    I wore a short dress & it was still a little warm, I think it would have been even worse in a long dress. Just depends on what you want for your wedding. Also, if you are closer to the water for your reception you will have a nice breeze.

      like pinayflava i think i will be hot in my dress so i plan to wear my hair all up ( i originally wanted it down as well) but i think if it's all up then it should cool me a lil...if you love love the dress and you think that you can make it threw the day with out getting cranky because of the heat.... i say go for it.

        I feel the same way. I live in Houston where it feels like 125 degrees everyday in the summer. My dress is heavy and tight fitting and Im worried I will be too hot. However, its the dress of my dreams and I paid way too much for it, so Im sticking with it. If I get too hot in Mexico Ill just deal with it. I forgot who mentioned it, but I really like that hand held fan idea. :)

          I went with a short dress. I wanted a long dress but I was getting really pissy in the dressing rooms from being so hot, and that was only in Wisconsin! I would die in Mexico. lol

            I thought my dress was going to be super hot and the day of our wedding was the hottest day there...no breeze and not a cloud in the sky. All I would suggest is that you get cups sewn into your dress...don't wear a bra or anything else. That made mine bearable....it really wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. You don't really notice quite honestly, your so caught up in everything else

                We got married in Scottsdale/Paradise Valley Arizona. It was 105 the day of(yikes right?) and this was my dress...

                I won't lie, I was hot! But really only when we were standing outside for an hour taking family pictures(grr dont even get me started on the photographer who thought that was a good idea...) and I had to tell him I couldn't take anymore outside or I might pass out. And to be completely honest I think my Spanx was what was making me so hot.
                But I wouldn't have worn anything different. The dress was one of my favorite things about the day.
                It's worth it. Try on that dress, it is incredible.

                Also, I know this is going to sound strange but if you find yourself getting really warm, standing in water really helps, so for you ladies having your reception by a pool this could be a cute picture and helpful lol.

                  I just bought my dress yesterday. I am getting married in cuba and I'm also concerned about the heat. The dress I got is heavy, but I love it so much that I can not think of having anything else. I figure it is my one and only big day that I will manage. But the fans and hanging out in the water sounds like a must, plus we are having our ceremony later in the day so I hope that helps

                    I think you should try the dress and see.I think we will all be hot.Have you thought about a parasol to keep the sun away and deffo go for a 5.00 ceremony if you can.No way should you be doing a 2.00-2.30 ceremony
                    The bigger tulle dresses are meant to be kinder in the heat as they dont stick to your legs.Looking at what youve picked i think you have found the perfect dress xxx

                      I'm worried about my dress too, but i plan on getting a lighter and cheaper dress to wear for my reception. I figure I can suffer for an hour and pray for breeze lol.
