Summer is finally here in Hong Kong with its blue skies, abundant sunshine and the occasional massive rain storms. With better rates from five star hotels and your choice of vendors during this quiet period, its no wonder that couples are considering to get married in Hong Kong despite the hot and humid weather. Keep these tips in mind for the perfect summer wedding!
Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your wedding as dehydration can lead to heat exhaustion and heat strokes. Hong Kong’s hot and humid weather can wreak havoc with the best-laid plans from your hair to the poor Groom, sweltering in a dark suit. So, make sure you have a couple of spare shirts for him and stay well hydrated so you don’t wilt, that goes for your flowers too!
Cakes will melt faster than you can say German Chocolate! In the sweltering heat of Hong Kong’s summer months, your cake will not only bake but also turn into a molten lava of a mess if the cake spends even minutes outdoors. Talk to the cake vendor to recommend the right icing and filling and make sure your cake stays in the refrigerated truck until the last possible minute!
Lather on the SPF! Last but not least, sweetheart necklines make for a pretty décolleté, not a pretty tan line. So lather on the SPF, talk to your makeup artist about what works with your skin and stay in the shade. Who likes sporting a sunburn on their wedding day?
