How to stay cool on your wedding day

wedding photographer kent-1234Most brides want the clouds to stay away for their wedding day, but is there such a thing as too much sunshine?

Perhaps, if you want to avoid looking hot and bothered in your wedding photographs!

It may not seem like a priority if you’re planning a ceremony in the UK, as the British summer is not exactly known for its scorching temperatures. But heatwaves are possible, even here in Kent, so we’ve put together some tips to help you stay cool on your big day.

As with most things, preparation is key. If you’re planning a summer wedding, pick a venue that will offer you and your guests areas that are out of the sun. Air conditioning inside is always a winner, or the thick stone walls of an old church or historic venue. If you’re planning on spending a lot of time outside, trees will provide natural shade, or consider marquees with fans to provide respite from the heat.

It would be unwise to pick a heavy velvet dress for a summer wedding, so think about floatier fabrics and a looser fit – it can still be fitted, and lace-up styles are ideal because they can be adjusted throughout the day. Grooms may want to bring an extra shirt to change into before the reception if it is forecast to be very warm.

This is the perfect opportunity for your bridesmaids to play an important role in the day – and not just by standing around fanning you, although that would be perfect too! But they can also keep you well-supplied with water and keep an eye on any guests who look like they may be flagging.

If you’re working with a professional make-up artist, they will be able to advise you on the best way to keep your make-up in place by using a good base. Adding an extra supply of tissues to your bridal bag is a good idea too, to blot away shine as well as any happy tears.

It’s also a great opportunity to show off your creative side – perhaps the programmes or menus could be printed on fans, or you could come up with a range of alcohol-free iced cocktails, or place bottles of water at each table setting for guests to spritz themselves with.

You could even embrace the summer holiday vibe and add some water play into the day – water slides, water balloons or paddling pools could be great fun if you’re planning a laid-back celebration and will make some really fun photographs. But just make sure you’ve taken all the formal photos you want before you get stuck in!

Wedding beauty tips

So you’ve got the venue, the dress and hopefully the photographer too…now to make sure you look your best on your wedding day.

So much depends on the style of your wedding, and of course your personal taste and preferences. But here are some tips to help you get the right finishing touches for your wedding make-up. Check back for some hair tips in our next blog!

Some brides rarely leave the house without a full face of make-up, while others only add mascara and lip gloss for special occasions. But even if you usually prefer a more natural look, it’s worth considering make-up for your wedding day. Not only will it enhance your own best features and make you look truly radiant, but it will prevent you looking washed-out in those all-important photos – and there will be lots of photos!

You don’t have to transform yourself into someone totally unrecognisable but the idea is that your bridal look should be your best you, so it makes sense to take some time to plan.

About six weeks before the wedding, consider indulging in some beauty treatments. Facials can get rid of dead skin and leave you glowing – but don’t leave it too close to the big day just in case your skin reacts.

If you’re planning on using a professional make-up artist, book early to make sure you have time for a trial run and to discuss ideas. But it’s not an essential – rumour has it Kate Middleton did her own make-up when she married her Prince Charming.

It is worth investing in a good base; you’re going to be in the spotlight all day and you’ll want to look as gorgeous at the reception as you did arriving at the ceremony. So find a foundation that works for you and again, don’t leave it till the last minute.

For lips and eyes, don’t be tempted to go too dark – the idea is to create a timeless look so your photos won’t look too dated. Pink lips and neutral eyeshadows work best for neutral to cool skin tones, and peach to brown shades for warmer skin. Don’t forget the mascara, and ideally make it tear proof – perhaps try it out while watching your favourite weepie film to make sure!

It’s important not to forget your nails too – after all, all eyes will be on your hands and that all-important ring. Again, neutral shades are best, and you can’t go far wrong with a classic French manicure.

If you’re doing it yourself, do make time for a run through just to make sure you’re happy with the results. And if you have a bridesmaid who has a particular skill with a make-up brush or manicure set, consider asking for her input. If you’ve always coveted her subtle but sparkly nail polish, it could even be your ‘something borrowed’…

Whatever look you decide on, make sure you’re comfortable with it and that it makes you feel beautiful. Then simply relax and enjoy your day!
