Would a chiffon dress keep you a little less hot and sticky for a summer wedding than satin would?
I forgot how hot and stuff my venue can get. I was there last night in capri pants and a polyester blouse and YIKES it was hot. I started thinking about how hot it could potentially be on Labor Day sunday and am now freaking out about how uncomfortable I might end up being at my wedding in my big ol’ satin frock. I don’t have an option to buy a second wedding dress so the point is actually moot here, but it got me thinking whether or not a chiffon vs. satin dress would make all that much difference? Would the inner lining negate any breathability of the fabric?

Yes chiffon is a lot cooler than satin which is why I went for a chiffon dress. I knew there was no way I would be able to wear satin when I got married and not die from the heat. Oh and my reception dress which was also chiffon I found at TJ Maxx for $10. Good Luck!

The bigger questions is whether or not your dress is silk satin or poly satin. Silk satin will breath better because it’s a natural fiber. Poly chiffon won’t breathe much better either. I’m not sure it would make much of a difference especially if there are a lot of layers and crinoline involved.
And since you are keeping your dress anyways, don’t get too stressed! I’m sure it will all work out 🙂
