When I got married I lived in Belize (in Feb). There are no wedding store and I was going to get my dress made. However my mom being the same size offered to by my dress for me. I went online to Davidsbridal and sent her a whole bunch of styles that I loved. Well she came back and said they were either not nice or heavy and that she picked out this lightweight dress. 

The dress was light but since it was polyester my legs sweated with it. So I say wear the dress you love (it is beautiful) and enjoy your day. Trust me during the ceremony you will not even notice the heat. It wasn’t until the dinner that I felt the sweat. Then I would just do a few photos of the garter to let some air in my legs LOL. 

Hope this helps

I wore Maggie Sottero’s Barcelona in Dominican Republic, very similar style dress. Yes the dress is super heavy but I wasn’t too hot in it. I say go for the dress you love!

Lace and Satin dress’ do tend to be a bit heavier but are gorgeous!

When I went dress shopping, I remember consultant said organza, taffeta or tulle are less heavy.  Just a thought. This is the dress I tried on that was very light, organza material.

Either way you will be hot no matter what you wear. Maybe they could remove a layer or so under the dress to make it lighter? It doesnt look like a heavy dress from the picture

I wore a dress very similiar for my wedding in Mexico this past May. I was warm but with everything going on I didn’t really notice it too much. I am pretty sure that I would have been warm no matter what kind of dress I bought. I say go for the dress you love!! I wasn’t letting my beach wedding stop me from getting the dress of my dreams 🙂

I haven’t but a friend of mine wore Kendra (superrrr heavy) on the beach in Mexico in July.  She look beautiful, and surprisingly the dress didn’t look too heavy (and she’s super petitie) for a beach wedding.  She wasn’t visibly sweating or anything, so if it is what you love go for it.  You could always get a lighter reception dress?
