You look just as lovely in the 2nd picture as you do in the first – clearly you transcended your sweat! 🙂

Congratulations!

Congratulations Grnmel! Thanks for the advice, I for one, sweat quite a bit & its all from my face! I’ve been like this my whole life! Stangely enough, I never thought about having a Bridesmaid or Best Man carry a napkin or cloth for me to dab my face if the sweat starts to come! I’ve def been worried about sweating because its an outdoor wedding, but it will be the end of October and the weather will be cooler. Now after dancing I know I will have the classic wet hair & face, but it is what it is 🙂

Thanks for the tips & although we girls get a little wet & shiny you prove our pics can still turn out great!

You still look gorgeous! I’m a super sweater…which is exactly why my hair will be up…and why I grew my bangs out.  Otherwise I’d have a wet, spiky mess on my forehead! Thanks for the tips!

I generally never sweat but managed to on the day of my wedding since the wedding was in the morning.  But with TONS of hairspray that wouldn’t make my hair move, I am pretty sure the pictures will turn out well.

Thanks for the tips! Guess it’s a good thing I’m getting married in December.

Thanks for this post, I’m sure there are a lot of sweaty brides out there! I got hot just during my fitting…so I can only imagine what it will be like at my outside ceremony!

Congratulations!  I just went for my first fitting yesterday and was sweating my face off just wearing my dress in an air-conditioned dressing room!  I’ll definitely keep your suggestions in mind for the day-of.  Thanks!

yes, brides to be should DEFINITELY heed your advice on vanity police…

When I was a bridesmaid, my bride friend touched up TOO much, and I vowed to enjoy the wedding…HOWEVER here are some things I wish people would’ve told us!

1)  my veil didn’t look right in most pictures…needed to be fluffed or tangled out of my updo

2)  his hair kept blowing to the center of his forehead so there were big gaps of forehead on either side (it was windy that day)  (I know this is nitpicky, but there are some amazing picks of us, if only his hair was more normal…maybe I can get creative w/ photoshop!)

3)  I had reverse raccoon…I put way too much concealer on my dark undereyes…I didn’t notice it at the time but I did get an airbrush tan that made the color off

 

luckily, all but the veil probably could be photoshopped, but all of it could’ve been easily fixed that day if someone had just told me…maybe they didn’t want to offend me, so give your attendants/photog permission to gently critique  😉

You look beautiful and thanks for the tips! I’ve started to worry about heat. I don’t sweat much but my wedding day is expected to be 90º! And I went for my first dress fitting and was surprised at how warm I was by the time the fitting was done. The dress is heavier than I thought. Its a lot different trying it on in an air conditioned salon. I’m really hoping the alterations will lighten it up. 

Anyway – Congratulations!
