So maybe this has been a topic before…I know of some similar topics.
I’m getting married in August. In humid ol’ Missouri. I sweat like CRAZY! All I have to do is walk a block and I’m sweating when it is above 85.
I know all about Certain Dri, great deodorants and the like…feel free to share those, but what I’m really looking for are other tips on keeping cool.
Any suggestions for keeping cool during pictures? Both our wedding and our reception are inside, but I’m nervous even about walking from the car to the church, etc.
Any tips would be much appreciated — how did you handle it (the heat…taking pictures…getting from one place to another) during your summer wedding?

so my dry trick is pantyliners but as far as keeping cool maybe get a sassy bridal fan and stay hydrated! Also *envionrment please forgive me* you could keep your car running and the ac on and stay in it whenever possible 🙂

I live in Missouri, so I understand! It usually takes quite a bit for me to be hot, but when it happens, I do have some things I do to keep cool. Depending on the setting, AC in the car, stay in the shade, use a battery powered fan (those smaller ones blow just enough to keep me cool without messing my hair), and sip/carry a really cold drink (drinking seems to keep me cool internally and keep my temp down, and carrying something cool that I can hold and put on my legs, neck, etc. works wonders for me externally). I’m interested in hearing others tips so please share hive!

I’m worried about my fiance and his guys in their jackets. EEKS! I heard putting ice cubes on your wrists will cool you off. Wouldn’t hurt to try I guess..

I know someone that has a disorder where she sweats a lot and she has a pill that she takes to calm it down to a normal level. You may check and see if there is something that would be safe for you to take that day and try it out before the big day.

That is a tough and sticky situation! Good luck! Try to stay in the shade during pictures!

Put icepacks/refridgerated fabric on the back of your neck. Cooling off your neck makes the biggest difference in cooling down your body.
