I think it sounds too tight. I can see getting hot but you shouldn’t feel like you have to puke when you’re wearing it.

All wedding dress are hot! Your dress sounds too tight. See if they can let it out.

Will your venue be aircondtioned?  Keep well hydrated with lots of water.  Consider giving your bridesmaid a little fan to use to cool you when you are out of sight of the guests.

You can be bloated from being on your period.

I would suggest the week before and day of making sure you eat lean protein and greens and be SURE to stay hydrated. The dress will stretch out the longer you wear it that day. 

I even had my wedding coordinator suggest a fan under the table as MANY brides get really hot and it can fan right up your dress. Those with hoops actually get cooler faster. Those dresses are a lot of layers!

you also probably didnt dance & prance around at your fitting.  those things change how you feel cinched up.

Another option might be to get a second “reception dress” which would not require alterations.

iamsherlocked:  the same thing happened to my sister only at the bridal shop!  The lady laced her up and started fitting her.  All of the color drained from her face and she almost threw up.  We determined that it was too tight.  I didn’t lace it so tight on her day and she was fine.

Sounds a little tight – absolute worst case you can take five minute breaks to climb out of it every 45 mins or so
