When shopping for beach bridesmaids dresses, use the same guidelines you used when choosing your own Beach wedding dress. Your bridesmaids play a big role in the wedding ceremony. Ensure they look great, feel comfortable and walk gracefully.
Bridesmaids and the bride should be dressed in the same style. If you chose a satin dress to wear at your beach wedding, choose a similar style for your bridesmaids. If you will be wearing an elegant, chiffon or organza dress make sure your bridesmaids dresses are coordinating too. That doesn’t necessarily mean identical, just don’t mix casual and elegant. Bride, groom and their entourage (bridesmaids and groomsmen) should look like a perfectly matched puzzle. The colors can vary but all the pieces must fit.
And speaking about the color, a beach wedding is great for being creative with them. You have the whole palette of gorgeous pastel tones and tropical colors. Why not play with them and maybe even choose a different one for each one of your bridesmaids? Be stylish and daring and do what Carrie Bradshaw did in her Sex And the City movie wedding. Adjust the dress colors to your bridesmaids personalities and physical appearance. We all know that not every woman has the same body type. As such, getting custom beach bridesmaid dresses is a good option so they all will look and feel great in their dresses.
Bridesmaids dresses can be long, tea-length or short. Their length doesn’t have to be the same as the length of your wedding dress but try not be drastic, just in case. Some say long dresses ought to be avoided for a beach wedding as the dragging over the sand tends to make them look dirty very fast. That is correct, but it applies only on those dresses with long trains. You can dress your bridesmaids (as well as yourself) in long dresses, just make sure the dress is short enough to not drag too much in the sand.
If you are worried about it getting chilly or windy you can pick out wraps or shawls for your bridesmaids too. When the strong wind suddenly starts blowing and the bridesmaids are wearing strapless or open-back dresses, wraps will keep them warm and comfortable. However, if the weather remains good, wraps can be a stylish accessory that completes their dresses and accents yours. For example “ you are wearing an organza dress and your bridesmaids have organza wraps. Now, that’s a well matched style! You may think this doesn’t have anything to do with the dresses, but it does. Combining the whole look for your bridesmaids is just as important as finding the perfect bridal attire “ a gorgeous bride and the beautiful bridesmaids are a must for a perfect beach wedding.
