I don’t think mineral makeup is a good idea for weddings because it will have the same pale effect in pictures (the minerals reflect light which will reflect the flash from cameras).

I don’t like mineral makeup honestly.  It always seemed to wear faster than other foundations on my oily skin.

If you are going to use mineral makeup, stay away from those that contain Mica. Mica reflects light. So, as long as the minerals they use don’t contain Mica, you won’t have to worry about the light casting a glow off of your face. Also, I would try to stay away from mineral makeup which contains talc, many people are allergic to this ingrediant and it could cause skin irritation. And, with any foundation, I recommend a primer applied beforehand. Many makeup lines make mattifying primers which will help to control your oily areas. I’m in love with Shiseido’s Mattifying Veil (well, I’m in love with Shiseido in general), and Chanel makes a a pretty good oil-control gel called Purete Ideal T-mat Shine Control which also works as a primer. Hope that helps!
