Warmer weather is the season for enjoying open-air celebrations and stylish outdoor weddings. But when your guests have seasonal allergies such as hay-fever to contend with, the thought of spending time outside at a wedding reception can bring visions of sneezing and wheezing rather than having fun! If you’re planning a summer wedding, our Tips to Beat Seasonal Allergies at Summer Weddings can help to ensure that a good time is had by all:
Timing is Everything
Pollen counts are highest in the morning (5am-10am), so plan your wedding for later in the day or evening. Or go a step further and try to hold your celebration on a day that should have a low pollen count. Most summer weather forecasts detail this, but to plan further ahead, check out the Met Office forecast.
Knowledge is Wisdom
Allergy medications are more effective when you take them before you have symptoms. Telling your guests in advance that your wedding is outdoors gives them the opportunity to take their allergy medication before they arrive. It also serves as a reminder for them to bring any emergency medication with them.
