Key words for a stress free wedding day: beach-y, romantic, affordable. Now keep those ideas fresh in your mind. Bring them to the table when choosing your perfect beach wedding dress. Let’s use those three magical words for our wedding dress guide.
How to Choose the Perfect Beach Wedding Dress:
Beach-y: Your choice for a beach wedding alludes to the fact that you have an appreciation for the outdoors. So let’s consider the beach elements like sun and sand when narrowing down your beach wedding dress selection. It’s best to stick with dress fabrics that are lightweight. Cotton, chiffon, tulle, lace overlays are all great options. Avoid heavy ballgown type dresses that will get weighed down in the sand and leave you uncomfortable. This doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice a traditional white wedding gown look, just choose the right fabric.
Romantic: Romance is in the eye of the beholder? Or something like that. 😉 Let your natural style guide you here. Are you into vintage? Modern? Classic? Boho Chic? Fun and flirty? Get an idea of which style speaks to you and that will narrow your focus. Any style can be tweaked or adapted to fit the beach scene. So once you’ve found your “style” keep in mind the fabric choices from the “beach” point above.
Affordable: Where there’s a high end wedding dress, there is an equally creative company designing very similar concepts. And at a much more budget-friendly price. There’s nothing wrong with skimming the hottest bridal magazine for inspiration, but don’t get glued to an exact dress. Find a dress you love and get in touch with your local bridal gown store. These stores specialize in the latest trends and brands and can likely find the perfect beach wedding dress for you! There’s another take here too. You can keep the romance and tradition, but opt for a more casual dress. Peruse the mall or local boutiques for white dresses that may not be labeled as “wedding dresses.”
In conclusion, if you have the right fabric, feel romantic and beautiful, and haven’t broken the bank- success! Happy Shopping and Congratulations!
