How to dress for a beach wedding

You can really have fun with wedding fashion for a beachy affair. From full-length, floaty wedding dresses to casual-chic accessories, here are our top ideas for dressing for a beach wedding.

Darling dresses

Beach wedding fashion starts with a standout wedding dress. A classic bride might want to opt for a long gown in luxe lace or light chiffon, while a boho bride could choose a shorter hemline or a more casual fabric such as jersey or Japanese cotton. Non-traditional colourful wedding dresses are also popular at beach weddings if white is simply not your ideal choice. Turquoise or magenta are possibilities that will truly sparkle in the natural landscape.

Hair and makeup

Simple and ethereal, beach wedding hair should be loose and wild. Floral garlands made up of native flowers can be bold, while pretty roses or daises are more feminine and romantic. Make like a mermaid with voluminous curls blowing in the breeze or style your hair into an elegant but unfussy up 'do. Keep your makeup minimal and let your natural beauty shine through. The beach wedding is all about the magic of being sun-kissed, free and ready for a skinny dip at any moment!

Abundant accessories

Sparkly, open toed, strappy sandals are ideal for beach wedding fashion. A pastel pedicure in mint green or lilac or a delicate anklet can be complementary additions to your feet party. Choosing to go barefoot is also a trendy option at a beach wedding for the bridal party and guests alike – you will truly feel as though you are on a seaside vacation. A particular beach-inspired motif can work well in your jewellery choices. Starfish, sea horses and shell shapes are fitting as stud earrings and as charms on a necklace or bracelet.
