It was nearly 100 degrees on my wedding day, with an outdoor ceremony.  Yes, it was hot, but I wasn’t going to be changing out of that dress.  The reception wasn’t as bad, since it had cooled down a bit more, and they did bring in portable AC units since we were in a conservatory room.

From the world of TMI though.  If you find your thighs rub together, definitely invest in one of those sticks that runners use so you don’t get chaffing down there.  It’s HOT and sweaty under that skirt.

ETA I wore this but my poor husband was in head to toe wool 🙂

@SapphireSun:  Is that a Mountie uniform I spy?  My SIL is dating a Mountie!

@EleanorRigby: ‘I guess no one can really tell me for sure what I should do’  No and I wouldn’t want to… But the 2101 (from memory from your other post I commented on) is your dress and you love it so why change out of it. Hope that you don’t get hot, but if so just stand under the A/C for a bit 🙂

We got married on NYE, and one of my biggest regrets was that I decided against a reception dress.

My dress was heavy as hell, my bustle broke, and my straps rubbed my arms so bad I couldn’t lift them above my head.  I know none of that probably applies to you, but I was so uncomfortable 🙁
