Chicago Warm Wedding Tips
Scorching Ideas for Windy City Weddings
Chicago might be the Windy City, but in the summer it’s positively scorching. If your Chicago wedding takes place during the hot summer months, take advantage of the chance to tastefully bare some skin and have some fun. Try these warm weather tips:
- Express summer sensibilities. In Chicago, wedding dresses embody style and high fashion. Embrace the heat and look absolutely cool when you head down the aisle. In the summer, temperatures stay mild and warm. Bare your shoulders with a strapless gown or wear an elegant open-backed gown. Wear strappy summer sandals and avoid heavy fabrics and fur embellishments.
- Prepare your skin. In the months before your wedding in Chicago, get your skin ready. Gently exfoliate with every shower and moisturize your whole body. Keep your legs smooth by waxing or shaving, but don’t change up your hair removal routine just before the wedding. If you need a tan, don’t lay out in the sun. Instead, head to a salon for an artificial tan applied by experts.
- Play with hemlines. In the summer, fashion gets a little edgier and more playful. Dress your bridesmaids in tea-length dresses. Look for airy fabrics and bright colors.
- Beat the heat. Ask your Chicago florist what flowers are in bloom and which are most resistant to heat. Serve a frosty cocktail during your reception, and be sure to offer a virgin alternative.
