    To the Mrs who have already been through their DW, what sunscreen did you use on your wedding day? I'd rather not use my normal suntan-y smelling, kinda sticky sunscreen. Any tips for me?

    P.S. Would be nice if I could type "you" correctly. I hate when I do that.

      I think I just used regular Coppertone SPF 50 sunscreen except of course on my face. I forgot to put sunblock on my face before getting my makeup done and I looked like a lobster face at the end of the day

      This one looks good. It is odorless and hypoallergenic I think:

            On my daughter we used one of the sunscreens made for faces, SPF 30, non oily, and we spread it all over her shoulders, back neck, chest, and face, before we put on the makeup. She protested but she didn't burn :) I think we used the coppertone faces but I will go with Abbies recommendation of the Neutrogena dry touch products. I have some of the faces SPF45 and it is really nice stuff.

              During our entire trip we used Aveeno SPF 70 for faces and didn't burn at all.

                This was what I was thinking of using, so I'm glad it got a good review!

                Thanks for all the replies ladies!

                  My facial moisturiser has SPF 15, so that's all I used. I didn't use any other sunscreen the day of or any days after -- but I used SPF 30 the days prior so I didn't have tan lines.

                    This is a really great question. Often at destination wedidngs the brides it too much sun before there wedding, and lobster looking is not cool. W e recommens a good sunscreen, but also, try getting a bit tanned at home before you leave.

                    Ladies: White strap marks are really easy to get and really hard to hide, so invest in a bikini top that has no straps up top if possible
