Best Dresses for a Beach Wedding?
Question: I'm looking for a wedding dress I can wear on the beach. Instead of a traditional dress, I'd like something lightweight and simple. What kind of style should I be looking for?
Answer: by The Knot
Brides, listen up! No matter where your wedding is taking place — on a beach or in a barn — you need to look for a style that is most flattering for your figure. Once you’ve determined the silhouette you want (sheath, ball gown, A-line), you can focus on the dress’s details. For you, try to stay away from heavy beading, which weighs a dress down. Look for light and airy fabrics such as silk chiffon or organza. Halter necklines also lend a more casual, beachy look. You may want to forego the long train, which is sure to accumulate lots of sand (yuck!), and the cathedral length veil, which could be really annoying in a strong ocean breeze. And if you decide you’re not up to baring your legs, be sure to have an extra pair of pantyhose handy: Bits of shells are sure to get caught in your stockings and cause snags.
