I had a client who had a wedding dress that was really heavy. She knew she was getting married in a summer month but fell in love with this dress! Now it wasn’t “winter fabric” but it had a lot of brocade and beading, making it about 30lbs.
So be careful in these hot summer months to choose a dress that is not only drop-dead gorgeous, but also cool and comfortable. If that isn’t in the cards for you, consider a dress change at receptions. Hey! The stars do it, why can’t we?
