Oh I agree, the phrase sounds nasty too, but that was exactly what they were called.  Wanted to keep it real.

I’m always on the hotter side (heat wise)…I’m a sweaty person, always from my forehead…I’m so worried my hair is going to be stuck to my head!!! My dress isn’t that hot…but I think it’s the fact that there’s no breathing room when your dress goes straight to the floor!  Our wedding is outside in July…I’m praying for a sunny…yet breezy day!

ouch. my final decision between 2 dresses that I loved loved LOVED came down to cancelling out the Pronovias dress because it was too heavy…As a matter of fact, I was told pretty bluntly that I might pass out during our 30 min outdoor ceremony if I do go with it… eee! I am hoping you have a beautiful 70 degree wedding day! 🙂

Oh my gosh!

My dress is so heavy and hot, I get sweaty just trying it on!  Plus… my wedding is in WISCONSIN!  In July!  I swear it is the hottest place on earth come summer.  AND humid.  At least I get to cool off in the convertible on the way to the reception!

mine is too, and kind of itchy on the shoulders 🙁

i had some second thoughts since it is in July. i was hell-bent on NOT having strapless (mostly because almost everyone else has it) and i love the look of my cap-sleeve lace dress…BUT my dress almost looks and feels more like a fall or even winter dress than summer!

i figure by that time, who cares!

HAHA this post is awesome!!!  I also have a very hot dress… and I found that wearing ahoop crinoline underneath it made a HUGE difference, since the air was able to get up and circulate a bit when I was walking or moving.  I’m having an early October wedding, so I’m praying for sunny but cool 🙂  I don’t do well in heat AT ALL!!!!  I either pass out, or become a super crank!!!

I remember my dress being kind of heavy also… which is the only reason why I’m excited about our November wedding date.  I feel like I’m still going to be boiling at the reception though!

Yes, I have a large pick-up ballgown type dress from David’s Bridal that I am going to be wearing in less than 2 weeks.  While it is cooler on top–with a sweetheart-style strapless bodice, the bottom is like a heavy Cinderella-style tent!  I definitely understand your fears as mine is an outdoor wedding also.  I will keep my fingers crossed for a nice 70 degree day for you.  Will you have any ice/coolers?

Mine is a fitted satin ballgown, so it’s warm just having it on inside for like 10 minutes. Now we just have switched our plans to have a desination wedding in Puerto Rico, so now I am worrying about the same thing!!!

Mine is about 1,000 lbs of silk, and it is hot as hell. Or at least the bridal shop was always hot when I had my fittings. I wish I could get a personal cooling system under there.
