You’re getting married in October so it will probably be cooler than it is now in August. Are you getting married indoors or outdoors?

Mine is the same, but I’ve been told that it will be better on the day because you can always go outside and secretly give yourself an “airing”, so to speak!

Use coffee filters to dab any sweat off of you. They don’t leave any fibers on your skin the way that tissues do. And yeah, I chose October so it would be nice and cool. It was 82 and sunny. Ugh.

Uhmmm same here. I’m getting married outside in 2 weeks…it’s probably going to be in the 90’s, and I’m pretty sure I am going to be a sweaty mess.

What type of dress are you wearing? If possible get a crinoline slip, those are supposed to help keep you cooler/warmer in your dress by keeping the heavier fabric off/out from your legs and slightly away from your body.

I’ve heard that it is imparative to use baby powder on your inner thighs to help prevent chaffing for this reason!

@primcess:  I was just going to say this!

My dress is very light and simple, but when I put it on after it came in to the shop, my thighs were sweating. Now to be fair, we were inside, on the second floor of the building and they had fans going along with the ac, but we’re getting married outside in August. I’m a little worried that I’m going to be sweating bullets on the day of.

I was super hot when I was trying on my dress inside in the winter/spring.  But my wedding was outside in June so it was much cooler and I didn’t have a lot of problems with sweating on the wedding day.

@Jamieg:  Could it use a hoop skirt?  I tried on one where NOTHING touched my legs underneath.  I can see that being useful!

I scond the hoop skirt suggestion. Even if your dress is slimmer fitting, maybe a small hoop would even help. Just from trying dresses on the ones that didn’t touch my legs were more comfortable.

I agree with the hoop skirt idea as well, I have a crinoline for my dress and when I tried it on I got really hot!  I have heard the hoop skirts are much cooler as it keeps all the material off your legs.  I figure I’ll suffer through the ceremony and pictures but I may take off the mermaid crinoline if it is too hot to dance in!

I wore shorts under my dress as underwear and they went all the way up to my waist for support and they were very comfortable I wasn’t hot at all.
