From the proposal to planning, right up to walk down the aisle, there are so many amazing moments involved in a wedding. A lot of those times are the what I call ‘big butterfly’ moments. You know the ones: the heart pounding mixture of excitement, nerves, and joy that gives you those butterflies you can’t shake. Along with those big butterflies often comes the unfortunate side effect of sweat. I love that Simply Stylist introduced me to Dove‘s Amazing Moments campaign that highlights these joyful, exciting, amazing moments that make us sweat. It follows the absolutely adorable story of Louisa, who met and fell in love with her teenage boy band crush, Rob. Louisa has her ‘big butterfly’ moment when she plans a surprise proposal for Rob and uses Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant to make sure everything goes off without a hitch. Watch the video below to see how it goes and see more of their story at Dove! (A warning that it is a bit of a tear jerker!)
So have you had your ‘big butterfly’ moment yet? Did feel them during the proposal? For me, it was right before I walked down the aisle. When you plan a wedding for a year, it comes down to the day, to the last moment before you get to say “I do”, and I was having some definite butterflies! The whole morning was so much fun getting all dolled up with my mother and sister and best friends. It didn’t hit me until we all lined up outside the doors. Suddenly, this was it. THE moment I’d been looking forward to for so long. The emotions of it all hit me like a truck and my sister and best friend tried to keep me calm. I’d like to say that I pulled myself together for the ceremony, but I was a blubbering mess the whole way through. Especially with my husband giving me the sweetest look and squeezing my hands during the vows. But, the plus side? I didn’t have to worry about sweat because I’ve been a loyal user of Dove for years. Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant offers undeniable wetness protection and 1/4 is made up of moisturizers to help care for skin while keeping it dry.

So the moral of the story? Don’t sweat the big moments because the end result is too beautiful, and you have Dove (and a handful of tissues!) to keep you dry.
