Beach Casual Wedding Dress
Cool, comfortable, floaty and sand-friendly!
Tips on choosing the perfect beach casual wedding dress.
If you're planning a destination wedding abroad or at a local hotspot next to a beach, then your choice of dress needs to take into account the venue, especially if you plan to take your vows right next to the shore.
The time of year and expected average temperature will also play a big part in deciding what wedding attire to choose, both for the bride and the groom - you don't, after all, want to be dripping with perspiration when saying I do!
Beach Wedding Attire
The best kind of beach wedding attire to choose is something casual yet smart and the best bit is a casual dress can be worn again and dyed if necessary.
Here are some tips when trying to find the perfect casual dress for a beach wedding:
Informal short wedding dresses could be the perfect choice as the bottom of the dress won't drag in the sand and you will be cooler; short frocks are also a great way to show off a good pair of legs!
If you're going long, think sheer and floaty using fabrics like chiffon or silk for keeping cool in hot weather.
Strapless, v-neck or halter neck styling details will help you show off any tan you get before the big day and this type of neckline is also great for the Greek goddess look - see the wedding dresses on this page for more inspiration.
Long gowns with a slit up the side are really practical if you are planning a wedding in really hot temperatures; they also give a better view of your footwear - think gorgeous flip-flop styling!
A lightweight casual wedding dress will also be far easier to pack and transport to a destination wedding and should hopefully arrive crease-free.
