First of all, you may not realize it, but the expense to hem that gown is going to cost quite a bit as it has to be hemmed from a seam at the top of the skirt in order to preserve the hemline.
Secondly, that dress is going to get trashed and full of sand. As you feet sink into the sand, the photos will show a dress that looks too long as well.
You will be hot, no doubt. Those dresses have layers of linings that are all made out of 100% polyester, a fabric that does not breathe and will cause you to be very hot.
With that being said, this dress is not a beach appropriate dress, especially in Mexico in the height of the summer when it is going to be very hot outside. Think: you have sunbathed before, right? How hot do you think you would get if you wore that dress on a day you would typically lay on a towel and catch some sun at the beach? Yeah, too hot, eh?
Have you checked out the bridal dress section at Anthropology? There are some great beach appropriate choices and the prices are fantastic as well. Don't forget to check out the bridesmaids dresses as some could very well be great for the bride.
