Wedding Dress is Too Heavy

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?

    Hi Saundra!
    Thank you for this tip for the brides to be!
    I had a bride in a lovely dress, heavy, with beading on the bottom and many layers of Tulle underneath. When it came time to walk down the aisle, she practically had to pull herself because the dress was catching on the carpet!
    She said it took all her energy to get to the altar! IMHO an aisle runner should be used when in doubt…if the facility allows!
    An unforeseen event for sure! Seems no one else really noticed and of course did not effect the loveliness of the ceremony or the success of her marriage 🙂
    ~Thanks for the great blog!
