If you don’t want to turn red, you could always drink something without alcohol for the toast.  Sparkling cider or the like.

I do – and I’ve realized that red wine is the worst.  Something about sulfides??  I hadn’t really thoght about it for the wedding, so I’m not sure if I’ll worry about it or not.

I found THIS.  I didn’t think of it before – but I was labeled by a Doctor a while back as being allergic to drugs with sulfa in them – hello.  Lightbulb moment.

My girlfriend does!!! And sometimes FI does ( I think he is alergic to beer, but he doesn’t care!)

I’m also cursed with the Asian glow.  Someone once suggested taking a Pepcid AC about a half hour before drinking to prevent the redness.  My FI swears by it and I recently tried it and it really does work!  If your eyes get red when you drink, the Pepcid AC won’t help that but it definitely works against the skin flushing!

My dad is a quarter Filipino and gets so red from drinking. I don’t really think there is an option besides not drinking. Maybe just sip something non-alcoholic for the toasts and then warn your photographer that reception shots of you should be in b&w? 🙂

I can’t wait to try this! I might have to make the FI take me out to night I’ve always wanted to try a margarita!

I do, I’m not asian either.  Alcohol inflames mah body – so I only drink in the dark, or with people I know 😉

I would def. go with cider for the wedding! You could always have a glass of champagne with your new hubby when you leave the reception. 😉

This happens to me, I’m native american.  I find that some things do it more than others

It happens to my brother’s girlfriend who is Japanese.  It’s definitely a sulfate thing.  She swigs a bunch of Mylanta about 45 minutes prior to drinking.  Works for her.  Good luck!

A friend of mine takes milk of magnesia before a night of drinking.
