If you’re someone who dreams of an outdoor wedding with fabulous florals, sunny weather and vibrant colors, a summer wedding is probably right up your alley. While the gorgeous, reliable weather makes it one of the more popular times for weddings, the heat can also be either your wedding day’s best friend or arch nemesis. For that reason, we’ve compiled 7 expert-approved tips for surviving the sun on the day of your wedding.
Look For Light & Cool Fabrics
Go Short for the Party
Consider opting for a second dress that will not only help you move on the dance floor, but will also give you a break from a floor-length dress!

Have your MOH come prepared with a survival kit – this includes blotting papers, deodorant, a fan & extra lipstick for after you hydrate!
Wear Makeup with SPF
Before and during the wedding we recommend wearing sunscreen because you don’t want to take the term ‘blushing bride’ too literally!

Think of Your Guests
Keep in mind that your guests may want a break from the sun. We recommend creating a lounge in the sun or having umbrellas available for the ceremony & cocktail hours. Also confirm that your venue will have water readily available for guests (Bonus: This will also help with any potential hangovers!)
Choose Summer-Friendly Bridesmaid Styles
Style your squad with the weather in mind because nothing’s worse than scorching hot weather than a cranky bridesmaid. Choose a style with minimal straps (because nobody wants a giant X sunburnt across their back) or event a slit!
