Satin in the Caribbean? Will I roast?

Recommended Posts

I currently own a Maggie Sottero Bianca.  The dress is absolutely gorgeous.  It is the softest satin I have ever felt.  I bought this dress when I was getting married in Canada in the Fall!!!  Now, we've changed our minds and are getting married in Jamaica in May.  I have put a deposit on another dress which is lace, an Alfred Angelo 850 from the Saphire collection,  only because I am so afraid of overheating and would rather be comfortable on my wedding day.  What material was your dress for your marriage under the sun and how did your body temperature take to it?

I haven't had my wedding yet, but I was concerned about the fabric for the same reason as you. I decided on silk taffeta. It's so lightweight and a breathable fabric yet still luxurious!

My dress was a taffeta.  I specifically told the lady when I was at the store trying on dresses that I didnt want satin.  From some friends who had destination weddings, one who wore satin, she said it really was hot, but she thinks it would have been hot no matter what she was wearing.  My dress was really light, I was hot, but not too hot that it was uncomfortable.  It was such an amazing day that that was the last of my worries to be honest.

I also purchased a maggie dress and its satin..I'm getting married in July and that's one of my concerns. I'm still going to wear it cause its just a few hours and plus i love the dress.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
