In weddings, the bride-to-be is expected to be the most excited person for the occasion. She looks forward to looking great in this very special event in her life. No doubt that looking for a wedding dress is among her top priorities since she wants to appear exquisite for her groom in their wedding.
Choosing the perfect wedding dress for your wedding is not easy though. Your choice will have to depend on several factors like the wedding location, your body shape, budget and wedding theme. A wedding dress that is suitable in an indoor church setting may not be appropriate for a beach wedding.
In traditional weddings, the bride will normally wear a ball gown or dress with a long train plus a wedding veil. But then, if you are planning to get married in a more different setting like on the beach, then you will have to choose a more suitable wedding dress.
Expect that in a beach setting, the weather can be sunny or rainy as well as windy. You might also be walking on the sand thus you will have to skip the long train for it will be difficult for you to move or walk on sand.
Below are several tips to help you choose the perfect dress for your beach wedding
Choose an easy to carry, lightweight dress
If you will be traveling to get to the wedding location, you must consider a dress that is easy to carry. Fabrics like silk chiffon are a good choice since they don’t wrinkle too much when wrapped. With a wrinkle free, soft fabric, you don’t have to worry about your luggage getting lost with your dress in it since you can just hand carry it and steam a little to remove the wrinkles.
Style must blend well with the setting
The design or style as well as the color of your wedding gown must mix well with the beach setting. Skip the ball gown and long trail because it will gather sand when you walk and you also won’t feel comfortable with a ball gown. Choose a mermaid or princess line style or a similar style with less design for it is more appropriate for a beach wedding.
Pick a style that suits your body shape
You need to be aware what styles suit your body shape and from there choose what style you want your couturier to make for you. You can also check bridal shops for a gown that you can rent if you’re on a budget. There are bridal websites also that can guide you on what style to choose based on your body shape.
