    I have a question for past brides.... if you could go back in time to select your dress for your destination wedding, would you still buy a full length lined gown???

     

    I worry about being too hot as my wedding is at noon!

      This is a good question. I originally wanted a short dress and this was one of the reasons why. I ended up with a long one though... but it is pretty light. I am curious what previous brides will have said.

        This is my wedding dress I purchased from Kleinfelds.  It's a Lazaro and it was absolutely beautiful with tons of beaded detail. Loved it!  I need an excuse to wear it again!

        Posted Image Just picked out this bridesmaid dress. Honestly hardest thing to have girls agree on everything and finding a dress that can look good on all different body types! They plan on wearing some sort of belt with their dress.

        Hi Joanne,

         

        Yes, I would. It was about what looked best on me, and what made me feel beautiful. I tried on a number of the lighter weight "destination" dresses, and they just weren't flattering for my body type. I was hot and sweaty dancing at the reception - it just didn't matter to me. I wanted to enjoy every second of the party, and I did! 

         

        My advice is to find the dress you love, and embrace every bit of it. You can always take a break to freshen up, or cool off for a few minutes. Take some blotter paper with you in your bride bag, and some extra make up to do a quick fix. Then get back to that party and enjoy it.

          Hi Vanessa,

           

          No, I didn't do the trash the dress, just a few shots on the beach before sunset.  Thank you so much!  One of the best days of my life. :)

            Thanks for the advice Allie.  I'm going dress shopping next weekend so I will just see what looks best.  Ultimately, I would like to find a dress with a detachable train.  That may solve everything!

                Check out the Alfred Angelo style #2219... its a long dress with a detachable bottom and it is gorgeous! Then you would get the best of both worlds!
