Beach wedding dresses are not really different from traditional wedding dresses, but if you’re planning to say yes in the beach, you should be able to know everything there is to know about what to wear on your big day!

Best material for a beach wedding dress

Beach weddings usually take place in spring or summer, so breathable and comfortable light fabrics may be the best option for warm weather weddings. These can include organza, linen, cotton, chiffon, lace or lightweight silk.

Many beach brides choose a light, airy, effortless feel for their wedding, but there are certain dress styles that might work better than others.

Some brides-to-be may feel confused about what kind of beach wedding dress to choose, because typical wedding gowns can feel too formal for an easygoing, relaxed wedding theme. But that doesn’t mean that the wedding gown has to be plain, because beach wedding dresses can fall anywhere on the style spectrum. The only really important thing is to find a dress that makes you feel beautiful.

If you are someone who gets hot quickly, then choosing light fabrics will be the smartest choice, no matter the style. Materials like linen, organza, cotton, chiffon, lace or lightweight silk are excellent options for casual or formal beach wedding dresses.

Weather conditions for a beach wedding dress

Another important factor to keep in mind while choosing your wedding gown in a bridal boutique is comfort and weather conditions. The beach may be windy, so, it may be better to avoid too short or too loose dress designs if you don’t want a Marilyn Monroe moment in front of your wedding guests. Also, the length of your dress and the material must be considered, floor-length dresses with small train on a satin or charmeuse dress will shake out much easier than lace; but if the hemline picks up sand or gets wet, it will weigh everything down.

White and ivory fabrics will always be the standard wedding dress colors, but in this relaxed environment, you may want to select a colored wedding dress combining with your wedding colors. Look around the area surrounding your beach wedding to select your theme colors.
