No Sweat


Now that Memorial Day has passed and July 4th is quickly approaching, it is safe to say that we are out of what is considered by most to be prime wedding season. Nevertheless, there are still plenty of us who are having weddings during what is likely to be a hot summer (Or will it be cold? After seeing The Day After Tomorrow I'm all confused about what global warming is doing to the planet.)

Inspired by my recent post about buying a tuxedo, here's a tip from a friend who was nervous about how hot he'd be and how much he'd sweat on his wedding day:

Buy two shirts.

That might be the easiest, most practical advice ever given on this site. Buy two shirts, wear one during the ceremony and then, before you head over to the reception, change into the fresh one. This is especially helpful if you are a big guy or have a tendency to perspire when nervous. It will undoubtedly get sweaty as you dance away the hours with your new bride, but it will buy you some time for the first part of the reception.

That is great advice, but when I told my FI about it, his response was - a better idea is not have to wear a tux! I told him that was not an option (which he of course already knew), so it looks like he is going to settle for 2 shirts. :) Thanks for the idea!!!

We are having an August wedding on the beach, so there are NO tuxes! it won't be as hot in Massachusetts as other places, but the 2 shirt suggestion still sounds good!

Considering how much some guys sweat, I'd think that the 2 shirt idea would work even if you are wearing T-shirts.

Does that mean L can have 2 dresses too?

No, she will nothave two dresses!! She is wearing mine, but did have the sleeves removed, so she won't need two.
