A destination wedding requires a beautiful beachy gown! Here are our top tips for choosing destination wedding dresses.
When it comes to choosing destination wedding dresses, one of the most important things you need to think about is keeping your cool. Choose light, natural fabrics that will breathe – the last thing you need is to be sweaty in your wedding photos!
Chiffon, charmeuse, organza, and georgette are all wise choices. Although a slinky silk dress might seem like a good option, it could trap the heat. It’s also likely to wrinkle while traveling, so have a plan in place to straighten things up when you arrive.
Leave the long sleeves at home! Sleeveless designs are the best choice for a beach wedding dress. Choose thin straps, a halter neck or a Grecian-inspired one-shoulder gown for gorgeous, summery style.
You should not rule out a shorter dress too soon. A knee-length or cocktail style dress can be the perfect choice for a beach ceremony. It will keep you much cooler, will show off tanned legs and is in no danger of getting ruined by sand or seawater!
A destination wedding dress doesn’t have to mean a plain dress. You can still have beautiful pearl and crystal embellishments if want to include some sparkle. But, it is recommended that you keep it up top. Go for a glittering bodice maybe a nice beaded belt, and leave the skirt plain and flowing. It will give your dress a beachy feel.
