I need help with two things, please…
1) scary white legs. Granted, not a lot of people will be seeing my legs during the wedding, but for some of the events leading up to it, I would like to wear shorter dresses. I don’t think I’ve worn shorts in public for YEARS. Today, FI and I were out at a park enjoying the spring day, and I pulled up my pant legs to get some sun and realized just how truly blindingly white my legs are. How can I fix this without the lobster sunburn I fear?
2) Makeup suggestions? I would like to invest in some good makeup for the wedding. Nothing crazy expensive, but I want to look awesome for pictures all night. I’m pretty pale and have some red undertones that I’d like to cover. I love Bareminerals in general, but find I don’t really get the coverage I want with that. What brands have the best photo-ability and the ability to last for long time?

I would try a spray on tan for your legs. That way you can get some color and don’t have to worry about the damaging effects of the sun. There are a lot of gradual tanner lotions available too that give you color.
I would stay away from Bare Minerals for your wedding because the minerals might reflect in your pictures and make you look pale. I have heard good things about Makeup Forever foundation but it isn’t inexpensive.

I am a pale white ghost myself! I just started using Jergens natural glow lotion yesterday. We’ll see if it works here in the next week, they say it takes about a week of continual use to see improvement.
For makeup, I like Smashbox a lot. They’re stuff stays on really well. I also actually like Victoria’s Secret’s cream eyeshadow in the little tubes. It is visible, sparkly and it truly does last all day in the same condition as when you applied it.
