sunscreen for indoor outdoor wedding

i'm getting married around 6PM in april. the wedding is supposed to be outside (that's the plan, if we don't get rain). the reception will follow inside and we have the space till midnight. i'm a really pale person and i wear sunscreen every day, but i want to avoid crazy flashback for the indoor photos. should i skip sunscreen for the day? it'll be late, and i doubt i'll get a bad burn. if i do wear sunscreen, does anyone have a recommendation for something that will give me reduced flashback? thank you. : )

Looking for a substitute for this eye shadow

I have been using Femme Couture hazel eye shadow as a liner, and I am really happy with it. The problem is, I don't think they make it anymore, or it's just ridiculously hard to find if they do. I'd like to find another matte, "khaki" green shadow to replace this. [more inside]

How to best disguise my thinning lady-hair?

Asking for more aesthetic advise, not medical. My dark brown hair is wavy and about 6 inches past my shoulder blades, and falling out at a rapid pace. Is there a cut or color I should get to help make it look less startling? Or just invest in lots of hats? Or maybe there are hair accessories I can buy that sort of cover up the crown? Advice is most appreciated. [more inside]

Who will clone my bag?

I found, several years ago, the perfect cotton canvas cross-body bag. I have loved it, literally, to bits. It's falling apart and I would like to have it reproduced out of rather sturdier canvas so that it holds up to the daily abuse I intend to put it through. [more inside]

Recommend hiking pants available in larger size

I'm a guy whose waist is in the 46" range and I've found that most hiking pants that people have suggested in other posts don't go up that large. Just wondering if anyone can recommend some pants that would work well for hiking that are available in larger sizes. I'm in Ontario, Canada, so I'd prefer something that was available in Canada.

Winter boots that actually grip

With our first real snowfall here in Toronto I've learned that my new winter boots while fitting, being warm and generally nice looking are, in fact, garbage at walking without slipping. I've fallen down twice today and I've not even been outside very long. Can you recommend a women's winter boot that doesn't slip in the snow? [more inside]
