Cyprus is a beautiful country with a Mediterranean climate, which means that it can get very hot in the summer. If you're planning a wedding in Cyprus during the summer months, it's important to take steps to cope with the heat. In this article, we will discuss some tips on how to stay cool and comfortable on your wedding day, even in the heat of the sun.
1. Avoid alcohol as this can dehydrate you
Alcohol is a diuretic, which means that it causes your body to lose fluids. This can lead to dehydration, which can make you feel tired, lightheaded, and even sick. If you’re planning on drinking alcohol on your wedding day, be sure to drink plenty of water and other non-alcoholic beverages to stay hydrated.
2. Ask us for our lace parasols to provide shade for your guests
Our lace parasols are a great way to provide shade for your guests on a hot day. They are also elegant and stylish, so they will add a touch of beauty to your wedding. Please speak to your wedding specialist and they will organise these for you.
3. Bring fans with you or order personalised paddle fans from us
Fans are a great way to stay cool on a hot day. You can bring your own fans, or order personalised paddle fans from us. You can personalise your fans with your names, wedding date. Our paddle fans can even double up as having the order of the day on them.
4. Don’t be late as your guests are sitting waiting in the heat
It is important to be on time for your wedding, especially if it is being held outdoors in the summer. Your guests will be sitting in the heat waiting for you, so it is only fair to be on time. If you are running late, we will let your guests know as soon as possible and try and keep them in the shade.
5. Keep the dress code to a lighter style
Summer weddings are a great time to let your guests dress in a more casual style. You can ask them to wear light, airy fabrics and avoid heavy, formal attire. This will help them stay cool and comfortable on a hot day.
6. Wear your hair up
If you have long hair, it is a good idea to wear it up on your wedding day. This will keep it out of your face and neck, and it will also help you stay cool. Our hair stylist has a huge amount of experience with this, so you are in safe hands!
7. Put talcum powder on your body before fitting the dress
Talcum powder can help to keep you dry and comfortable on your wedding day. Apply it to your body before you put on your dress, and you will be less likely to sweat. Talcum powder is also a great way to prevent chafing.
8. Wear natural fabrics and looser fitting clothes
Natural fabrics like cotton and linen are breathable and will help you stay cool on a hot day. Looser fitting clothes will also help you stay comfortable. Avoid synthetic fabrics like polyester, which can trap heat and make you sweat more.
9. Marry later in the day
If you can, try to marry later in the day. This will give the sun a chance to set and the temperature to cool down. At some times during the season, you can even have a sunset wedding, which is a beautiful and romantic way to start your married life.
10. Book a refreshing lemonade table to have between ceremony and reception
A refreshing lemonade table is a great way to keep your guests hydrated and cool on a hot day. You can set up the table between the ceremony and reception, and your guests can help themselves to homemade lemonade and iced water. We can also add mint and fresh lemon slices to your lemonade to make it even more refreshing.
