So you’re a bit of a free spirit. You’d like to get married with a breeze in your hair, the sun on your face and the sound of waves lapping on the sand. You’d like to carry a colorful spray of tropical blooms ? Sounds like you?
Well then, you need to think carefully about what you’re going to wear on your wedding day if you’ve opted for what’s known as a destination beach wedding.
Destination wedding dresses are designed with blue skies and tropical scenes in mind – and there are some stunning options around, both for you and your bridesmaids.
Opt for full skirts and petticoats and you’ll look and feel all wrong.
You need to be thinking lightweight gowns with fabrics like chiffon. Consider the romance of your surroundings – white sand and blue skies.
Think about simple ‘goddess’ style lines to your wedding dress, which hang in simple folds and drape the body loosely.
Strapless style wedding dresses can look fabulous at a beach wedding. You’ll look elegant as you glide towards your groom and you’ll stay cooler when the time comes for dancing.
Bridal Accessories? Well, you might decide that a vibrant tropical flower in your hair is enough to set off your outfit. As for bouquets, this is the time when some brides choose to commission a piece to keep forever as a memento of their special day. Think about shading yourself and your maids under a parasol. And as for shoes, it’s time to ditch the heels – think wedding flip flops instead. Oh.. Most important don’t forget your sunscreen!
