Convert The Drink Menu To Juices/ Sodas/ Coconut Water

We all love juices, we all love well-made cocktails so why not try to put them in pre-packaged mason jars and display them in ice-buckets for everyone to have a sip. Try to have more hydrating drinks with Indian flavours - Jamun, rose, lime, coconut water are the most popular choices. They will hydrate everyone in a jiffy and we're back to business. You could even have old-fashioned soda bars with all your childhood favourites like Limca, 7 Up, Miranda and Dukes in tow.
Gift Them Hand Fans To Battery Operated Ones

Well, hand fans are so so Indian but the new battery-operated Chinese ones are not bad either. So choose one according to your wedding theme - go from cane ones to electrical hand fans, place them on each table and let your guests breathe in some fresh air. Add in old style kitchen fans at tables for some fun.
Add Alcoholic Ice Lollies To The Mix

Who loves ice-cream? Everyone that's who. Who likes alcohol? Everyone, that's who. Mix them up and make ice lollies with a variety of flavours - Kala Khatta, Mango, Rsaberry etc and let your guests enjoy.

Personalised gifts on the side are so totally amazing - offer them everything from sunglasses to flip flops placed in a basket. A friend included lungis with velcro so everyone can wear them in the heat at a Kerala wedding.

Of course, water bottles is mandatory at summer weddings but why not add some drama by giving your guests fruit-infused ones - strawberry, grapes, lime, you name it. Add herbs and chaas to cool it down.
