Outdoor Wedding Prep
Help! My niece is getting married. I'm so thrilled for her. Her fiance makes her laugh and she's happier than I've ever seen her in her entire life. I'm also super pleased and honored to be part of this special celebration. The wedding will take place in a beautiful plantation-style setting outdoors. The problemwith the outdoors thing is that the temperature is likely to be right around 92 degrees.
I want to dress nicely, but I also want to stay as cool as possible. Okay, so cool is too ambitious. How about not turn into one hot mess before the wedding ceremony is over? Given my state of hormonal fluctuation (read: hot flashes), this is going to take a plan, so I'm calling on the Riders A-TEAM.
Here's what I've got so far:
1.A sleeveless dress.
2. No stockings. I -may- apply some sunless tanner because I shouldn't and won't tan.
3. I purchased a personal fan at CVS and made sure it's in working order. My husband laughed, but I bet he'll be begging me for it.:) (I used the fan tonight at an outdoor concert 99.9 % of the time. I could have sold
it for $50.00)
4. I think I'm going to have to put up my hair, and I'm not particularly skilled at that kind of thing, so I bought a Goody Spin Pin.
5. TMI alert. I googled best deodorant and it's a tie between Secret Flawless Renewal Invisible Solid and Secret Clinical Strength. The latter will prevent a gorilla in rage from perspiring.
Do you think anyone will notice if I drop ice cubes down the front of my dress? Do you think the bride will mind if I bring in an extra fan with an extension cord? Any recommendations for easy, cute updos? Any
I'll draw a name from your posts and send a book!
