Summer weddings can be intense, and not just because of the huge commitment the happy couple is making! When temperatures reach the 90s and you’re enjoying your outdoor wedding, it can be downright uncomfortable — and that’s the last thing you want to feel on the happiest day of your life! Brides in dresses are likely caked with makeup and hairspray, making even a little bit of sweat a total bummer! Grooms are dressed to the nines in heavy suits with plenty of layers. But, don’t worry. In today’s blog, we’re going to help you learn how to avoid sweating off your makeup that you paid lots of money for someone to do and how to avoid getting pit stains on your suit! Keep reading to learn more to learn how to use fans, water, and an event tent rental to beat the heat!
Bring a Fan
A fan will make a huge difference on the big day! Choose a portable, battery-powered fan that you can use to cool down. Bonus points if you gift individual fans to all of your bridesmaids and groomsmen! Put the photographer, wedding planner, or maid of honor in charge of fanning the bride anytime she begins to break a sweat.
Heat exhaustion is real, and one of the best ways to avoid it is to stay hydrated. You lose a lot of moisture when you sweat on a hot day, and you need to constantly be replenishing it. Sip on ice-cold water all day from the moment you wake up until you make your grand exit. Not only will this help you avoid overheating, but it will also ward off headaches or accidentally getting too intoxicated.
Find Some Shade
Shade can truly cool you down, so make sure you have plenty of it! If you are having an outdoor ceremony, consider renting parasols for guests to keep the sun off of them (especially for Grandma and Grandpa!) You can even hold a parasol during the ceremony to keep you cool and make some amazing memories!
If your reception is also outside, make sure to secure your wedding tent rental well in advance, as these white tent rentals tend to be in short supply during the summer — especially on weekends. Signature Event Rentals offers wedding canopies for rent in a number of sizes and styles so you can find the perfect look to complement your event.
Use A Cold Cloth
If you begin to overheat to the point of being uncomfortable or even dizzy, take a cold, wet washcloth and hold it to the back of your neck, your feet, or the crook of your elbow. These are known as quick-cooling spots that can make your entire body feel cool. This is because your pulse points in these areas are close to the surface, allowing you to cool down the blood that is circulating through your body. This will help to immediately cool you down without ruining your hair or makeup and it can make a world of difference.
