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.

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.

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.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
