    I'm shopping for a wedding dress for my Hawaiian wedding in December... Does anyone have any great ideas? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Do you want a Hawaiian style wedding dress or are you just concerned about the beach and weather?

        ditto on the question above. If you're doing a white dress, the Galina dresses at david's bridal are very nice for a beach wedding.
        It's not so very hot in december in hawaii. the nights can actually get down to 60 degrees. My dress is fron David's Bridal..a very simple halter and barely a train. no tulle, ruffles or anything...just plain satin!

        I also liked the lace dresses...very simple yet nice. too bad it didn't look so nice on me lol!

          I'm just concerned about the beach and weather. I guess something light so I can actually move in it one the beach and something that I won't sweat in because it's either too big or heavy.

            Hey! Where is Old Forge? I am in Philly!!

            Anyway, as for the beach and weather, i think you should go to a bridal shop and try some dresses on - you will be with most dresses as long as they don't have a super long train or a lot of material underneath.

            try browsing through this thread for some ideas...

                They are pretty! I would suggest trying on a lot of different styles when you go-- even if you think you don't like it on the hanger. I found that what looked good on me IRL was totally different than what I had envisioned myself wearing. Take photos & show us when you get back :).
