In Nebraska it’s H-O-T in the summer, and I’m curious if any other summer brides are worried about overheating in their wedding dress? If so, are you picking something light or short to beat the heat? Or are you going to have your Maid/Matron of Honor on standby with one of those little battery operated fans? ^_^

I’m getting married in late August so it will probably be pretty hot still. We’re on the water so we’ll have some of the breeze from that, but I definitely didn’t let the heat factor influence my dress. Mine isn’t really too bad – strapless, lace, fit and flare. I don’t look good in big ballgowns so that was never even an option. I think (hope!!) I’ll be OK. But yes, I’ll have to have someone on hand with a mini-fan just in case 🙂

Yes, it is super HOT in Nebraska in the summer. Hopefully it won’t be too hot when I get married in June in MN. The heat hasn’t really been too much of a factor in any of my decisions, though.

Savannah in May can be super hot, but I think I can tough it out in my heavy (but beautiful) satin gown! We’re having the ceremony and pictures outdoors (weather permitting), but we’ll be inside for the reception…

I didn’t want a heavy dress anyway, so it worked out both ways. My dress is definitely lighter than most.

I didn’t want a heavy one, but I did want a princess dress-I got that! It’s taffeta. You should really look at getting it if you want a lighter dress…it’s way lighter than satin but has a similar look!

Im a Aug 7,2010 bride too. At first I was worried about the heat but luckily the dress I really want inst to heavy.

I wasn’t inside, but I did the heavy satin dress in 90 degree heat. Honestly, I knew it was hot, but I didn’t really notice too much, since my attention was on other things 🙂

I just have to laugh because a lot of you are from up north, I am getting married in June in central florida. Where right now it is 80 degrees and the average high for June is 89 degrees without humidity index!

We are having our wedding at Bald Head Island, NC in July. It will be rather warm. I just noted as I was trying on dresses, if I was already sweating and I was in an air conditioned store it was probobly not the dress. The fabrics I found best were chiffon, organza, and lace. The fabrics that were horrible were satin, taffeta, and heavy silk. I would tell the bridal consultant do not show me anything in these fabrics. haha Otherwise they will bring you everything taffeta. (or it seems)

I am always feeling cold – I honestly think I would be comfortable in hell with all the fire and whatnot…so summer heat wasn’t a factor that I considered – I still thought it was a bit too cold at the end of the night! 🙂

Nah, never once thought of the heat despite getting married in late June in a church with zero air conditioning. While I was trying dresses on, my consultant tried to convince me to look at organza dresses but it just didn’t jive with it. Followed my heart and got the dress I wanted.

I’m getting married in July, but I’m going to be inside for the mopst part, except maybe for pictures. So for the most part, I don’t really care. I did end up picking out a pretty light weight dress though, but that’s because I loved it.

I’m getting married in late June and I wanted to stay away from really heavy dresses. There was one Casablanca I tried on and really liked, but had to eliminate from my top choices because it was so insanely heavy and had really thick fabric. I mean if that dress had been in my top 2, I don’t know how easy it would have been for me to say no just because of the heat factor.
