    Hey Ladies - Im just curious what fabric is your wedding dress. I had orginally wanted Organza b/c I thought it would be lighter/airier than satin, but I tried on a satin dress this weekend and I love it! Do you think it will be to hot/humid for a satin dress in December? I wasnt expecting to try on Satin and did on a whim and now I cant get it out of my head! Would I be crazy to get a Satin dress?
    What do you think?

      I say go with what you love.  I've never been to DR, but from what I have seen in other brides videos, it does seem breezier a bit cooler Dec-Feb than in the summer.


      With that being said, I am getting married at the end of June which is one of the hotter months and my dress is Satin and Organza..and a little heavy.  I am fully aware that I will probably be hot... I have accepted and embraced that because I am absolutely in Love with my dress and can't imagine getting married in anything else.


      this is the dress I got:  http://www.allurebri...4264910D12e0h5F


      Not sure if that helps any... but good luck in your decision ;)

          You have to go with what you love!!!  I always imagined myself in a "princessy" gown and that's exactly what I got.   It's not extremely heavy but I will probably be a little warm (thankfully we're getting married in November so hopefully not too bad!)..I just couldn't imagine myself in another dress.  Just because you doing a destination wedding doesn't mean you have to go with a destination gown :)

            Thank you ladies! Im really considering it! It is a once an a lifetime event! Now - my only issue is that I was planning a Trash The Dress session...do I really want to trash this gorgeous dress!



            This is the dress

              I think that is a BEAUTIFUL dress!


              From what I heard, when you trash the dress you don't really actually trash it.  I don't know how that dress/material would react to water, but that would be the only thing.


              I plan on doing a TTD session with my actual dress as well... although there may be a chance that something will happen to it, I think it's a slim chance... besides, I don't plan on wearing it again... and I have two daughters, but I don't really anticipate them ever wanting to wear it.  So I will enjoy it as much as I can on my wedding day and TTD session ;)  after that it will probably be in a box for pretty much ever....

                I agree. There is no wrong material or dress...it's YOUR day so you get to do and wear whatever you want! :D

                  Definitely go with what you love!!!

                  And as for the trash the dress session, I've done so many of them and the brides even wore the same dresses to their at home receptions and the dresses looked like new.  Just make sure to rinse it well in the shower with tap water and hang to dry (dry clean once you get home).

                  I say.... go with whatever you feel best in! It's your wedding day! 


                  I always told myself that I wanted to be a princess! Just because I was having a destination wedding, didn't mean I would have to wear a destination wedding dress! 


                  I am wearing a dress, just like I would be wearing if I were getting married in Canada... :) 


                  Hope this helps!
