    Chiffon is typically one of the lighter fabrics. The only fabric I can even think of that may be deemed more appropriate for a beach wedding is maybe charmeuse and even then it would be a close tie. 

    That said, that dress looks more like a shiny organza with a satin top… But I guess if it sayschiffon it must be true??

    I got married in a usually temperate climate on a day that a heat wave came on and it just happened to be 40 degrees (100 Fahrenheit). I say if you love the dress you’ll suck it up and be just fine!

    Chiffon is very light and beachy. I think it’ll be just fine.

    I would pick chiffon over satin for the caribbean anyday! Satin is much heavier.

    What it really comes down to though is how many layers of fabric your dress is, the more layers the warmer it will be regardless of fabric. Go for what you like, just aim for a lighter weight dress 🙂

    Chiffon is lighter than satin!  I think it will work really well.

    GORGEOUS Dress.  Think that the dress fabric is great, perfect for a “summer” weather wedding.

    Cruise Wedding and a lot depends on WHERE you’ll be getting married.

    Even in January, Islands tend to be hot & muggy.  On the ship outside, there is usually a nice breeze,  On the ship inside, and the air conditioning is typicallly cranked up to the max.

    Hope this helps (somewhat),
