Many couples plan of a beach wedding. This is a romantic setting for the start of a new life and there is nothing better than the sand and the stars with the splashing waves to witness the wedding oaths. As with other things like the stage, the tables, carpet etc. even the bride’s gown should match with the color of the sea, the sand and the palms lined along the beach. One can choose from a variety of wedding dress that suit the waters and the waves and add to the grace of the bride.
Beach wedding dresses should be simple and elegant. They shouldn’t be gaudy or too flamboyant. One can choose white, a color that is pure and goes with any setting. Other colors that could look good for beach wedding dresses include ivory, cream, peach, faint blue or faint pink colors which don’t stare one in the eye and happily mingle with the color of the ocean and the sand. To add to the elegance the dress could have beautiful, sparkling stones or pearl set in the neck pieces. The trail should be detachable so the bride can enjoy a dance in the sand without worrying about tripping.
Beach wedding dresses could be casual and simple like the open sleeved, low neck without any frills. They could also be the Victorian summer gothic style with a few curls tapering towards the feet. Some of them are non-traditional and sometimes are up to the knees, allowing the bride to look fashionable and part of the whole beach setting.
The straps could be casual shoulder straps or the more trendy spaghetti straps depending upon the comfort of the bride. Some of the beach wedding dresses have a great flourishing end while some are more like gowns that just touch the feet without really trailing behind the bride. The sleeveless low necklines suit a hot summer day, and make the bride feel more comfortable under the sun. Some of the beach wedding dresses are strap less and suit the beach ambiance instead of giving the wedding a more formal touch.
The beach wedding dresses are usually of satin or chiffon, depending once again on the comfort of the bride and the season of the wedding. Summers could be sultry and some brides might go for the casual, vintage beach wedding dresses of cotton that keep them cool and more comfortable.
