    I have the perfect solution! It’s called California Baby…It’s an all natural bug spray for kids (adults, too!), no harsh chemicals, no chemical smell (it smells quite lovely actually!). I used it the other night at a family party and it worked great!

    As someone who has had severe allergic reactions to insect bites I feel your pain. 

    I use Avon’s “Skin So Soft” line – body/bath oil, lotion and also the insect repellant wipes, and they work very well and smell pretty good – more like bath products than a typical bug spray smell. 

    Can your venue spray the area with something like “Yard Guard” the day of your wedding to help cut down on the mosquitoes?  Our wedding was held outdoors and we used torches with citronella oil, which helped the bug problem, too.
