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 say go for it...Im putting it in those big plastic bags and shrinking it with the vacuum and making it super small then getting it pressed at the Resort...GOOD LUCK!

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
