    Hi all, This is my very first post!! My fianc© and I are getting married in Barbados in the spring, (date is in the works, but not official yet) at The Crane Resort. I think I found the dress I want! Which is really exciting!!! So my question is, The dress description says silky taffeta material. Is this a good material for the potential heat? Or do you think this material will be too heavy?? Thanks for all advice!!! :D Christi

    Are you able to try to dress on? Or are you ordering it online? Because if possible I would try on dresses with the same fabric to see how it feels.  My dress i made of taffeta and its not to hot at all, its really light actually.  I was really picky when choosing my dress material as I didn't want anything to hot.  There were a few taffeta dresses I tried on though that were pretty heavy and hot.

        Just try it on.

        Many dresses are made of taffeta and it is reputable with high quality.
