How to find the perfect wedding dress for a beach ceremony?

Wedding Advice, Wedding Fashion

Are you dreaming of saying “I do” with the sand between your toes and the sound of waves in the background? A beach wedding can be a picturesque and romantic way to exchange vows. But when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding dress for such a scenic setting, there are a few important factors to consider. Here’s a guide to help you find the ideal gown for your beach ceremony.

Embrace Light Fabrics

One of the key considerations for a beach wedding dress is the fabric. Opt for lightweight, breathable materials like chiffon, organza, or lace. These fabrics not only flow beautifully in the ocean breeze but also keep you cool and comfortable under the sun. Avoid heavy satin or velvet, as they can feel stifling in warm weather. Designers with these fabrics are Justin Alexander, Wilderly and Morilee

Keep It Simple

A beach wedding calls for a more relaxed and effortless style. Consider simple, elegant silhouettes that complement the natural surroundings. A-line, sheath, or empire waist dresses are popular choices for beach brides, as they are easy to move in and offer a laid-back yet sophisticated look. These styles can be cooler sometime too. BUT, remember its YOUR dress and you can wear whatever makes you feel amazing!

Opt for a Shorter Hemline

Since you’ll be walking on sand, a long train or floor-length gown may not be the most practical option. Instead, consider a shorter hemline that won’t drag in the sand. Tea-length or knee-length dresses are perfect for beach weddings, allowing you to move freely without worrying about tripping or getting your dress dirty. Plus, they showcase your footwear, whether you choose sandals, wedges, or barefoot chic.

We have a wide range of cute mini dresses which are perfect for all wedding occasions. These chic short dresses are perfect for an abroad wedding and also other wedding celebrations including hen do dresses and evening wedding dresses.

Choose a Breathable Design

With the sun beating down, it’s essential to choose a dress that keeps you cool and comfortable throughout the ceremony and reception. Look for dresses with breathable designs, such as open backs, illusion necklines, or spaghetti straps. These features not only add a touch of romance to your look but also allow for better airflow, keeping you feeling fresh and relaxed on your special day.

Consider Practicality

While you want to look stunning on your wedding day, practicality is also key, especially for a beach ceremony. Consider factors like ease of movement, weather conditions, and potential wardrobe malfunctions. Avoid dresses with heavy embellishments that could weigh you down or catch on things. Additionally, consider bringing along a wrap or lightweight cover-up in case the ocean breeze picks up or the temperature drops in the evening.

Don’t Forget About Accessories

Accessories can enhance your bridal look and tie in with the beach theme. Consider opting for delicate jewellery, such as pearl earrings or a seashell necklace, to add a touch of coastal charm. A flower crown or a tropical-inspired hair accessory can also complement your beachy vibe. At TDR Bridal we have a stunning range of veils, jewellery and hair accessories. 

Schedule a Fitting

Once you’ve found the perfect beach wedding dress, be sure to schedule a fitting to ensure it fits like a dream. Take into account any alterations that may be needed, especially if you’re planning to wear heels or have the dress hemmed. A well-fitted dress not only looks better but also allows you to move with confidence on your big day.
