Best Beach Wedding Dresses
Beach wedding dresses come in all fabrics, lengths, and silhouettes. Here are some of our favorite unique and affordable outfits for a bride to wear for a beach wedding!
When it comes to a beach wedding dress there aren’t any rules you have to adhere to. Many brides choose to have a destination wedding because they tend to be more laid-back and casual. But that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style for your big day!
Typically the silhouette that comes to mind is a lightweight, airy gown that would look gorgeous up against the crashing waves. And while boho chic is the look du jour for beach weddings, a formal ballgown would also look striking in an ocean setting.
Beach weddings can be super laid back and casual with the bride walking down the sandy aisle in a nontraditional wedding dress or even a bathing suit! But there are plenty of outdoor beach weddings that have an air of formality to them even if they aren’t directly on the sand. A classic a-line skirt or fully beaded gown can still evoke a beach vibe when the backdrop consists of sun and surf.
