Tips on Choosing the Best Beach Wedding Dress
Sun, sand, and sea: what could be better for a destination wedding? If you’re planning on a beach ceremony, then you’ll definitely want to go for comfort. Ball gowns and sand just don’t mix!
But there are plenty of beautiful wedding dresses that embrace that boho beachy vibe with finesse. We’re here to help by sharing our favorite tips for coastal styles that shine.
Go for convenience
Consider that you’ll be outside under the sun, and that calls for a silhouette that is breathable and airy.
This is your chance to go boho with a flowy skirt and detachable sleeves, or for a fit that never fails- an empire waist.
Sheath and A-line dresses are also flattering for the figure. Mermaid dresses may not be the most convenient, but if it looks and feels good, go for it and be the mermaid you’ve always dreamt of!
Choose light, breathable fabrics
Heavily layered skirts might have you sweating under that hot sun. Instead, opt for airy fabrics that you can easily move around in, such as chiffon or charmeuse.
Cue the casual
If you’re not into fancy, then a beach wedding allows you to be casual and natural in the outdoors.
Go for a minimalistic look that you can also wear after the ceremony when it’s time to dance.
This is also a great way to save some money if you’re a bride on a budget.
One way you can really embrace the coastal vibe is by accessorizing with artistic, nature-inspired pieces.
As far as shoes go, stilettos aren’t practical for sand, but you can wear flats, go barefoot or adorn your feet with a delicate foot chain.
A veil is traditional, but it may not feel nice when a sea breeze whips it into a frenzy. Choose a flower crown or for a true one-of-a-kind look, wear a seashell tiara.
