#1 Make sure your venue has air con
Prior to booking your wedding venue, you’ll want to make sure you ask all the right questions, one of which being ‘Do you have air conditioning?’ Most venues will have this as standard but it’s important to remember that some won’t and the last thing you want is for everyone to be overheating on your big day. With so many guests in such close proximity, this is easy to do and something you want to avoid at all costs so make sure your venue provides air con.
#2 Stay hydrated
This may sound obvious but it’s surprising how many people forget to drink plenty of water. It’s so easy to get caught up in all the excitement of the wedding morning but so many brides get to midday without having eat or drunk anything and that can easily lead to headaches, migraines and dizziness, none of which you’ll want to experience on your big day. Some brides won’t wish to drink too much water with the fear of needing to manoeuvre the bathroom in their wedding dress but make sure you drink lots because it’s easier to manoeuvre the bathroom than fight off the onset of a headache. Not only will this keep you feeling energized but it’ll also help you to keep cool which is essential for those summer months.
#3 Wear your hair up
Keeping your hair off your face and neck is so simple yet such an effective way to keep cool.
#4 Have a water spray bottle on hand
If you’re planning on getting married at the height of summer, this nifty little trick won’t go unrewarded. It will give instant relief to inescapable heat … Thank us later ladies!
#5 Keep your perfume in the fridge
If a water spray bottle just isn’t for you, why not keep your perfume in the fridge and when you spray it, it’ll give you instant relief and keep you that extra little bit cooler.
#6 Use Quality Make up
When it comes to your wedding make up, it’s important to invest a little bit more to make sure it stays in place. Spend a little more on primers and setting sprays to keep your look in place all day but do your research as you won’t want to look shiny in your wedding photos so opt for primers that have a matte finish.
#7 Wear SPF
If you’re planning to spend much of your time outdoors, even if it’s just for the wedding photos, make sure you apply an SPF sunscreen so that you don’t burn or get heatstroke.
#8 Use an umbrella or parasol
Invest in a fabulous looking parasol, not only do these make for fun, vintage photos but they also shelter you from the blazing sun keeping you cool and in control.
#9 Use a hand held fan
These are a great way to keep cool so make sure you have one in your clutch bag. Not only is this a great way to cool you down but it’s something your guests would really appreciate too so why not double up your order of services for hand held fans. Your guests will be thanking you later.
#10 Invest in additional products
Whether it be a good deodorant or anti chafing products, it will all come in handy to keep you looking cool and refreshed so make sure you invest a little more so you are absolutely comfortable when it comes to walking down the aisle and tying the knot!
