Whether you are invited to a summer or a destination wedding on a beautiful beach, the sun is shining and the heat will be at an all time high. The long sun filled days and hot summer nights can be fun as you celebrate love. With the heat it can get uncomfortable. Don’t worry, there are some tips that will help you get through the day without a wardrobe malfunction, makeup mishap, or anything else you might not expect.
Here are some tips on surviving the summer wedding.
Dress accordingly – Think fabrics, colors, and cool. Remember it’s summer and with the temperature and humidity, that means a different level of heat in different areas in the world. Check out the temperature and humidity levels at your destination. Choose an outfit will keep you cool and comfortable. Remember this is a long day especially for guests who are traveling.
Opt for an updo – There are a couple of ways you can do this. If you must show off your length, start with your hair down, and bring the right accessories that will help you switch to an updo. Practice your look prior so you can change your hairstyle with ease.
Mind your makeup – Avoid liquids. Opt for power, waterproof mascara, and a finishing spray. Facial wipes will help as well.
Look back at it – The chair, that is. If there are metal seats the heat have your chair nice and warm. Bring a shawl or be prepared to squirm for a little bit. You also want to double check to see that there is nothing on the chair before you sit.
Stay hydrated – Water is your friend during this time. It will help you stay cool and get through some of the hottest locations.
Have fun – Yes, people will be fanning with the wedding programs, others will complain, and you already know folks will be using the hot weather to start conversations. But guess what, everyone is hot and it’s all good. Make the most of it and have fun. You are at a wedding and a happy occasion. Enjoy the memories, festivities, and experience.
