With summer right around the corner and the hot weather already beginning to set in, wedding-goers have to take Texas’ unpredictable weather into consideration. Summer is the onset of outdoor wedding season and while we can’t change the wedding venue, we can do our best to minimize the effects the weather has on us. Here are some summer wedding do’s and dont’s that will keep you looking cool and composed during the Texas heat wave!
- Do wear fabrics such as cotton or linen. These fabrics will keep you cooler than a silk or lace dress will. Additionally, since summer weddings have a lot of dancing and moving around outside, cotton dresses are more appropriate. A cute summer dress is the perfect outfit for an outdoor summer wedding. If you are the bride, don’t think that you can’t have the ball gown dress you have had your eye on, but do think about trying a gown made of light silk or chiffon material.

Your best bet to prevent your makeup from running is opting for a waterproof mascara, eyeliner, and lipstick.
