I am really starting to get nervous for my ceremony to the point of panic attacks because I don’t like to be the center of attention, and my nerves are very apparent. I have very fair skin, and when I get nervous I go red (as red as tomato) and very blotchy all over (arms, chest, face etc). Which is making me ever more nervous, as everyone will be able to see it. This happened at my sister’s wedding when I was just the maid of honour and everyone was commenting about skin. I was wondering if there are any brides that have similar situations and what you did to cover up the redness. It does not look very attractive and I have a beautiful strapless dress and I feel like my skin will take my confidence away.

Do you have a makeup artist? I had a bright red sunburned spot on my neck that the makeup artist was able to completely cover. Then I got bit by a mosquito right before I walked down the aisle, so I ended up covered in red splotches anyways. At that point all I could do was laugh it off.
But definitely talk to a makeup artist and see what they can do.

Ok perfect thank you, I will have to try that.

I am the exact same and I was a blotchy as can be during my ceremony (didn’t cry tho!). My photographer is amazing and it didn’t show up in the pro photos at all, and my best friend said that it was cute because that’s just me (it happens ALL the time) and that it showed that I really thought it was a big deal. So try not to worry so much about it.
Having said that, if you are tanned it wont be as apparent. Take some deep breaths before you walk down the aisle (I wish that I would have done a 1st look because it would have calmed me down SO SO much but DH is a bit traditional). And talk to your makeup artist about something to try and cover it (without getting it on your dress!).
And if it does happen, then just remember that it will only last a few minutes and everyone there knows and loves you even red and blotchy.

I’ve used make up in the past (when I was competing in pageants), or if you’re considering a spray tan that should help as well! Maybe do some test runs and put yourself in situations that normally trigger this response?
