i fell in love with the dress but.....

I absolutely fell in love with the dress and couldn't picture myself in anything else. Pictures don't do it justice because it actually sparkles in the light and I had never seen another dress like it so I bought it. Well now I'm thinking how hard it's going to be to have a wedding in Mexico in May in this mermaid dress. Surprisingly it's not as heavy as you'd think but I can imagine it being hot since there's little airflow. I looked at beachy wedding dress but they just didn't fit my personality. Has anyone else had an experience like this? In the end, I'll suck it up to keep my dream dress but I will need alternations done. The dress is about 6 inches too long for me. Anything I can do during alternations to make it not so hard to sit in or so hot?

    Hi there Nicole!

    Firstly, your dress is stunning! It looks amazing on you.

    Perhaps during your alterations appointment, you could speak with the seamstress about a way of making it easier to sit in or not so hot. It would be amazing if some material could be taken from it if it didn’t affect the structure or look of the dress in any way.

    Have you found a seamstress yet?

    Beautiful! Aside from alterations, I would suggest some sweat-wicking underwear/ shorts. That way, if you're hot you at least don't feel sticky. Good luck!

    What a stunning dress! I'd talk to the person doing your alterations, they'll know the best way to help.

    Overall if it's hard to sit in it's too tight, tell the seamstress.
    I was told all wedding dresses are hot no matter what and get sweat wicking under garments

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions! I didn't even think about sweat wicking undergarments. And I'll for sure see what my seamstress says
