I'm just wondering if anyone else is having this dilemma. I just starting my wedding dress shopping and I"m having a hard time finding dresses that will be suitable for summer in Costa Rica. The dresses are very nice but the fabric's are very heavy. I know I should stick with certain fabrics. We don't plan on having our ceremony until late afternoon but it will still be very hot and very humid. When I'm shopping for my dress should I just go with a dress I love and melt on the day of OR should I stick with lighter fabrics?

melt.....well unless the fabric you love is chiffon....not for me but the dress I pciked is a silklike taffetta so its still lighter than satin but I will be melting even in a bikin in jamaica..good luck!

I guess it partly depends on how long you'll be outside.

I say go for what you Love. You need to feel beautiful in your dress.

I was torn between two dresses. The first one was one that I really loved but it was a ballgown and made of taffeta which will be pretty hot. The second was a lighter more flowy dress. I eventually decided on the first dress as it was the one I loved and I figured Ill be hot in anything anyways!

I actually purchased my dress when I thought I was going to have a wedding at home. I love it so much there is no way I am going to change it. I will most likely be hot, but for the dress I am willing to suffer! Its only going to be for the 20 min ceremony some pictures then cocktail hour and the reception will be inside with air conditioning so I am not too concerned.

Believe it or not, it's possible to find a great compromise! When I first started trying on dresses, I felt the same. But trust me, there are lots out there that are structured and "fancy" without being too heavy. Some dresses that look really big aren't heavy at all, so don't let size be the only consideration. I would suggest to stay away from most Maggie Sotteros, they tend to be heavy. I found that lots of WTOO dresses are very light (I ended up choosing the Dulconee), and some Enzoani (ie Casablanca) and Mikaella as well.
