Yes, I agree you look great. But I know how hard it is to look at a picture knowing that you weren’t at your best.

This would be a huge challenge for me because I sweat like a MAN — thanks Grnmel for the words of wisdom.  I agree, you looked beautiful before AND after the heat did a number on you. 

I’m so glad you had the wedding of your dreams!

  Oh! If it’s going to be hot there’s this over the counter anti persperent called Certain Dri you can use everywhere pretty much to keep from sweating! Also, if your thighs are good close friends, use baby powder lots of it! Put it between your thighs and any other place that might need it. It will prevent chafing and keep you pretty dry. I for sure plan on doing that next month!

I hate being sweaty! I am so glad we are only do pictures outside and the rest is inside. I think brides forget how warm a lot of these wedding dresses can get. Especially the big poufy ones.

Im like you – a go with the flow, not too concerned kinda girl.  But I could have killed my bridesmaids for not attacking me with a brush or lipstick or anything because looking at the photos, as the night goes on – i turned into a sweat stringy haired mess!  I had a great time and loved it – but seeing the photos made me wish I had taken 2 seconds to brush my hair from time to time! 🙂

Dont worry – its not just you!

maybe some people can use Certain Dri everywhere, but I tried it one time for an August wedding and ended up with a painful rash on my back.  Be careful!

I completely understand – I have the same problem!!  I have to think about it whenever I go clothes shopping.  Despite your wet hair, you look beautiful in both pictures!!

You look beautiful! Thank you for the tips as we also have about a 1/2 mile walk to our ceremony site. It will only be 78-82 degrees but with the dress and all, I’m sure I’ll be warm. I have been so concerned over not getting the dress and shoes dirty that I hadn’t thought about makeup and hair as much yet!
