    Ok this is a super random question but, the ladies that are having a summer wedding will you be wearing sun cream on you day. I think I will be as I burn super easily but most if them are sticky and I really don't want to get any on my dress. What do u think? Can u ladies recommend a sun cream that's not greasy or sticky? Thanks! X

    you should apply sun cream at last an hour before you get dressed .. that way it will soak in , have you thought about getting a parasol/umbrella that fit with you colours to shield you ?

    I would apply sun cream on your body a good hour before the makeup is being done. Speak to your makup artist and ask if any of their makeup contains an SPF to offer you some protection for your face. As Lala also advises, have a think about maybe a lacy or oriental parasol which will keep the rays off of your head and shoulders. This also may make a great favour gift to female guests if you can get them in bulk for a good price.

    Considering how much makeup I will be wearing on my face I would be impressed if the sun managed to penetrate it lol

    Bethan, this was my worst nightmare as well. If I went out in the sunshine, it was always in a strapless top. Even now after the wedding that is what I wear. I hate strap marks.

    Thank you ladies! I hadn't thought of asking my make up artist about what make up has SPF in it. A parasol is a good idea but I think it will look a bit out if place at my wedding as we having got any thing vintage in our theam at all. Glitter fairy I never even thought of strap marks!! I will defiantly be thinking about that now lol! X

    Doesn't have to be vintage. Oriental ones can appear quite modern.

    I have picked out a foundation that contains the suncream but not really thought of my arms as i often forget to put on suncream but will have to pack one to use on the kids (good thinking clair)

    I had been thinking about it but I get married on a bank holiday weekend so it'll probably rain! :P

    I'm also worried about it staining but if you put it on an hour before it should be well soaked in.

    i hope the weather is that good that i have to!,its so difficult to tell what its gonna be like its only 10 weeks away, and the weather here is only just starting to brighten up but its still cold, it feels like the sun is too far away to reach, lets keep fingers crossed, if i was getting married in guaranteed heat,i would protect myself and use a parasol as others have said xx

    We recently went on holiday and used that p20 stuff ( think that's what its called) and you only need to put it on once a day. And it worked great defo recommend it but I would put it on while in underwear let it soak in for 15mins then get dressed otherwise it goes on clothes oily but if you let it soak in it doesn't x

    I love p20 but like you mentioned mrsc2bee it can be oily and also be careful as can turn white items of clothing yellow ....

    Apparently the zinc in SPF can reflect the flash on camera's and leave you looking washed out, so outside is generally fine as no flash is needed. But is when you go inside and they need a flash.

    Yer I noticed it turned some things white but that's when I was putting the suncream on when they were already dressed, soon learnt to do it 15min before getting them dressed haha. Defo trial out the p20 with white clothes ( 15-20min before getting dressed) and see how u find it x
