    That dress is beautiful!

      I also went the more traditional route, sadly the beachy dresses just weren't suiting me. I absolutely love my dress, it's me in everyway, and was in my budget. Hopefully I survive the heat, and they allow it to come with me on the plane as it's kinda large. We're going to the airport early, so I can pour on the charm. :)

        I also went the traditional route. I chose a Pronovias as well, I love their dresses!

            I thought I wanted a simple white dress but I think I'm going all out!! Just as long as it's not too heavy.

            BRIDE + GROOM + 60 GUESTS!!

              I am going with a traditional style dress. I didn't feel like a bride in the beachy dresses.

                Hi! So, the dress is satin with a lace overlay. I don't know how breathable it'll be, but it is really light weight. There's no tulle/crinoline underneath so it's not scratchy. It's really pretty comfy & has a short train and I'm thinking of removing the satin in the train so it'll just be lace. Maybe go try it on to see if you like it?

                I love seeing all of your dresses, girls!! They're all so gorgeous!

                  You ladies have picked some beautiful dresses. There is so much to do and too little time.

                    I have been wondering the same thing!? One of my sisters had a DW and wore a traditional dress. One of my bridesmaids and sisters thinks it could be super hot to wear a traditional dress. I have tried some dresses that are lighter, more beachy style and to me it feels like an everyday summer dress, not as weddingish...for those who have got married in a traditional dress is it ridiculously hot?

                      My dress is traditional as well, but its not as extravagant as I would have had it if my wedding were at home! Some embellishments on the bust and the empire waist style, but pretty straight otherwise! It's not very heavy, but it LOOKS heavier than what it is! :) When I find a picture I will post it in the forum "show your wedding dress!"
