    There is really no good way. Just wash and keep them dry, and then at the wedding wear fancy gloves to match your dress or use makeup on your hand like you will for your face. Spray on stockings in your skin color from sally hansen might work nicely... ^_^

    Check your kittens nails for length and get them trimmed if it's time. Although you can still get scratched, it'll reduce the risk or depth of a wound. To help speed healing, if you can stand it, use iodine on the scratches after washing and drying them. Note that the iodine needs to dry completely before putting your hands near or through anything. If any scratches are particularly bad, you may need to add an antibiotic ointment/cream like Neosporin and cover them loosely with a bandage. Bedtime is a good time for that. Let the scratches "air" during the day. Wishing you all the best and have a good time at the wedding!

    Neosporin. (Or a generic equivalent, available at any drugstore like Walgreen's, CVS, etc) I have that problem, too. My clawed cat can get a little rough when playing with me. I put some Neosporin on the scratches and they're gone in a couple of days.
