Sweating and pictures...

Recommended Posts

So I have looked at several slideshows of all you lovely ladies that have posted ( love them!) and notice that everyone looks super dry and fresh.

 

I am sort of scared that I will be sweating like a maniac on my wedding day. I am still dress hunting so clearly am not looking for heavy material but did you guys have to powder up constantly or something? I see no shiny foreheads. I'm not a huge makeup person so I'm just curious.

 

Thanks for sharing!

i didn't reapply once. i was only sweating during the pictures tho, as it was a sunset ceremony and there was a breeze, and then it was cool during the reception. just remember - photoshop/lightroom can fix anything! (even the bump on my nose that i hate!)

Good question! I am bringing my own makeup artist with me (actually she's coming and doing it as a present to me) so I would assume she'll be right there dabbing and reapplying as we go cheesy.gif

That's a good idea too. Boscia also makes them. I like their skin care line but haven't tried their blotting papers yet. I think they're $10/pack.

I was sweating my ass off and I think you can tell, LOL. They even stopped the ceremony twice to wipe us down. Poor Mike has sweat literally dripping off his nose! I think he teared up during our ceremony but was able to play it off.

 

I used a mineral powder based make up and didn't re-apply. As stated before, photoshop is a wonderful thing. DH's suit was silk, and as people came up to hug him, he got a few spots on the suit. GROSS! But our photog was able to get that out. I also bruise really easily and had a nasty spot on my arm that she took care of.

 

You will have so much going though your mind you won't notice!

I am glad to hear that behind the scenes so to speak you were sweating. :) I sweat when I am walking to the subway and FI makes fun of me cause he's dry as a whistle (is that the saying?). He looks at me like I'm a science project. he actually said to me the other day " I wish I could sweat like you you are probably ridding yourself of toxins all the time." wtf.gif I don't even need to be exerting myself I am just the sweating kind. The glistening kind rather. I don't smell though.

I'm so glad someone posted this question! I've been wondering the exact same thing!!! It's actually been stressing me out because I wonder about my back dripping and hugging everyone after the ceremony. Yuck! I don't think there's any way around it.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
