    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!)

        YOur photog will probablly just photoshop the shiny parts out. Its pretty easy to do! I wouldnt be too concerned about it!

          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

            How about blotting papers to help with the shine control? I like the ones by Shisedo. Sephora: Shiseido Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Paper: Oil/Blemish Control

              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." 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.
