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!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
