Wow! I'll keep that in mind thanks for the information.

Just as an aside... if you love the look of satin, it is possible... My dress was duchess silk satin which is much lighter than standard satin. I was hot after a while, but I was ok for the ceremony and dinner. Raw silk is also very light and would work. Of course, if you want a TTD in your actual wedding dress, don't go with anything silk. I wore a different dress for TTD.

Thanks Jenn. I found a few dresses in duchess silk satin that I really liked, bu feared they may be too heavy. This really helps, thanks!

My dress was A-line, which I think also helped. I never would've been able to wear a mermaid, but with the big skirt, I was fine. Good luck!

I feel in love with my dress. Unfortunately, I know I will be super hot. Mine is a silk/satin blend. I am only doing my ceremony and a short cocktail reception so I will endure it to have my dream dress.

mine was chiffon (i think) and I was still sweaty. I had to pick up the bottom as we walked across the beach because my legs were hot. I had on a slip & then there was a layer in the dress. It didnt' breath. still I'd wear it again. it wasn't bad.

 

I'm glad I had that flowy layer on top. i love how it photographed with so much movement. it was also pretty in the water.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
