LOL! I love the title of this post!
My sister is delicious to mosquitos, and we haven’t really thought of what we’re going to do. I’ll be interested to see what ppl suggest.

Ha yes. Unfortunately mosquitos will be abundant at our venue. I’m thinking about putting some mosquito repellant in the welcome bags…

I’m totally delicious to mosquitos too, I feel your pain Mrs. Bee!

YES UGHHHH I HATE THIS!  I run hotter (literally) than most people… I swear I am always 1 degree hotter than normal people. Anyway, mosquitoes flock to me.

No advice on the mosquitoes… they don’t seem to be a problem here in Nor Cal (woooot)

This is the only reason we chose not to have an outdoor reception!  Bugs eat me alive, and then I have allergic reactions.  It’s not a good situation, and definitely not something I want to deal with on my wedding day!

YES! I already have bugbites all over! I’m considering making the tea lights citronella candles – but I worry they’ll smell! Tiki torches would be odd, but I’m considering making a perimeter of citronella candles, but I don’t knwo how effective that will be.  I also thought about including bug spray in the bathroom baskets and I’ll be searching for a less smelly one for myself (and those getting ready with me)!

I can only respond due to my experience – YES, yes I AM delicious to mosquitoes *UGH* I’m also semi-allergic (a regular mosquito bite for me is approximately 5" in width…about 1" in height)……..what am I doing to help my guests? I haven’t thought of it just yet! I’m thinking citronella candles!

I just heard on the radio last week that if you eat bananas you will attract more mosquitos.  On the other hand, mosquitos will stay away if you lots of garlic or citrus fruits.  Which won’t really help your guests… but I’m planning on drinking lots of water with lemon slices in the weeks leading up to the wedding.  I usually do and I only get one or two bites per summer.  Guess my flesh is not so sweet??

I’m planning on adding bug spray to the bathroom baskets.  When we have outdoor events for work, I put out a basket with like 10 things of bug spray, and I’m honestly wondering whether one of the standing tables during the cocktail hour should hold a couple of bottles so everyone knows it’s there…

I must have really sweet blood, because I am decimated by them every time I step outside.  Ugh!

we ended up ordering bug spray wipes and having them available at the wedding…unfortunatley some people thought they were wet ones (since we had a clam bake) and ended up stinging their faces…whoops

Ugh, they love me. And I can’t stand it. I am a scratcher, too, so it makes it worse. My pale skin + zexy bug bite marks + skirt suit =  realllll adult looking.

So funny you posted this today I was outside last night and after about 1 minute I had 3 huge welps on me and one was on my forhead.  Then this morning there was one in my house because silly me left the door open for my doggies so I was trying to get my 100 pound lab to catch the mosqito! He kept chasing it around and trying to chomp on it believe me I was cheering him on.  We are getting married outside but hopefully in October in denver the skeeters won’t be too bad!  I am from Texas and the skeeters down there are like a small bird.

I refer to myself as the "all-you-can-eat-mosquito-buffet"…even with mosquito repellent they still manage to find me.
I really want to try that new Off Clip-On to see if it helps at all.
If it does, it’ll be our favors….lol!

I am, but my wife is even more delicious so she absorbs all the hungry mosquitoes for me!  Thoughtful no?
