Wedding Dresses for Your Beach Wedding

What’s HOT and What’s NOT in Wedding Dresses

Wedding dresses are not just something beautiful to look at — your dress is an expression of your personality so–have some fun with it! You have so much more flexibility with a beach wedding than any other wedding venue and, who says it has to be white?

Wedding Sarongs

One of the hot new fashions are wedding sarongs. You’re probably familar with a sarong being used as a bathing suit coverup. Wedding sarongs are not only are they beautifully elegant yet casual at the same time, they are also very inexpensive!

Talk about easy on the budget!

You can get a beautiful wedding sarong for as little as $14.99. Now that’s something that should make you smile when it comes to your wedding expenses.

Wearing a sarong as opposed to a traditional wedding gown may be able to afford you an upgrade to the honeymoon suite at your wedding resort!

These sarongs take it to the next level!

Short and Sassy

Short or mini-dresses are a great solution if you want to remain traditional yet, shed the long gown. Think about standing too close to the shoreline and getting the bottom of your long wedding gown wet and sandy. Although it can come clean, it’s not the best look for your wedding pictures.

Other Wedding Styles

Bermuda or Walking Shorts and a matching elegant blouse would make a great look for a casual beach wedding. While this isn’t a wedding “dress”, it’s a super alternative!

Wedding Dress Styles to Avoid

When you visualize yourself standing on a windy beach, you probably don’t see yourself wearing a heavy, bulky wedding dress with layers and layers of fabric or a long cumbersome cathedral train. While this look suits some wedding venues and some brides, it’s not the best look or feel for a beach wedding.

A Tropical Setting to Say “I Do”

Most little girls dream of a magical fairytale wedding day when they will wed their Prince Charming. However, over the past couple of decades, the cost of a large traditional ceremony has almost gotten out of reach for many people! The old tradition of the bride’s parents paying for everything, has become financially impossible for a lot of families and, most engaged couples are now sharing in the expense.

If the thought of high expenses makes your head spin, a beach wedding ceremony at a seaside destination might end up being a less expensive alternative to a traditional hometown ceremony. By having a simple beach wedding ceremony somewhere other than your hometown, you may not feel the same sense of obligation to invite a large number of people. In other words, you can have a more intimate gathering with fewer guests, resulting in lower overall costs.

Even better still — and much lower costs — if only the two of you are in attendance!
