Surviving a Summer Wedding
While outdoor summer weddings can be really beautiful, that doesn’t mean they don’t come with their own set of problems. From frizzy hair to melting makeup, heavy suits and open-air venues – the sun, heat and humidity can lead to all sorts of problems that no bridal party or guest wants to run into! Here are a few Happy Heart tips to help your day feel a whole lot cooler:
Tie your hair up - Opting for an up-do will prevent your hair from turning into a frizzy mess, and keep you looking cool, calm and collected.
Wear light colours - Avoid dressing in dark clothing, stay cool with a dress in a pale or pastel shade, and encourage the groom to pick light coloured suits.
Create plenty of shade – When the sun is blazing, having a tent or gazebo at your wedding is sure to provide additional comfort for your guests.
Stay hydrated - Have lots of water available for your guests and bridal party, and stay hydrated throughout the day by drinking lots of water.
Pack your sunglasses - Shade yourself from the bright sun and pack a pair of sunglasses that go with your outfit, wear them between photos or during the pics to add a bit of fun.
Wave the fan - Offer each guest a fan on his or her chair so that everyone can stay cool and enjoy your beautiful personalised ceremony.
