Whether you call Florida home or just a tropical destination, you might know that the weather is wonderful all year ‘round and is perfect for planning any sort of celebration. It’s home to sunny skies, beautiful beaches and fresh, delicious food. Florida is just perfect, especially for a couple that is ready to tie the knot. There are so many great locations for the big day. And once you’ve decided on one, there are even more big decisions to make such as the date, the menu, the music, the guest list and – for the bride – the dress. There’s nothing more special than the day the bride finds “the one” that she is going to walk down the aisle in. And in Florida, it’s important to choose the right dress.

 A few styles and fabrics a bride might want to stay away from are thick or heavy fabrics, a style with a sleeve, a high neckline. A full bottom with many layers will be hot and uncomfortable in the Florida heat. Whether your wedding will take place outside or inside, you might still have to battle the humid weather.

 When you’re searching, go for all natural fabrics versus synthetic. These will be the most breathable and comfortable, and won’t stick to your body. There is always the option of going short as well. Long dresses are the standard, but in Florida, short might be better for keeping cool. Keep these tips in mind as you choose dresses for your bridesmaids as well. They’ll want to be comfortable, too.
