    Hi All,

    getting married in Mexico on the beach in January at 3pm so I'm a little nervous about my dress... I got it for a steal at Filene's Basement during my lunch break!

    It's an Amsales dress that I love but it's rona satin. I'm scared that it might be too heavy for the beach. It's not a big dress (1 layer of crinolin from the knee down), but it is satin.

    If I go for another dress, I know I won't be able to afford something designer like this. So I wonder if it's worth the drop in quality b/c I might be hot...

    Any advice? Did anyone wear a satin dress? I've seen a lot of photos of princess dresses which I would think would be hotter but maybe not if they're silk (?).

    Who knows this will be my first time wearing a wedding gown!!!

            thanks!

            future hubby suggested the same thing. I think he hopes that means he can change too! I'm not opposed to the idea but I figure I only get to wear it once, so I'm going to want to wear it all day. Heck, I want to wear it now!

                  Very pretty!!! Ya, the dress might get a bit toasty, but I think you'll be fine. You can always change if you want to, but my gosh, you'll look stunning in that dress - I wouldn't bother changing!! :)

                      We live in Medford, just a couple of miles from downtown. it's super convenient since Pete is a chef in Back Bay and I work in town too.

                      What about you
