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

You can buy the padded inserts to put in your own bag

Buy bulk Velcro strips and glue them in wherever you like. Don't rely in the self adhesive stuff, glue them in yourself.

Theres different sizes by different companies. So you can make your own bag out of anything!

I always have an extra set of black clothes in the trunk for just in case, but i usually wear a polo shirt that's breathable so it hasn't been too bad for me.

A nice hat and a scull cap will work. The hat you can say is to keep the sun off your head for health reasons. Skin cancer is real, and a sunburned head is not good. The scull cap will keep your face dry. I have the same problem.. It sucks.

I ended up going w an Under Armor sweatband. The wife said I looked like a tennis player and the bride said it was a great idea. Everyone was dripping sweat but me! hahaha! Seriously though, it was soaked. The heat here is different than many other places. The humidity just takes it to a whole new level!

Taking that dog off your shoulder would help, must be hard work carrying that around all day  :p

I always run hot and sweat a lot as a consequence, again mainly my head same as you, even during the winter it's rare for me to do up my coat, and I literally own no jumpers/sweaters or whatever Americans call those things. I'm the only person I know who goes skiing in a t shirt. Things that have helped me stay cool;

Short sleeve shirts, baggy sleeves, the sleeves moving around ventilate your arms/pits, keeping your forearms exposed helps a lot in cooling as so many blood vessels run close to the surface. Also, don't tuck it in, the shirt flapping around ventilates the lower back, another hot area.

Ventilated shoes, crocs, running shoes with mesh panels, sandals, that was a big thing for me.

If you're out in the sun, a straw hat, extremely ventilated, but enough shade to make a difference.

Very lightweight trousers, but you've already ID's that one. Shorts would be ideal, but, a step too far at a wedding??

Those short socks that don't even cover your ankle, we call them trainer socks in the UK.

A traditional fold up japanese hand fan, takes up no space, and moves a lot of air, but don't flap it vigourously, that's hard work and heats you up, big lazy waves covering your torso, not your head, much more cooling effect.

And Linen clothing, great for keeping cool, and can look very casual yet smart.

Hit the Gym.

Sorry, hate to sound like a doctor or anything, but I sweat a lot more before I started doing semi regular trips to the gym. Just doing a 30 minute workout, and getting the pumper pumping and the sweat moving two or three times a week makes me far less likely to break a sweat at work now.

P.S. I am of "northern blood" as well, and prefer cold, cool and anything else to "hot"

I work out 3-4 times a week. I just sweat a ton. Was horrible when I was in track and football. I don't get sweat anywhere besides my forehead either. Ive always worn a bandana when working out or doing anything. That doesnt fly at a wedding. The UA headband is working well for weddings though.

If you think where you live is bad then you'd hate South Florida (Miami). I've lived here all my life and I'm used it most of the time. But its still pretty brutal sometimes.

I actually used to live in North Florida on Amelia Island on Fernandina Beach. Northern summers are a different kind of heat. Sure, it is hot more frequently down South; but when it is hot up here, it is bad. The humidity kills you. The summers in Tennessee were bad enough when I lived there. But a hot humid Michigan summer is by far the worst I've experienced. I'd much rather have a 95° day in Florida than a 80° day in Michigan! Now, a summer day in Colorado... THAT is how summer should be! lol

Anyway, clearly some people sweat more than others, regardless of fitness or health. That's just how it is. Luckily, I've only had to deal with it for 2 weddings this year.
