      You pointed out something that I felt when trying on the destination wedding dresses. I didn't feel like a bride as much compared to the more elaborate dresses.

        Go for the dress you love!

        If big and poufy is what you're leaning towards, then you could always wear a hoop crinoline to get some air circulation. Besides, you gotta love the contrast of the casual beach mixed in with such a formal dress.

        On the other side of the mix, brides who pick soft and flowy gowns worry about the wind constantly billowing their skirt around.

            My dress wasn't exactly big & poofy but it wasn't really a dress fit for the beach either.
            I agree with everyone else, go for what you love, no matter whether its big & poofy or not.
            You can always wear that dress for the ceremony & change into something lighter or more airy for your reception, which is what I did!

              This is a great topic! Like others have said I guess you'll know when you try it on and you know it's "the one".......

              I myself know I can't have a whole lot of fabric, since I'm petite, and I've come across quite a few dresses I like online, but the verdict will be easier once I start trying some on.

                I know a veil will make me feel like a bride, but I just am torn on the type of dress I really want! Im too indecisive! LOL

                  LOL- i was the same as you- i hate decisions ans once i started looking into it there were just too many to choose from! I opted for the non poofy dress- i tried on some of the more formal gowns in the store and started sweating my ass off! no way! LOL
                  Get the dress you fall in love with- dont' worry it's out there!

                  here's a pic of mine it's from David's Bridal - i love it!
                  I go for my second fitting next week!!!

                  OK i don't know how to attached the pic so here is the link:

                    I haven't yet had my DW yet, but I did buy my dress. I didn't think I was the big princess dress type of person, and I know that if I wore a big dress and was hot, I would be irritated and not have a great day. So my personal choice was a compromise and I got a wedding dress that was short! But it is still very much a wedding dress. I know I will just be more comfortable. And after spending that much I want to wear it the whole night, not change after the 15 minute ceremony or whatever.

                    I think it's a matter of what makes you feel comfortable!
