Hi everyone,

 

Is it just me, or does it seem like the only lightweight fabric out there these days is CHIFFON?  It seems like every picture of a wedding I'm seeing lately has the bridesmaids in different colours of long, flowy, chiffon dresses.  Any other elegant alternatives out there?  It's obviously beautiful, and great for the heat, but I don't want my wedding to look like everyone else who got married in 2014-2015.

Unfortunately that seems to be the only thing I've found that is relatively cool. If you think about it all the others are just too heavy and warm - the satins and taffeta. I've seen some brocade and it's really heavy. You want something that's going to breathe in the heat and will keep your wedding party comfortable.


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

    We looked at bridesmaid dresses today and you're right, lots of chiffon. They did have a couple of dresses they called mesh that were also lightweight.

    @Kerrierf have you thought a bought getting their dresses made. When I went to prom I had my dress made in bathing suit material it was light and comfortable

      I think tulle is also can be used as lightweight fabric,you can choose the tulle dress to show a romantic feeling.

      They are both popular style for summer wedding.

      All I've seen is chiffon. Tulle is another option but I haven't seen any like that. Also my dress has tulle so I want them to look different. You could get them made if the budget allows

        I have seen a few dresses in a jersey fabric that are lightweight.  I like the two birds bridesmaid dress, and it's a jersey fabric. Dessy group has something similar.  Or if you just google "jersey bridesmaid dress", you'll see more options. I pulled up some on david's bridal and anne taylor

          Tulle or a soft colored lace (depending on availability of colors), yeah chiffon is very common, The choices provided here are great. Perhaps look into wedding magazines :) best to you :)

          I think you have to look at places outside the box. I was a BM in a wedding and the bride purchased our dresses for $10 at a flea market place and they were different, lightweight and so comfy. We looked nice and it was what she envisioned. Just food for thought.
          Good Luck :)
