I am the exact same way but If I relax it settles down!

I would suggest to organize your ENTIRE wedding day and give yourself ample time for everything and hopefully that will keep you relaxed!

Personally I am also going to have a glass of wine in the morning – that’ll relax meWink

I have a similar issue, but I sweat on my face A LOT even when it’s not that hot.  Always have.  🙁  When I get like that, I try to concentrate on relaxing and thinking cool. 

I posted about it a while back and I think the best advice I got was:

“Dip some rags in water, wring them out REALLY good and roll them up in the fridge. It’s not like you have makeup on the back of your neck, and the back of your neck and KNEES are two points that if you apply cool things to, immediately cools off your body.”

I hope this helps in some way.  You’re not alone!!

Try certain dry for at night, I use it and no more sweat marks under my arms. Also a little trick is to actually use spray deoderant on other parts of your body. I use Arrid XX and sometimes in the summer spray it on my thighs and it actually helps. I know it’s weird. Maybe try it one day in advance, and than if you like how it works you could try it that day. Also baby powder is my best friend. it’s gentle smelling and is great for a quick touch up on your chest or legs, or wherever else you might have a problem.

I know these are weird suggestions, but i’ve done it to see what would happen and it really works.

I know what you mean…you could get some prescription deodorant that’ll help with the ‘pits!  I find it helps to stand directly under a ceiling fan (or in front of the AC) for a few minutes to cool off initially.

Drysol is available by prescription, I don’t know much about it but I used it for a little while and it worked.

Try to stay in air conditioning as much as you can, but if that doesn’t work do everything you can to de-stress or associate putting your dress on with something really exciting (Duh! that was a dumb comment). But seriously, instead of feeling stressed, try to refocus your energy on being excited.

I’ve heard of getting Botox injected where you sweat the most at (underarms, hands, etc) and it keeps you from sweating. I don’t know anyone personally who has done it, but supposedly it works. Dermatologists offer it. Though I guess that would be a pretty extreme way to go huh? Haha.

I feel your pain though, I sometimes sweat when I am getting ready. I don’t really understand why. I just make sure to give myself breaks to cool off.

Dove’s line of clinical deoderants are really great. I use it twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed. I’ve noticed I get a little warmer when I’m in my dress too, I think it’s a little bit to do with my nerves, but I’m thinking a glass of wine or two 🙂 will help clear that right up. I have a friend also uses baby powder on body parts where she sweats profusely and it works like a charm for her.
