Are you getting ready to plan your wedding ensemble? Are you on your way to dress shop and pick out the perfect veil? If you’re having a destination beach wedding, check out these tips for what kinds of attire to avoid first!
Some ensemble choices just do not work well for a destination beach wedding. You have to worry about many different elements with a destination beach wedding that you would not have to consider with a local wedding. For example, the weather and your travel arrangements can all impact the type of clothing you plan on wearing for your big day, not to mention the time of year and the season. You’ll need to keep wind, rain, and shine in mind while picking out your wedding day outfit.
Here are some ensemble choices you should try and avoid for your destination beach wedding:
A long, elaborate train or veil—Skip the crazy trains and veils unless you have your heart set on a very traditional, formal wedding. There is no point in being uncomfortable in the hot sun on your special day! Also keep in mind that the wind might be cool, so a matching shrug is a good option.
Heavy, intricate accessories—It’s also a good idea to stay away from heavy, chunky jewelry, or detailed accessories that require a lot of maintenance. The last thing you’ll want to have to do on the beach is adjust your hair, necklace, or earring accessories constantly. Opt for simple, chic pieces, even if your gown is very formal. You’ll be glad you did.
Stiletto heels—Unless you are spending the ceremony and the reception indoors, it’s a good idea to skip the heels. Even if you will be walking over a carpet of some sort over the sand, you might find yourself uncomfortable in heels on the beach. If you really want some extra height, consider a different shoe style, such as a thick wedge or platform, which will at least give you some better traction.
As you begin shopping for your destination beach wedding ensemble, keep these tips in mind if you want to stay stylish and comfortable.
