    My sister is considering a Catholic Ceremony for her wedding...her resort has a catholic preist who WILL conduct the full catholic ceremony at the outdoor gazebo but not the beach. This Gazebo is not in a shady area and the ceremony will be 45min - 1hour long. I told her that is a long time to expect guests to be comfortable in July..when the temperatures are at the hottest! I can just imagine this being a disaster with people feeling ill from heat exhaustion...

    Have any of you attended a full catholic ceremony outdoors in the dead of summer? How did it go? Were people uncomfortable?

      I think it probably will be pretty hot for everyone, but she could always provide fans/water bottles on the chairs - I am having a July wedding and will be putting raffia fans on each chair at the ceremony for people to fan themselves incase they get too hot while they are sitting through the ceremony which for us will be about 30 min.  Depending on her budget, she could also provide parasols in a basket at the ceremony - she would probably only have to get enough for the ladies as the ladies could share their shade with the guys!


      Also, this is just my opinion, but since it is your sister's wedding and she wants to do the Catholic ceremony, I think that the guests should really just respect that...I mean, I've been to INDOOR Catholic ceremonies in the middle of the summer in Canada and I thought I was going to melt, at least outside at the gazebo, there will likely be an island breeze which will help.
