Nothing shouts casual fun louder than a beach wedding. But trust me, there’
Destination weddings are fun, exciting memory filled events that the hosts, guests bride and groom will remember the rest of their lives. While you don’t have to be rich to have the gorgeous tropical wedding of your dreams there is no question that costs can escalate very quickly when it comes to preparing a wedding on the beach. Luckily for many prospective brides, the most common types of gowns for destination and tropical weddings are often some of the most affordable wedding gowns available. With shorter cuts on a hemline, nontraditional gowns and styles, linen materials and numerous colors the options for inexpensive wedding gowns for a destination bride are simple, sensible and some might say obvious.
A shorter, skirt style hem on a wedding gown is perfectly common for ocean side weddings. Particularly for ceremonies followed by pictures taken directly on the beach as is also very common after a tropical destination wedding. This alone can offer significant savings on custom and of the rack designer gowns. Linen is by far the most popular option for many brides, due to the comfort in both the tropical sun and the intense humidity. Linen is affordable and is easily custom tailored and holds color well for brides who go off white and bridesmaids dresses as well. Not every bride opts to wear white. For the truly funky and nontraditional colors that match the season, the beach or simply the theme the bride and groom have chosen. Off color gowns and dresses are traditionally more reasonable than a standard white wedding gown. This is particularly true with off the rack designer fashions who tend towards tradition and the increased prices that tradition sometimes affords.
All of these options can save a little while still offering a beautiful, tasteful and personalized option for the bridal gown in a destination wedding. The most important thing is to make sure the gown fits the budget and that the bride will be happy with the memories for years to come.
