I think your dress will be fine for a summer wedding.  My dress has heavy beading and same fabric with the overlay and my wedding is in June.  I am however changing for the reception, but that is only because I found that dress first and I truely love the dress.  Other than that, I would dance away the night in the long dress and not even think twice about it.

I’m also wearing satin in August at 2pm in a church wedding.

I think you’ll be fine. Your main events are indoors, anyway – if it were me, I’d stick with the dress you have, especially if you already love it!

I really don’t understand why you wouldn’t wear it. It doesn’t matter what the season is, in my opinion. If you love the dress, you will feel good wearing it. I don’t think it looks out of place for your wedding at all. I will be wearing a very heavy satin and lace gown in March. Some people might think that it is the wrong look, but I really don’t care. It is my day and I am going to wear the gown that I love on my day. You shouldn’t care what the TV or other people say. Do what you want; not what they want.

August in NYC is warm even in a bathing suit.  Yes, you might be slightly less warm in a dress with a lighter fabric (ex. chiffon), but it won’t make that much of a difference for the one hour you are outside taking pictures.  I definitely think you should keep this dress if you love it.

You could always get a “just in case” reception dress. And change into that if you get to hot. I really think you should wear this gown for your ceremony though.

You’ll be fine.  All dresses are hot and sticky and uncomfy.  Unless you were wearing cotton you would have to deal with this with any dress.  Trust me, the day will go by so fast and you’ll be having so much fun you won’t even notice the dress.

My dress was hot and heavy and I hated it up until my wedding day, but on the wedding day I barely noticed it.  I still had a great time dancing and eating and everything!

Keep the dress you have, it looks gorgeous on you!

@bridepower:

I think regardless of the material you’re going to be hot because it’s summer.

If you love your dress than wear it!!
