Didn’t want to not comment, but no. In fact I’m not even sure I know what Charmeuse is. LOL 😉

My dress was silk charmeuse and I wore it to my destination wedding in Mexico in July. I bought it because it was the lightest feeling dress I tried on out of all the dresses I tried on. 

Yeah, I was hot. It was 35 degrees Celsius outside. Especially because we did pictures outside for 3 hours but I think it was the best option for me.  I wasn’t dying of heat and I think I would have been in some of the other dresses I tried on.

BeachBride2015:  Depens on whether it is silk/natural fibers or is it synthetic and whether it is lined and whether it is lined with synthetic.

 

If it is 100% silk and lined with silk it should be fine – natural fibers are more breathable. I guess silk with acetate/polyester lining is prolly better than 100% poly.

Also If it has lots of layers it might be on the hot side. I guess you also got a feel of different dresses when you tried them on, so I would go with a lighter one. Are youhaving a reception too? You might want to get a lighter reception dress and just wear your big dress for ceremony/photoshoot – that’s what im gonna be doing.

I am getting married in South Africa – on our engagement photoshoot day it was +36C and the wedding day is in the same season next year. I will be wearing a silk dress lined in acetate BUT I will be wearing a petticoat to take away all those layers from my legs!!

 

Hope that helps.

BeachBride2015:  Not a problem! The material was light and I think there were a few layers as well. I never counted but I would guess three under there of a thinner material.  The dress was very light and airy and made for great photos with the sea breeze as well.

BeachBride2015:  it was over 90 degrees when i got married in July in Jamaica!  Im pretty sure anything you wear you will be hot in.  Im not sure what kind of dress you are wearing (a line, sheath…etc) – but the best advice i got was to wear a hoop skirt to keep the dress off my legs!  It definately helped a ton.  But honestly, you will be so caught up in the excitement, you probally wont even notice how hot you are!
