You could do the compromise! Satin is not that hot, especially for the relatively short amount of time that the civil ceremony will actually take. Talk to your girls first and see if they have an opinion, but I would go with whichever you prefer.

I like @mepayne: idea of asking your BMs and see what they think.

I had Dessy in chiffon and these are what they looked like on the day. I think satin may show the ‘real’ colour better perhaps in photos as mine looked more bue where in reality they were more like Tiffany Blue, perhaps speak to your photographer too

I just got a swatch of matte satin (in espresso) for my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, and it looks great! So it’s definitely a good choice if you go that way. I would go with what you really want. I assume the civil ceremony won’t be too long and worse comes to worse they could wear something more casual during that and then switch into the Dessy dresses.

A friend recently had an August wedding on a warm day (not hot) and her sister had big sweat stains on her chiffon dress. So I don’t know if they are all that much cooler?
