- Wedding: November 2014
Hi bees! My Fiance and I have been planning the wedding before we got engaged, he pretty much told me it was up to me, he just wanted to participate in the food tasting and cake and that is it. I had seen my dream dress a long time ago on SYTTD, the lazaro 3819, and bought it as a used reception dress in my size. It didnt fit when I first got it. I planned the entire wedding in a month around this dress. Just needed to set a date and sign contracts but oretty much all set.
My Fiance one week ago decided that he wanted a beach wedding (We live in Costa Rica so its completely possible, a 3 hour drive away). The ceremony would be on a cliff overlooking the ocean on the property that we (now) plan on buying from his parents and one day live on. We already have prices from a great resort that is all inclusive (aka saves me tons of stress) and is really pretty and its in the budget.
I figure I wasnt going to fit into my dress anyways (there was no extra fabric to let it out) , and the plans werent set in stone so I could just get another dress. I pulled it out today and for fun tried it on, and it fit! Perfectly!!!! Zipped up and looks amazing, my mom cried, I jumped up and down in joy, it is “the one”. Problem is, we realized really quickly, the dress is HOT. the inner lining is heavy and seriously hot. Getting married at the location where we plan on spending the rest of our lives together is really important to us, but I dont want to change my dress. I really dont want a reception dress bevause I love mine so much.
Is there any way to make it fresher? Maybe taking out the tulle underneath and putting in a hoop? Or changing the inner lining? Has anyone worn a non beach wedding dress to the beach wedding?
