Hi Florida Bees,
I am getting married at Disney world this December. (So excited). However, we are having our rehersal dinner the night before at Bongos in Downtown Disney. I recently purchased a short white lace dress but I’m wondering if it will be okay for December. I’m so used to it being freezing cold and snowing in Boston. Thanks in advance!
Edit: Its some what taboo to wear white after labor day up North, not sure if its the same in Florida.

Are you worried about weather or fashion?
Either way, so long as you’ve got a coat in case of rain you should be fine– our weathers are pretty mild compared to your area.

I live in Florida, and I have on many occassions worn shorts and tank tops leading up to and even after Christmas. You should be fine 🙂

I live right in that area. You will be completely fine. It might be in the 70’s or 80’s. Just bring a light sweater or jacket depending on the forecast. People here wear like winter coats when it’s in the 60’s! Florida doesn’t follow the “white” rule as much either.

You’ll be in Florida. We wear white year round down here! Along with flip flops!
Just bring a sweater because it tends to get chilly at night.

Oh my goodness, what I would give to live in Florida, dresses and flip flops all year round… sounds like my kind of heaven
Thanks for the feedback, can’t wait to wear my dress!

In Orlando in December, you might want to wear tights and a sweater, but you won’t know what kind of winter Florida is having until it happens (last year was super mild, but the year before was freezing… to a Floridian). And about white after labor day, you’re wearing to celebrate your upcoming wedding– no one will bat an eyelash.

Bring tights and a coat. You’ll be fine.

@sizzi09: I would say wear white all week! You’re only a bride once. Also, you could even wear it for the rehearsal dinner? But I think in Florida, it’s always quite warm, especially if you will be dancing, a short dress should be just fine.

Weatherw-ise, I doubt it will be that cold and your location for the party is fine. Fashion wise, it’s a wedding realted event and also winter so white is perfectly acceptable!

You are probably fine in a short dress, however Floridians love/hate that our weather can be so nice, but UNPREDICTABLE. It can literally be 70-80 one day in December and then 50 the next day. So be sure to have a sweater/options in case there’s a cold front. FL is notorious for 1-day cold fronts, preceeded and followed by warm weather! =o)
