How to Find a Beach Wedding Dress

If you have decided that your dream wedding will be held on a beach, where white sands, clear water and lush greenery would be the background of your wedding, you’d better find a dress that would look perfect in such a wonderful natural setting. The following are some guidelines on choosing your perfect beach wedding dress.


Set aside a budget for your wedding dress as this is considered as one of the highlights of your wedding. You can look at wedding boutiques for this type of dress. Some upscale department stores also offer beautiful wedding dresses perfect for the beach setting. If you want to splurge a bit, you can purchase a famous designer wedding dress. It’s worth the price because you only get to have a wedding once in your life, thus it must be perfect in every detail.


Going to a wedding boutique or to a designer’s to look for sketches is a good idea, you can also communicate to the designer on what sort of dress you have in mind so that the designer can come up with something that you really love. Another option is to look for a ready-made dress at wedding stores, upscale department stores or on the internet. The internet has a wide array of summer beach dresses which cater to your budget and needs.

Material and Style

Since the wedding will be held outside, choose a material that is very lightweight such as crepe, charmeuse, cotton eyelet, and chiffon. You should stay away from organza, brocade and velvet. You want something that you can walk and move in easily especially if you’ll be strolling on the sand with your loved ones. Getting a long flowing train isn’t advisable since it’ll get dirty in the sand which does not look good on the pictures plus you might accidentally trip over it. Your dress should look casual but elegant. Don’t forget to have a coordinating look with your groom. His outfit should also be hassle free and comfortable to walk around in.


Never buy a wedding dress if it doesn’t fit or is two to three sizes smaller than your normal size. Don’t think that a crash diet would magically turn you two to three sizes smaller. For most women who’s insisting they can’t have their wedding if they haven’t bought the dress they saw on the net or at the mall, the only option is to get a good seamstress to see if she can make any adjustment to make it look as if it was specially made just for you.


Wearing a simple headpiece on your hair would complete the look for your summer beach dress. A flower wreath on your head adds a taste of glamour without looking as if you tried too hard. This will also draw attention to the bride’s face and makeup. The bride’s makeup by the way should be as simple as possible using a liquid foundation with SPF, a light eye makeup, a sheer blush and a pink lipstick to keep her glowing all throughout the wedding.

How to Choose The Wedding Dress

Wedding day is a very important day in everyone’s life. It is a very difficult task to choose a beautiful wedding dress for every bride. As the wedding dress has a special meaning, every bride wishes to have a perfect dress for the wedding. The bride can be the most beautiful women in the ceremoney when she is in the wedding dress. It plays a very important role in the wedding.

You need to be patient and plan carefully when you make the choice of your dress. There are countless styles and fabrics for the wedding dresses, and you have to choose the right one for you. Traditionally, the white dress is most popular because white symbolizes purity and chastity. If you don’t want a white dress, you can choose from a wide range of colors: Champagne, Ivory, Pearl, Cream and so on.

Commonly, the fabrics for the dress are taffeta, satin, organza and so on. Before you start to choose the dress, you can have a look at some wedding magazines for inspiration. And also you can find a lot of wedding dresses on the internet. There will be many wonderful models on the web.

When you make your first visit to a bridal shop, it is great if you have already known what kind of style you want. In most bridal shops the sellers can give you good advice to choose the dress. The trained staff can help you not only to choose the dress, but also the matching accessories for the dress. You should make sure that your dress is not only pretty, but also comfortable. You can also have your own ideas about the dress and make the dress customized as you wish. In this way, you can choose the fabric, color, cutting ways, and other details of the dress as you want.

If you are in a limited budget, you can use a second-hand wedding dress. Nowadays, there are many shops that sell second-hand dresses which are in good conditions. Most of them have no differences with the new ones and are in low price. Meanwhile you can buy the dress from the internet. There are many online shops which sell the dresses for the bride. Because it is not possible for you to have a try of the dresses when you are shopping on the web, I suggest you be careful when you choose the dress. You’d better order the dress in advance, in case you need the dress changes as it may not fit you well.
