I already told him to wear shorts and a cuban shirt instead of a typical grooms attire. We are doing it around sunset so the heat of the day is gone. I guess just make sure we have cold waters. Maybe a cool towel? I just don’t want my poor honey to look sweaty, wet and hot in his pictures. He hates when that happens.

I’d suggest keeping a spray bottle of cool water (maybe even with chipped ice in it) handy, and watch the materials of his clothing. Egyptian cotton breathes well. Does it help if he wears an undershirt – one that wouldn’t show? Or does that make it worse? A cool towel is a great idea.

OMG!! My FH is a sweater as well. I having a sunset wedding in Punta Cana, and thought just to put the grooms men in natural linen pants, with vest white linen shirt and blush ties. Same for groom but with pinstripe blush tie. Ceromony will be 20 minutes in length so Im hoping he is not a big wet mess by the time for pictures…lol

Get rexona clinical protection! Works amazing for my sweaty fiancé!

See if he can get a prescription for Drysol. It can be used on many areas of the body, and you apply it at night (it does itch like crazy though the night you apply).

It took me three times to understand the title of this, gosh I’m slow. I was thinking sweater as in…one you knit. I was very confused!
Can he wear a linen suit? They look nice and dressy, but have that breathable comfort for beach weddings(they also look sexy)

You could look into Sage capsuls. They have proven affects to help with excess persperation and can be bought at any health food store.

My FI is a crazy sweater and Drysol is a godsend!
Also, don’t dress him in gray!

Yeah. An air-conditioned, indoor wedding. Barring that, how about one in November?….

Where are you getting married and what month? I’m a beach wedding photographer, and so location and time of year make a huge difference!

If you’re right on the beach, the breezes coming off the ocean should be quite cool during your ceremony. The parts I would be concerned about is if you’ll be walking around taking photos somewhere other than the beach and then where your reception is held.
We were in Punta Cana for our DW last month and it was HOT! Thankfully ceremony was only 20mins and pics and reception were on the beach.

My SO is as well….his only request has been a winter wedding, so he can wear a tux and not sweat.
Have you looked into FrogToggs or cooling neck scarves? COuld be a great tool to use in between pictures, and even before the ceremony to cool him down.
Peppermint essential oil can also help with lowering body temps, especially if applied to pulse points.

Cmsatx2014: I thought you meant he had a lot of hair and were going to ask us if he should hsave his back or wax it. Ha ha.
Those reusable cooling towels work well. So do cooling towelettes and fans you can hang around your neck and point up at you.

Thanks for all the advice, but wedding is done and over. 🙂 We totally lucked out on the weather. The day before and after the wedding it was hot mid 90’s, scattered thunderstorms and there was barely a breeze. For my ceremony it cooled down into the low 80’s and a beautiful breez with almost clear skys. It was perfect.
