On hot and sunny days, ensure you have ample shade available. Set up umbrellas and canopies to provide relief from the sun. Having plenty of cold drink options will help to keep everyone hydrated.

For cooler temperatures, you can provide cosy blankets for guests to stay warm. Consider having a fire pit or outdoor heaters available to create a comfortable atmosphere. You could even serve warm drinks like hot chocolate to keep everyone toasty.

Remember, weather forecasts can change, so keep an eye on updates closer to the day. Flexibility and preparedness are key to ensuring your BBQ is enjoyable, come rain or shine.
