Beach Wedding

Today we’ve been invited to a beach wedding. Lucky you!

I’ve always wanted to attend a beach wedding! The beautiful sunset in the background, blue water, white sand, humidity bringing on the frizzy hair, wind kicking up sand in my eyes…wait a minute! It’s true, while beach weddings are beautiful they can be a hazard to beauty!

First tip I have for a beach wedding is wear a long dress! It’s going to be windy and the guests don’t want to see your undies. Also, pick a dress in a bright color. A blue or beige dress is just going to blend into the background. Consider travel friendly fabrics…I’m guessing this is a destination wedding and you will be storing your dress in a suitcase for a period of time.

Second tip I have is don’t worry about your hair…too much. I suggest putting your hair in a “messy” low bun accented with a flower pin. Take extra bobby pins and right before the reception go to a mirror and pin back the fly a ways and spray an anti humidity hair spray.

Third tip is to wear sun screen! Get a travel size tube to keep in your clutch and apply often. Don’t forget to apply to the tops of feet and earlobes. Choose a face moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or above. This is not the time to work on your tan! You’ll be sitting in the sun for an hour during a beach wedding so be prepared!
