Help! Is this dress to big/heavy??

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies!

 

I bought my dress in March, and had my first fitting this week - it is Brielle by Maggie Sottero (pics below). I'm now starting to freak out a bit about it, worrying that it is too big and heavy for a destination wedding. I'm worried I'll be so hot in it that it will ruin the wedding for me, and also that I will look silly in photos because it is so formal (the groomsmen are wearing linen pants and white linen shirts with sandals, etc). Also, I really want to do a TTD, and don't know whether this dress is appropriate for that. I have NO PROBLEM ruining the dress - that doesn't bother me. But I don't want the photoshoot to be ruined because the dress is too big/heavy/inappropriate. Please help!!! Should I buy a second dress, or is this one okay?? I love it so much but am soooo nervous now...

If you love the dress, go for it! I think no matter what we're all going to be hot in these things, even the shorter, lighter ones, but we're not going to be thinking about the heat much! You could get a second dress for the reception or after-party so you don't stay as hot and can move around better.

 

As far as being too formal- many many many many many destination brides wear much more formal attire than the wedding party. i wouldn't recommend a 7 foot train or anything, but this looks fine!

I love your dress!! As long as you love it, you should keep that one. You set the tone with the dress, it can be as formal or informal as you want. It is your day to be a princess!

You look beautiful, you said you love the dress. Don't second guess yourself. You look happy wearing the dress. You should keep the dress.

First of all you look GREAT in that dress and if you love it you should wear it!! Ive seen destination brides with more "formal/bigger" dresses than the one you have and it totally doesnt look ridiculous. I think you will be so excited that the heat wont be an issue for you. Definitely wear it if you love it!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
