We are probably having an outdoor ceremony in August. I sweat more than the average bear (sorry for TMI). I am definitely having a short dress. Cotton and silk are great choices, but I’m having a hard time finding dressses that I love (in my budget) that are made of these materials. What about a lighter, synthetic material, i.e. chiffon? Any suggestions?

I don’t know about what other fabrics will help your dress ‘breathe’ better, but in terms of silk/cotton on a budget: http://www.ariadress.com. Having purchased as a bridesmaid from there, I can vouch for the quality of the silk. If you like simple styles, that might be a place to look. Plus, you get to pick your skirt/top combo so any of the wedding dresses can be made short.
