I think a nice head tie or bandana is more than acceptable in any wedding. Just follow your dress code color to make sure it's matching. You'll be good. ;-)a

I picked up some linen pants a couple of months ago. They are awesomely breathable.

I've had some cheap linen blend shirts that were okay but the real deal makes a big difference.

Not sure about the headband, but you could probably come up with something that doesn't look too outrageous.

I posted a while ago about wearing suspenders to help keep my pants up while shooting, got all sorts of mixed reaction. I picked up a pair and the problem was solved the last 3 weddings with them have been great.

I am also a big guy, I sweat in the middle of winter if I am working just no way around it. For outdoor weddings I have a plain white baseball cap that I wear (I am also bald) so it keeps the sun off my head and helps with the sweat management. Granted I have to replace the hat every other wedding. I was a worried at first about the hat, I just clear it with the brides and have yet to have one not understand. (Side note I only do the hat thing for outdoor weddings). Inside I still just use a golf towel.

I have linen pants and was wondering if they would be ok. Maybe I will try those. I don't see a headband working with those though. I think I could make the headband work with the black dress pants.

If I do decide to try the headband, I would clear it with the B&G first.

You might be able to get a headband past the fashion police if you wear a hat that covers much of it. The hat would also keep sun off and cool your head.

I did linen pants for a while. Ripped 3 or 4 pairs in a season. Never found them to be durable enough.

Loose fitting clothes and tennis shoes is how I show up. I wear a fitbit. Not uncommon to hit 19000 steps at a wedding. (4 miles) Im rarely under 15000 steps so Yeah I get a little damp at times. I have a couple of lens cloths handy that I use all day to wipe the equipment and Viewfinder and You guys al know how I roll with my gear. I keep a couple of of kitchen hand towels in the roller case and it protects the lens as I roll around and I wipe the sweat away as I need to

my roller case is a lifesaver

I had seen you post that case in the past. Not a bad idea! I am also currently researching different cases. Prly check out something like that and am going to grab a waterproof case from Plano (instead of pelican). Not to get off subject but, can you post the link to where you were talking about how you use that case?

For the sweat, I am planning to keep my towel on me and get a plain black bandanna to wear as a headband (pending approval by B&G). I am going to throw a spare towel in there though!

Did you guys see the special on the Pelican case? It is just for camera equipment though, it probably wouldn't be conducive to clothing and other things. If you had good separators, you could double-layer your equipment on 1/2 the case, and use the other side for extraneous items.

It is about 1/2 off, the case is normally $400 or so. Lifetime warranty, etc. Very nice, I have a smaller version of that case. Its a tank, you can lock it up, and it's at least water resistant.

Nice, but how do you keep your gear separated? Did you buy an insert with dividers? If yes what kind? Thanks
