Some things just don't mix - heat and heavy wedding dresses!

If you are lucky enough to be blessed with some sunny weather on the Big Day, or you are planning a wedding abroad, implement some of our handy tips to keep you cool in the sun!

Wedding dresses are usually bought at least ten months before the wedding; therefore, the comfort and fit may differ slightly when in the heat. If you are still looking, make sure to factor in breathability and comfort. Look for sleeveless gowns, backless dresses or dresses with spaghetti straps for the best options to stay cool.

Our Madison James collection gowns are a perfect choice for Summer weddings and abroad. These dresses are carefully designed with a signature Cool Touch lining to keep you cool and fresh from the moment you put the dress on until you finally take it off. 

Below is another lightweight gown from our Justin Alexander collection. This dress comes with a removable illusion sleeve jacket which is perfect for throwing on in the evening when the weather gets a little cooler!

Another tip from the team here at Elody Bride is to opt for an updo as this will draw your hair away from areas where sweat can build up.
As well as your hair and dress, an important aspect to factor in on your big day is your choice of makeup. It will need more staying power and an excellent primer to ensure that it stays put. Ask your makeup artist to opt for waterproof eye makeup as it will be sweat proof - and tear proof!



"Girls Just Wanna Have Sun"

If you are planning an outdoor ceremony, why not give your guests a pair of sunnies as a party favour! No one wants to squint through your ceremony so your guests will be glad of them, plus it's a little keepsake of a magical day! 
You can also stash a mini facial mist in your bridal bag for a quick pick-me-up! Not only will this be cooling, but is perfect for keeping your face moisturised and helps your makeup stay fresh throughout the day.
