What type of fabric/material did you all choose for your bridesmaids dresses? I like the look of satin dresses but don't want my girls to be too hot.

This is just my opinion, but I would think something light and airy, like chiffon would be ideal in a warm climate. Satin does have a tendency to stick to you... lol There are so many beautiful styles available in chiffon too!

Yeah if anyone sweats it will show through really easily on satin. I went with chiffon dresses and they will look soo nice and flowy on the beach!

My girls are wearing silk dresses from J Crew. We got them 40% off on the black Friday sale. Came to $175 each. It's really hard to find 100% silk, but I worry that chiffon will be too hot also.

We selected silk chiffon for my girls. It was light and flawy. Although after our epic dance party, everyone was sweating, it didn't matter what fabric you were in! :)

      I went with silk chiffon too - I got the ones from J Crew. Wasn't picky about design, and just grabbed the styles they had on sale in the colours I wanted for an extra 50% off! Got them for about $75 after shipping and duties!

      Chiffon here too, they are a darker color so I really wanted something that flowed.
