The bright sun, clear skies and little chance of rain make the summer months the popular for weddings. While brides don’t have to contend with the cold, excessive heat can also be a worry.

Murrietta's Well

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.

Apply layers of light makeup instead of thick foundation to reduce shine.

Apply layers of light makeup for a radiant look.

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. To find out more about some of the beautiful wedding venues in the Tri-Valley, check out the Tri-Valley CVB website.

With some advanced planning you will stay cool, look flawless and have a great time with your family and friends.

After engagement season comes bridal fair season.

It can be overwhelming to go to a wedding fair;  however you can structure your visit very efficiently and get out of it at least your admission fee:

1. Wear comfortable shoes and bring only people you want to hang out with for several hours.

2. Have address labels ready to put on all the forms in all the booths that offer you a prize drawing.

3. In order to avoid overflow in your regular INBOX, please create a special email address that is given to vendors with the sole purpose of planning your wedding efficiently   e.g. RomeolovesJulietDec2012@yahoo.com.

4. Think Green, only take material(s) that you really plan to review; use your time wisely to inquire about services you seek, listen to offers that are being made and keep a positive attitude- the vendors are there to help and assist you, really!

5. Have fun, use this day to get into the grove of being the center of attention for a very long time; enjoy the food and drink samples that are being offered, relax your feet during the fashion show and just CARPE DIEM!
