Ball gown too hot for Mexico??
Posted 23 September 2009 - 10:02 PM
I absolutely LOVE ball gowns..and I really want to wear one for my wedding in Mexico. We are planning it for the end of August in the Mayan Riviera. Has anyone had experience with wearing a ball gown style and being too hot. Your opinions and experiences are much appreciated.
Ps, here is the gown I am in love with:

who cares if its going to be too hot..like sheree said you'll be hot no matter what, and you'll be sweating regardless so you may as well do it knowing you're in the dress of your dreams...hopefully we only do this once so be the princess you always hoped to be

Oh, it's is just stunning....and how gorgeous and dramatic it will look against the serene, lush backdrop that is Mexico!
I say if a ball gown is what you want, then you will regret it if you don't have what you truly desire. I also was worried about whether or not I should get a ballgown to wear for my wedding in Jamaica, but I went with my heart and said, "for this gown, I'll deal with it!"
I said "YES!!" to this Sottero & Midgley dress (RSM 1038 ) and think that it'll be worth the heat in the end:
They always say, "Sometimes women have to suffer through a little pain for beauty", and what better day to do what you've gotta do than your wedding day?!
Maybe wear your DREAM DRESS for the ceremony, and then change into something cooler afterward? That way you'd have the best of both worlds!

On a side note - my best friend got married last August here in Ontario and I am telling you, it was HOT...stinking, sweating hot. She wore a ball gown (we all wore floor length in fact) and I cannot imagine that it will be any warmer in Mexico than it was that day. We all had a fabulous time and nobody really worried about the heat (especially after a couple of cocktails!)
Good luck - the dress is beautiful!!

I know this thread is old, but I am so glad I found it. I have been debating about the same thing for weeks. Do I buy this gorgeous dream dress even though it will be sweltering in Jamaica on the day of my wedding? Thank you for the encouragement.
I wonder now with perspective how you feel?

my experience in trying on petticoats in the store was they actually made the dresses cooler by sort of lifting the layers up and away from your legs and putting a nice cool layer of sheer fabric in between. maybe that would help with the heat?
and having your shoulders bare is always a good thing when it comes to heat - I definitely think that would help balance a full skirt.
