I am getting married in Xpu-ha MX in Oct. I had a vision of what I wanted-something beachy, flowy, lightweight, chiffon or organza etc. All the dresses I had on my list fit this vision xcept for 2 casablanca dresses that I absolutely loved (1900/1907). The salon I was going to had the 1900 but the 1907 was at their sister store. I knew I could not decide on a dress unless i tried on the 1907 so the owner had it brought to her store for me. It was my favorite going in and the first one I tried on. I knew it was the one…nothing else could even compare to it afterwards. I still wanted to see the other dresses I had on my list before I decided anything. The 2 WTOO dresses I liked were immediately ruled out on first sight; I still have 3 allure dresses that fit my vision but I havent seen them yet. I know that brides wear everything from simple to formal on the beach. The 1907 weighs 10 lbs and I’m concerned about being too hot. I could go look at the allure’s and I’m sure i could go with one of them, but I know even w/o seeing them that I would feel like I would be settling (for the sake of the venue & what I feel is ‘appropriate’ for the beach) and not getting my dream dress.
So do I sacrifice my perfect dress and go with what I ‘feel’ is more appropriate or go with the one I love like no other??

Go with the one you love! Make it work with the feel of your wedding with accessories and hair and make-up.

What do you love about this dress that the others are missing?
Maybe we can help you find another dress to love just as much, but still fit your beach vision!

I say go with what you love. You could even go without a crinoline underneath to cut out some of the fullness so it flows more as you walk. I don’t think it would look out of place on the beach. It isn’t like a huge ballgown covered in tulle and sparkly beading!! Go for it.

I think you should go with the one you love! It’s beautiful and if its “the one”, then its the one! If nothing else compares, then you won’t be completely happy with it.
Although, if you are very concerned, keep trying dresses on that fit your requirements- all that can happen is you find nothing better and you stick with 1907 or you will find one that you like even more.
good luck, let us know what you decide!

My personal view on it is, you only get one shot at this and I think it should your little piece of perfection. When I said something about this at like 5-6 different bridal shops they said they have seen very formal, long trained heavy beaded dresses and upwards on the beaches so that made me look at things a lot different about it.

The dress is gorgeous…but I think you should keep looking. If I were you I’d be really concerned about being uncomfortable. An outdoor wedding in Mexico is going to be really hot, even if it is in October. I run hot, so maybe it’s just me, but I’d just be too concerned with being a sweaty mess on my wedding day.
