    Didn’t you already post about this?  The dress is classic and can be worn for any season.  Consider a faux fur wrap or an elegant satin shawl to drape around your arms and tie behind your back if being cold is a concern.  Lovely dress.

    Your dress is gorgeous! It’s working so beautifully on your frame.

    I think it’s more a matter of your venue. Will you be outdoors to the point that you’ll feel uncomfortable? If you’re indoors for most of the day, I wouldn’t see it being a problem.

    It is also sleeveless and low cut. Regardless of the fabric, I wouldn’t have considered it a “winter” dress.

    I wore a silk mikado dress in August (our summer). It was fine.

    Ah, a bit of sloppy reading on my part.  I think finding a wedding gown that is cool overall is challenging.  Consider access to air conditioning, I guess.

    Yep.  Lol.  I was distracted.  And a bee posted earlier with a very similar dress and opposite season shift so my brain did a switcheroo.  I should not multitask while posting!

    I think it looks lovely on you. Yes, you are going to be warm, however, it seems like your dress too me. Just make sure your bridesmaids keep you hydrated.

    That dress is beautiful on you! If you’re worried you could always buy something a little more light and flowy for the reception but definitely keep this for the ceremony and photos!

    Your dress is beautiful on you. I don’t think you need to change it. Please keep in mind that this is a dress for a one day party – don’t blow money on a new dress when you have one that suits you so well and there’s no telling what the financial landscape will look like in a few weeks or months.

    I voted yes, it won’t work for summer, but I thought it said yes, it will work for summer, so disregard 1 of the yes votes and move it to the no, it’s fine option!

    That dress is gorgeous! However, I’m assuming you’re in Australia, and I’ve experienced Australian summer, too so I understand lol. If you can afford to get another, lighter dress, maybe wear the one you have for the ceremony and photos and then have a different dress for the reception?
