Island Wedding Dresses
Simple and sexy
Stay cool with island wedding dresses that look great on the beach.
A beach wedding means a casual ceremony and traditional bridal gowns just don't go
with sand and sea.
Beach Casual Wedding Dress
If you're planning a beach wedding, you need a dress that is cool, light and comfortable like the Mariah Carey dress above.
Forget big wide skirts and tight bodices. Even a late afternoon island marriage ceremony will be
hot unless you book in the low season months.
Natural fabrics like silk are ideal and choosing silk chiffon is perfect as the see-through nature of natural silk
chiffon allows air to flow through it and your skin to breathe naturally.
Silk chiffon may be a little more expensive than cotton chiffon but drapes so much better plus island weddings usually work out cheaper
than a big wedding at home so use the budget saved on your dress!
Silk chiffon by the way has a natural shimmering glow unlike other chiffon fabrics so you can tell it's the real thing just by looking, touching
and feeling it.
Beach Wedding Dresses
An island wedding means you can wear almost anything you want including a
short wedding dress which won't drag through the sand - far more practical!
You can certainly save money as lighter (one layer) and/or shorter dresses use less material.
Strapless island wedding dresses are ideal for the beach as they show off your tan, as will a bikini which
many brides opt to wear, albeit a stunning designer one with a beautiful wrap to go over it.
But then a designer bikini costs far less than a frock!
If you do opt for a long length dress, forget the veil as it will only drag in the sand. A long floaty sheer
dress is best or maybe one with a split at the side - cool and very sexy!
This floaty dress just needs some flip flops
