Destination weddings are certainly one of the hottest wedding trends right now. If you got tired of traditional wedding ceremony and you would like your vow renewal to be a bit different and creative, book your nuptials at a beach resort. Even if you decide to throw an amazing, casual party instead of a formal one, you don’t have to give up on looking glamorous on your big day.
Start exploring a wide range of beach wedding dresses to pick the one that will make you take your groom’s breath away once he sees you walking down the isle. Contrary to the popular belief, these bridal gowns come in all styles, colors, fabrics and lengths. Even if you’re plus sized you’ll find something to fit your body type and fashion sense. There are designer beach wedding dresses in strapless, one-shoulder or halter style, plain and detailed. Simply put, your outfit choice depends only on you.
Nevertheless, skipping the big dress is more recommended, but if you just have to wear a ballgown and nothing else, make sure it’s easy to bustle. When it comes to fabrics, I suggest thinking light. Instead of a dress with lace trim, choose fabrics such as charmeuse, crepe or chiffon and your wedding gown will flow in the ocean breeze.
Outdoor weddings can be a nightmare for a photographer if a bride is wearing a long veil. Fresh flowers or marine-detailed fascinator are more recommended options for a beach wedding. Although loose, flowing hair may look like the best choice for your free-spirited style, in case of a strong breeze, you might find yourself battling curls sticking to your lipstick or strands between your teeth. A loosely arranged up-do will look both polished and relaxed. But, if wearing your hair down on your big day is your only option, it’s recommended to invest in a hairstylist who could do small touch-ups throughout your wedding ceremony and reception.
You know that high heels and sand are not so lovely combination. So, when it comes to the bridal footwear you can go barefoot or choose shoes that don’t sink into the send, such as wedges, espadrilles or flat-sole sandals.
