Thinking about appropriate beach wedding attire such as a beach wedding dress can be tricky - you need to balance style with practicality. Try to remember that it is a wedding so you should dress formally but you might want to consider some alterations to your accessories and fabric choices so that you are more comfortable on the beach. For the bride, a beach wedding dress can be designed in a number of different ways. Lace is still an excellent option if you’re going down the traditional route, but for a more contemporary feel, you could look into a flowy beach wedding dress or a bohemian wedding dress. There are a few other things to consider with a beach wedding. Firstly, trains are probably going to be too much hassle given the sandy beaches. With that said, trains really do look gorgeous at weddings so if your heart is set on a train - don’t let the sand get in the way! Try to keep accessories to a minimum and opt for breathable, breezy fabrics to keep you cool on the beach. As far as shoes go, high heels might look stunning but they are very difficult to use on the beach. Consider flat sandals, flip flops, or even go barefoot.
Beach chic attire encapsulates breezy, bright, and elegant aesthetics. For the ladies, that means going with fabrics that are lightweight and won’t cling to the body, such as lace or a cotton blend. For men, linen or cotton is a great fabric choice that offers style, sophistication, and comfort.
For women, it is advisable to avoid black attire because it will get quite hot even if it looks great. Instead, try to emulate your surrounding with colors like turquoise, terra cotta, tangerine, and sunflower. You might want to consider an appropriate pattern or design too - floral prints are a great option. For men, any color (other than black!) is suitable for a beach wedding, but try to keep light tones in mind. Light grey, tan or cream linens are an excellent option and can be effortlessly paired with a nice white shirt. In terms of materials for your beach wedding dress, it is important to think practically. Beaches can be very hot and windy so breezy, light fabrics are the best option. We recommend choosing from fabrics that include: Chiffon, Lace, Satin, Tulle, Taffeta.
