citizenerased14 :  I get tan very easily, so to stay Casper the ghost white, I like Neutrogena Helioplex sunblock. I wear spf 110 every day, which is probably overkill, but even during the hottest days of summer, I don’t get tan lines. I would just reapply it often throughout the day.

I burn very easily, and sunscreens make me sick if I use them too often, so I wear a lot of sun protectant clothing. Check out UPF shirts/jackets on amazon. You can find some pretty cute ones and they aren’t as hot as you’d expect!

maybe something like this?

or this?

ETA: you could also do a cute shawl!

Your best bet is sunscreen and a long-sleeved cotton shirt. The cotton should be breathable, so you shouldn’t overheat. I have a friend who used to give walking tours in NOLA, and she swore by long-sleeved button-down cotton tops and parasols. In your case, be careful to use sunscreen at the neckline and you might want to wear a wide-brimmed sun hat, too.

Wear a really high factor sunscreen, have a coverup for most of the time but if it’s really hot and you don’t want to wear it 100% of the time then mimic your dress shape. If your dress is strapless then it’s super easy, find a cute white bandeau top or dress to wear instead of the tank.

citizenerased14 :  If the outdoors activity doesn’t involve participating in sports, perhaps this could be an option:the dress is loose so it will help you keep cool, with a light color which also helps. Paired with either a pair of sneakers with a cute design or flats, a fun brooch and a floppy hat:

I am so white I don’t tan I just burn. I apply sunscreen (minimum spf 50) everyday whenever the UV index is medium to high,  I reapply times a day usually every two to three hours (I have a solid stick sunscreen I keep in my purse). I seek shade whenever possible, cotton shirts and parasols if shade isnt an option. I use a phone app to know the uv Index and if beach time is involved I only leave the shade of my beach umbrella for the water.  :

Sunscreen wont be enough. It’s too risky. We all know instances where we’ve forgotten a spot and been burnt. I recommend covering up and also a parasol

Surprised no one else mentioned it, but if you can be sure you will tan and not burn, and straplines are all you are worried about, wear a strapless top. Suncream to the max, get someone to help cover every angle, and make sure you aren’t doing anything to active.

I have this same issue, my bachelorette party will be at a lake cabin (that’s all I know lol), and we will spend the majority of the saturday outside by the lake. I am extremely pale and burn very easily, and my bachelorette is the weekend before my wedding as well. 

Because we will all be in swim wear, I just bought a bandeau type swim suit so I can avoid the strap lines and will be covered hear to toe in sunblock all day long. My friends have already said they will bring an egg timer so we will all be reminded to reapply every hour or so, and they said they will make sure to help me cover my shoulders/arms/back really well so I don’t have any weird burn patches when wearing my strapless wedding dress. I’m also planning on getting a large floppy hat to protect my face and neck. I think it will be okay. I know I’m going to be worried about it, so I’m going to be super cautious.
