Do you have a makeup artist?  I had a bright red sunburned spot on my neck that the makeup artist was able to completely cover. Then I got bit by a mosquito right before I walked down the aisle, so I ended up covered in red splotches anyways. At that point all I could do was laugh it off. 

But definitely talk to a makeup artist and see what they can do.

I am the exact same and I was a blotchy as can be during my ceremony (didn’t cry tho!). My photographer is amazing and it didn’t show up in the pro photos at all, and my best friend said that it was cute because that’s just me (it happens ALL the time) and that it showed that I really thought it was a big deal. So try not to worry so much about it.

Having said that, if you are tanned it wont be as apparent. Take some deep breaths before you walk down the aisle (I wish that I would have done a 1st look because it would have calmed me down SO SO much but Darling Husband is a bit traditional). And talk to your makeup artist about something to try and cover it (without getting it on your dress!).

And if it does happen, then just remember that it will only last a few minutes and everyone there knows and loves you even red and blotchy.

I’ve used make up in the past (when I was competing in pageants), or if you’re considering a spray tan that should help as well! Maybe do some test runs and put yourself in situations that normally trigger this response?
