    Oh my gosh that is maybe the most gorgeous dress I have seen! Even if it was hot I wouldn't be changing out of that!

      Yes it will depend on when and where you get married as well as time of day. But your dress is incredibly gorgeous! And I had never heard of honey dust so that is a great tip!

        The honey dust or any Lush body powder is the way to go, especially after an application (the night before) of a good cocoa butter type lotion. Skin is gorgeous soft and the powder works amazing as far as keeping you dry and smelling fabulous.

            I loved my dress and I looked great in it and I wouldn't have changed my dress or put on another dress if I were to do it over again. I'd just sweat my ass off again. If you are in love w/ the dress then get it!
            Well put, I would sweat my ass off for the perfect dress too. You wedding dress is special and you want to stay in it as long as possible IMO. I don't agree with wardrobe changes IMO again. The day goes by so fast stay in that dress for as long as you can..until the he hubby rips it off that is

              Lovely dress! As others have said use lots of powder. Also stay hydrated... it's your special day and you spend so much $$$ on the dress- wear it all night. That's what I plan to do. I may even wear the dress to our AHR. lol

                I was told that by removing the crinolin on the dress, that it would provide some releif to the heat. I know from my first wedding I died from the heat due to the crinolin. However you need to find out how much the dress will change if it is removed. Luckily if you do remove the crinolin and dont like it without it - it is an easy fix.
                If you got hot when you tried the dress on, more then likely your going to be really hot in mexico, but you never know
                Good luck and congrats!

                  I think you will be hot. A good rule of thumb is to put the dress on walk around the bridal shop for 30 minutes or so. See if you get hot. Ask the sales lady what temp they keep the shop. Compare it to your destination average for your date.
