Trending Beach Wedding Dresses for Your Destination Wedding
Beach weddings are a favorite option among couples intending to walk down the aisle. From the sunny weather, the pristine oceans, and the glowing white sand beaches, weddings by the shore truly make for an enchanting, memorable occasion. Plus, with each wedding destination offering unique venues to get hitched – including traditional verandas by private coves, courtyards by gorgeous gardens, and custom made arches by the beach – you could tailor your wedding down to the very last detail to meet all your heart’s desires.
But no beach wedding is complete without the perfect dress! Because of the shores sandy and windy grounds, picking an exquisite dress for the beach could prove a challenge. So we gathered a couple of pointers to help keep up with the latest trends.
Think soft, lightweight, and airy. These are key elements when envisioning your beach wedding dress. For the material, you could choose from gossamer fabrics, made popular due to the fact that it floats and doesn’t tangle when a gush of wind passes by; or from lightweight, breathable fabrics like silk, cotton, or linen that delicately drapes over your physique to prevent weighing you down.
If you still prefer a more lavish ensemble, pick an interestingly designed dress, over a heavy one. Intricate details like a V-lined necklace, embroidered flowers, or a shimmery, watercolor sheer outer material, for instance, will definitely create a standout look.
You can either go for the traditional white dress or try something different. Beige and silver are an interesting color combination and just like the white dress, these colors create an elegant tone. The silver is a favorite, as it adds a little sparkle to the otherwise neutral colored dress.
Another trending color palette that will give you a slightly more adventurous look is light green and sea glass blue. The blue of the ocean will lend character to this playful, yet refined look.
Top off your ensemble with fun, subtle accessories!
A small designer clutch and a simple, short chiffon veil would pair nicely with the serene and easygoing ambiance of the beach.
