Bridal preparation for Wedding in tropics

Bridal preparation for Wedding in tropics should be paid special attention due to hot climate.

First and the most important step is to think through the image of the bride.

It goes without saying that it should be combined with the wedding color scheme and style overall. You won’t want to put red flowers into your hairstyle and bouquet when all the decor has soft blue details for example.

Your wedding ceremony will take place on the beach with the view of Atlantic ocean or Caribbean sea. It’s insanely beautiful! But while preparing the bride, some special conditions should be considered.

For instance, the sea breeze on the coast. Sometimes it’s a slight breeze, but sometimes it’s quite noticeable. Also there is hot Dominican sun and strong humidity.

So if you planned loose hair or curls for your bridal image, prepare to be disheveled very quickly.

Don’t get upset. Everything can be resolved.

What important here is to buy natural tresses that match the color of your hair and bring them with you to the Dominican Republic. Further, our stylists will do everything else.

This option will guarantee your hairstyle will last the whole day and maybe even night. Here you can also use tresses which will add nice volume to your hairstyle.
