Beach weddings are now becoming a trend as they continue to gain popularity as time goes by. If you have ever been to one, you probably have in mind what you are going to put on. On the other hand, if you have received an invitation to a beach wedding and you have never been to one, then you most likely are scratching your head.
On several occasions, beach weddings are usually beautiful ceremonies that call for colorful and beachy wear. Most beach weddings have one thing in common so whichever beach wedding you are attending, try to maintain a playful and summer feel. Here are some Q&A for dressing to a beach wedding:
Can one wear jewelry?
Of course! In fact, have fun with it. Accessories such as coral jewelry, big colorful beads and gold trinkets embrace the seaside theme correctly and give you an adventurous experience.
What type of fabric should you wear?
When a beach wedding has been set for say summertime, the whole idea of the beach setup is to bring a serene, natural and free atmosphere. In that case, you need to go for comfortable, loose and cool fabrics other than heavy and stiff materials. A lightweight sundress or chiffon, for example, would look good on you.
What colors are the best fit for the occasion?
Color isn’t much of a big deal but you don’t want to look the odd one out. Think about the occasion- beach weddings are more of exotic and tropical hence anything from pink, pale, blue and peach to bright colors such as orange, yellow or parrot green would work well. Anything water-inspired and has pretty floral prints will also be perfect for a beach wedding.
What do you need to wear on your feet?
For a beach wedding, sandals make more sense than stilettos. High heels have no place in the sand for an occasion that would be all about embracing what nature has to offer. You do not want to have a difficult time walking on the sand as your 2-inch sole digs up holes on it. For such an occasion, your best choice for footwear is a pair of glam sandals with an impressive sexy touch. If a patio has been included in the setup, a couple of bock heels or wedge sandals would be comfortable and pleasant to balance on.
Short or maxi dresses?
Maxi dresses are fabulous for seaside occasions such as beach weddings. Care to go for one that has some sense of romance in it, you know, an off-shoulder, a strapless or one shoulder maxi dress. A high-low maxi is also an option when the full down to the legs thing is not your style.
Since beach sand always messes up long dresses that wipe the floor, a short, elegant dress would also be an excellent pick. As such, it doesn’t really matter whether maxi dresses or short dresses look good on you. Whichever your taste is, the point is to wear a dress that you can put on comfortably both at the wedding and at the reception.
