I went to a designer in Toronto who specializes in destination wedding-type dresses (Lowon Pope). No corsets, no heavy layers, just flowy, light dresses. I had my dress designed out of a combo of 2 different dresses so there's no picture but there is no way I could handle a corset in the July heat.

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
Also think about what you are wearing under neath as that could also add to the heat factor. I think I am going to wear a pair of either lace or cotton undies and hopefully no bra...haha

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 still deciding if I want a light sundress, or a fancier cocktail one. I LOVe the feathers!
