Wow, you are lucky!! I would just ask your photographer to touch it up in photo shop…that way you don’t have to worry about makeup rubbing off and whatnot. 

I’m sure it will look fine:)

Try a touch of conceealer to tone down the red a touch, but im sure the photog could photoshop it out. Also any pics that are close up of the ring, you could positions FIs hand over yours so that your thumb is hidden =)

It’ll be totally fine – but I understand your concern with it being so new and not used to it.

The wound might not be 100% healed in a month – putting any kind of makeup on it if it isn’t completely healed could lead to a nasty infection. I’d either photoshop it, have her shoot your ring creatively with it off your hand, or take gorgeous shots where the emphasis isn’t on your ring/hand. The wedding is about the two of you – not the ring, anyway!

I think your best bet would be Photoshop. The photographer who shot our engagement portraits showed me some work he was doing on the wedding photos of a man who had sustained serious burns. The editing work was amazing.

As for make up to cover the scar IRL, Dermablend (available at the cosmetics counter in some major department stores), may be helpful. Vitamin E oil while the scar is healing (but after it has healed sufficiently for doctors to permit you to use it, may also help.)

I’m so sorry that this happened to you but am glad to hear that your hand and all of your digits are still attached after the accident.
