Have you ever been to an indoor wedding service that did not have the air conditioning running despite the fact that hundreds of people were crammed into a building and the thermostat study “pretty darn hot” outside? I had this experience a single time, and let me tell you, it was not a lot of fun, of course, most people who attends a ceremony gets dressed up to attend, however the moment in particular that I am referring to even meant panty hose for the ladies; plus I’m sure most of us were wearing shapewear and slips under my blouse.
Of course, for men, it means undershirts, ties, and jackets.
I had no method 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 home hundreds of people that would forego in this day and age. The church is quite old, having been built in the early 1790s, I believe, and it is made out of stone! Admittedly, tile has its own sort of cooling effect, however it entirely 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 heating unit! Naturally, a chilly winter ceremony would mean trekking through the snow, possibly. I do understand that most people get married in either the Spring or summer, although I do truthfully hope that most people else I assume who gets married does so in a church that has air conditioning, even if they are in the northern climes!
