Now that you’ve chosen your bride squad, it’s time to find them the perfect bridesmaids’ dress so they can strut down the beach in style. But here are some tips you might want to consider first:
Just because your destination wedding is in a tropical region, doesn’t mean you’ll always get the warm weather you crave. Be sure to check out the average temperatures after dark, as sometimes it can become quite chilly by the water. If you realize the location you select is generally cool after sunset, you’ll want to make sure your bridesmaids have a shawl or jacket to pair with the dress style you choose.
You’ll also want to make sure your bridesmaids are comfortable, as it’s a long day for all of you! Keep in mind a breathable, light material when you’re shopping –like chiffon or cotton, which is a popular option for most beach dresses. The casual look will be quite fitting for your sandy setting.
Not only will a dress with a light and flowy fabric appeal to your beachy wedding vibe, but your bridesmaids will thank you for sparing them from back sweat (yuck!). A light and flowy dress also moves easier for dancing and walking around the beach –which will pair nicely with the swaying palm trees in the background, don’t you think?
Speaking of movement, you might also want to consider selecting shorter dresses to avoid the hemline from getting dragged or damaged in the sand or water. Shorter dresses can also be cooler for your girls if you’re getting married in the primes of summer –when the temperatures are a real scorcher. Be careful not to go too short though – the beach can be windy. A higher hemline will give your squad a chance to show off their cute sandals or foot jewelry!
With the laid-back nature of a beach wedding, why dress your girls in something super formal and uncomfortable? A destination wedding should be easy and breezy to synchronize with the natural elements of your surroundings. So, take advantage of the unique situation you’re in with simple attire, and simply soak it in.
