      totally agree!! I had a few ppl tell me my dress was "too big for the beach, you want a light flowy one". Originally thats what I had envisioned...but then I tryed my dress on lol. I mean its not SUPER huge and poofy like one of the other ones I really liked but its pretty poofy. I may melt on the day of the weddign but it will totally be worth it because to me, my dress can't be replaced!! I wouldn't trade it for any other dress! I've actually even thought about putting one of those little portable battery powered fans in my garter haha - might help cool the lower half off! YOUR dress, YOUR day, do what makes YOU happy!! =) Pain in the rear trying to please everyone, and it's not possible. I'm figuring this out the hard way lol

        Put it this way.....you are on a beach, under the sun....you are going to be hot if you got married in a bathing suit :) That's what i told myself when making my decision. Just make sure you have bottles of water handy to stay hydrated (that applies to any dress and any one). I was sweaty under my dress for sure but i would lift it a little now and then to air out LOL and there was a nice breeze by the beach so it wasnt so bad and as you can see in the pics i'm not a sweaty mess :)

         

        I think you need to wear what you love...its your chance and your one special day! do what makes you happy and feel like a queen! 

         

        I was going to change out of my dress but i wanted to wear my wedding dress for as long as possible!

        Fiance has suggested i wear a bigger dress for the church ceremony and legal ceremony (and photos) and then something simple for the reception so im thinking about that - seems a bit extravangant though!



         

        I think you are asking me since this post came soon after i posted the pics LOL so if so, its made by Allure and the model is 8810

        GO WITH YOUR GUT!  How did this dress make you feel when you tired it on?  What was the first thought that went through your mind when you looked at yourself in the mirror with it on?????    

         

        I think it's a beautiful dress.  What didn't they like about it?

              We rented the catamaran through our tour operator representative. When we had the orientation meeting and she was describing all the tours and excursions i told her what i wanted and i didnt want to be with a group of other people so she made a few calls and for $240 and we rented the catamaran for half a day including transportation to and from resort. It was for our TTD....that pic was the only pic in the bunch from the TTD the next day. the Catamaran owner was great and really enjoyed the experience..he got in the water and helped with my dress and everything....it was worth every penny and we got some great pics that day :)
