I’m not aware of anything that will make your hair grow back slower, but have you considered something like Nair or Veet?  I can usually get a few days longer than shaving out of those (hair removal creams) and they’re safe for almost everywhere (though they do say not the bikini line unless you purchase that particular formula).

Sadly shaving is my only resource as I have never waxed (pain isn’t worth it) and my hair goes back suuuuper fast, so I have to do it pretty much every other day. I would say shaving is fine. As you said, it gets the job done. But only do it if you’re prepared to do it regularly, or get back to waxing when you can and it shouldn’t make a difference. Also, I think I am exceptionally beastly – a lot of women I know shave their legs and have literally no growth for a week. I’d be like the Amazon rainforest by then.

There are moisturizers that can reduce hair regrowth but it takes months of reapplication instead of just one day before the wedding.  I usually get a few days out of my legs and bikini area, the underarms are the only ones that need it constantly because it gets more blood flow.

It also doesn’t grow back thicker.  It seems thicker because of the blunt edge but it really isn’t.
