Adventure Wedding Hairstyles

As you head down the rabbit hole of planning an adventure wedding in the country of your choice… There is a good chance you may forget to think about some of the minor details.  Therefore, we would love to bring to your attention one of those items: Adventure Wedding Hairstyles!

What Makes Adventure Wedding Hairstyles Different:

Firstly, there is a major difference in having an indoor versus outdoor wedding ceremony.  For example, that could mean your hair goes from perfect placed to frizzy or wind blown, etc.  Secondly, there is even a different between a local wedding and destination.  Why?  Because you are unfamiliar with the areas weather patterns, humidity, etc.

Therefore, when you choose to have an adventure wedding or elopement, you’re taking it a step further by going out into the elements.  For example, you may encounter any or all of the following types of weather and other conditions:

  • Extreme Wind (hello gale force wedding)
  • Rain (light to heavy)
  • Snow
  • Humidity
  • Extreme Heat
  • Blizzard
  • Swamps
  • Quick Sand

Furthermore, in adding an adventure to your wedding day experience, it is likely you may also be embarking on an activity such as the following:

  • Hiking (long or short)
  • Mountaineering
  • Canyoneering
  • Canoeing
  • Ice Climbing
  • Rappelling
  • Super Jeeping
  • Rock Climbing
  • SUP
  • Crossing rivers by foot.
  • Kayaking
  • Slack-lining
  • Ziplining
  • Glacier Walking

So when you think about comparing indoor versus adventure wedding hairstyles you see they should be very different!

Choosing a Hairstyle for Your Elopement Adventure

Likely, you’ll begin taking into consideration the specific area, state, or country that you’ll be getting married in.  Maybe start by researching what the weather does during that time of year you plan to go.  Then narrow further by the specific location you’ll be saying I do at.

To illustrate, if you plan to be at a waterfall versus a beach or mountain top it could be very different conditions on all three!  For example, waterfalls can be windy and wet.  But the overlapping theme is that you’ll be outside.  Thus, you may want to choose from adventure wedding hairstyles that will have staying power throughout the entire day.  And also bring along materials to touch up like bobby pins, hairspray, and even a comb.
