looking for advice: traveling with a giant dress

Recommended Posts

Well, I went to salon #2 this weekend and had MUCH better luck! The dress that is standing out right now is Allure 8365. It felt so perfect!! bunny_4.gif

 

The only thing I am struggling with now is the size. It's HUGE! I was hoping from some advice from you ladies who had a successful beach wedding in a ballroom dress. Would you do it again? Is there any other advice you may have for me? I do have much more time to look, so finding something more travel-friend is an option.

 

Thank goodness I have you ladies to pester with my crazy questions! Thanks!!

 

OH, here's the dress. [sorry couldn't find any of the model standing...grrr!]

honestly it is so huge you will be sweating and have such a hard time moving around.

 

if that is what you really want and you can suck up the uncomfortability then F it, it is your wedding day BUT if you want to be comfy and enjoy the day i say look for a lighter, more travel, beach and heat friendly dress :)

I have to agree with Alyssa and suggest you look for something you like equally as well that's a little lighter. You're going to be so warm in that dress - even in January.

 

It is gorgeous though!!!

I say go for it!!! I like that syle and it's your wedding and it's only one day in your life. Here in Ottawa where I live, it can get really hot in the summer - sometimes just as hot as in mx and brides still wear the big dress here so why not wear it in mexico too?

If the dress felt perfect and it can fit your events and you do not think you will be uncomfortable I also say go for it.

My dress is big and poofy. I bought it when we were still planning our wedding at home so it fit perfect. I thought about buying a lighter, beach-y dress but decided against it, it just wouldn't be me. The dress I have just feels right when I put it on.

 

That being said, the other day I had it on for about 10 minutes (it was about 35 degrees out) and I was sweating like crazy! To combat the sweat, I plan on using Kiehl's deodarant (because it works great and is non irritating) anywhere I'll sweat - the back of my knees, under my boobs, etc. Plus, I have 5 BM's who know how hot the dress is so they're all going to be sure to keep handing me water to drink so I keep cool and don't get dehydrated. Also, our wedding isn't until 5pm so it's not like I'll be in it in the middle of the day.

 

If you love the dress, I say go for it.

I agree that if you love it you should get it. I got a big dress (even tho I went looking for more beachy attire). When I put it on it was perfect and made me feel wonderful. Although it weighs a ton I couldn't pass it up. I can be hot for a day.

Packing your dress in your luggage seems kind of scary that it could possibly not make it. I know I will be guarding mine with my life as a carry on. They can lose my swimsuit and shorts but if they lost my dress...

 

That's my opinion anyways.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
