Mother nature is well known for being unpredictable. For this very reason, you'd want to be prepared for just about anything that can happen outside. Here are a couple of helpful tips to prep you (and fellow guests) for anything you may encounter- and, of course, the best case scenario is a perfectly sunny garden wedding!
Some of the most beautiful weddings have outdoor backdrops, lushes gardens are colorful flowers may look pretty but can ruin your experience if you are not properly prepared. If you are prone to a sneeze or two you may want to buy allergy pills to be sure you are not sneezing the whole ceremony and reception. The last thing you want is pictures of you with red eyes!
2. Skip the stilettos!
Outdoor wedding means you may find yourself walking on grass, cobblestone, or a sandy beach. To avoid looking like a baby deer, or a wobbly mess, store a pair of flats in your purse as back up in order to walk around with ease. Espadrilles/wedges can also be a great alternative, because they are safe for the different ground condition, and is still dressy and fashionable, especial for an outdoor wedding!
Outside conditions can change within minutes. In order to be ready for a chilly breeze, bring a shawl or a cardigan, it will also add a little fashion flare to your cute outfit.
Uh-oh, Mr. Sun is hiding today! Although it's not ideal and usually the couple would have a contingency plan for rainy weather - you might need it to get from the car to the tent, or in between tents. Keep an umbrella in your car and you won't be sorry. (last thing you want is your effort put into that killer hairdo going to waste, right? Oh, and have you seen the 10 hottest and easiest diy hairdo this year?)
