Boo! As a fellow Floridian, all I can do is lament along with you. Summer absolutely blows!!

Hopefully you can get some meds for those reactions!

Deep breaths and calamine lotion! It’s going to be humid, so make sure you use extra bobby pins and hair spray, oil wipes (they are little blue things, I think Neutrogena makes them) to keep the shiny off your face. Your venue won’t be dark and dingy when filled with your decorations and guests. Also, they make low smell bug spray, if your ceremony or anything is outside it might be worth investing in. Your wedding is going to be beautiful and wonderful!! And even if it isn’t perfect, you will be married to the love of your life in just two days time!!

As another Floridian I concur about the awful humidity right now!! As for the bug bites try covering them with clear nail polish and they will be gone in no time!!! Works for me every time!

The wedding will be just Perfect 🙂

Can you squeeze in a last minute trip to the doctor? When i was in Italy a few years ago, we all got bedbug bites that were pretty awful and went to a doctor, who gave us all some kind of shot (not sure what it was) that reduced the swelling and itching by like, 500%. Maybe it’s cortisone? Or antibiotics? But whatever it was, might be worth a call to your doctor or a visit to urgent care!

@mspartridge:  Get some benadryl or Claritin (I get the generic) and some tea tree oil (the pure stuff)! Pop a pill and dab the oil on your bites with a cotton ball.

I hear you about the heat and humidity and mosquitoes.  I’m a southern girl myself and my BFF got married two years ago.  In Vegas.  In July.  I know we all hear the myth of “dry heat” but 120 degrees is hot no matter how you spin it.  An oven may be dry heat too, but it doesn’t mean I wanna get married in one.

ouch’ it’s been hot way up here in Maine lately. I do not envy the Florida heat.
