Factors to consider while choosing a wedding dress:

Fabric 

Light fabrics are ideal for beach weddings. These fabrics include organza, linen, chiffon, and also lace and cotton blends that are an excellent option in light fabrics. These help you remain cool under the sun and prevent you from sweating which in turn will protect your dress from sweat marks. 

Colors 

Light and bright colors are the best to pick a beach wedding outfit. Consider the color palette and find the shade that complements your skin tone. Experimenting with some light floral print is also ideal for a beach wedding. 

Event type

There are some couples who expect their wedding to be formal or semi-formal. For such occasions consider the following types

Casual

Casual beach weddings are most common. For this, you do not need a specialized beach wedding dress, a simple sundress for women and a pair of khaki and linen shorts for men will do. These weddings are generally held during the daytime, so it is better to stay comfortable and enjoy the shore view. 

Formal

Formal weddings include an evening wedding ceremony followed by a reception which generally includes dancing, dining, and boozing. At such events, formal beach wedding dresses like floor-length gowns will do and for men a shirt with short sleeves is alright. 

Semi-formal

A semi-formal beach wedding includes an evening ceremony followed by a reception. For such occasions, you can wear light clothing that keeps you warm during breezy evenings. Men’s beach attire can be khaki, linen, seersucker plants, or button-down sport coats. Whereas wedding gown ideas for women can be dresses made of materials like lace, chiffon, organza, and many gorgeous choices.  

Footwear

Wedding shoes are important. Wear shoes that match the color of your outfit because they are more important than you think. For men, leather flip-flops and sandals are appropriate at casual beaches whereas women can wear gladiator sandals or ballet flats which will keep them comfortable and stylish at the same time. 

Accessories 

Accessories that complement the destination wedding outfit can be worn for such occasions. These could be earrings, bangles, a cross-body purse, or other jewelry pieces. One more addition could be the fancy hair clips or headscarf to make your outfit look more stylish. Just make sure not to overdo it. A lot of accessories can ruin your smartness.   

Hair

Nothing more annoying than hair flying and getting on your face or sticking on your lipstick. If your hairs are long, consider pinning them with a pretty clip or bobby pins. This will make you feel comfortable and help you keep up with the atmosphere of the place.  

Makeup 

Heavy makeup could be hard to maintain or the foundation might run or smudge out. If it is gonna be a long night, consider applying a spray, powder, or mascara. Natural makeup is also a good choice. It gives a soft and shining look which makes it perfect for a beach wedding 

What does a bride wear for a beach wedding?

The beach wedding attire should be more elevated opposite to a laid-back sundress or shorts. If you are unsure about your wedding outfit, research well on the internet for the most suitable beach wedding dresses. The time of the day also matters. Evenings tend to be more formal. The venue also plays an important role because a beach wedding resort will most probably require a formal outfit for an intimate gathering. In the end, just go with what makes you feel the most comfortable. 

Which outfits are suitable for an evening beach wedding?

  • If you are asked to wear formal attire, then a long elegant gown is the perfect fit 
  • If the dress code for the event is semi-formal attire, a short or tea-length dress will be comfortable because it won’t drag in the sand plus they transition beautifully in the reception venue. 
  • For a casual beach wedding, a Maxi dress is perfect. A maxi dress with loose-fitting around a bottom dress can easily sweep it across the sand and brush it clean for seaside reception. 

This is how you can embrace the outfit game and make the special day of your life memorable. As a popular proverb says ‘Dress shabbily and they remember the dress, dress impeccably and they remember the girl’ Keep this in mind if you want to be remembered as a beautiful beachside bride.
