Yes my dress was super hot.  Luckily my wedding was in October in MN.  But I was still hot sometimes.

My dress is not toooo bad—but I sure did try on a bunch that made me go “owww!”.  Super hot and heavy!  I wish you girls luck!  I HATE being too warm, I get uber cranky.  😉

Haha the title of this thread cracked me up.  Yes, my dress weighs a TON.  I am going to have the muscles of a weightlifter by the morning after my wedding jut because I’m going to get a workout dancing in that dress at my reception!  One of the reasons I love my dress so much is that it’s got such a complicated interior, but the boning, hoop, ten thousand crinolines, and eighteen million yards of silk make it HEEEEAAAAVY.  Thank goodness we’re having a January wedding in New York!

to the OP, I still think you have a lot of courage to wear a heavy dress in mid-August!  I was in Napa last year at the same time of your wedding this year (August 2-7) and was sweating my balls off constantly while outside.  No, it wasn’t as hot as anywhere further south, but I was still feeling the early onset of heatstroke every day in just shorts and a tank!  I think it was a lot less humid than I’m used to, maybe?

Haha oh god.  I’m tired and forgot to censor myself here on the bee.  Fail.  

Alas, you didn’t learn something new today, I’m only sporting a pair when it’s apt for me to say so in the context of a crude metaphor.  Eep.

When we got our dresses, we initially worried that they wouldn’t be warm enough for Massachusetts in October, since mine was strapless and NotFroofy’s was sleeveless.  We thought about looking for a wrap or something for warmth.  However, a friend came by one day to take pictures of us in our dresses.  We discovered that even without sleeves, we were both getting quite warm in all that fabric.

Thanks for the laughs Veganglam and VirginiaMarie! Please don’t censor–It’s much more entertaining this way. 

And Sweatheartdealer, how about one of those misting fans, and some frozen margaritas?  That might do the trick, or at least make it easier to ignore the non-sexy heat.

Well that’s way less exciting than I originally thought….;)  j/k.   Side note: I say that all the time, and sometimes I wonder:  how HOT is ball “hot”?   Then I cringe and thank God that I’m a woman.

hahaha… you guys are too funny 😛

my dress is uber heavy… but that aint going to stop me from hitting that dance floor (and most likely by hitting, I mean falling flat on my face from so much fabric)

@ccranetobe, I have two left feet–and a wife who was wearing her own uber-heavy dress.  It is a miracle that neither of us ended up on the floor that night!
