Planning the wedding can be stressful to a degree, especially if you’re looking to get married away from home, in an unusual location. Beaches have always been popular places for exchanging vows, for one obvious reason: they’re romantic. Therefore, if you’re thinking about getting married at the beach, you should plan everything to perfection, mainly to be able to enjoy your day to the fullest. However, choosing a wedding dress can be a bit tricky, because beach weddings often tend to be more laid back, so it’s important to opt for something that isn’t too restricting or heavy.
If you’re having issues with choosing your perfect beach wedding dress, here are some tips that will help you make the right choice.
1. Choose something elegant, yet practical
Getting married on the beach means a lot of sunshine, so it’s essential to choose a dress made of breathable fabrics, such as chiffon will help you get more comfortable and less sweaty, which is of utmost importance, especially if you’re wearing makeup or some extra sunscreen or body sequins. Therefore, before you buy a dress, make sure that it’s comfortable and flowy enough, so it won’t cause you any discomfort during your special day.

2. Consider prioritizing casual style
Maybe you’ve always wanted to get married in a lavish gown with a full bodice, skirt, and a long gown train, but unfortunately, the beach isn’t always the most appropriate place to don a big dress. Instead, it would be better to opt for something more casual, such as a dress that flows over the body lines as they’re more comfortable while also giving you a smooth silhouette and elegant appearance. Also, feel free to consider a short or knee-length dress as they’re more suitable for beach weddings, especially if you plan to dance on the sand after the ceremony!
3. Your comfort has no price
Wearing perfect, white heels is something almost every bride-to-be dreams about, however, getting married on the beach requires footwear that is more suitable and durable. Even though stilettos are the far more logical choice when wearing a bridal gown, it’s essential to point out that wearing them might cause you to sprain your ankle while walking on the sand, so it’s better to opt for cool cork shoes as they’re stylish and comfortable enough. In case you consider yourself a hippie at heart, you can always wear flip-flops, or even better, go walk the beach altar completely barefoot.
4. Accessories are important
Choosing a simple wedding dress doesn’t mean you have to give up fancy accessories as well. On the contrary, feel free to go a bit overboard, and style yourself with a long pearl necklace or a couple of bracelets or even anklets. When it comes to your hair, a loose braid or an updo is a practical choice, even though you can let your hair down, but keep in mind that it might get windy, so be sure to consider other options as well. Additionally, don’t forget to treat yourself to a pedicure, because marrying on the beach means your toes and nails will be visible, so it’s necessary to make them look good.
Marrying on the beach is what many people dream about, so if you’ve finally decided to have a destination wedding, then lucky you! Still, it’s important to choose a dress that will make you feel comfortable and carefree, so rather than choosing a classical wedding dress, it’s better to opt for a casual, romantic one that will allow you to move freely. Also, be mindful of your finances, because there’s no point in spending all of your savings on a dress when you can use that money to plan the rest of your wedding party.
