Nothing is more romantic that getting married on the beach. One important factor that many brides seem to stress over the most is their beach wedding dress. To your future husband he cannot see why you are stressing over a dress. He would think you were beautiful if you married him wearing a potato sack. The one thing about a beach wedding is that when selecting a dress pretty much anything would be appropriate, even a full-length white wedding dress. Before shopping for perfect dress, here are some things to think about.
Does it look good on you?
It would be great if you could walk into a shop and find the perfect dress in the first one you try on but every woman knows that is almost impossible. Take your time choosing a dress. Try them on and get a second opinion, look in the mirror at all angles, and if does not look good on you try another dress. You want to wear a dress that flatters your figure and wears well, even if you have to have it altered slightly.
The weather plays a very important part of the beach wedding attire. Not only do you have the weather but also the water, sun, and sand. If you plan a day wedding when the hot bright sun is overhead, choosing a heavy, bulky wedding dress with long sleeves would not be a good idea. For beach weddings, most brides will opt for strapless, sleeveless, or slip dresses that will help you stay cool in the sun. It is also advisable if you choose to have the traditional long white dress that it does not have a train. When you are escorted across the sand to your future husband, the train will be dragging across the sand. Not only is that not an attractive sight but the train will get very dirty. Choose a length that ends at or a few inches below your knees.
If you want to have a traditional veil do not choose the big cathedral veil because it will look very awkward to see it blowing in the ocean breeze. Use a small veil that just covers your face. When choosing your wedding dress think about the shoes because you do not want to attempt to walk across the sand in five-inch heels. Choose a nice pair of sandals or flats.
When choosing a setting for your wedding blend the tone and setting around your beach wedding dress. For example, if you were getting married on the beach in front of a five star resort, a casual dress and flip-flops would be too casual. To choose the right beach wedding dress, have a venue picked out first.
