The good news is, as you get older you usually sweat less.  At least I do.  The bad news is I’m probably infertile:(  And will start having hot flashes soon–more sweat.

Oddly, I was hardly sweaty on my wedding day although I was a mess during my fittings.

Botox is a possibility if you have problems in specific places.  Best to test beforehand, because you don’t want it to change from the bottom of your feet (can be hidden) to your midriff or some thing like that.

Certian Dri did help me, but it also stung like crazy (and I don’t have overly sensitive skin).  Definitely start testing it soon.

Other than that, blotting papers (Clean and Clear work great), fans and hope for a cool day.

I got married in December and I was still sweating a little LOL. I think it helped that I was basically in a tank top up top and had my hair up.

I sweat a ton as well. I keep my pits under control just by using Ban in the green tube. Clinical Strength stuff didn’t make any difference to be except the price is sky high! When I’m hot, I always sweat around my head: forhead, back of head, neck. My hair is always SOAKED. That’s what I hate the most. Wedding day, I will probably opt for a side ponytale. All my hair will be gathered and mostly off my neck, and it should hide the wetness. We are also planning on having our wedding sometime in the colder months and after dark so it’s cooler.

Ah, sorry for the ramblings!

Me too! I sweat a lot. I did the same thing as most PP. I wore the clinical strength secret and wore my hair all up. I wore the high wasted spanx that go almost to the knee as well to help not only with sweating but the dreaded chub rub 🙂 I got married outside in Florida in April. I thought it would be in the 70s, boy was i wrong! I kept lifting my skirt when no one was around and that felt so nice!!! I also had a hanky tucked away in “girls” just incase for sweat, and for tears as well. But I ended up pulling that out for my DH cause he was sweating profusely!! Lots of water too! I sweated so much that I never had to pee when I had my dress on that day….tmi, I know:)

@Georgia Bee: I use to have that Dri stuff. I used it in high school. Too Much Information but my armpits would not stop sweating, any shirt I would wear would be soaked in no time 🙁 It really helped. It did sting and itch a lot but it was totally worth it!

Nope– you shower with it and it lathers this disinfectant— you rinse it off— and you don’t smell bad for days!

@misskittyx: oh wow! Does it help with sweating or just the stink? I feel like I sweat a lot, but don’t really get smelly…well at least I can’t smell it 😉

I don’t know about face sweating but I really found my SPANX to be perfect for soaking up leg sweat. Most people think they will make you warmer but i think they were more effective than just weating underwear and they have the added bonus of smoothing you out which my reception dress needed.

Wow, so many good tips! I’m worried about this, too–I sweat like crazy all the time, especially when I’m talking to people I don’t know very well. When I was doing lectures for a lab, I always had to wear all black so people couldn’t see how much I was sweating. I think I’ll try this Certain Dri stuff and maybe see if I can pick up a surgical sponge… Botox would be too expensive for me.
