  6. Best Wedding Dress Style For Beach Wedding

    August 14, 2019 by barbara

    If you have decided to have a beach wedding, you will need to find the perfect wedding dress that is suitable for your chosen location.  Beach weddings can be casual and carefree. Your first thought may be a full lace A-line gown but this simply will not fit in with a laid-back celebration on the beach. With beach wedding dresses, the key is to be practical.  Choosing beach-ready wedding attire can be tough, especially when facing the elements like sand, sun and breezes.

    There are a few simple guidelines to keep in mind. For instance, it is better to skip a formal ball gown or chapel train because it will weigh you down. If you are seeking a full gown, then opt for a simpler, fluid shape and figure-faltering cut that allow for easy movement and offer breathability (like chiffon and silk).  Designs with loosely woven lace, relaxed embroidery, flouncy tiers, and sheer panels give a simpler silhouette a beachy feel, but are elegant and eye-catching which can maintain airflow and comfort.

    Here are some of the favorite beach wedding dresses from Suzhoudress.co.uk, a popular wedding dress online retailer serving thousands of customers across the globe.  They also offer one of the largest selections of bridal, prom, bridesmaids, homecoming and evening dresses.

    You can’t go wrong with this spaghetti strap chiffon dress.

    This A-Line Ruffles Off the Shoulder dress will move beautifully in the sea breeze.

    Short beach wedding dresses are perfect because they feel laidback and eliminate the issue of sand in your hem.

    Here is another tip.  High heels and sand do not mix so remember to opt for wedges or flats instead to match your wedding dress.
