        Thanks for doing the test run for all of us!!! I was curious how these would work!  Was there a smell that came from them at all? Usually a pain relieving patch will have a menthol smell...  May have to give these a shot! Still really hot in GCM at 530pm :)

        Cold Patch Test

        Ok ladies so I decided to test out the suggestion to wear cold patches under your wedding gown!

        I am working from home today, it's a hot muggy day, so I thought it was a good chance to test!

        I got the patches from Walgreens as suggested on here -> http://www.walgreens...6067944-product

        There a 3 patches which I cut in half, and applied three to each thigh.

        I had no bad reactions, after a little while i forgot they were there, and i could definitely feel the coolness, although not cold and uncomfortable.

        I don't think they will bring HUGE relief but anything that will help will be worth it considering there weren't uncomforable and are cheap.

        Also they don't last super long. The box said up to 4 hours, but by 3 hours the effect was completely gone.

        I plan to put them on right before I leave the hotel room so they will last through the ceremony and cocktail and into some of our photo session. Then when it comes close to reception time I will take them off, in perfect time before the garter has to come off!

                There was a menthol smell, but not very strong, and really was only when I held it up to my nose.

                    I wish!!!! FI and I have had conversations in the past of picking up and moving to an island... we are both on the same page there, if anything this DW has made me want to go even more (pretty sure I'd miss my family tremendously though)!  We did our site check 1 year to the date and it was uber hot at 530pm.
