Hair and Make Up Tips

If you’re renting a tent for your wedding, you know you’ll be spending a lot of time outside on your big day!  The last thing you’ll want to worry about is your hair and make-up, so we have a few tricks to keep everything looking picture perfect!

  • Trial Runs are Key!
    Never pass up the opportunity for a trial run of your hair and make up for your wedding- even if it is multiple trials. When doing this, be sure to mention to your stylist that you are renting a tent for your wedding.  They will be able to ensure that your look is comfortable and secure, but can also add some extra pins or spray to ensure that it holds up in warm weather or strong winds (and endless dancing!).
  • Create an Emergency Kit!
    This is an essential behind the scenes item to have on your wedding day- if you’re in a pinch, you’ll be thankful you put this together! This could be one large kit, or you could have each of your bridesmaids hold a few items in their own clutch or wristlet on the day of the wedding.  Stock up on anything and everything you’ll need for that day- from bobby pins to deodorant to band-aids to nail files!  Be sure to include weather related items, such as bug spray, sunblock, or chapstick- your tent wedding will be outside, and you want to make sure you’re comfortable!
  • Find a Primer that is Right for You!
    You know that you’ll have a busy day ahead of you- no matter what time of day your wedding starts, you’ll have to start getting ready early in the morning and you’ll be celebrating late into the night. You want your make up to be picture perfect the entire time, and the best trick to doing so is using a primer.  Primers are used to help your make-up go on smoother and last longer, and are available in a cream, gel, or powder.  Primers come in a variety of formulas and colors, each having a different effect, so you’ll want to make sure you find the best fit for you before your wedding day (this is where make-up trials come in handy!).
  • Set It and Forget It!
    On your wedding day, you’re going to be smiling, laughing, drinking, eating, dancing, and celebrating- it’s a fun-filled, special, yet emotional day! You don’t want your lipstick smudging during dinner, or your mascara running during the toasts.  A setting spray or powder will save your look- you can even keep some in your Emergency Kit if you feel like you may need a little extra support!

Get a Little Extra Shade
If you are having your wedding during the day, then you’ll want to have some coverage from the sun- a lot of make-up has SPF in it to help, but you can get extra shade with a parasol or umbrella to carry with you.  You’ll be cool, safe from sunburns, and won’t have to worry about
