Wedding dress for a beach wedding

If you are considering having a destination wedding by the beach, you might want to also consider getting a dress that fits the location and that you will feel comfortable in. First of all look for the dress style that is most flattering for your figure. Once you’ve determined the silhouette you can focus on the wedding dress’s details.

Look for light-weight fabrics to keep you cool and comfortable. To be as comfortable as possible on the day of, you would want to wear lighter fabrics such as: chiffon, crepe, cotton eyelet, cotton organdy, organza, Georgette, charmeuse and voile.

From strapless and sophisticated to short and flirty, your choice will depend on your body type and your taste but here are some styles you should consider:

One Shoulder

A long chiffon dress with a straight skirt and one shoulder strap is a great option and it will make you look gorgeous.

Cocktail Length

If you are not into a traditional wedding dress and would like to mix it up a bit, then a knee-length white cocktail dress can take you from your wedding ceremony to any other place in town later, for an after party. Another plus of having a shorter dress on the beach is that it makes it easy for brides to walk around the sand.

Short Trains

Getting married on the beach doesn’t mean you need to forget about having a train on your dress; but having a shorter train will allow you to not worry much about it if your dress gets in touch with wet sand and waves.

Flowing Dresses

A flowing dress works great for a beach wedding because it will have movement with the breeze and it’s a great option if you are looking for a most relaxed look.

Spaghetti Strap

A sundress with spaghetti straps and lace accents works well on the beach and it will allows you to show off you’re tan in wedding photos.

Final tips:

  • Try to stay away from heavy beading that will add weight to the dress and pull it down a bit.
  • Consider avoiding a long train, which could accumulate sand.
  • Stay away from the cathedral-length wedding veil, which could be flying up if with a strong ocean breeze.
