A good makeup artist should be able to use airbrush makeup and cover that.

It happens to me too. Also, I blush horribly, even when I’m not embarrassed. Just having people look at me can trigger it. I’ve struggled with it for a long time and I too am worried about it happening on my wedding day. But you know what?  WHO CARES if it does. That’s what keep telling myself. If someone is rude enough to point it out (which has happened to me before) I will say something along the line of ‘I have very sensitive skin’ or ‘yep, I flush easily’. And then move on. It’s rude to point out and nobody’s business anyway!  Chances are nobody will say anything though. I’m also going to get a spray tan and put a bit of my foundation down my neck and chest to make me feel more confident. Good luck, you’re gonna be fine!

SDBride28:  It happens to lots of people. Actresses, TV reporters, singers etc have all been recorded with the same problem. Don’t waste any energy thinking about it.

Talk to your family doctor. A low dose beta blocker (propanolol) can be prescribed for social anxiety with physical symptoms like flushing, tremors, voice shakiness, etc. I used to take it when I was learning certain hands-on technical skills for my job. DH has taken it for stressful public apeaking engangements. I used to turn red and get all jittery just from performance anxiety. Propanolol stops the physical symptoms but does not affect your thinking at all. It’s prescription only so definitely requires speaking with a doc.

I second GrannyPantiesRock, a low dose of propanolol does wonders.  The exact same thing happens to me and after it happened during a job interview my doctor prescribed me a few propanolol for to take on my wedding day and job interviews.  I took it for my wedding and it was amazing.  I didn’t have to worry about it at all!

My daughter had that issue, too. When she was younger and a cute guy talked to her – The Blotch Princess. Funny, but on her wedding day, there was so much going on, she didn’t blotch at all.
