Summer weddings are popular for a reason, but when you pick your summer date it’s hard to predict whether the day will be a sunny, breezy mid-70s delight or a record-breaking scorcher. Hope for the dreamy summer day and be prepared for the scorcher with these 10 easy tips. – Wear your hair in an updo to keep your neck cool. – Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Avoid caffeine and stick with plain or flavored waters. – If your wedding’s outdoors, send the ringbearer or flower girl down the aisle with a bowl of ice cubes guests can use to cool exposed skin. – Test-drive sunscreens before the big day to find your favorite. Try a fluid that will melt into skin and won’t be greasy. – Limit your champagne intake – nerves combined with sun exposure might make you more susceptible to booze. – Avoid hair gel as believe it or not, it may melt. Opt for a calming serum and strong hold hairspray. – Try using a potent anti-perspirant like Certain-Dri. – Hand out paper fans as guests arrive. You can find pretty, zen-inspired designs at the dollar store. – Use waterproof mascara and eyeliner and opt for a fresh, nude look – the less makeup on your skin, the better. – If the big day’s going to bring record-breaking heat, consider putting up a tent to offer guests some relief and shade.
