See Vancouver *cough* Raincouver’s weather is highly unpredictable. Consequently, you miss bride-to-be should read up on this blog post full of tangible tips. A rainy wedding day in Vancouver is a high possibility. This blog will ensure you’re fully prepared before your day, rain or shine.
As I sit here now with a warm cup of coffee in my hands, rain splattering down on my windshield, it’s easy to forget those vibrant summer days. It reminds me that weddings held from October-May have a high chance of rain. In thinking of those off-season weddings, its important to speak to what we can do as a team to create and maintain a flawless look, regardless if it’s a humid wet climate. Read on for my top 3 tips!
Grab cute, clear umbrellas from your local dollar store. My fav are at Amazon and are a clear teardrop shape. You and your bridal party/family/friends will want to all match, so make sure to get the right quantity. Between walking to and from locations, and taking pictures outside, it’s important to stay as dry as possible. Bonus, grab a few cute pics with these stylin’ umbrellas!
More than just a setting spray, find a makeup artist who works with sealers such as Blue Marble for heavy duty protection. With so many setting sprays on the market, it can get confusing which ones do what. Look for a setting spray that creates a “film” on top of your makeup to protect against water, or tears. Waterproofing your entire face is important. Speaking of waterproofing, don’t forget to use liner and mascara that is in a water resistant formula.
If your hair is highly subjected to humidity, or it’s raining vertically that day, make sure to pack your hot tools to touch up those locks. After the first look, or during a quick lull of the reception, have one of your maids pull you to the bridal room to give your hair a little spruce. You can also use products provided by Beauty En Route in our touch-up kits!
All weather jokes aside, rain, like any wedding day mishap, can’t be avoided. We encourage you to roll with the punches! When it comes down to the day, it’s better to just embrace what comes. Don’t let anything bring you down! Happy Planning.
