From Sweaty Groom to Suave Stunner: Tips to Reduce Sweating on Your Wedding Day

As you prepare for your impending marriage celebration, excessive sweating (and odor) can be a significant concern. To help you stay comfortable and confident on this special occasion, this article provides tips to reduce sweating on your wedding day.

From trying out different antiperspirant solutions to choosing the right undergarments, there are several ways to help reduce the impact and appearance of sweat on this important occasion.

In anticipation of marrying the girl of his dreams, Scott's mind was consumed by a daunting concern—sweating like a beast on his wedding day. Fearing the perspiration stains would mar the perfect moment, he searched for a way to keep his nerves (and sweat) at bay, praying for a dry and unforgettable exchange of vows.

If you sweat like Scott, continue reading for tips about avoiding visible sweat marks and being prepared to address any sweat break-throughs. By following these tips, not only will you feel at ease but also look picture-perfect as you say "I do."

Explore Antiperspirant Options (Ahead of Time)

One of the best ways to stop excessive sweating is to use aluminum-based antiperspirants. Most are designed for underarm use but are also safe to use on other parts of the body such as feet, back, and chest. If you are concerned about facial or hand sweating, there are antiperspirants formulated to use on faces and hands.

If you expect to use a new product, try it out weeks in advance to make sure it is effective and safe for your skin type. Look for products labeled as "clinical strength" or "extra strength" for better effectiveness. These products are available with the maximum amount of aluminum without requiring a prescription.

Then, apply it the night before and on the morning of your wedding day. For the antiperspirant to make direct contact with your skin, consider shaving or trimming your armpit hair beforehand.

Choose the Right Clothing & Undergarments

Many grooms are beholden to their brides’ wishes when it comes to selecting their wedding day attire. While your bride may have a color scheme and style in mind, be sure to look for dress shirts and slacks that are made from breathable fabric (like cotton or linen).

Breathable fabrics allow air to circulate, cooling you down and allowing moisture the opportunity to evaporate. Or look for dress shirts that are made with performance technology that wicks away moisture.

Regardless of what your wedding day attire looks like, protect your clothes with Ejis sweat proof undergarments. Our sweat proof undershirts and boxer briefs are designed to stop sweat marks from reaching your clothing with X2 ConfidenceCore™ waterproof fabric in all the right places. The fabric is also infused with real silver to keep body odor at bay.

Our best-selling micro modal sweat proof undershirts are available in three colors (white, black and grey) and three styles: crew neck (for dress shirts with ties); v-neck (for dress shirts with one button undone) and deep v (for dress shirts with more than one button undone).

By stopping sweat before it reaches your clothing, you (and your bride) can be assured that sweat won’t creep into your cherished wedding photos or videos.

Keep Yourself Cool & Hydrated

While you can’t control Mother Nature and the weather, you can be prepared to regulate your body temperature with these tips.

  • Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can regulate your body temperature and minimize excessive sweating. If at all possible, avoid consuming alcohol or caffeinated beverages before the ceremony, as they can dehydrate you and worsen your sweating.
  • Cool down your environment: Keep the temperature in the dressing room or wherever you're getting ready cool. Turn on fans or air conditioning to create a comfortable atmosphere. Even if your wedding is outside or you can’t control the room’s airflow, you can carry a personal-size motorized fan to keep you cool right up until the procession. (Seriously, some are as small as a smart phone.)
  • Practice relaxation techniques: Incorporate relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing exercises or meditation, to help reduce stress and anxiety. Nervousness can trigger sweating, so staying calm can help manage perspiration.

Be Prepared Just in Case

There’s no harm in keeping a “sweat kit” available so you have what you need… just in case. You may want to freshen up after the ceremony and before the reception. Here are some suggested products to store in your go bag:

  • Extra undergarments: Depending on the heat and humidity of your location, you may want to pack an extra sweat proof undershirt or pair of sweat proof boxer briefs if you anticipate sweating profusely.
  • Handkerchief or microfiber towel: Carry a small handkerchief or towel with you to wipe away sweat discreetly. Gently dab the affected areas when needed, but avoid rubbing vigorously, as it may increase sweating.
  • Antibacterial wipes: Single-use wipes are great to have available to swipe over your face or hands to freshen up. You can even keep one in your pocket.
  • Travel size talcum powder: Apply talcum powder or cornstarch on areas prone to sweating, such as your underarms, chest, and back. These powders help absorb moisture and keep your skin dry.

Don't let sweat ruin your wedding day. Be prepared by following these tips to stay cool and confident. And most importantly, focus on enjoying the moment and celebrating your special day with your loved ones.
