Haha nope! I wore a dress with no wrap, got married on a golf course ocean bluff overlooking waves… in December. Thankfully I got super lucky and it wasn’t freezing! It warmed up to the low 60’s for me on that day after 2 solid weeks of rain!

Yes! Kansas in August was not fun. I wore this…

 

And I was still burning up. Our wedding was outside though.

I’m planning to at least to a degree. We’re getting married in January, and while it is Arizona and therefore no snow, I still feel weird getting married in a strapless dress in winter. I plan to wear something with sleeves, whether short or long. I want to be just a tad bit more covered up.

Nope! I wore a giant, poofy, 10lb ball gown for our August 26 outdoor wedding. Luckily it was dry and about 78 degrees out (cooling to a very comfortable 72 in the evening) but I definitely felt the heat. I retreated to the cool, air-conditioned bridal suite twice during the evening to cool off. Wear what you want and make sure the AC is blasting indoors. Good luck!

My husband ditched his tux jacket as soon as we finished with pics after the ceremony; I spent a few minutes cooling off in the bridal suite after the ceremony before joining everyone for the reception. I loved my dress and the slight discomfort was worth it.

Nope. Im getting married in the June florida weather & I went with the gorrrregeous Divina. I dont care if Im hot or whatever. Im going to look amazing and I wasnt willing to give up my dream dress because of the location or weather.

It is definitely affecting my dress decision-making. I would have loved to do a ballgown, but we’re doing a Destination Wedding in Bali so I would probably pass out. So I’m compromising and doing a trumpet gown with a fabulous, fancy train to add some drama. We are also having a Swiss reception though, so maybe I’ll get to don a ballgown then!

@ifheaven:  I’ve decided on the Georgina, after all that! Actually, it all feels a bit serendipitous because a lovely lady (mom of a Georgina bride) got in touch with me on WB to sell her dress, and we are just finalising the details now. A bit nervous about buying such an expensive thing over the Internet, but fingers crossed.

I wavered a little when I saw the VW Leda dress from the spring ’13 collection, it’s incredible. Very similar to the Georgina but with more prominent lacework and kind of a striped, almost chevron-effect train. But for $13K I simply couldn’t justify it (plus my Fiance would butcher me!) and I couldn’t risk waiting on pre-owned just in case one didn’t turn up in time!

The ballgown thing is a bit of a pipe dream…but I really do still love the VW Esther with the lace overlay. If I could get a great deal on it in time, perhaps! 😉 I also loooooved the ML Bouquet (with the petal skirt) but my mum vetoed it.

Yes, I’m getting married in the summer in toronto- hot! I bought a ball gown but it is the lightest one I tried on. Some of them were so heavy, it was uncomfortable trying them on in the salon!

Yes it did, All I kept thinking about when trying on dresses was whether or not i’d be roasting in them. I’m  getting married in Florida In June and I tend to perspire. I went with the Allure 8800 because its light weight and flowy. I probably could survive the heat in a heavier dress but I’d worry about my makeup More.

@peonyinparis:  Yayyy!  I’ve been rooting for the Georgina all along.  Its going to be so gorgeous.

The season definitely influenced my dress choice.  Not so much the fabric choice, but the overall look/feel of my dress was appropriate for Spring.  I do have a soft spot for silk satin ballgowns though.

I sort of did… I wasn’t going to let it stop me from buying a satin gown, but in the end, I feel better having chosen organza!

My wedding was in June, and I knew it was going to be hot.  I let the weather impact it somewhat because I made sure that there wasn’t multiple layers to the dress.  Also, if I started to get hot just by trying it on, I nixed it.  I was still hot as balls though on the day of my wedding, but it wasn’t a big deal.
