Choosing a Summer Beach Wedding Dress

Thursday, January 21st, 2016

It is common to find more weddings happening in summer when compared to the other seasons. Summer beach weddings are very popular among the couple-to-be as it can make the wedding a memorable and relaxing event. Being wed on the beach is considered very romantic and the couple would want to look their best for this special day. Choosing a summer beach wedding dress is not an easy task, as you need to consider more factors than a wedding dress to be worn indoors. Shopping for a beach wedding dress is a little bit different to shopping for traditional wedding attire. Find below a few tips that will help you to choose the right wedding dress for that special occasion on the beach.

Opt for the right fabric

A lot of importance has to be given to choosing the right fabric for your summer beach wedding dress. As it will be warmer in summer, it will be a better option to opt for lightweight fabrics so that you will stay cool and comfortable on that special day. Dress made using light fabrics such as cotton eyelet, chiffon, Georgette, crepe, cotton organdy, voile and organza should be a better option for a wedding dress for the beach.

Combine fabrics

You can combine more than one light fabric to create your wedding dress. You may have to opt for a designer dress as wedding attire that are made using more than one fabric is not easy to find. I you have the budget, you can find a reputed designer in town who should be able to design a wedding gown or dress using light fabric, that will suit your body type.

Do not forget the wind and sand

Beaches are usually windy and there is every possibility for a full skirt dress to be blown around in the wind. Beaches have plenty of sand and it is better to avoid dresses that have intricate lacework in them. It will be a good option to opt for casual but elegant wedding attire for your special beach wedding.

Avoid dresses with flowing trail

Do not buy long dresses that have a flowing trail, as it will be ruined while walking on the sand. Dragging the long trail on the sand can ruin the dress and your look.

Think out of the box

Do not restrict yourself to a wedding gown for your beach wedding. Tea length dresses will be a better option when compared to a full flowing skirt as it will look better in the beach environment and you need not worry about the hem, which can come in your way often. Other options that will look good for a beach wedding are column style dresses and princess style gowns.

Add colors

Colors like lavender, red, pink, mint green and pale blue can go well on a beach wedding dress. You can also opt for a light but peppy Hawaiian or tropical print for your dress, which will complement the beach wedding theme.

Accessorize

Use accessories to add sparkle to your wedding dress. Be careful while picking the accessories and make sure that you try them out with the dress to ensure that they complement the dress you have picked.

Simple Tips on Planning Your Beach Wedding

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

There is nothing more romantic than getting married in a sandy beach with the sound of the waves in your background, the smell of the air and the gentle breeze blowing through your hair as you exchange your first kiss as husband and wife. And since the elements are already there, all you will need to do is to just be present on your big day. But of course, you will still need to plan your great beach wedding to make it even more romantic.

Before you choose the perfect place, better check the weather climate for that particular date. Although it would be difficult to predict the type of weather you will be having, but at least the weather bureau has some early predictions about the climate and temperature that are mostly reliable. We are not actually forecasters, but at least settle with a date that is just a typical ordinary summer day to make it safe.

Check the beach if it is a public or a private beach since this will cause to extra problems when the place is overcrowded. Ask a county or the city clerk if you will need any permits for the premise because you may expect some limitations on each of them. Apply for such permits several months before the wedding just to be certain that everything is in order.

You will also have to plan the materials that you are going to use for the event like sitting chairs, special flooring to hold the chairs, tents, and so on. Although some beach weddings do not use special flooring for the chairs, but this can cause discomfort for the guests especially when the chairs start to sink in the sand. You can also rent some canopies just to avoid outdoor mishaps such as some wind hazards that could interfere with the wedding. Also prepare umbrellas for the guests and plenty of bottled water to show that you care for your guests.

And since you are going to have an outdoor wedding, make sure that you have a backup plan. Your main concern when having a beach wedding is if the weather would cooperate with you or if it would play tricks on you. Rain and winds can cause mayhem and may even ruin the entire wedding. It would be better if you can find a nearby building that can be rented, church or a hotel especially when the weather goes wrong. If you can carefully plan this, you will be glowing with happiness as you wear your beautiful bridal jewelry on your beach wedding.
