Do You Think Your Dress Will Make You Too Hot In The Sun?

Please let me know where you're getting married at and show me your dress. I would so appreciate it! Maybe it would let me know I'm over-reacting just a little bit...

I'm getting married in Montego Bay Jamaica in January (the average temp is said to be around 80 degrees).
I tried on a lot of dresses that were heavy and full of tulle and I was sweating just standing in the stores so I decided I had to go with chiffon. Here's mine:

I got married April 10 in Jamaica this year and it was hot.
When we were on the beach for the ceremony and cocktail hour, it was very breezy and nice, but pretty much everywhere else it was hot and sticky.
That being said, you will be hot whether you are in a bathing suit or a wedding gown. My gown, as you can see, was strapless, and I was really glad I made that choice. it was kind of heavy, but not too bad.
I made sure to keep drinking cold water and frozen drinks, and tried to stay in the shade when I could. You will be so busy being the bride that the heat won't bother you so much. I hate the heat, but that day, I wasn't that hot.
Only you know yourself...you don't want to be weak and cranky on your wedding day, but you do want to be beautiful. You can keep yourself cool enough...I say get the beautiful dress you love and keep some cool towels around to wipe your neck and pulse points.

I think I will probably be hot in my dress... but I have never been "too hot" before because I love the heat. lol If you can't handle the heat then you should definitely keep it in mind though!

While I didn't go totally chiffon, my dress does have the corset back and I'm looking to have it shortened to being mid-calf length to allow for some airflow underneath with the hope that it will help.

I went with a Paloma Blanca 3802.
I am getting Married in Key West in April with a outside ceremony. Temps are usually 80-90's. I thought having a big dress would make me hot, so we decided to keep the ceremony outside later in the day to avoid the extreme heat and make it short and sweet, then have our reception inside with A/C. Then I am only outside for a bit . Plus our reception site has plenty of windows to make it not a stuffy ballroom .
You could always find a shorter dress to change into if you think the heat might get to you, but of course if you are spending a good amount on the dress I wouldnt want to change either . Once you get dresses on you will have a better ideal of what works and what doesn't, I knew instantly I didnt want a satin dress, they were sooo heavy!!! The raw silk is very light and airy
All the best
