If you know your going to think about that on your wedding day, I will buy a bolero/shawl.

Hey sweetie, I have eczema too and know how upsetting it is. I also know that if I use Protopic ointment it goes away. So maybe that would help? Just start a fair while before the wedding as it sorta burns for the first couple of days! I also find mineral make-up is the most useful for coverage without irritation. All the best – just do what makes you comfortable – if that’s covering it up so you can forget about it, do it, but just accept yourself as you are on the day 🙂 He wants to marry all of you, even the patchy bits 😉

First of all, don’t worry about what other people will think. I can almost promise you, you’re going to pick yourself apart way more than anyone looking at you will. Everyone at that wedding loves you and your Fiance, and they aren’t going to judge you. 

That being said, I understand your insecurity. My Fiance has the same issue with excema, and it makes him very self-conscious, because nothing really works to fix it. You could try drinking lots of water or taking a saltwater bath to try and calm things down a bit, but just don’t stress about it, because that may make it worse.

You’re going to be a beautiful bride, and if anyone’s  looking critically at your back, they can shove it.

I don’t think you need to worry.  Its probably one of those things that you focus on, but others will just see you there all beautiful in your dress.

However, if you know it will bug you, check out boleros or shrugs.  Even at your bridal shop it may be more reasonable than you think.  My shop had a perfect little almost-sheer bead-edged bolero jacket that I’m going to wear to hide some issues with my upper arms.  The cost was only $40 and it goes great with my dress. Not a bad price for a wedding accessory!

@Milo:  I don’t know much about eczema, but I have KP. I know for KP, getting a little natural tan (not burnt, mind you) and a quick spray tan usually helps to even out the skin tone and cover up any blotches.

Don’t worry too much! No one will notice litte blemishes and things here and there. Also, remember your photographer will edit out anything noticable in photos.
