I found some Destination Wedding Tips that I thought I would share with you ladies:
Your beautiful Destination Wedding is just around the corner! Remember these essentials:
You will still get a tan when wearing sunscreen. Stay protected from harmful rays by wearing an SPF. Try to limit the amount of sun you see before your wedding day. Burns from the sun are painful, and donâ€™t make for nice looking pictures. Also â€“ nobody wants to go experience heatstroke/sunstroke. Not a fun experience.
Drink plenty of water during your stay! The sun is VERY hot, and alcohol dehydrates you and your skin. Make sure you look and feel fresh by staying hydrated!
Protect your lips
The sun can be harsh on the skin. Especially, your lips. Make sure to keep your lips protected during your stay with an SPF lip balm.
Prep your hair
Anyone having their hair done â€“ make sure to wash it the evening before â€“ unless instructed otherwise. Make sure hair is brushed and dried and ready to go the morning of the big day!
Try not to get your heart set on one specific hair style. Depending on your hair style and texture it may or may not be able to exactly replicated, also keep in mind the climate of your destination. If it is extremely windy â€“ you may not want your hair blowing around, and may opt for a more soft romantic updo or a classic chignon.
Bring any pictures of your makeup and hair ideas for a thorough consultation the day of. For hair styles, bring a number of options, things you like and things you donâ€™t. And styles for hair both up and down.
Clean and moisturize
For those having makeup done â€“ clean, moisturized faces. Donâ€™t forget your SPF!
Make sure you eat a good sized breakfast/and or lunch and have some snacks throughout the day. Fresh fruit, crackers â€“ bring some protein or granola bars from home! Your wedding day will be a long one, you need to stay nourished and hydrated all day.
Donâ€™t roll the dice
Donâ€™t try any new skin or hair products too close to your wedding day in case of a reaction. Stick with your usual routine. Facials should be done at least 3-4 weeks prior to your wedding date, Waxing 4-7 days before.
Remember your touch up kits
Bring a bridal touch up kit with you. Keep items like extra firm hairspray, lip gloss or lipstick, pressed powder, blotting papers, bobby pins, sunscreen, breath mints, water and snacks with you.
Get your beauty sleep
Make sure you get plenty of rest the night before!
Remember: Have Fun!!!!! Try not to think about what could go wrong, and focus on what is going RIGHT! Enjoy your time away with loved ones and savor every minute
