Destination Wedding Hair

When considering what look to wear in your hair, you want to keep in mind the weather, the ceremony site, and of course the elements that may impact the wear and tear throughout the day.  Often times destination weddings will take place in the great outdoors (after all, you’ve traveled near and far for the setting); but with nature comes wind, dew, heat, and more!  So be prepared and plan in advance what hair style will work not only with your dress and veil (or lack there of) but with the wind and other elements too!

Typically at a beach setting, winds can be strong and unpredictable.  To counteract that, opt for an up do (if you’re hair is down it may blow into your face too frequently and get messy quickly).  When decided on what up do, consider a slightly messier version – so when the wind hits those wispy strands look intentional!

Destination weddings are also great opportunities to incorporate something into your do that reflects your environment.  On beach?  Consider a shell!  In some exotic far off land?  Perhaps a head scarf or beaded wrap befitting the culture.  Getting married in a garden?  Pick flowers (that won’t wilt) or find faux flowers that might be found in your natural surroundings.

And don’t forget to do a trial!  If you’re going on location just before the big day, schedule your trial as soon as you touch down and if you’re planning a location scouting trip, book a trial before you go to make sure your look is oh-so fabulous come day of.
