Shade makes for a pleasant afternoon wedding at Murrieta's Well in Livermore.

The Tri-Valley can be very warm during the summer, with peak temperatures often flirting with the century mark. Fortunately, there are several things a bride can do to limit the heat’s affect on the big day.

Outdoor weddings are a favorite among many brides and grooms. Pick an outdoor venue that will have shade during the time of your ceremony.

Looking your best in the heat of summer can be a challenge. Consider weather when choosing your hairstyle. The Tri-Valley is typically hot and dry during the summer. Consider applying a leave-in conditioner the week before your big date to make your hair shiny and healthy and consider wearing your hair up.

For the perfect complexion in photos, apply light amounts of makeup in layers. Avoid heavy, thick foundation that will increase the appearance of shine.

Remember your guests will experience the heat, too. Recommend they wear lighter clothing and make sure to have plentiful beverages on hand throughout the event to stay hydrated.

There are many ways to get some relief from the heat without it putting a damper on the day. Many Tri-Valley venues allow weddings to be held in the morning or early evening to avoid the hottest part of the day.
