How to Cool Down Your Outdoor Wedding

Air Conditioner Weddings

Outdoor weddings are a quickly increasing trend, and they don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Popular outdoor wedding venues include barns, vineyards, parks, and even a family member’s property. While these types of venues will fulfill your wedding dreams, they come with very particular challenges. One of the more difficult issues to solve may be climate control. Particularly, cooling down your outdoor wedding. Usually, outdoor weddings take place in the warmer months of the year. Having a summer wedding is great for getting beautiful outdoor pictures, and gives you the option for outdoor activities. While the summertime perfect for these gatherings, the weather could go either way. You could have a wonderful sunny day in the 70’s, or you could have a scorcher that breaks 100 degrees. To help you plan for the worst, you may wonder how to mitigate the risk of having sweaty and uncomfortable guests. So we’re going to walk you through a few solutions to cool down your outdoor wedding.

Portable Air Conditioning

When your outdoor wedding is in an enclosed space like a tent, barn, or non-air conditioned building, portable air conditioning could be a solution to cool down your guests. Portable air conditioners are the most efficient way to keep your enclosed space at the ideal temperature. We at On Site Companies have several different sizes of air conditioners to cool down any size space. Renting air conditioners is a great solution if you’re worried about your venue or tent getting hot and stuffy, but it might not be a good fit for every event. Smaller spot coolers can be plugged into a normal 120V plugin, but most others have to be hard wired into electrical systems. It’s also possible that you may not have the electricity available to operate larger portable air conditioners. When this is the case, you may have to rent generators to run them during your wedding. A trained sales representative can help you decide which type and size portable air conditioner would work best for your space, and how much electricity it will require. Once you have this information, you can better decide if renting air conditioners is the best choice for your wedding.

Indoor Air Circulation

If your budget doesn’t have room for renting air conditioners, or your space isn’t totally enclosed, you may have to consider just renting air movers. Air movers come in different sizes to give you optimal airflow. While fans won’t necessarily cool the air, a fan can help replace hot and humid air with cooler and drier air from outside or another space.

Outdoor Cooling Stations

So what if renting portable air conditioners are out of your price range, or you don’t have an enclosed space to cool? Then you might be a great candidate for an outdoor cooling station. You can easily create an outdoor cooling station with a few pieces of equipment. Cooling stations usually consist of a mix of misting fans and regular air movers. Misting fans are exactly what they sound like. They are freestanding fans with a water reservoir tank attached. A hose will pull water up and shoot it through the fan to create a pleasant cool mist. To create the perfect cooling station you can group 3-4 misting fans in an area so people can gather around with drinks and socialize. If you want to make your station go a little further you can rent additional large air movers. Depending on how many people you’re hosting, you could set up several cooling stations around your wedding site. Cooling stations provide you with a great outdoor solution that won’t break the bank.

Provide Cool Treats

Everyone always thinks that a cake is the go-to dessert for a wedding, but you can instead choose cool treats for desert. Wouldn’t it be cool to have a build your own ice cream sundae bar? It would cost WAY less than a traditional wedding cake, and your friends and family can have a refreshing treat. There are several options out there such as renting a soft serve ice cream machine or having a company like Cold Stone Creamery cater your deserts. There are even frozen yogurt food trucks you can hire to show up. Options such as these can be a cool respite on a hot wedding day, and be something a fun experience to set your wedding apart from all the others. Don’t let a sloppy hot day ruin your wedding. There are things you can do ranging from air conditioning rentals, outdoor cooling stations, or cool treats for your friends and family. If would like to rent any of the equipment discussed from On Site, you can email us at sales@onsiteco.com or give us a call at 1.800.210.8407.

Construction Sanitation

If you’re responsible for managing construction sites, odds are good that you’ve faced the unique challenge of providing your workers with clean and convenient spaces to use the restroom while they’re on the job. Of course, one of the best ways to address this problem is by ordering portable toilets. If you rent from a reputable provider, these units will be durable enough to withstand any harsh weather that strikes and come stocked with all of the sanitation resources your team will need. However, despite the incredible benefits that portable toilets bring to construction sites, they do have one major drawback compared to the standard bathrooms you find in homes: their limited capacity.
