Hello everyone!

 

I'm hoping some of you will have some advice for me. My fiance and I are starting to plan a destination wedding for mid December 2014 in Cancun Mexico.

 

I started dress shopping but i'm having trouble deciding what type of dress I should get. I know for destination weddings, they usually suggest having a simpler dress out of a lightweight, breathable fabric without a train. Problem is all the dresses I LOVE and want to wear on my wedding day are mermaid/fit and flare styles with BIG trains. Any advice about if I will be way too hot wearing this type of dress, or if I should go for something simpler? We are probably going to have the ceremony in a gazebo and the reception on a terrace or pool deck. Also, we're planning for December in Cancun which is cooler. The weather forecast says the average is 28 C (82 F) during the days and 20 (68 F) in the night times which doesn't sound too hot at all - it sounds like what our summers here in Toronto are.

 

Any advice would be great!

Hi! Congratulations!! I would say go with what you love. If that's a mermaid dress then go for it! I'm getting married in October and I'm going with a fit and flare because it's what felt right! :)

I think you should wear whatever you want to wear! Having said that, yes, you definitely want to be comfortable especially for something as important as your wedding day. I don't think a train would be that much of an issue if you are able to bustle it. That makes it easy to get around after your ceremony and pictures. But a nice train always looks nice in photos. As to weather in December, I'm also in the Toronto area so am familiar with what our summers can be (hot!!) Mexico weather is wonderful, and you don't get the humidity in December that you get during the summer months. I think you'll find its quite comfortable, but it can also be very warm. You don't want a great big heavy dress definitely. Anything in chiffon, or organza would be comfortable, or some of the new light satins would also work. I think if you don't have a ton of crinoline, you'll be more comfortable. Mermaid and trumpet styles are very popular now and I say if you have the figure to wear one, go for it!!! If you go to a bridal salon, I'm sure the store clerks would be more than happy to help you out with styles that will work for a destination wedding if you tell them that's what you need, as well as a dress that will travel well.

 

Just my humble opinion. Good luck and happy planning!!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

This is very helpful so far! Thank you

 

I think I will definitely take on the advice of the sales assistants and maybe try to find the shape and style I love in a more lightweight fabric. I'll want to do pics on the beach too and the bustle idea to get around is great

I say so with what you like! It's your day so do what makes you happy!

 

Another thing to consider is how to get your dress on the plane. I have heard of some problems getting the dress on the plane. Just something to keep in mind!
