I wore a crinoline on my bottom half.  I did end up a bit sweaty but we didn’t start taking pictures until 4 so at night it was a bit cooler and less hot for us.

Honestly, I had five layers, including the crinoline and my legs were always sweaty at my fittings. (I had an indoor air-conditioned wedding though) I’m always warm (when most people are cold-this is why I could never, ever do an outdoor wedding!)  I just knew I would be a sweaty mess and decided not to worry about it…while the photographer was taking pics of me before the ceremony in the suite I started sweating like crazy…legs and under my arms…sweat was pouring down my arms! lol But luckily, my makeup didn’t run and my face wasn’t sweaty. Anyway, I sweated the next 6 hours, but never, ever worried about it..I just enjoyed the ceremony and reception and had a blast. My pics turned out fine. You can’t tell I was sweating…just have powder for your face and don’t worry about your legs! 🙂

I am worried about the heat, too. I am getting married outside in August. I think I will skip the slip, and just have a thong, and cups sewn in. I will be in air conditioning getting ready, so hopefully that will help.

My Fiance is still planning what to wear, because I think he will melt in a suit or tux!

Go out and buy Certain-Dri deoderant.  It is at most drug stores.  You have to get the roll-on kind that you put on at night.  You can still put on your regular deoderant during the day.  Within a week, you will notice a difference.  I used to have problems with excessive underarm perspiration and this was the only thing that worked.

FYI-I love Karma Sutra honey dust!!!  Much nicer than powder.  You might want to give it a try.

oh and also, you can use powder for your legs… and try to find “wicking” (not sure how to spell) underwear.  It pulls moisture away from yoru body.  It is at lots of sporting goods and camping stores like REI.

Im right there with you girl. I also have a ballgown and I’m getting married outside in nasty heat of July. I dont think there is much you can do, other than to park yourself in front of a fan right up until its time to walk down the isle. I also plan on not even putting my dress on until 5 mins before the ceremony (its a easy zip-up, and i can put it on by myself). So maybe this could be a solution for you too.
