celebration, it’s critical to look at how much shade you have and how much exposure to the elements you and your guests will have.
Tip #2 – A place to chill out
While summer is a fantastic time of year to hold a wedding, it can also pose a few challenges – particularly if you’re not quite prepared for what could be a 38+ degree day! So to make you and your guests as comfortable as possible, it’s critical that you have plenty of seating – not just for meals, but for those moments in between to allow guests a chance to sit down, relax and get respite from the sticky conditions.
Reece’s Event Hire has plenty of seating options to choose from - here's a few of our favourites:
Tip #3 – Treats to indulge in
Have fun with your menu! Give your guests a day they’ll really remember and get creative with your food and beverage choices. Here’s a few ideas to raise with your caterer that could really bring something different to your big day:
Rustic bar with shelf.
And don’t forget, make sure your guests have access to plenty of water – there’s nothing worse than a rowdy ‘midnight crowd’ and it’s only 5pm! And you don’t want anyone coming down with heat stroke.

Tip #4 – Summer styling
For anyone planning a summer wedding, we’d recommend keeping your styling and colour palette fresh and light and let the (hopefully!) glorious weather take centre stage.
When planning your table décor and furniture look at crisp, white tablecloths and napkins, beautiful glass vases with foliage and seasonal flowers, and light timber chairs. And think about lighting – not just inside, but outside! If it’s a balmy evening, there’s a strong chance your guests will want to mingle outdoors after dinner – so add a touch of romance with stunning strings of festoon lights and outdoor lanterns.
Reece’s Event Hire loves designing lighting concepts for our happy couples – and festoon lighting really is something special!
There's something truly beautiful about outdoor lighting. Festoon lighting is the perfect way to add a touch of casual elegance to your summer wedding,
We hope these ideas provide a little inspiration for your summer celebration! We really do love working with couples to plan their special day and have the experience to make your wedding an occasion to remember – for all the right reasons.
