Pack the Perfect Shoes

Choosing the wrong shoes will affect your comfort, mood, and confidence during your wedding ceremony and reception. For instance, if you are not used to wearing heels, you might struggle to walk down the aisle or strut your stuff on the dance floor with your new husband or wife. 

If this is the case, check out Lace & Favour to take your pick from their elegant selection of wedding shoes, from ivory satin slingback pointed pumps to ivory lace wedding sneakers. A pair of comfortable yet sophisticated shoes will allow you to walk and dance with confidence. Plus, you can focus your attention on the big day without being distracted by tired, aching feet.

Eat Before the Ceremony

On the big day it could be a while before you sit down to eat following the ceremony if you opt for a traditional wedding. The preparation in the morning can also feel hectic but it’s important to remember to fuel your body with a healthy breakfast to leave you feeling ready for the day ahead.

Dress for the Temperature not the Weather

If you are planning to tie the knot in a destination that has a different climate from your home, you may be wondering how to dress for the temperature and still look fabulous on your big day. You want to feel comfortable and confident, but also avoid any wardrobe malfunctions or discomforts. Here are some tips on how to dress for the temperature for a destination wedding:

Do your research 

Before you choose your wedding dress, make sure you know the average temperature, humidity, and precipitation of your destination during the season and time of your wedding.

Pick the right fabric

The fabric of your wedding dress can make a huge difference to how you feel and look. Choose a fabric that is breathable, lightweight, and comfortable for the temperature. Some examples are silk, chiffon, lace, and tulle.

Consider the style and length 

The style and length of your wedding dress can also affect your comfort and mobility. Opt for a style that is flattering, elegant, and suitable for the wedding theme and venue. For example, you can go for a simple A-line dress, a romantic boho dress, or a chic short dress. Avoid styles that are too tight or too loose, as this can affect your comfort and mobility. Also, avoid styles that are too long or too voluminous, as this can make you trip or drag on the floor.

Apply Sunscreen in Sunny Destinations

No bride or groom wants to experience sunburn on their big day, but that’s what could happen if you don’t apply sunscreen to your skin for an outdoor wedding. The blistering sunshine might look beautiful as you exchange vows with your other half, but you might regret avoiding sunscreen when your skin feels burnt and looks red during the reception. Don’t allow a lack of SPF to ruin your wedding photos, and apply sunscreen to protect your skin, style, and comfort on your big day.

Take Emergency Supplies

Every happy couple should have emergency supplies to hand to preserve their impeccable appearance on their big day. For example, a stain remover pen can quickly combat an unfortunate stain or spill, which might catch guests’ attention and ruin your wedding photographs. Also, a travel sewing kit could quickly repair any rips or loose buttons to ensure you look and feel beautiful and sophisticated from beginning to end.

A destination wedding can be a dream come true, but it can also pose some challenges when it comes to looking and feeling comfortable. That’s why it’s important to plan ahead, choose wisely, and prepare well for your destination wedding. We hope this blog has given you some useful tips on how to look and feel comfortable during your destination wedding.
