Getting Married at Church without Air Conditioning

Have you ever been to an indoor wedding that did not have the air conditioning running despite the fact that hundreds of people were crammed into a building and the thermostat read “pretty darn hot” outside? I had this experience one time, and let me tell you, it was not a lot of fun.

Of course, everyone who attends a wedding gets dressed up to attend.

The time I am referring to even meant panty hose for the women; plus I’m sure most of us were wearing shapewear and slips under our dresses. Of course, for men, it means undershirts, ties, and coats. I had no idea that this church I was going to would have no air conditioning! The church is located in the northeast, to be fair, so it’s not like the southeast where I live. Still, though, I never thought there would be any building that is intended to house hundreds of people that would forego a/c in this day and age. The church is quite old, having been built in the 1700s, I believe, and it is made out of stone. Admittedly, stone has its own sort of cooling effect, but it certainly is not enough to compensate for actual central air conditioning. I found myself wishing they had chosen to get married in the winter; the church did and does have a furnace! Of course, a winter wedding would mean trekking through the snow, possibly. I do understand that most people get married in either the spring or summer, but I do sincerely hope that everyone else I know who gets married does so in a church that has air conditioning, even if they are in the northern climes!
