Keeping Cool on Your Wedding day

Although the arrival of September is etching us closer towards autumn, the days can still feel rather warm, particularly if you happen to be in a wedding dress. On your wedding day, it will come as no surprise that everyone will want to catch up with you and you may find yourself moving around for things such as photos, travelling to your next venue and, of course, dancing. Your wedding day is not the time for hot flushes so we’ve put together a few tips to keep you feeling fresh on your big day.


With many guests to greet and thank, you may find yourself extremely thirsty as the day goes on, without enough time to grab a drink. To help keep you hydrated, grab yourself a glass of water as soon as you arrive at your reception venue. You may even make a point of having a fresh jug of water on each table, making it easy to grab a drink when mingling with your guests. Alternatively, if you have a great bunch of bridesmaids to hand, get them to hand you a drink whenever they spot you without a drink in your hand for too long.

Hair and Makeup

Your hair and makeup can play a part in how fresh you feel during the day. You may find it more comfortable to wear your hair up, particularly if you know the weather will be warm on your big day. Wearing your hair up will also stop it from getting in the way if there is a breeze.

When it comes to your makeup, be sure to use products that you know will stand the test of time. It can be tempting to experiment with new makeup for your wedding day, but if you’re unsure how it will last on your skin or the finish it will give, it may be better to opt for the favourites you know work for the look you want to achieve. Makeup fixing sprays can help extend the longevity of your makeup and you may want to ask one of your bridesmaids to carry a transparent powder for you to touch up throughout the day if you need to.

Be Practical

If you’re likely to get a bit too warm on your wedding day, your guests that are dressed up in suits and dresses may also feel the same. Consider putting multiple mini fans on each table or for a more glamorous option, perhaps invest in personalised paper fans to help cool things down.
