i’ll be honest- taffeta is hot and sweaty even in the dead of winter, especially if it’s got crinoline layers underneath.

i’d try something in chiffon, or organza maybe? both will give you the light airy feel you’re going for, and be more comfortable in the heat.

I think most people are probably confusing taffeta with polyester taffeta.  Silk taffeta is light weight and airy.  You could have the crinoline removed as the previous bride said.  

It does stain very easily… but you are not wearing it again, are you?  What white/ivory dress isn’t going to get dirty on the beach?  I wouldn’t worry about staining.  I don’t know how you are going to avoid that.  If you are worried about the hem, you could have it hemmed shorter (2-3″ off the ground in the front) to avoid it getting dirty.

If you love your dress, I say- Wear it!  It’s your day.  I think it is beautiful.

i think you accidentally started two threads with the same question.  In another thread I wrote that this version of the dress from WTOO in “silky” taffeta is actually polyester taffeta.  There’s another version in the actual Watters line that is real silk taffeta.  Real silk will breathe much better than polyester.

I remember falling in love with a silk taffeta dress from Amsale.  It was a big dress but it was actually pretty lightweight.
