The beach is undoubtedly one of the most romantic places for a wedding. Just imagine dipping your toes in the sand, surrounded by a majestic view, feeling the breeze and hearing the crashing waves as you exchange vows with the love of your life. Incredible, isn’t it? It’s no wonder that more and more couples are opting for a beach wedding destination.

Before you begin your gown search, you have to take some factors into consideration. Below are some tips that can help you decide on what to wear for your beach wedding:

Consider the setting.

The style of your gown largely hinges on the setting of the wedding. If it’s in the daytime, you can opt for pieces that feature beautiful embroidery and delicate details as these can be noticed in the sunlight. If you’re getting married at night, simpler but sparkly dresses would be more suitable to enhance their beauty under the moon.

You should also consider the terrain and the weather. If you’re walking on a sandy dune, your dress needs to be functional, ideally one that allows you to roam and dance freely. You also have to think about the climate, whether there’s a chance of a strong breeze or not. If you choose a breezy location, it would be better to wear an outfit with a few loose accessories. You might also want to ditch the veil in case it gets blown away.

Pinpoint potential transportation issues.

If you’re having a destination wedding, it’s likely that you’re going to have to transport your dress from one place to another. Unless, of course, the designer you chose already lives near your wedding venue. If you have to transport your gown, consider a style that is light and compact so you will have no trouble hand carrying it on the way. Avoid dresses with multiple skirts and trains as they tend to be heavy and require more space.

It’s okay to be stylish.

There’s a misconception that just because you’re going for a beach wedding, you also have to sacrifice the aesthetic of your dress. This is not the case, of course. While it’s easier to pick a simple, no-frills, dress, there’s no harm in being stylish as well. What’s important is it’s beautiful, functional, and flatters your body type. Your dress has to fit you perfectly and highlights your features. A-line, empire waists, and sheath gowns are advisable, but ball gowns and mermaid gowns are considered a no-no.

As for the length, you might want to veer off dresses with trains as they may end up looking grubby in photos. If you must, and if having a train is your dream, a good trick would be making it detachable so you can take it off when you start to feel uncomfortable.
