    Yikes! Can't figure out why those are so big and the first one wasn't. I will try to change that...

      There are so many BEAUTIFUL dresses posted on here! I just started shopping for my wedding dress and I'm going again on Saturday with all of my BM's. I noticed that a few of the dresses look like they would be heavy. Last week I found I was just grabbing a dress and lifting a dress to see how heavy it is before even looking at it. I quickly eliminated half of the store. Is anyone else concerned about how hot they will be? I know it's the most important day of my life and I want to look beautiful but I don't want to be sweating like crazy and uncomfortable all day. I want a dress that I can wear all day and have fun in. Any suggestions on what kind of material I should be looking for that is breathable??

      I found one last week that I loved and I was so shocked because it was the complete opposite of what I thought I would want. It was plain and strapless but once I added some jewelery and a headband I was in love. I'm thinking I will have my dress picked out by Saturday night. So excited!!

        i am also concerned about having a really hot and heavy dess, so i am looking to stick to taffeta or chiffon and stay away from satin. most of the styles i like are taffeta anyhow, so i think i am good to go!

        happy shopping!

          I lifted dresses before trying them on. If they were heavy, they were out. I want to look beautiful, first and foremost, but i won't if i'm not comfortable!

              I went into shopping thinking that I didn't care if it was heavy or not. I didn't want a ball gown, anyway, I wanted a mermaid style. BUT, after trying a few on and realizing how heavy some of them were to even get into them I totally starting lifting dresses and eliminating them too. Just thinking about how hot it's going to be I can't imagine having to carry around 20 lbs of dress too!

              I'm so happy I found mine. It's simple lace, really light, and extremely flattering and beautiful.

                Ladies... your dresses are all so beautiful!!!

                I wish I had pictures of my dress to share, but I haven't made it yet. I will be a two piece wedding sarong with scarf top made of white silk charmeuse and turquoise blue slip set underneath. When it is done I will post the pictures.

                      Do you have a picture? I didn't even think about that, the heaviness of it..hmmm.
