Say “I Don’t” With These 11 Wedding Allergy Tips

Wedding Allergy Tips

The weather is warming up and wedding season is in full swing. There is no better time to get married when the weather is warm, especially if you are planning an outdoor wedding! However, you want your wedding to be memorable, for all of the right reasons. If you are planning on having a wedding outdoors, there are some things you need to consider, such as allergies. Allergies can quickly ruin your big day and negatively affect your wedding party and guests.

Make sure your wedding is memorable for all of the right reasons, and take the steps necessary to allergy-proof your wedding with these simple wedding allergy tips.

1. On the big day, take your allergy medicine before your symptoms start. You don’t want to be miserable first before you take your medicine, so nip it in the bud. Just be aware of any potential side effects that some allergy medications have.

2. If your big day coincides with allergy season, try to plan around it. Either have your wedding indoors, with parts of it held outside or pick a location that isn’t high in allergens (such as the beach!).

3. Opt for flowers that don’t have a strong fragrance, as heavily scented flowers can aggravate allergy symptoms. Roses are classic and are generally a safe bet, as well as crocus, tulips, begonias, carnations, daffodils, geraniums, orchids, snapdragons, and columbines.

4. Go easy on the perfumes and fragrances. Some of your guests may be sensitive to the odors, and you don’t want anyone suffering from a sneezing fit or a pounding headache, so ditch the scents. If your candles are scented, opt for LED candles instead.

5. If you have allergies to chemicals, make sure you do a makeup trial run with your makeup artist before your big day. You don’t want to risk breaking out on your wedding day!

6. On your big day, check out the weather forecast for the local pollen counts. Take the proper precautions if the number is unusually high that day.

7. Schedule important moments, such as wedding photos, for the late morning or mid-afternoon when the pollen counts are at their lowest.

8. Create and carry with you an allergy emergency kit for you and your guests. You never know when you may need it, so it’s best to be prepared. You can even create allergy, self-care baskets to place inside the bathrooms!

9. Getting married outside on a lawn? If so, make sure that the grass is cut at least a day before your wedding. You never want to mow on the same day, as mowing can release pollen into the air.

10. Make sure you are crystal clear about your outdoor wedding to your guests. If they have severe allergies, you want to give them (and yourself) plenty of time to prepare.

11. Have a refuge room that has an air-conditioner running to provide relief for those who are suffering from an allergic flare-up. Air conditioners can filter out pollen and offer relief for allergy sufferers, so make sure you have an area dedicated to this.
